This is a rather small property located in one of the busiest areas of Vancouver. The hotel is not even seen from the outside but you walk into a small lobby and there it is.
It has its own parking, which is great in downtown Vancouver, its own restaurant, etc.
The rooms are large and well appointed. The bathrooms are spacious and modern. One of my favourite things: free wifi!!! Almost zero noise from the street and fairly good isolation between rooms.
The only reason why I take one star is because the wait at the reception for checkin and checkout was long. Even though they have three stations, there was only one people in the front desk. And it wasn’t that busy.
Other than that, it was a good experience and highly recommended.

Stayed: January 2018, travelled on business

I had an outstanding stay here in 2014 and have been coming back ever since. This is a converted apartment building - so anti-chain it's awesome. As a business traveller it has all I need but also all the unique charm that I like without being quirky to the point of inefficient.

The management has this almost addiction to constant improvement. Rooms are so contemporary and open (ask for a room on the higher floors, the views are spectacular and there are balconies).

This time I got one of the new bathrooms with a stand up walk-in shower WITH dual shower head and handheld - was heaven every morning.

Kureig coffee machine, fridge, I love the multi-charger device next to the bed.

My only disappointment is that in improving the pool, hot tub and steam/fitness area they are out of commission for quite a while - and I didn't see this on their site or here on Tripadvisor. So if the pool is a deal breaker for you, call ahead.

One of the other treats is their restaurant Abode. It's not the usual boring hotel restaurant. They have legit espresso and good food.

Another BIG bonus is the very urban location - Robson is alive at night in a charming (not noisy or boisterous way). There are ample restaurants nearby (cheap fast sushi across the street) and a pharmacy and this cute Japanese food store I love dropping into.

A 24 hour bakery cafe around the corner too and a very quick walk to the sea wall.

Highly recommend.

The room was larger than expected and quite comfortable for two friends traveling together. As advertised, it was a corner room with a balcony. It is well located for seeing the tourist sites for a first time visitor to Vancouver. The front desk is very helpful. There is one restaurant on the premises that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Parking is also available (although it would be great if it were included in the price of the room!)

Room Tip: Our room faced Robson Street but was still quiet. Must be the thick windows!

Hello lesliealyce,

Our tower's cruciform shape creates a favourite feature of the hotel, 8 spacious corner rooms per floor - all our rooms are corner rooms with 2 walls of windows + a bonus of your own private step out balcony to better connect with our beautiful city.

Pleased that you enjoyed our walk everywhere location on Robson Street with its amazing variety of shops + eateries for every taste and budget.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

We stayed here for three nights before departing on an Alaska cruise. It was our first visit to Canada so as always, first impressions are important. Blue Horizon didn't let us down. It is conveniently located and is neat and tidy - nothing special but all that was required for a short stay.

Stayed: May 2017
