“Deserves its #1 ranking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We loved our stay at L'Hermitage! We stayed for four nights as we vacationed in Vancouver. The location is terrific -- steps away from Yaletown and just a few more to Gastown and the main shopping area on Robson Street. (By the way, we LOVED Yaletown. It's just so cool. Endless restaurants/bars, seemingly all with outdoor seating, intermixed with shops. And, like I said, it's practically next door to L'Hermitage)

We opted for a one bedroom boutique suite, which was a spacious 640 sq. ft. Since we were staying for multiple nights, having the extra space was totally worth it. Oh, and we had a balcony for enjoying Vancouver's beautiful summer mornings and evenings. So awesome.

You should know that through the Fall, there is some pretty major construction going on directly across the street. I forget what the official "posted" times for them to work are, but they start between 7:30-8 in the morning, and later on weekends. It seemed like they wrapped things up around 5-5:30 in the evening. Anyway, this didn't bother us because we're early risers and we were out doing stuff most of each day.

Having the pool was a godsend. It's pretty small, but being able to take a dip felt amazing.

The folks who staff the concierge desk are great. They assisted us with directions, recommendations, and even reserved taxis ahead of time for us. Both times, a cab was waiting out front precisely when we asked, and the front desk called our room to let us know that the cab was waiting.

I almost forgot to mention the Wi-Fi. It's blazing fast, which is a rarity for hotels!

All in all, if you're looking for an oasis in the middle of a busy city (and you've got enough money to upgrade to one of the bigger rooms), don't hesitate to stay here.

If we ever come back to Vancouver, there's no doubt in my mind where we'll stay.

What a fantastic staff and hotels. The entire staff was so very friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful and can't beat the location for being close to everything as well as the sky train. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Our room was modern and luxurious. The restaurant was great. We took advantage of the all you can eat breakfast each day. The location was perfect (very central to all neighborhoods and attractions). The best part of our stay was the staff. Incredibly helpful and pleasant. They went out of there way to make sure we were happy. We would highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here on our next trip to Vancouver.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and we loved it! It is right in the midde of the centre, in the neighbourhood of the shops and restaurants. The staff is friendly and the rooms are very clean and beautifull.

We had 5 days of business and pleasure in Vancouver so stayed here. They gave a us nice suite with a balcony and electric fireplace, a bit cheesy but nice none the less.
Great Staff, amenities and location for getting around the city.
We would stay here again.

We enjoyed the luxury of a beautifully decorated suite with a full stainless steel (Bosch) kitchen, eating bar, big sitting room, balcony and even our own personal washer/dryer located in a closet inside the unit! The only downside was that the bathroom had only one sink and a very small counter with not much space for toiletries and the like. The front desk staff was very friendly and efficient, if not a little over the top, willing to help us with each and every little thing we needed or wanted to know. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying there again if the budget allows!

Room Tip: We had a nice room overlooking the pool area on the quiet side, but did not see any of the other roo...

Stayed in the 2-bedroom suite on a weekend visit to Vancouver before taking off on an Alaskan Cruise. The suite was very well appointed, comfortable, and spacious. Loved the fully stocked kitchen, Nespresso coffee maker, comfortable beds, and the little sitting room/office. The in-room washer/dryer also came in very handy. The service was outstanding - every single staff member we met was extremely helpful and interested in making our stay a great one. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were very happy with the 2 bedroom suite
