Coast Coal Harbour Hotel by APA
Ranked #13 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We only had one night in Vancouver. Booked this via Hotwire, and couldn't have been more pleased. We arrived via cruise ship on a Sunday morning. Since our ship arrived at Ballantyne instead of Canada Place, I had worried needlessly about an expensive cab ride. It was less than $10. Also had no problem checking in before 10am! We got lucky because they didn't appear to be too busy. Maybe because it was a Sunday in May? Anyway, we were very grateful!

We found this hotel to be friendly, spotless and we loved that it is so green-friendly. Thankfully, I had read on line that king rooms are upgrades here (whether you've booked through a site like Hotwire or just straight-out)...so I knew not to get uptight about it. Our double room was just fine, and the beds were very comfortable.

Having never been to Vancouver before, we knew nothing about what kind of location we needed or wanted. Worried way too much about it beforehand. This location was GREAT. If we had arrived via Canada Place, we could have even walked here if we wanted to. We did indeed walk everywhere.

TIP: Look up the "Tour Guys"...they do FREE walking tours. We met up at a nearby fountain at 11am for the tour of the day, which was, in our case, a tour of Chinatown. Awesome! Robson Street is within easy walking distance, as is the GasTown area. I'm sure there were many more as well, but we only had one day so we couldn't discover them all.

If you happen to be at this nice hotel on a Sunday night as we were, be sure to check out Preston's restaurant/bar. We had already eaten or we would have tried the food because it looked good...but we did enjoy the bar, and Sunday night was the night to do so due to great drink specials! If you run into ridiculously expensive wine in Canada like I did, you will LOVE the Sunday night $6.00 wine special!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this clean, comfortable, quiet, friendly hotel!

Our recent stay at the Coast Coal Harbour hotel was FANTASTIC! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a smile and a genuine "How may I help you!" The staff throughout the hotel were amazing, but a shout out to Gustavo and Jeremy at the Front Desk! Amazing. You took your time to tell us about the hotel, and help out two very lost girls navigate downtown Vancouver! The food at the restaurant is great, totally recommend eating there!

Location is great, just a short walk to the Harbour and Gastown. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room was beautiful with the floor to ceiling windows and lovely view of the harbour. Decor is well thought out, fresh, light and clean. The staff is always willing to help with whatever it is you need. Don't have to wait in line either, someone is right there to step in an help out.

Can not say enough great things about this place. Will stay again for sure!

Room Tip: As for a corner room if possible. View is amazing

This hotel is in a perfect location. A stone's throw from the Seawall and Stanley Park, Vancouver Convention Center, Gastown and Robson St. It has a very sleek and modern lobby with adequate size rooms. The parking is a bit pricey, but, it is Vancouver after all.

Room Tip: Views are definitely hard to come by but rooms up higher would have a better chance of glimpsing Coa...

Pretty good hotel! Very comfortable, large room, clean and new. Not luxurious or anything like that, but it's better than the usual kinda hotel. Recommended!

location is great if you want to be in Coal Harbour, but it is a bit of a walk to more livelier areas. It's quiet in the evenings.

Room Tip: There are tall buildings obstructing views of the harbour, but it's nice enough. Not sure if it...

I can't begin to tell you how excellent my stay at the Coast Coal Harbour was. It started with the staff and finished there too! Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! The room was both comfortable and very accessible. Doorways and hallways were easy to navigate and the room was very well layed out. Everything was very easy to find! The staff were friendly in a very real way and they were definitely the highlight of my visit. The hotel is in top condition! If you are lucky enough to get a 'view' room, do take the opportunity! You won't be dissapointed!

The end of a holiday can often be a stressful thing. Certainly in our family as I do like things to be just as I want them and it's difficult to get everyone else to do exactly what I want when I want them too!
So as we approached the last couple of days of our recent stay in Canada it was with a bit of trepidation that I booked a night at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel via an online app on my Ipad.
My wife, 23 year old son and I arrived and had adjoining modern, clean, well presented rooms. The valet parking had brought our luggage up and there was a lot of it as we had taken ski's, boards, boots and clothes for the day as well as the other stuff we couldn't do with out. All not a problem.
The bar was great with friendly staff. The concierge gave us helpful hints as to where to go and get a great meal and all in all, we left feeling refreshed and ready for the long flight home.

Our stay at Coast Coal Harbour was very enjoyable. This hotel, which opened about 3 years ago, has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with modern styling. Our room on the 18th floor had harbour views. We would return again.
