Riviera on Robson Suites Hotel Downtown Vancouver
Ranked #47 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed 13 August 2012

I booked this hotel at the last minute when my flight back home to the UK was cancelled and I had an unexpected, but very welcome, extra night in Vancouver. It was cheap, and available.

However, I stayed in four different hotels in Vancouver during two weeks and I'm sorry to say this was the worst of the bunch. On the plus side, the rooms were spacious and airy, especially if you have both a window and the balcony doors open. They also have the funkiest LED lightbulbs that have a hundred or so LEDs in a bit of plastic the shape of a normal incandescent light bulb.

On the less positive side, the interior is dated (wallpaper peeling at the skirting board, broken drawers and old appliances in the kitchen), there is one slow lift (elevator) to serve all floors with a maximum capacity of four people. The WiFi was unusable (I'd been hoping to get some work done), any device I tried repeatedly disconnected and I couldn't load any web pages. To top it off, they charged $3 for the privilege of leaving my suitcase in a utility room in the basement after I'd checked out. Why does a hotel do this? It can't be a meaningful revenue stream and doesn't engender goodwill in its guests.

Reviewed 30 July 2012

The rooms are apartments with separate bedroom, bathroom and lounge with a kitchen leading off and a balcony. We were on the 7th floor and had views through the skyscrapers to the sea and the mountains. 10 minute walk and you are in the centre of the nightlife and shopping. The bus stop outside takes you down the hill to English bay beach and Stanley park. So what if the furnishings are a little dated, everything was super clean, lots of room, great location, eating places, shops very close and so great value for the price.

The lift was prehistoric but at least there was one and it did give us a laugh!

Room Tip: Good views from the higher floors
