Reviewed 23 June 2014

Rooms: Spectacular rooms, just as advertised, spacious, brilliant views, luxurious bedding, iPod connection, great TV and seating area with a balcony.
Bathroom / Water: A little disappointed with the bathroom, not as luxurious as the rooms and what really let it down was the hospital style soap dispensers. High end hotels should offer quality toiletries.
Staff: Helpful staff although reception was quite chaotic at times and there was a bit of a wait to check in and check out but the area is quite small for the amount of rooms they have. The concierge were helpful but unfortunately they loaded our taxi to the airport without bags but missed two bags so we had to turn back to collect them all but in fairness we should have double checked.
Cleanliness: Really clean and no complaints.
Hotel facilities: Great onsite bar and eatery. The spa could do with a little tlc, it’s looking tired and old and doesn’t match the general high quality of the hotel.
Food: Onsite although okay there are many other places to eat around.
Bar: standard selection with good service.
Wifi: Very good wifi connection in the rooms.
Local Area: Brilliant location in downtown near to everything.
From the airport: Taxi costs approximately $35
Summary: In general, we loved this hotel and the rooms were fabulous. Just the spa and the hospital style soap dispensers and no offer to help with bags to the room, warranted a 4 rating but they are not major things and I would definitely stay here again, in general a great hotel.

Room Tip: Higher the better!

We stayed here for 1 night in June and the stay was overall very pleasant! We arrived at 1pm and were already able to check into one of the two rooms we booked. We booked a two-queen bed room but were upgraded to a family room on the 29th floor. It was huge! The room (or should I say bedroom suite) was a bit older but it was very clean! Beds were very comfortable. Very happy with the fridge and coffee/tea maker in the room and loved the Frette Towels.
Staff was very friendly!
We didn't have breakfast in the Abode restaurant so can't say anything about that.
The hotel is in a super location! Enough parking but a bit pricy (but that can be expected in a bigger city). The only thing is there is no real access directly from the garage into the hotel so getting your luggage on the trolley walking all through the parkade over the speed bumps is a bit awkward but not a big problem.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

Room Tip: The corner units (family rooms) on the 29th floor are huge! With an awesome view!!!

Fantastic hotel. Staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming... Much appreciated after a long flight. Hotel was easy to get to from airport and a fairly short walk from train station. Breakfast is definitely recommended. Rooms were clean and spacious. Ours had a balcony with a view of the city. Good base to explore the city further.

Upper floors each had large corner rooms with small balconies. Those in southwest corner had views over bay, in distance with no immediate buildings obstructing downtown views. Hotel with very friendly staff, classy recent renovation, and in downtown Robson locale. Easy to walk to underground metro (easy access to airport), Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, Stanley Park, and even Granville Island. The Capilano Suspension Bridge free shuttle stops right in front of hotel. Small indoor lap pool, hot tub, sauna and few treadmills on mezzanine level.

We booked two rooms - one king size and one queen size - one for ourselves and one for our teenage son. Both rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean and neat. The towels were new and fluffy, which was lovely, and the beds were comfortable. Each room had a Keurig coffee machine, a large screen TV and a safe. The wifi was both free and fast. The hotel itself is situated on Robson street, a shopping lovers dream. They also have parking available in the building, which makes life a whole lot easier if you have your own car. Matthew, the concierge, is a delightfully friendly person who I am sure will become part of the signature of the hotel. There is no room service in the hotel but there are plenty of excellent restaurants within walking distance. Rather than eating breakfast at the in-house restaurant (bad coffee and mediocre meals) we recommend visiting Cafe Crepe just down the street for a huge variety of breakfast options (omelettes, pancakes, full English breakfasts etc) . Also, be sure to ask house cleaning to clean your room early else you may have to wait until 3h30pm for a clean room. And lastly, the higher floors have better views so be sure to ask for a top floor when you make your booking. I would definitely recommend the hotel for convenience and value.

My daughter and I stayed here earlier this year for 2 nights for some 'staycation' time. From the moment we walked in the door, until the minute we left, we felt like VIPs. We were greeted warmly at the front desk and check-in was efficient and smooth. I had booked a room above the 15th floor and paid a little extra for it, as we wanted the views of our beautiful city. Did they ever deliver! We were on the 24th floor overlooking Robson Street with views of English Bay, the north shore mountains and Coal Harbour. Stunning! Windows all around the room gave lots of light and scenery to spare. The rooms were clean & the beds comfortable. The bathrooms were a little outdated, but as long as they are clean I really don't care what colour the tub is! :) Well done Blue Horizon, you are now my hotel of choice for future staycations in our glorious city.

Room Tip: When you book, it is definitely worth asking for a room above the 15th floor, with a view of English...

Great location for exploring Vancouver. Staff really helpful (special thanks to Concierge Matthew who's enthusiasm and helpful nature was really appreciated).
Great views from rooms and lots of space. Note no room service although nice on site restaurant.
Would recommend.
