Stayed 5 days for a combination work/sightseeing trip, rooms are large and comfortable, and in excellent condition. Had a king suite, great comfortable bed and as a bonus, had a large balcony overlooking the city. Nice workspace with lots of places to plug in your electronics, room even included a teakettle for a nice touch. Bathroom had a great shower with a rainhead, and always soft clean towels.
Staff was all friendly and helpful, and pleasant which is probably due to being in Canada, where the citizens are usually more friendly than in some parts of USA. Well, with the exception of Montreal, the locals there make you feel as welcome as a swarm of mosquitoes in a nudist colony. But this review isn't about Montreal, it's about Vancouver!
Vancouver itself is a great city to spend a few days exploring, very walkable town with many public transportation options. It's not necessary to have a car for exploring the downtown areas, and with a little planning you can access everything down to the YVR airport. It's best if you are in reasonable shape, however, as we covered 10+ miles walking each day. You can buy a day pass for the Hop On Hop Off bus which will pick you up at the front door of the Marriott and drop you near your destination of choice, but I never did during my stay, didn't find it necessary. We did take a free shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge which was a fun way to spend a half day. The shuttle dropped us off near Stanley Park (just ask the driver nicely!) saving a little bit of walking.
