“Excellent family orientated hotel”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights prior to a cruise. Location is excellent. Close to restaurants and shops. Opposite a large food store. All rooms are suites- so typically you have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a small equipped kitchen, balcony and a large living space!
Staff were attentive and helpful.

Stayed August 2010, travelled with family

The Carmana Plaza was a nice hotel to stay in. Our first room at the start of our holiday was very spacious and very clean - with a nicely fitted out kitchenette. Our only complaint was the soft bed - which made for a bad night's sleep. On our stay at the end of the holiday, we stayed on the 30th floor - which had magnificent views over downtown Vancouver. The rooms were both of a very good size.

The Room: We had a standard suite with a Modern Interior (room no 804). We really liked it: it is clean, light and everything you need is provided (great kitchen!). We could imagine that some travelers find it a little sterile, but Carmana also offers a more traditional suite. The big plus of the room are the “top-floor” windows and the view (see pictures). A little dissapointing is the fact that you have to pay almost $10 for one day internet...

Location: The hotel is located at Alberni st. (a very short walk from Robson st.). Parking your car in a parking lot will cost you an add. $15. There is no breakfast room or restaurant, but…. your in Vancouver: so go out and search for it! If not: there is a Supermarket across the street and a BC liquor store nearby. The downside of the location (in the middle of a city) is the noise early mornings (trucks unloading, trucks emptying garbage containers)

Staff: The staff is courteous and helpful.

Conclusion: When we go back to Vancouver, we’ll stay at Carmana again!

Very good location in central downtown Vancouver. This is a clean well run hotel. Although the checkin seemed somewhat impersonal. The underground parking lacked signage, so one could find their way back to the lobby and elevators.
The rooms were very spacious, and modern with full kitchen suite facilities. The parking was $15. per nite.

Perfect location for exploring the City and close to the Canada Line for airport links. Tour buses and public transport nearby as well as Sky harbour
Rooms were large and perfect for a family with access to two bathrooms. everywhere was spotless though sparse but hey, how much time do you spend in a hotel room anyway. Could have done with some more pictures on the walls though.
Gym and laundry facilities were spot on and the deli opposite provied a good range of food stuffs including cooked meals to take out.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and helped deliver our 'lost' son back to the right floor with a minimum of fuss despite the tears.
Overall this is much preferable to a hotel room. My only complaint was the exhorbitant charge for internet access (but the front desk recomended a cafe nearby with free access in any event)

Family on holiday for three nights with two yound kids (7 and 4). Two bedroom apartment on 29th floor. Absolutely great stay. Slept so well. Apartment is a great size and well appointed. Very good kitchen which we cooked in all nights. Plenty of space for everyone. It was a corner apartment with amazing views of the city too.

Great location. 20 minutes walk to Stanley Park. <5 minutes walk to various forms of transport and city. 10 minutes to Canada Place. Great supermarket across the road and a liquor store next door. Heaps of restaurants.

Front desk staff were great - really went out of their way to help. Room cleaning staff were a little slow. Came home at 4 pm one day and they were just starting our room and wanted it for an hour! But I am nitpicking.

Highly recommended.

The hotel is cheaply constructed, poor soundproofing and the street noise at night is terrible. the room fit out is sparse, and basic. Staff are generally smiling but indifferent to your needs, the hotel has limited resources, and other than the location, there is nothing to recommend about this hotel.
