“Nice.”
Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

This hotel was rather unique, at least to me. We had two rooms, adjoining, but we entered a door that was opened by the keys to either room and then we used the same key that would open one room but not the other. The other party could not go into our room, either.
I felt doubly secure with this arrangement.
I entered the room to find a single queen bed, which meant that my room was quite spacious. Although I would prefer a king bed because I am 6'4" I was able to manage quite well. The bathroom was quite well appointed. The candies in the tray at the coffee station was a nice touch.
The extended continental breakfast was quite adequate considering the room was less than $100. for a Friday night room so close to downtown.
I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very much for your review, I am very happy to hear that you were pleased with your stay and we hope to see you again in the near future. Just so you know for future stays if you liked the double door configuration the 1st floor is the only floor that has these double doors and they are all rooms with a single Queen bed.

Thank you,

Beds were hard for me and the building is old so the rooms are quite small I did like the free underground heated parking The hotel is simple and was fine for 2 nights stay It is short driving distance to Granville Island, downtown and stanley part. Close to downtown with out being right down town Our internet and TV was down for most of the day which wasn't to much of a convince and the hotel staff didn't know why.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your review of our hotel, I am sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us, regarding the bed, we do have a fairly neutral bed that is of medium firmness, but if you would be so kind as to email the hotel at info@bestwesternvancouver.ca with your name and room number we will have a look at that particular bed to see if perhaps it needs to be replaced.

Thank you

Close to downtown, transit, restaurants. We've stayed here a few times, and the staff remember special requests we made on past trips. Clean rooms. Great breakfast! Love the view of the mountains from our room on 10 Ave. Underground parking is a little tight if you have a large vehicle.

The Best Western Uptown was not our first selection of stay while visiting our son in Vancouver for our very first time, but we are very glad we did end up staying there. It was a very friendly staffed hotel, with clean rooms, and conveniently accessible to Downtown City centre.
Would definitely stay there again or another Best Western hotel as Uptown has laid down a standard.

Me and my husband stayed here as a stop off really to save long transfers during the night. We arrived at the hotel pretty late, around 1.30am and the night man Lance couldn't have been nicer, really friendly and welcoming which is always a good start to a stay! Room was big, clean with a comfy bed, it was a little cold on arrival but it soon warmed up. Breakfast was complimentary and had a fair range of choices, I didn't use the gym facilities however they look pretty good from a distance. We'd certainly stay again!

There are a lot of hotels around Vancouver, but we considered the area where most of our points of interest will be exploring, the kind of above average hotel expectations that would suit us and the ready breakfast to get a good start of our day.. This hotel suits all our needs, price was just fine for the value.
