“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days in early November. It's hard to beat this hotel for value. Rates were very good (we booked via a travel site); location is excellent: the Hop-on Hop-off bus (buy the two day pass) stops at the hotel, and most attractions in downtown Vancouver are within walking distance; Burrard St is a major artery for public transport (e.g. you can get the direct bus to University of British Columbia/the Museum of Anthropology or to the waterfront almost in front of the hotel); there are supermarket, convenience and liquor/wine stores less than five minutes away; and Robson Street shopping is only a 10 minute walk.
The room (ours was on the 21st floor) was superb: spacious; a fully equipped kitchen; a generous sitting area; reliable temperature control.
Front desk Staff were excellent and room cleanliness was of the highest standard.BTW on your trip back to the airport take a taxi to the Yaletown Canada Line Station and take the train to the airport. Less than $10.

I agree with many of the other reviewers that this place is a bit tired and dated in the rooms.

That said, the bed was comfortable, the staff were courteous ad the location was unbeatable--especially for the price.

I was also in a room directly opposite the elevator and while I normally would have asked for a change to avoid the noise, I figured it wasn't worth it for the one night I was there and in the end, I didn't hear a thing all night. So, dated it may be but comfortable and soundproof too!

This is a good option if you're looking for a central downtown location on a budget.

The Century Plaza is my fav place to stay when I visit Van. I love the kitchenettes as they are so convent and make the room feel very homey. The rooms boast a great view of the city and are very spacious with a good layout. The service and staff are consistently excellent and a huge factor as to why I keep coming back. I really have nothing negative to say about my stay even the coffee in the cafe was coffee. I look forward to my next trip to Vancouver.

Great stay-cay location! Nice clean rooms. Great views from 24th floor. The kind staff were very accommodating for traveling as a family. Would never find this quality of hotel for the same price in Victoria!

Read some of the reviews about the rooms being a bit dated. That is true but I was not here for the upholstery. Great location as you can walk to the Aquabus and get over to Granville Island. The Beyond Restaurant served up a dinner that was outstanding. We used Travelzoo which included $20 a day credit for the restaurant and would sign up if the offer became available again. Free Wi-fi was a good signal strength and free parking was a real bonus as parking can be very expensive in Vancouver. There were sirens as mentioned in some other reviews, but my thinking is that if you encounter some medical condition is is good news to be just down the street from St. Paul's Hospital as opposed to being in Likely, B.C ; ) Request a room higher up to minimize this; on the 28th floor it isn't too bad and the views are breath taking.

Room Tip: Executive suites higher up are the way to go.
