The Century is a great location and nice lobby / coffee shop, but the room we were in was dated and dark. The spa has great treatments, but the change room is not very clean. We were on a couples romantic trip and it did not cut it.

Hotel is in great location and very reasonably priced compared to most others in area. But, the rooms are badly in need of renovations to update to this century. The lobby is beautiful, modern and get the feel of luxury with the spa located there. However, the rooms have a 1990s feel, with AC units rather than central air, carpeting that feels worn and decor that is old and uninviting. We had a suite that was spacious but included a kitchenette that felt 30+ years old. It was fine, clean and adequate in relation to the very reasonably price. But, I would not stay here again unless and until the rooms are overhauled. I'd rather pay more and to get a nice room the next time in Vancouver. If the owners made the investment, they could charge a little more and make back their money easily.

Stayed for two weeks on beginning of this month. Me and my girlfriend got the normal suite at 9th floor, we thought was huge, with a very good bedroom, nice living room and kitchen, a bathroom and a small closet. The only "problem" was the street noise, mainly because the hotel is located next to St. Paul's Hospital, so there was some sirens day and night. But it wasn't nothing that you can't live with.
The staff is, overall, friendly, very dedicated and helpful, aiding us from getting a cab to indicating how and where to get the shuttle to Whistler.
The hotel has a restaurant, a cafe and the spa. The cafe is a good place to quick meals and drinks but the restaurant stands out. We went there at the first night for dinner and had the Salmon pizza, which was surprisingly good, and several other times at the morning for the incredible breakfast, trying to taste every meals the menu had. Sadly we didn't have time to try the spa.
Now the location, where this hotel really shines out. The hotel is located at the Burrard street, one of the main streets of Downtown; there are two bus stops, one at each side of the street, right in front of the hotel; is near an always helpful 7/11 and the Davie street, where you can find a lot of nightclubs and it is famous by its LGBT approach; the free shuttle to Capilano Bridge stops in front of the hotel; you can walk 5 minutes to get to Robson Street, most famous for its stores (Forever 21, Victoria's Secret, Foot Locker, etc); you can walk for 10 minutes and you'll be at Burrard Metro Station.

Stayed here 3 times during our visit to BC, 3 nights and then 2 one night stays, either side of trip to Whistler. Efficient check in each time and free upgrade to suite for ech stay, final night, and 3rd stay of holiday, which was to celebrate a birthday, we were upgraded to a Penthouse suite. All rooms were very comfortable, with excellently appointed kitchens, and had good views over Vancouver. In two of the rooms we were higher than that Vancouver look-out tower! Very handy for public transport, buses outside the door and underground a short walk. We took a taxi from the airport when we initially arrived from the UK, but on subsequent journeys to and from the airport and bus depot we used the underground/ sky train system. Rocky Mountaineer to Whistler connecting bus picked us up, and dropped off, just opposite the hotel and hop-on hop-off trolley buses stop outside. Cafe very reasonable and good quality, used for take-away breakfast to eat in our suite. 4, not 5, rating because decor in need of update in some areas/rooms and single glazing means traffic noise if in rooms above the main road.

Room Tip: High and on back corner

The location was the major attraction as we were going to Bard on the Beach and could walk or catch the bus outside the hotel. Beyond Coffee had great snacks and drinks to take along on our daytime walks. First class and affordable.

We stayed here twice - either side of cruise to Alaska. The staff said that it was a pleasure to work for this family run hotel instead of a chain hotel. We had a complimentary upgrade to a suite and had superb views of Vancouver at night. The room had a well equipped kitchen, lounge, and bathroom. Coffee and tea were available. The location of the hotel was excellent for ease of sightseeing and travelling on the Hop On Hop Off buses which stopped outside the hotel. We ate at the restaurant and enjoyed the quality of the food at very reasonable prices. All guests are given a voucher for $20 discount at the restaurant and Spa.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the port have exceptional views
