My Mum and I stayed at this hotel for 14 nights. Can you say HI to sandy and jane please. The room was very nice and the food was very nice as well (the fish and chips). the transport to capilano suspeion bridge was easy to get to and the sky train was easy to use

Room Tip: Higher floors have less a/c unit noise

Revision of Review 9/25/13 which, instead, I’d erroneously posted under Robson Suites, a different hotel in Vancouver.

We actually stayed in Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel (near Yaletown) 3 different nights as part of a Pacific Spirit Tours package. The 1st night we stayed in a nice room but certainly not like the last 2 nights (when we were upgraded to a fabulous suite – REALLY upgraded!!). In fact, that 1ST night, two ladies on the elevator were talking about their fabulous rooms (up higher) from which they could see everywhere! So, we did wonder at that time if there were different choices. Looking back, it may be they, if possible, sometimes upgrade returning guests or perhaps it was because they’re highly recommended by the Pacific Spirit Tours, not sure.

But the price given if we’d had to pay ourselves for the last two nights (instead of part of our tour package) would have been several hundred dollars. Our balcony those last two nights stretched from the living area past the bedroom window. What a view! I later learned this was the king premier suite. And, there may be few like it in the entire place. At any rate, the next time we go back to Vancouver, I’ll stay at this hotel – if for no other reason than its location which seems to be near about everything we like except for the Stanley Park area. Of course, the city’s transit system is wonderful.

We ate all our breakfasts down by the library at a little GF coffee shop/bakery/cafe (delicious).
A few blocks away from the hotel one can hop on an underground train and then go to the Main station – from there, one has several options as to where and even how to go (a fast transit boat over to North Vancouver being one of them), another train to Chinatown, or a skyride type transit. We were told that skytrain meant not only the skyride itself, but, also the underground train and the fast boat. We walked at night and felt quite safe, plus people all around were very helpful. At one point, a fireman in front of a nearby fire station walked over & offered to help us when he saw us looking at a map. He, too, had restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. Plus, that gorgeous Vancouver City Library is across the street. The hotel is maybe 4 or so blocks from cute little water taxis one can ride across False Creek area to shop & eat at Granville Island. So, by staying at this hotel, we saved money & time that would have been spent on several taxi rides, plus we felt safe walking near the hotel at night.

The hotel staff is outstanding - from the desk to the doorman. Actually, I think the manager, Jim Miller, has been working there for nineteen years. He's very proud of the hotel and seems eager to know all guests enjoy their stay.

I must admit, what we were upgraded to was perhaps the nicest suite we'd ever stayed in! But I will not review it because we normally would never stay in such an elegant suite. I did take a lot of photos of the city from its balcony.

I do not know anything about the parking situation because both times we came in a taxi from the airport. It’s certainly worth your time to check this hotel out!

Room Tip: If views are important to you, magnificant views of Vancouver are part of the charm of this hotel.

We stayed here in here on our first night in Canada and having just got off a long haul flight from New Zealand we wanted a shower and good night's sleep. The room we got was spacious, we'll appointed and very comfortable. The hotel was in easy walking distance to downtown Vancouver and some great restaurants. We also went to Rosie's which is the hotels diner where we had breakfast - good also. I would stay here again.

We used a Groupon coupon to book this hotel, and we were extremely happy with it. not only is it a great location (many sites are walkable from here), but the management could not have been nicer. They were unbelievably helpful when we wanted to add another room (the basic timeshare unit is not really suitable for 4 adults). I would go there again in a minute.

We stayed 2 nights at Rosedale on Robson and were really happy, the bed was comfy the room was clean and the hotel had everything there that we required. We found everthing was in walking distance and the staff were FABULOUS. Friends we were travelling with required medical attention the desk staff had them at a doctor immediately.
We are planning on returning to Vancouver and we will stay here again.
We left here to take an Alaskan cruise so many of the passengers were also staying here and everybody was more than appy.

We are a retired couple from N.Z. who stayed at the hotel for 5 days on our overseas trip. This was amazing value and we could not find fault with anything. The rooms were excellent, very clean with a comfortable bed. The suite was so roomy that we could really relax. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very close to all amenities including shops to buy provisions. We will certainly be recommending to other friends to stay here when they visit Vancouver and we would love to come back!.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the roof garden which gave us a very pleasant outlook.

The hotel was mediocre at best. It was outdated, and kind of out of the way. I would have preferred to stay closer to Granville Street where there is more action. The hotel room was SUPER outdated; it had a kitchen for some strange reason, but no real conveniences like a mini bar or a full size ironing board. There was an awkward sitting room which didn't make sense to me, with a TV that looked about one hundred years old.

For a trendy Vancouver stay, this is NOT the place you want to be.
