Very well run, so clean, staff happy and courteous. The new bathrooms are fabulous, and the sheets were egyptian cotton. Quiet at night. Beautiful view. Great walkways surrounding the hotel.

On several occasions we have visited Granville Island, and on at least one occasion have eaten at the Granville Island Hotel. We had however never stayed at this hotel until this weekend. I bought my husband a "weekend getaway/theatre package" for Christmas, which included an executive suite at the Granville Island Hotel, dinner at the hotel, and tickets to a theatre production.

We could not believe the view when we walked into our room. It was outstanding. We didn't even turn on either of the two TV's while there - we just sat and looked out the window at the ever changing scenery. It was very hard to leave. Most everything else about the hotel was great as well - the size of our room, the friendly staff, a great dinner and breakfast, again with outstanding views from the dining room.

We only have two comments - we were planning on a "nightcap" when we got back from the theatre on a Saturday night at 10:30 - only to discover that both the dining room and the lounge were closed at this early hour. Not what we expected to find in Vancouver. Luckily we had our own wine, and raided the mini bar for some munchies. The only other comment is about the huge trees that are planted directly in front of the million dollar view. Fortunately the trees were not yet in bloom so we still had a great view, but that will be more limited in few weeks. While we love trees, it always amazing to us why they are not more strategically placed!

Overall a great weekend experience, and we will definately be back.

Our family travelled to Vancouver to attend a wedding. We had a wonderful time and we can easily recomment the Granville Hotel.
The rooms are small, due to it being an older building, but have been kept updated beautifully. The beds were very comfortable, with a large screen tv in the room too.
The bathroom was great, we all loved the rain shower!!
On the wedding day we had an afternoon stretch of time between events, so had a few family members come to our room for champagne and cheese etc. The concierge kindly supplied us with enough champagne glasses for us all.
Security in the building was excellent as well.
There were so many great restaurants and pubs etc to choose from within easy walking distance.
Sunday brunch was delicious, and reasonably priced, in the restautant downstairs. The views of the marina and park were lovely, and we were able to enjoy the Granville Island market too. The Market offers almost any ethnic food type you could desire, and fresh breads, pastries, coffee, and fresh fruits and veggies. Local artists offer goods of every kind, and price range too. There is even a Granville Island brewery!
All in all, a very great place to visit and stay.

Great location on the water, close to everything but not in the noisy business centre to which charming Aquabus ferries take you in a few minutes' ride over false creek. Modern rooms, well equipped with excellent beds, internet access, flat screen TV and bathrooms with showers that deserve their name. Friendly and professional staff at the reception and in the restaurant make up for my only point of criticism, the open kitchen in the restaurant area that many people might like but I don't favor. All in all great value for money and my favorite Vancouver hotel.

I travel a lot for business and I always look forward to staying at the Granville because I always get what I expect which is good value for the money and a very nice stay. The service from employees is always professional and courteous, the room is extremely clean, the restaurant food is good and the view is impeccable. The location of this hotel is second to none! Will keep coming back without a doubt!
