We stayed here on many occasions and always want to come back. Because of airline schedules we always arrive at YVR about 10am. If booked room is not yet ready on arrival friendly staff arranges for replacement.
We happen to stay in the same room several times. Last time (this april) bathroom was completely renovated with nice shower stall (our preference) in stead of tub.
Globe and Mail in front of your door in the morning.
Great locations: take cab from YVR and rest (Grandville, downtown, Broadway) is walkable: good for us and good for the environment! (We are 65+).
No sirens in the middle of the night!!
Nice bright breakfast facilities.
Not much to not like.

Stayed at the Granville Island Hotel for a couple of nights.

Pros...
Location, location, location
Clean rooms
New updated bathrooms
Free WIFI in rooms
Good front desk staff

Cons...
Overpriced breakfast - didn't eat other meals here so couldn't comment
Quirky lounge that has no real character
Rooms are small

When on Granville Island check out the Sandbar Restaurant. The upper level overlooks the water and is literally underneath Granville Street Bridge - really cool!!!
If you're a runner take the seawall route toward Kits Beach - great trail for running!

What a spot ! Needed to stay in Vancouver for 3 nights for a health review at UBC. The people that work at the front desk are charming, very polite & helpful. The restaurant food was excellent. What better place to be than Granville Island. The only hotel there, so book early.

This is our favourite hotel in Vancouver and we come back every year. We love the friendly staff, the awesome location, very comfortable rooms and good food in both restaurant and pub. We like to walk to the market or to one of the many great restaurants Granville Island has to offer. New is the complimentary wireless highspeed internet connection, very convenient!
The only downside of this hotel is that there is a brewery right among the hotel. This causes some noise and smells in one wing of the hotel. We always ask for a room in the wing away from the brewery, which also has bigger rooms. If you come in a car, Parking is very expensive.

We recently stayed at the Granville Island Hotel. Our daughter got married on a cruise ship leaving from the island so the hotel was a perfect choice for our stay. We stayed both Friday and Saturday nights. The hotel staff was great, especially the valet out front of the hotel making sure everyone in our party found parking spots. The hotel is very clean, updated and cozy with great harbour views. Nice restaurant and lounge, we tried them both. Would highly recommend this hotel.
