“Wedding Bliss”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

My sister and I stayed here in preparation for my wedding at the Dockside Lounge. The room was amazing, even the sofa bed was comfortable to sleep on. The service was fantastic and professional. GIH has the perfect combination of everything - location, food, amazing customer service. Would definitely recommend this hotel as the place to stay in Vancouver.

Pleasant boutique hotel ideally located with good facilities, if small rooms and tiny balconies. Noise from dockside restaurant disturbs a quiet visit.

But we arrived to find they had cancelled our reservations without trying to contact us, having had our credit card declined due to an incorrect expiry date citation. They then lied that they had no rooms available, finally finding two after a lot of public fuss in which we rejected one room offered. They seriously insulted us by suggesting, in front of other guests that we had inadequate credit!

My wife and I stayed at the Granville Island Hotel the night after our wedding. She had also stayed there with a bride's maid the night before the wedding.

This was such a lovely treat. The room was really nice, the service was great, the view over False Creek was gorgeous and the room service breakfast was perfect for the morning after the wedding party. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful boutique hotel right on the water. Prettiest patio dining in Vancouver--we watched the full moon rise over the harbor and toasted it with champagne lounging on comfy sofas under the stars around a beautiful fireplace. Cool architecture, wonderful service. Perfect location, central to everything. Cannot say enough positive things. We stayed 3 nights, flew over to Vancouver Island for 3 nights, and came back to Granville for our last night. They held our luggage while we traveled out, and welcomed us back like family upon our return. We definitely recommend this as the place to stay. And we were referred here by our friends who stay in Vancouver for the month of August each year--to escape the Texas heat--it was 112 in Dallas the week we were there! Thank you for a lovely stay!

We love Vancouver and this was our 2nd time staying at the Granville Island Hotel. It is a few minutes walk from the Public Market and we enjoyed going for coffee each morning and people watching. It is so close to Kitsilano; 10 minutes from Yale Town and Robson St. They have bikes on the property that you can rent and go anywhere in the City. An easy, comfortable, gorgeous place to stay! Injoy!

Room Tip: If you can upgrade to the "executive suite" - it was just $25usd more per night - these ro...

I only had one night in Vancouver at the end of my trip after hiking the West Coast Trail and this hotel was recommended to me. It was fantastic. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and the views were outstanding. The location is great. You can walk to the market for shopping and to a large selection of restaurants. I had lunch at the hotel and the food was superb as was the service. I will definitly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view and balcony.
