“Vancouver's Gem”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Another stay at the best spot in Vancouver with a central location to both fun and business.
Great food and shopping all around the local area, with great sightseeing and adventure activities all close by too. A walk, run, skate, or bike ride around Stanley Park is a must in drier weather. Looking forward to coming back again, hopefully with less rain next time. :-)

My Wonderful Boyfriend and I had a Funastic little Valentine get way at the Granville hotel.
Everything from the service, to the room, to the wine ,to the chocolates, to the breakfast, to the long stem rose was Terrific!!!
The Valentine package included all of this for Very good value!!!!
We appreaciated the comfy kingsize bed and the harbor view too which added to the romance:-)
Bumbering, eating at the Sandbar, going to the Arts club, soaking in the jaguzzi and staying at the hotel was all good and is definately recommended for a quick little getaway.
Thanks Everyone!

I stayed the week of Feb 18th to 22nd and had a great stay.
The service was great by all of the staff. I had a few times during the week where I needed to speak to the front desk for different reasons, and they were very helpful.
I only used the restaurant for breakfast, but the food was Excellent and provided quite quickly. The views provided within the restaurant are spectacular of the False Creek waterway.
My room did have a fair size window to look over False Creek and a Easterly view which provided a beautiful morning sunrise.
My only complaint, and this is with Most Hotel Rooms now a days, is with older buildings that have a little bit smaller hotel rooms, they still put a King size bed in them, and I am not a fan of King size beds and don't think they are necessary.
In this room there was a King size bed which was Very comfortable, but due to the size I required to turn the desk chair to get out of the chair when I was using the provided desk to do some work on my laptop, and as the chair had the capabilities of raising the seat, if I wanted to get around the bed, I had to either lower the chair to place it under the desk or wiggle my way past the chair to get to the other side of the room. Again, only because of the King size bed.
No complaints with the Hotel, the staff or the amenities, and being on Granville Island, you have multiple places within walking distance to explore!
Excellent experience!
I would definitely stay again!

My husband and I stayed at the Granville Island Hotel during the 2013 Vancouver Boat Show. The hotel was listed as one of the hotels offering boat show rates, however, the hotel declined to honour the "boat show rate" as advertised on the Boat Show web site, claiming that the rate was advertised without its approval. Hotel management and the Boat Show organizers need to improve their communication in future years to avoid a repeat of this situation.

The hotel is well located and the ambience is pleasant. The staff are professional and courteous. Our room was small but very nicely furnished and with a good view. The bed was very comfortable and with very high quality bed linens.

The restaurant enjoys beautiful views over False Creek and the condo towers of Yaletown. Food quality, portions and service were good.

We had originally planned to bring our dog with us on this trip, but did not do so - however the hotel would be a good choice for guests travelling with a dog, since the hotel is surrounded by green spaces, boardwalks along the harbour and the Granville Market- all good dog walking/exercise areas.

Parking was very convenient.

We asked for a late checkout which was graciously provided by the front desk staff.

We had a great time on the island. Our room wasn't reason so we walked around and shopped until they called. Had a great harbor view with wonderful clean room. Service was great. Location was outstanding -- the water taxis are so much fun to take around the harbor.

We visit Vancouver often but have never stayed on Granville Island. The location is perfect. The Granville Island Hotel is so convenient for walking or riding your bike in every direction, taking a water taxi downtown and shopping Granville St. to the south. It's in the midst of the shops, restaurants, etc. but is tucked away so that it isn't noisy. The off season rates are great. We highly recommend it!

This hotel is in a funky artsy district with terrific views over
False Creek and the urban towers of Vancouver. Cozy rooms, nicely appointed. It has a very nice restaurant, but numerous other good eateries are only a stroll away.

Room Tip: Water views are a bonus.
