“Great spot for waterview dining”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We went here for dinner with friends while wandering around downtown Vancouver. The views of the waterfront are amazing, although since it had been raining we weren't able to eat outside. The meals are a good size - the 4 of us shared 2 appetizers, a main each and one dessert with 4 forks. We all had pasta dishes, which ranged from good to great. Service was very efficient and friendly. Wine list was reasonably broad. A great place to savour that special Vancouver vibe!

Room Tip: Book a spot on the outdoor patio for the best view!

Calling the room we were given as a balcony is a bit of a joke.
More of a shelf which contained two chairs without enough room for a table of any sort
Pity as the staff were fantastic as was the location......

Dear Wullg

Thank you for writing a review on Trip Advisor - I'm sorry to hear about the balcony, I know there are few places nicer to sit on a beautiful Vancouver day. If you happen to be in town again, please give me a call, and I'll find you a larger balcony. Every room is a little different here, and there are some larger balconies too.

All the best,
John Fialkowski

The hotel premises are regularly upgraded and and beautifully maintained. Front desk staff are, without exception, friendly, observant and welcoming. The hotel is situated in a fantastic setting with water views and beautiful walkways.

Our stay at the Granville Hotel was fantastic and we will definitely return although the parking situation may be enough to turn us to a different hotel for our next visit to Vancouver. When charging $12 per day for parking one would think you would have a stall to park in. Other than that is was perfect.
