Do rent bikes, this City has amazing bike lanes, completely safe, the cafes and scenery along the way, make it a memorable ride.
Do go to the little Granville Theater, truly talented actors!
Definitely stay at the Granville Hotel, it's at the hub of the island activities, perfect for sightseeing, and you can rent a bike from there as well. The rooms have marble floors, great showers, sparkling white linens on the beds, and the most friendly staff in the world ~ they reflect not only the hotel, but the people of Vancouver, a very welcoming city for tourists!

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel with family and guests for our daughter's wedding. We all enjoyed walking to the nearby shops and galleries on Granville Island. The Dockside Restaurant did and amazing job with excellent food and attentive service for the reception and the view from the dining room over False Creek is spectacular

We recently spent a week at the hotel for the wedding of our nephew. Great service. Front desk employees were outstanding; friendly, patient, accommodating, informable. Housekeeping was prompt and kept our room spotless and we felt we were in the comfort of our home. The Dockside restaurant was excellent in presentation and quality. All of the employees seemed happy to be working and so friendly to us. The shops and restaurants on the island are fantastic and unique. Never had a bad meal and never had bad service. The public market is one of the true gems of the island. Fresh fruits, veggies, meat, soups, etc all reasonably priced. Don't forget the chocolates! The spirit and dedication of Canadians to visitors is second to none. Halibut fish and chips anyone!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and stay in a "superior" room on the water. Request third floor (top floor)

Location is awesome, hotel needs to provide better ammenities for guests, such as in room movies, not just cable tv.
The restaurant should be open later every night, at least until midnight.
Room service should be offered until at least midnight or one in the am, again to accommodate guests.

Definately need to do something about the mattresses, they are so hard, I always end up with a sore back and toss and turn all night trying to get comfortable.

We love the location on the island and that is why we stay at the hotel, but you need to make the guest want to stay in the room not just use it as a place to sleep while enjoying granville island.

Comfortable, welcoming boutique hotel on the eclectic Granville Island. Exceptional ambiance at the Dockside restaurant with views over the water on a lovely summer evening while enjoying a great meal and beer from the micro brewery. We had a standard room which was a good size with king bed, clean and well equipped. There was some noise from a wedding party on the waterfront but nothing to disrupt our night. Next time we would upgrade to a standard room with a balcony so we could sit out and enjoy the sunset or morning air. Parking is somewhat limited until later in the evening when the weekend crowds went home.

You can't go wrong with the location of this nice hotel, right on the waterfront of Granville Island with all its arts, crafts, and fresh foods; beautiful park-lined walkways to Kitsilano and False Creek; steps to the water taxis to take you across to all that downtown and the West End have to offer. The king room we stayed in was spacious and nicely appointed with a separate sitting area. There was some noise with the pier and walkway right out the window--noisy groups talking loudly into the wee hours. Otherwise terrific!

Clean, nice hotel with very professional and friendly staff. Dockside restaurant is absolutely wonderful. We sat on the patio/pier on a sunny day it was delightful. Restaurant staff was as great as the hotel staff. Highly recommended.
