Reception staff are wonderful and very helpful. But Rosellen is an old apartment building converted into rental units. Spacious but OLD. Location is a bit dodgey but convienent. Clean but so dated it doesn't feel that way.

Thanks very much for your comments. We are glad that you found the staff helpful and have shared your thoughts with them.
To clarify information about the building, the property was originally built in 1959 as an apartment building with its’ twin complex next door. One was named after the developers husband and one (Rosellen) was named after the wife. In 1986 for the World Expo Vancouver, Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park was converted to a hotel to help accommodate the anticipated increase in tourism during the Expo and it has remained a hotel ever since.
There are three great assets the hotel has to offer. First, having been built during this era the suites are among the most spacious in the city. Ranging from 600 - 1,900 square feet, couples travelling together, families, and individual travelers enjoy the ability to share together time when appropriate and still have separate personal space for some quiet time when preferred. The hotel offers two types of design in all of the suite categories. The first is the original style and decor "Classic" suites that long time guests come back year after year to enjoy as they feel comfortable letting the kids roam around in the suite while “Fido” sits at their feet as they sip a glass of wine with their feet on the coffee table and the recently designed "Personal-ity" Suites that offers the optional upgrade with individual themes in each suite, most with hard wood floors, all with flat screen TV(s), DVD/CD player, iPod docking station and luxury bedding. The “Personal-ity” Suites appeal to guests who want a more contemporary feel during their stay. Guests can choose the style that best fits their personal preferences. Second, is the location. Nestled steps from Stanley Park, the property is located in one of the most sought after residential neighbourhoods in Vancouver. The architecture is predominantly from the 50’s and 60’s. The streets are lined with trees. And, though the neighbourhood is for the most part quiet and peaceful, it is 2 blocks to many restaurants and shops and a 15 minute walk from most major Vancouver attractions. The location allows visitors to Vancouver to experience the city like a local. Third, as alluded to in the review, the staff provides a very casual personal style of service. Staying at Rosellen is more like visiting a friend’s home than renting a cookie cutter hotel room.
We do hope that you will try Rosellen Suites on your next visit to Vancouver and suggest booking a Personal-ity Suite that may be a more enjoyable style of accommodations for you and your family.

My husband, young son and I stayed here at the end of our Canadian holiday. The location is superb - a residential area with Stanley Park at the end of the road and only a few minutes walk from the main shopping area. Every member of staff we met could not have been more helpful, especially when my son was ill on the last day and we needed assistance. Whatever the suites lack in modern amenities, is more than made up for by the lovely staff and the excellent location. We would definitely return.

Our 2 families stayed 4 nights. Had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom executive suite and a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom suite. Both were upgrades from what we had booked. Location is great, short walk to Stanley Park for International fireworks competition. Beds were comfortable and apartments were very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay downtown.

Older but nice suite hotel. All the amenities for a lovely vacation. In the older very quiet part of the westend but close to many restaurants and beaches. Not a lot of parking and small rooms but still a good place to stay.

Suites are large and decent value for a city location. Great location right next to beautiful Stanley Park. Things are bit dated and beds aren't the best but for the price we were very happy.

Thanks very much for your comments and for staying with Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park. During your next visit, we highly recommend considering an upgrade to a "Personal-ity" Suite. These include all the modern technological requirements guests have come to expect in a hotel such as flat screen TV(s), DVD/CD player, iPod docking station and luxury bedding including pillow toppers on the mattresses. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We just had a situation where our apartment was flooded. While looking for accommodations the entire city was sold out. Friends had previously recommended that we try Rosellen Suites as they had stayed there before. Even though they were also sold out they were so helpful to try to accommodate us and eventually got us a suite, made us feel right at home once we arrived, and couldn't have been more compassionate with the situation we were going through. We now know why it was recommended to us and we will most certainly recommend to others.

Room Tip: Just happy to get a suite but even happier to find all the space and all the things we needed in the...

It is always so frustrating when unexpected emergencies happen particularly when it finds you temporarily homeless. Very happy that we were able to help with a home during the time your apartment was being repaired. Thank you for choosing Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park and for taking time to share your kind words.

Love this location in Vancouver..close to everything and walking distance from the best nature and restaurant areas in town. The staff is simply excellent on all counts. It's he rooms keep this hotel from being a 5 star. The rooms are clean, but could use some minor updating. Also, Vancouver, like any major city, has a number of homeless people. That doesn't bother me; but given the proximity to Stanley park, there's a lot of noisy rummaging through the hotel trash in the evening and early morning hours. I'd recommend a room facing the front of the building.

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts on what are considered to be the key benefits for making Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park the preferred accommodations when visiting Vancouver (spacious suites, great location, friendly staff). In response to the comments, one of the great tragedies of any major city is homelessness. They do exist in Vancouver and they are an accepted part of the culture. The city and many local businesses are working to help provide housing and resolve the issue but as anywhere it is a very challenging task. There has never been any negative issue between the guests, local residents and homeless residents in the West End other than the occassional joustling in dumptsters. In truth, the local crows tend to harass guests more than any of the homeless would. In reality, both are harmless. We hope that you will consider returning to Rosellen on your next visit to Vancouver.
