“Good Value”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Came down for 10 days to volunteer for the Olympic Soccer qualifying, so price was the major factor. For the money it was excellent. It was just me, so the smallish room was fine, well kept, large bathroom, new flat screen tv, in room wifi which worked if a bit slow.
The Restaurant/Pub is excellent too (Wings). Granville is a transit corridor and buses stop right outside the hotel, while being 4blocks from Yaletown station on the Canada line.
(from the airport). It is an old building, but has had upgrades, and staff were very helpful.
I was here when it got down to minus 7C, and snowed, but The room was warm and the bed very comfortable. Above all, good location.

Room Tip: I was in 315 which is at the back of the building .No view but very quiet.

We booked a nice room for our anniversary weekend, and would certainly come again. The jaccuzzi was a nice feature... Very helpful and friendly staff, a nice place to stay, close to everything.
Great location withing the downtown, too.
We're already thinking Valentine's Day... ;-)

This was a great place to stay in Vancouver. Our stay was short and we arrived at 5.30am and had booked for the night before. We were made most welcome with our room being checked before we booked in to make sure it was ok. This hotel was walking distance to most attractions including Gastown and Granville Island. A must on Granville Island is the shop that sells stone carvings from Zimbabwe. In the doorway is Harry the Hippo, who you cant help but rub his tummy. The carvings are absolutely magnificent especially when you talk to the proprietor and find out a little about the carvers history.

Room Tip: Facing the street was fine

We happened to book the weekend over the halloween period and we had sooo much fun! Hotel staff was very nice and courteus, room nice and clean, a bit on a smaller side, but we got used to that already, all big cities have that problem. Security was first class, some people tried to party in the hallways, but were sent to their rooms with warning that one more noise , they will be out, which was very nice, we wanted to go to sleep at some point. We went out, the whole Granville street was alive, it was amazing. we will definetely be back!!!

Room Tip: be nice to front desk staff

I stayed here for 2 weeks from August 31st till September 11th. All of the stuffs are very nice and know everything in Vancouver. Many stuffs are speaking English as their second language, so they know how difficult to do it for foreigners.(I'm Japanese.) I can say to them that take it easy to stay here and ask stuffs anything. The room is cleaned up by excellent housekeepers everyday! When I saw them, they were always smiling and made me happy!! The manager Lucia knows Japanese very much, so Japanese should stay here and make funny conversation in Japanese!haha
There are a lot of good restaurants around here, you don't need to be worried about that as well!
Anyway if you go to Vancouver, you must not have any choices except to Howard Johnson Vancouver!!!
