Howard Johnson Hotel Vancouver Downtown
Ranked #81 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Two nights here and little to fault. I read about the nightclub on T.I. So asked for a room on an upper floor and didn't hear a thing,
Room was spacious and modern though we could have used a fridge.
Staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is convenient to all places of interest.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor preferably at the back. No view but it will be quieter.

Stayed here 3 nights in July. Nice hotel in central location. You have access to all of downton. You can walk everywhere or take the Hop on Hop off bus 1min from the hotel. We had a clean room with free Wifi. The staff was a great help with booking local attractions and providing us with tips for local dining. Overall pleasant experience.

I've stayed at the HoJo twice lately, and it was perfect for what we needed. Very inexpensive considering the location, especially if you book through a site like Trivago. No need to drive or use taxis if you stay here; less than a 10 minute walk to Pacific Centre and the incredible shopping on Robson, and surrounded by a variety of restuarants, pubs, and clubs. The rooms are small and outdated, but very tidy and if you're going for something specific (shopping, clubbing, an event, etc) vs. the "hotel experience", then it's a great place to get ready and then to sleep. MUCH preferred to the Sandman in terms of location, quality, and cleanliness. The staff is very friendly, and they offer free wi-fi. If you're looking for the ice machine, it's on the 1st floor :). Parking is available to reserve; but this hotel is very near the sky train station so you could skip that nuisance altogether if you choose.

Others mention noise from the restuarant downstairs; I was on the second floor on both stays and didn't hear anything. Also, security is very present within the hotel, so be sure to keep it down yourself! If you get a little too loud though they'll knock and offer a polite reminder to please keep it down.

We stayed on two occasions recently before and after a cruise. This hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Skytrain for access to the airport. It is also a short taxi ride from Canada Place cruise terminal. The rooms are clean and functional. Some rooms are spacious, but some are a bit on the small side.
The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, a great source of information for tourists. There is a self service laundry in the hotel. The Wi-Fi worked very well in our rooms.
The hotel is located close to restaurants and bars, and breakfast was easy to obtain close by. There is a night club nearby, but we did not hear any noise from our rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the rear to avoid any noise issues.

This is an okay place to stay. We also stayed here for one night after a concert at BC Place Stadium. It was an easy walk to the stadium from here, but the immediate neighborhood was a bit questionable. But a block or two away, it was a nice downtown area. We got back to our room about midnight after the concert and the base from the club below was vibrating our floor. When I found out that the club was open until 3 am, I took a sleeping pill. Avoid all rooms that stare with one. I also found it odd that there were no washclothes in the room. I used a hand towel. The rooms and elevator are on the smallish side for North America. But this is an older building. I enjoy Vancouver a lot, but not so sure this would be my first choice of hotels.

Room Tip: Avoid all rooms on the first floor.
