“Delightful hotel in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

Stayed in this hotel for three days prior to a cruise. Lobby is small, but staff is extremely helpful and friendly. A couple of blocks to Canada Place - cruise port. Hotel has a free shuttle to the port. Right on W Pender. We were able to catch a bus that went to Stanley Park. A short walk to get the bus that went directly to Granville Island. Walking distance to Chinatown, Gastown, and Robson St. There is a restaurant in the basement. We had breakfast included (to a maximum $10). Room was small but included everything needed. Our room (#615) had the view of a concrete wall, as the room was on a central light shaft. No matter, however, as we spent little time in the room, and were busy touring Vancouver. Elevator was slow, so we got up and down using the stairs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of a street, rather than a concrete wall.

Dear Guest,
Thank you, very much for your recent stay with us, and I really appreciate you taking the time out your busy schedule to write the review about our delightful hotel in a great location.

Yes I total agree with you that our Lobby is small the reason being the hotel has been here since 1918, and over the years we have renovated the hotel but unfortunately we could not make the lobby bigger.

I am very pleased that you found our staff to be friendly and very helpful, and that makes the guest feel more comfortable staying with us.

Our hotel is in the right location to stay to go sightseeing, shopping or restaurants, and any other places.

Once again thank you, very much for the review, and we hope to serve you again in the near future.

We stayed 2 nights at the Days Inn in downtown Vancouver prior to our cruise. The room was clean and quiet. The view wasn't so great as it looked into a brick wall of another building but we were there for the city. The front desk staff knew alot about the surrounding area and gave good suggestions for meals. The bed was comfortable. The price was right for us and it was a short walk to the cruise pier. We didn't use the shuttle service since the day was bright and sun shining. Good value, good choice.

Room Tip: Ask for "not a wall view."

We booked this hotel because of its proximity - 2+ blocks - to the cruise terminal @Canada Place. However, we had some concern as the Days Inn chain has bought up a number of distressed properties over the years so the quality is uneven. Not so here. Excellent experience. This is a boutique-style hotel - code for "cozy" rooms, but more than adequate for our one night stay. And the staff was outstanding. In spite of managing traffic in a realtively small, and often, busy lobby, they always took the time to answer any question with grace and good humor. Their suggestions on food, excursions - we had an afternoon, evening, and morning - were spot on, as were their directions for "provisioning" - code for wine and spirits to take aboard. They gave us just enough choices to show they weren't biased but not so much as to confuse; plus their directions and instructions were clear and concise. While this was a vacation trip, I would not hesitate to stay there if business took me to downtown Vancouver. One unknown: Parking. We took Amtrak from Seattle (also highly recommended) and then public transportation to the hotel. The hotel is in the middle of street with no obvious parking. I assume valet parking is available but had no reason to inquire.

Dear valued guest:
Thank you for taking the time out your busy schedule to write your comments on the trip Advisor.
I am very pleased that you found the suite accommodating, for your family, and I must apologize for the nosie you encountered in the room.
Our hotel has been here since 1918, and it has always been a hotel, and as such we do not have the space to have health facilites or the swimming pool, nor there was allowance made to have car parking on site
As you are well aware in most cities parking, is hard to find and costly, we had to make arrangements with the parking lot near the hotel for our guest to park guests car for a reasonable price of $15.00 per day with in/out priveleges, whic h is quite good price for downtown city parking.
I hope with these expainations, you will give us another opportunity to stay with us again in the near future.

We stayed for 2 nights in a suite at the Days Inn in downtown Vancouver. A suite was important to us as we had 2 children and did not want to sleep in the same room with them. Overall the hotel met our minimum expectations. The room was clean, tt was truly a suite with a closing door between the rooms, the bathroom was acceptable, it came with a working mini fridge, you got free wifi, etc.

On the negative side, there weren’t really any hidden treasures with the hotel. The price was decently high at over $200 a night, parking was a couple of blocks away and cost ~$15 a night, the room was super dated, you could hear a good amount of sound through the windows, lighting was relatively bad, and bedding was very basic, not swimming pool, no work out facilities.

I would not necessarily seek out the Days Inn Vancouver, but if you need a suite and can't find other accommodations, it will get the job done.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you were satisfied with your stay with us. As a brand, Days Inn is a value based chain and we like to focus on good clean rooms and good service. We are here to serve families and all of their basic needs with a few special added touches like our complimentary bottled water and free downtown shuttle service. While our price may seem high for a typical Days Inn, it is a reflection of our great city centre location, and market demand during the peak tourist season.

We do our best to maintain our hotel and keep all of our guest rooms up to date in order to meet ever changing guest standards and trends. However, it is important to note that we are in a heritage building and that limits the extent of our renovations. In spite of that, the majority of our guests enjoy our boutique style hotel and service and the location cannot be beat.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and we hope that you will consider us again on a future trip to Vancouver.

We stayed here one night prior to our cruise to Alaska. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff friendly, and the price very good considering the location. We did not find our room noisy. Easy walk to the cruise terminal.
