Park Inn & Suites by Radisson
Ranked #44 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Reviewed 11 February 2011

A perfectly adequate budget hotel, with two exceptions:
1. Some of the front desk staff need a little polish; and
2. The hotel copies and retains your picture ID, a policy that is deemed unnecessary and inappropriate by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Canada.

We stayed at this hotel to be close to the hospital. It is an older hotel but the room was clean and comfortable. Our room faced the street and the traffic was noisy. Overall an OK visit.

Stayed here for the weekend with wife to visit family and friends. Checked in quite late after 11pm but they still have rooms facing the front ($10 extra). Got the room on the fifth floor with two double beds. This hotel had been around for a long time dating back when I was living here more than 30 years ago but the interior had been renovated a couple years ago so at least the hotel did not feel outdated. The room was pretty basic but clean. The beds and sheets were quite comfortable. Got decent water pressure in the shower and the air-con unit worked well. Noise level was quite noticeable even though we were on the fifth floor. Not sure why the hotel did not upgrade all the windows and sliding doors to double pane ones during renovation. Cost saving I guess. One benefit of being old structure is that each room has a small balcony which allows for smoking outside and also good to step out to enjoy the view. The view out looking at the downtown area was impressive. In fact it's better than the views in the 4/5* hotels downtown. Well, it's a tradeoff between good view or traffic noise. Two complimentary water bottles and free wifi were definitely appreciated. But it would be nice to have an in-room safe as well. Another concern is the open parking lot where with a few warning signs about preventive measures against car break-ins. This was a little worrisome for us even though nothing was left in our rental car.
Overall, we had a comfortable stay at this property. Nothing fancy but serve the need to crash at night as we were out most of the time anyway. Vancouver has grown quite a bit since I lived here a long time ago but it still remains such lovely city with friendly people, wonderful food and culture. Tips: check out Thomas Hass for pastries and chocolates, and 49th Parallel for coffees. Really high quality and delicious stuffs. Both are pretty close by the hotel, on W. Broadway in Kitslano neighborhood. Also, Lupo at Yaletown for fine Italian dining experience.

The Park Inn on West Broadway is one " Hell of a place to stay. " I travel to Vancouver every three months to stay and they do have a great place to stay. The rooms are clean, every room has a balcony view and as for sleep, if you get a room in the back it might be okay or a room higher then the 3rd floor will prompt a good sleep. As Vancouver General Emergency is in the back up one block, you may have to get use to the blariing sirens of ambulances all night and all day. It is still a nice place to stay. Everyday at a certain time they put out fresh apples for customers and you get a fresh bottle of water everyday in your room. A newspaper deivered every morning, and the staff are very cordial and take care of your needs if they can.

I am a frequent traveller to Vancouver and just recently discovered the Broadway area and the Park Inn. If you have been to Vancouver before, branch out to this area. It is very close to the city core but has a much more relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are dozens of independant and affordable restaurants in this area, including the famous Banana Leaf. This hotel is small but offers everything that I need at half the price of a downtown hotel. They don't nickle & dime you here. Parking is cheap and Wifi is free, The staff are friendly and helpful. They offered great advice about exploring this neighborhood and about the easy transportation options nearby. Pay the small surcharge for the city view rooms. You wil get the postcard image of Vancouver that you can't see when you stay downown. The rooms are clean and modern with great bedding. Broadway can be a bit noisy but all city hotels will have some noise. The website was good but I had some trouble with it and got an even better price when I called the tollfree number. I have never heard of the Park Inn chain before but will check them out for other travels.

This is a nice hotel with clean rooms and very helpful staff.

Although not in the centre of Vancouver it was very easy to get around the city using their excellent public transport system. Ask reception about the 'Day Pass' tickets.

Good in house restaurant for breakfast.

We booked this hotel through a web discount site, and got a terrific value. This is not a fancy hotel, but rooms were very clean and spacious. Location is great--just south of the downtown, not quite so hectic, whith a 24 hour drug store across the street and wonderful restaurants in the same block. My partner was sick while we were there, and the staff was very helpful. Rooms have a microwave and fridge. They even tuck a few bottles of water in the fridge every day for free. We slept like babies, even with a streetside room, When we go back to Vancouver, we'll stay here again.
Make sure you ask for a room with a view of the city!
