“We loved the Hotel Blu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Beautiful new hotel in a great location, can walk to most anything! Walked to dinner in Yaletown and Gastown -- both just a short walk away. Room was super spacious with floor to ceiling windows (over 20 feet tall) and an outdoor private patio. Loved the Nespresso in the mornings and the mints and lavender pillow spray in the evenings. Pool and hottub were also very nice -- super quiet and relaxing. Not a crazy big hotel pool with tons of people.

Front desk was super helpful with recommendations for dinner spots and for getting around the area. Everyone was super friendly. Will most definitely return! (-:

Highly recommend.

Very well maintained hotel in a mixed hotel/residential building. Nice location close to stadiums and Gastown. Very friendly staff and nice rooms. All or many of the rooms share a private veranda too!

Superb new hotel with spacious rooms. Extras e.g. nespresso machines and Samsung tablets in rooms all appreciated. Swimming pool was lovely though quite small and could do with more facilities in changing rooms e.g. a bench to sit on. Staff extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

We liked our room and the hotel overall.

The pool is really shallow - only 4 1/2 feet in the "deep" end. The hot tub is reeeealllly hot (which is how I like it.)

One tip is that the hotel charges $30 for valet parking, but the street parking (very readily available all around the hotel) is only $4 or so for 8 PM to 9 AM. We were able to park after dinner each night and then add some time in the morning for a fraction of the cost.

Ask for extra coffee pods at the front desk when you check in - three come in the room, but we used two pods each, each morning.

This is a new hotel. The room I stayed in was very nice, modern and clean. All staff from reception to housekeeping were very friendly and professional. I would stay again here again if I was in the Vancouver area. The complimentary shuttle service was on time and good as well. But there was one day it was fully booked and I could not get a ride at the time I needed it.

We booked Hotel Blu as it was in a great location, and advertised as a modern hotel with high-tech amenities. It surpassed expectations on all counts. The hotel is situated just down the road from the Whitecaps Stadium, in a new and thriving part of the city. The hotel itself is incredibly clean and well appointed, with very helpful and cheerful staff.

The gym is great, with lots of machines, weights, and space, unlike many hotels whose gym is usually a single running machine in a normal room. The pool is small but big enough for a few lengths.

The rooms are great with a comfortable bed and all the latest technology. Flat screen TV, a Samsung tablet in the room to use, free wi-fi and more. A clever touch was USB ports built into the wall on each side of the bed, allowing you to charge your mobile phones, tablets, computers, cameras etc directly without needing to use plugs or travel adapters - Great idea!

The hotel felt friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return next time we are in Vancouver. Highly recommend this.
