“Very good and relatively new hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2010

As many people have already reported, this is a very nice hotel, but ... how about offering complementary WiFi? A lot of coffee/sandwich shops around do provide that for free. There is a Starbucks at the corner. But I found Wave Coffee (at the end of the short block, down hill, right from Starbucks) to be easier to use requiring no password. Coffee and cakes are nice too.

I took the Canada Line from the airport to the hotel. I was debating to get off at Vancouver City Center then walk or transfer (at the end of the line) to the Sky line and get off at Burrad for a shorter walk. In turn of time, it turned out to be about the same.

BTW: from airport to downtown, it costs $8.75 one way. So, if you have 3 people and it is raining, you may consider taxi - unless it is rush hour then you may get stuck in traffic. From down town to airport is only $3.75. The asymmetric $5 surcharge from the airport is pretty strange.

I liked this hotel quite a bit. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The room, with its floor-to-ceiling window wall was nice. Cool bathroom with two sliding doors that closed the room but when left open really opened up the space. Distinct toilet area with door and a big deep tub - both a plus. The rate spot-on with other hotels in the area. I also liked the small window that could be opened to get some fresh air.

The location was good for me. Close to Robson St. and striking distance to Gastown and Coal Harbor. A bit of a walk to Yaletown but totally doable. Anything further south would be a long trek by foot or a cab ride. Will definitely want to check out that area next time.

Had food from Voya in the restaurant once. While the arugula salad was just ok (croutons?), the buffalo rib eye was perfect.

WOW! What a find! The Loden, located on Melville between Bute and Smythe. We were given a 1-bedroom suite. Totally outfitted with a WiiFit (didn't use...and after you hear about the food, you'll know why)...dvd player, large (46"?) TV's in living room and bedroom. Beautiful bathroom with separate toilet, shower and tub.
The Voda Restaurant was amazing. Soup and Sandwich lunch was amazing... crab sandwich and butter squash soup. Dinner was beyond all expectations. The quality and presentation was outstanding. The wines that were suggested matched the food perfectly. Can't rate it high enough.
The Gym has state of the art equipment (the spin bikes look like they are going 40 MPH just standing still) and it it open 24 hours a day. We booked massages which were given in a room outfitted with 2 massage tables and an infra-red sauna.
The hotel staff were wonderful. Everyone greeted you. Asked if you were staying in the hotel...seemed truly interested in our answers. Not sure what the CAA/AAA status is....but easilly should qualify for a 4-diamond award.

I took my wife and kids (2 yrs and 5 yrs) for a couple of days getaway from home. I chose the KLoden based on the reviews in the Trip Advisor and I was more than happy with the decision.

From the booking, to the valet service, to check in and hotel quality I give the hotel and it's staff the highest ratings. The staff was willing (and located) to help us find my son's shoes that he'd kicked off in the car and that we were looking for in the rain. They found the missing shoe and brought it up to the room less than 10 minutes after we'd returned after they parked our vehicle in their secure facility.

The front desk offered to take us anywhere we wanted to go - aquarium - in their vehicle so we could enjoy and not worry about the parking or driving in an unfamiliar city.

very person working at the Loden was friendly, helpful, nice and pleasent to be around. We felt we had a great stay.

The room was beautiful, immaculate and silent. I would recommend going as a couple, which was not an option for us, but it would be a scenic and romantic place to stay.

We stayed here with our 2 teenage sons for 1 night after returning from Whistler/Blackcomb. The hotel is beautiful - clean & very modern, & well located. The rooms are a very nice size with gorgeous bathrooms & amenities. Fabulous bed - big fluffy comforter, high quality sheets. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful with suggesting dinner reservations,getting us a a taxi for the airport,printing business documents, etc. I really loved this hotel & would definitely return. I would love to have stayed here longer!

Stayed here for a night after returning from New Year's in Whistler. From start to finish it was a great experience. Drove in early from Whistler because of the weather, arrived downtown at 12 and though what the hell we'll try and check in early. Pulled up to the front, & I ran in just to check, 10 minutes later we were all checked in and settled in a stunning corner suite (701). Bathroom was gorgeous with a separate bath/shower/toilet, dimmers on the lights. Toiletries were by Molton Brown (BIG thumbs up!) , plenty of towels, and 2 lush bathrobes. There was lots of closet space/drawers, a sitting area, desk and a very comfy bed. In the closet there was a huge umbrella (perfect for the rainy weather), an environmentally friendly shopping bag, and a yoga mat (to go along with the yoga channel on the tv). Each suite has it's own door bell which you can silence by pressing a button on the wall so you won't be disturbed. The hotel also has a London car service which will drop you off anywhere downtown. Location wise it was also good. Quiet area but walking distance to both the waterfront and Robson. Got a pretty decent deal of their website, 150 for the night. Bill with valet and tax came to 225. We really did not want to leave, we wished we could stay a few more days. Next time we're in Van we'll definitely return!

Beautifully designed hotel. Absolutely no flaws. And above all: exquisitely friendly and helpful staff. Good location in close proximity of shops, restaurants and famous Gastown district. Excellent restaurant & bar ("Voia") in the hotel.
Wouldn't choose another one in downtown Vancouver.
