    Great Value


    Good Hotel. Room better than expected.
    Our standard room had kitchenette, living room, balcony, and second bedroom. A little dated, but clean.

    Location: good for night life. Is only a few blocks from Robson and Granville streets.

    But..... is next to a hospital, throughout the night there was the noise from emergency vehicles.

    Unique Quality: Great value for price / room size.

    Directions: Downtown near corner of Nelson and Burrard St.

    Is about 10 min walk from the Canada Line station (city center).

    Simple but Nice hotel


    Happy enough with the hotel. Very central in downtown Vancouver, clean rooms and the views from the rooms is impressive. I would certainly stay there again

    Good Location


    The room we stayed in had a kitchen which was great for warming up left overs and refrigerating drinks. There is a Market Place a block away if you need groceries. The room was very clean and the staff was very polite. The parking structure has numerous signs about car theft, so that was a little worrisome. The hotel is 3 blocks from Robson St and very near Yale Town and Granville. Also had a great balcony with stunning views of the city. The balcony was great for cigar smoking.

    Unique Quality: Indoor pool was great for the kids. Depth ranged from 4 to 6 feet. Towels were provided in the pool

    Fantasic place, great price & downtown location


    This hotel is just fantastic. I first stayed here in 2003 on the advice of my travel agent. I then stayed for a second time in March 2005. The rooms are very well appointed. Most rooms have a kitchette or full kitchen. This makes for cheap eating, particularly breakfast.

    The best rooms in the hotel, in terms of size, are the rooms on the corners of the building. You should request 1 of these at the time of booking.

    The hotel is very reasonably priced... What i would call cheap. When booked from Australia we paid about $100AUD/night for the room. great for 2 people.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is right in down town opposite the Sheraton Wall Center. If you are heading up to Whistler, the Whistler bus departs from across the road at the Wall Center.

    Breakfast can be taken downstairs in the hotel restaurant each morning. The food was good and reasonably price.

    Have A Laugh and Stay Downtown


    We got upgraded to their coporate suite, which included free internet acess if you brought your laptop. The room was beautiful, with a veiw of the Sheraton across the street with fountains on the street below. Everything was clean and well taken care of, nothing to complain about. The front desk was very helpful. If your parking, its $10/night. The only inconvinience was that if there was an event that night and you took your car out, you may not find a parking space later and be forced to park in the Thrifty parking spots on the basement floor, and they will most likely just leave you a note in the morning asking you to move your car. Within walking distance to Grandville.

    Unique Quality: The Century has a Yuk Yuk's comedy club downstairs, which was very good. For about $15 you get entertained for a couple hours by a MC and 2 comedians. Drinks are available. We were going to take a dip in the pool but it was too cold for comfort in the middle of November.

    The Century Plaza Hotel


    Unique Quality: Conveniently located for all Downtown's attractions. The outside doesn't really do this hotel justice! There's also a great seafood restaurant called Roy's.

Take upper floor rooms

by TripAdvisor Member limehog

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Specified and confirmed by the hotel that we will get 2 double beds and 1 sofa bed. Upon entering the room we found 2 single beds and 1 sofa bed. Front desk said they could only change our room the next day. So we have to settle for the 2 single bed room. They did put us to a 2 double bed room for the 2nd and 3rd day. Room for the 1st night which is on the 8th floor is somewhat shabby and very noisy due to the traffic on Burrard St. Room for the 2nd and 3rd night is on 24th floor has a better view and not that worn out. However, you will still be annoyed by the noise of traffic
Considering the rate and location, this hotel stills worths a try

Value Value

Was skeptical after reading all the reviews but the price was too good to pass on for the size of the room ($109 for an Executive King). The exterior of the hotel looks uninviting; with a so so lobby and a dated elevator we were amazed at the size of the room (26th floor) and the amenities!! Granite bathroom counters, bowl sink. Comfortable couches, full kitchen, high speed Internet and yes even air-conditioning (Although we never used it). We discovered that these were the newly remodeled rooms, for what we were paying, we had no complains with the room and would be surprised if we could get a better deal for 900sq ft!! We had dinner in Roy’s and while the restaurant looks out of the 70’s the seafood dinner was delicious and for a fraction of what we would normally pay. My fiancé could not get an appointment in the spa as they were booked up the whole weekend; the comedy club admission price was inexpensive ($15) so that was a great evening. The staff in the hotel very friendly and often went out of the way to accommodate us. I think this was a five star experience at three star prices.

Value for money during low-season!

by TripAdvisor Member Anika43

I stayed at this hotel in January 2004 and return there about twice a year.

Although an older hotel, it is within walking distance of famous Robson street and shopping. It takes about a half hour drive from the airport to get there.

I really like the (very) large rooms, which all come with a kitchen. You can ask for appliances & utensils at the front desk, so it's easy to prepare your own breakfast. There is a supermarket nearby and a restaurant on the premises.

It also has a pool and a (fee) parking garage which will fill up quickly during high-season.

Especially during the off-season, when rates are low (around C$ 70.00) it is absolute value for money. The 1 BDR-(corner)suites are priced a bit higher, but are also ok. During high-season (= summer), keep in mind that there is NO airconditioning, if you're unlucky your room gets sun the whole day and the vents don't do much in terms of cooling the place down.

Ask for a room with a view on Robson Street, then you'll also have a nice view on the surrounding mountains. If you do have some spare time, go for a massage at the spa: it is really great after a day of skiing on Grouse Mountain.

If you like the smell of paint...

by A TripAdvisor Member

The first room I received had someone elses luggage still in it. The front desk promply fixed the situation with a bigger room on a higher floor. It was a nice view, but it stank of recently painted walls. The elevators seem to be falling apart and with only three elevators for the massive number of floors available you were always packed in like sardines on your way up to the room. The bed was rock hard and ended up sleeping on the sofabed which had a bar in the middle of it straight through your back. The hotel bar was nice.

Should I stay at the YWCA or Century Plaza Hotel?

by pinthos


I'm a sole female traveller and I'll be in Vancouver in end April.

I'm looking for budget accommodation of around C$75 a night (with private bath). My main criteria are: a location with good public transport links and an area I'll feel safe in.

Currently I've shortlisted the YWCA (C$75)and Century Plaza Hotel (C$79) as my choices. I'll be grateful for any comments on the suitability of these two hotels.

RE: Should I stay at the YWCA or Century Plaza Hotel?

by YVRDave

I would recommend the Century Plaza just because it is a hotel with all the services a hotel has.
Transportation is close to both.
You may get differing opinions from other single female travellers so you can balance it all out.

RE: Should I stay at the YWCA or Century Plaza Hotel?

by yvr

The YWCA is fairly new, and is located downtown in a good area. The Century Plaza is nice, located on very busy Burrard St. yvrDave is correct about the services the Century Plaza will offer vs the Y, but if you are single you might feel more comfortable at the Y and you might meet some other single females who would enjoy a coffee or sharing some traveling stories. The Y is a great place to meet others whether male or female, as a single travler you may feel more comfortable there.


RE: RE: Should I stay at the YWCA or Century Plaza Hotel?

by pinthos

Thank you both for your replies.

I have since discovered that Century Plaza is quite near a hospital and there are complaints that the sirens at night makes it noisy sometimes.

Since the YWCA has shared kitchen facilities and laundry, I guess I'll be going with the YWCA.
