Club Intrawest Vancouver
Modern architecture at its finest
Unique Quality: I can only compliment the architectural design of this building as I didn't stay here during my visit to Canada, nor have I ever. But for those who enjoy architectural design and monuments, the Wall center is some eye candy in that arena. Its located within walking distance from the fashion and commerce districts of Vancouver possessing a dynamic view of the ethereal supernatural beauty that Vancouver is well known for - from the heights of its uppermost floors one can see all of Vancouver, the Bay, the harbour, Canada Place, Grouse and Cypress mountain. This building is a monument of mirrored glass windowns with a soothing courtyard holding spectacular gardens, cascading water, and Roman-styled hand-laid paving stones mixing modern architecture with classical beauty. From the outside, this looks like a plush and comfortable place to stay. For more information, see www.sheratonvancouver.com. Rating of architectural design: 4 out of 5; Rating of Hotel: Unknown.

A convenient central downtown location
The Sheraton Wall Center is a modern hotel located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The area is safe and vibrant at all hours. If you want to be equal distance to most attractions, stay here.
It's two blocks south of the heart of shopping and restaurants on Robson Street. It's about a 10 minute walk down the road to the water taxis to Granville Island and about a 10 minute walk to the trendy heritage district of Yaletown. Gastown is less than 20 minutes north-west and Chinatown is 10 minutes beyond Gastown. Walk one block south to Davie Street and walk west and you're in the heart of Davie Village in the West End. Keep going down Davie Street for another 15 minutes and you'll end up at English Bay beach where Stanley Park is only a short jaunt down the seawall away.
I stayed here in June of 2006 after a work event. We were on the 8th floor in the North Tower looking south-east, which is considered a "city view". There were floor to ceiling windows, and if you have a view looking west and you're on a high enough floor, you'll be able to see mountains and sea.
This hotel appears to attract vacationers as well as business people, so it never truly feels like it's being dominated by a particular group of travellers. It's more modern and sleek in design as opposed to cozy and romantic.
We had a standard room (one bedroom, one bathroom) with all the amenities (TV, coffee maker, ironing board, etc). The design of the room was neutral earth tones with black and white photography of nature. I didn't stay long enough to really give the hotel a good exploration, but would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who's looking for a central downtown location.
Unique Quality: This hotel is located in two buildings: the North (newer) Tower and the South (older) Tower. The North Tower is actually the tallest building in Vancouver at the moment (soon to be taken over by the Shangri-La). It'll still remain Vancouver's tallest hotel. With its sleek two-tone glass facade, it's one of Vancouver's most recognizable skyscrapers.
For another amenities, there is a swimming pool, a health club, an onsite restaurant, and a gift shop. There are convenience stores and coffee shops along Burrard Street. I've never eaten at their restaurant, Indigo, but hotel restaurants tend to be more expensive and there are plenty of other restaurants to choose from a short walk away.
Public transportation is right outside the door and I know that this hotel is a pick-up stop for Victoria, whale watching, and and airport-bound shuttles.
Directions: Located on one city block on Burrard Street between Nelson and Helmcken.
good for me
We (2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 7) stayed here in April of 2003 it was great. Loved swimming in the pool. They provided us umbrellas because it was rainy. They were big too. It was perfect for us.
Unique Quality: - We loved the pool. We love swimming it was great. The pool was indoors so we were not freezing.
-It was centrally located.
-The people were wonderful.
- The property was interesting.
Fantastic Place to Stay
The Sheraton Wall Centre is a great place to stay when visiting Vancouver. The hotel is buil on its own block and comprises of two seperate buildings. As you would expect from a Sheraton the hotel is of a high standard with quality fttings and very comfortable.
From the piano bar down stairs in the second building to the rooms everything is of a high standard. The rooms are large with ceiling to floor windows that provide a great view of the city. There is cable TV, in room safe, fridge etc. The bathrooms are a good size too.
Unique Quality: Hotel guests can use the residents gym and pool. The residents building is in between the two hotel buildings and is heated. There are also two spas/hot tubs, with one being hot and the other being really hot! As you would expect there is also a sauna.
The hotel is located in a great spot. A short walk from everything Vancouver Island has to offer. You have the backpackers area, downtown, Yale Town etc all nearby.
Right in the city with little things that matter
I love staying at Starwood brands hotel. I have always received amazing customer service and loved the extras I would receive. The Sherton at the Wall Centre is located right around Robson Street and Yaletown. The hotel design is modern and sleek. My room had floor to ceiling windows wher I could look out onto the city. The hotel has a pool, steam room, sauna. jacuzzi. I spent hours relaxing in them and enjoy their comfort. The room service was delicious whether it was breakfast, lunch, dinner or a 4 am drink. The hotel is a bit pricy around $180 a night for a standard room if you pay the standard rate. It was definately worth it I would recommend staying there. The hotel is in a great location and the service is excellent.
Directions: Robson Area
Tallest place around
Unique Quality: Sheraton Wall Centre on top of a terrific Downtown location also features the best views in the city. At the moment Sheraton Wall Centre is the highest building in Vancouver. The hotel is within walking distance of various restaurants, shopping on Robson, clubbing on Granville etc.
Directions: Located on Burrard Street between Robson and Davie street. A few block from the clubbing district on Granville Street.
Sleeper not so sweet
I must say I thought the location was great. The hotel has 2 towers and I was in the South Tower, no big deal.
I was however excited about staying in their new sweet sleepers (the Sheratons version of the Westin heavenly bed), not!! I had about 4 pillows on the bed and that was about it. It does not compare to Westin, even though both are Starwood properties.
The exterior of this hotel is great but I wish I would have known the North Tower would have been a better choice with possibly nicer rooms.
Unique Quality: Their restaurant, Indigo has added a few low carb items for those counting carbs. It was not half bad. The decor is funky and colors are bright and inviting.
Again the location was great to explore the neighborhood in the evening.
Visiting on a conference.
Fantastic hotel, plenty of room, very confortable rooms with lovely views.
Situated in Downtown Vancouver and in easy reach of Robson Street for shopping and eating out. Tour bus passes the hotel and the concierge are very helpful.
I'm here on a conference and the organisation of food and rooms is excellent.
Unique Quality: Great views, location. Free pool, sauna, hot tub, but you pay extra for the gym.
Internet access in all rooms, but a little pricey.
Sleek high rise accomodation
I stayed in a room on the 30th floor facing the sea. I guess you would have to look at the mountains on the other side. Vancouver is a very handsome city. The rooms in this hotel are oddly shaped but they have balconies and very comfy beds and a very good health club. The staff is very helpful and attentive. I got in at 2AM and they got me to the room and in bed quickly. The hotel is central to gay life in the city and within easy walking distance of most major activities. I will stay there again. The next time I give Vancouver a chance to show me the people are as beautiful as the place.
Unique Quality: High rise with great views and balconies. Great staff and concierge.
