To small

Posted 16-Aug-2014
Our room was very small ! Balcony so small that only one person might be able to climb over furniture . Whose idea was it to place the toilet directly under the sink? Last but not least no place for luggage or parking. I will not be staying there again!

it was ok

Posted 13-Aug-2014
Pros: the boat dock, the calm chowder soup
Cons: the parking, the price. the beds
Location: shopping, but very dirty, shops where only for the rich
the beds where to high and hard, the resturant was very expensive, the room was not much to write home about for the price you pay to stay. the boat dock was beautiful. the room that the wedding was in was so hot you could not stand it. some of the food was cold. overall would not stay again

Fantastic Location

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: See above
Cons: We really couldn't find anything to complain about except that we would prefer a fridge rather than a mini bar in the room.
Location: The location is fantastic - so much to do: the market, theaters, galleries, shopping and restaurants.
We have been celebrating our wedding anniversary at the wonderful Dockside Restaurant at the Granville Hotel for the past couple of years. We decided to enhance the experience by staying overnight at the hotel. It did not disappoint. The staff at check in were extremely courteous and helpful. The room was impeccable and very quiet.

Location, location, location!

Posted 4-Aug-2014
Pros: The rooms are updated and clean, and the patio over-looking the harbour was lovely. At night it was so quiet, you could leave your patio door open.
Cons: The rooms are on the small side, and the exercise room could use some free weights - small complaints at best!
Location: Love food? Eat at the market or one of the many fine restaurants nearby. Love to walk or ride bikes? Hit the sea wall for both. The list goes on.
We stayed at the Grandville Island Hotel for 4 nights, and we are ready to book next year. Once we arrived, we parked our vehicle in a reserved spot and did not move it for the length of our stay. The most glorious aspect of this hotel is its proximity to...everything!

great view of downtown Vancouver

Posted 3-Aug-2014
Pros: Dockside restaurant was great, they just kept trying to put me at bad table even if I asked for another, waterfall shower was wonderful, very clean,
Cons: maybe seating people in good locations
Location: location was good, was only there for one night and that is more than enough to see Granville Island, but walking distance to Vancouver
bed was okay, shower and bathroom were great, very narrow room, wonderful staff, restaurant was great, one hostess refused to move me to another table because she said they were booked but no one ever sat there the entire time I was there, the breakfast table they tried to put us at was not great and asked to move, which they did, and it was never busy enough to figure out why they tried to seat us at non desirable table, maybe because I was with younger son? no idea. Staff was great, just not the people seating me.

Excellent hotel in the heart of Granville Island

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: I can't say. Restaurant looked nice, but we were out and about all of the time.
Location: There are some great restaurants so close on Granville. We also went to the theater for a play one night. It was within blocks of the hotel.
We have stayed at this hotel twice. It seemed to have been upgraded a lot since our last visit a few years ago. The front desk was always helpful, the room was nice with a view, and the location was perfect for us. We didn't eat at the hotel as so much to see and do in Granville and the walk so easy to our favorite places or to the Market for specialty morning coffee and goodies. Our departure from the airport to the hotel was so quick and easy. We just got a cab at the airport. We were in our room by ten-thirty in the morning as room was ready. Then we were out the door to explore. Hotel got us a cab to go to the cruise port, and all was on schedule. We had a wonderful three day stay!

Awesome location

Posted 16-Jul-2014
Hotel very nice, staff friendly, room nice except had a very small window with almost no view. Couldn't turn the AC below 20 Celsius. Lounge and patio had excellent food and view. No parking available on the first night.

A fun hotel that has gone upscale - poor results.

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: Location - at centre of very lively area.
Cons: Do more to encourage people to relax and enjoy there.
Location: Famous loaction - Granville Island - packed with people - impressive markets.
The first nighht there we went to go into the lounge but was told it closed at 10:00 on week-nights. Only had one meal there - a breakfast, as was very expensive so ate elsewhere (4 days). Staff was friendly but atmosphere was vert staid.
