Posted 20-Apr-2017
Pros: Convenience and comfortable room. Close to everything on Granville Island.
Location: The hotel is on Granville Island. Things to do include shopping at the Public Market, galleries, theatre, restaurants, other shops & boating.
This hotel is comfortable and convenient to Granville Island attractions and activities. Staff are friendly and service is very good. My room was well appointed with a nice view of the waterfront. If you are interested in boating or paddling, these activities are a five minute walk away.

Nice hotel, nice view, good location.

Posted 14-Apr-2017
Cons: Housekeeping
Location: Ate at Cats Social House (very good salads), and Off the Tracks Espresso Bar and had a delicious biscuit with melted brie and honey - YUM!!!
I would have loved to stay during the summer so I could take advantage of the great location and take a stroll right near the water. I was in Vancouver for a wedding and the weather was abysmal but the location of the hotel is beautiful. Walking distance to all Granville Island has to offer - shops, restaurants, the water. The front desk fellow, Jack, was very friendly and welcoming. We didn't try the restaurant but I saw they do have a stunning view. Very quiet hotel. The only hiccup was a dirty coffee cup (complete with a dried-up, coffee-stained sugar packet plastered in the bottom) in the drawer, but as problems go that was pretty minimal. They just need to follow a housekeeping checklist, I would imagine. All in all, a nice stay and I would stay here again.

Spectacular Views

Posted 14-Apr-2017
Staying at the Granville Island Hotel is a wonderful experience. The views of Vancouver, the water, and the surrounding area are amazing. The island is away from the stress of the city and gives you plenty of shops and eatery choices to walk and enjoy. Water taxi's are everywhere to take over a short hop to Vancouver, so leave the car parked at the hotel and go enjoy your visit without that hassle. We have stayed at the hotel many times and always enjoy the friendly staff and lovely accommodations. Thumbs up.

Can't Imagine a Better Location

Posted 3-Apr-2017
Pros: Location. Friendly, professional staff. Everything about our stay was easy.
Cons: More pillow options, and beds were very good but not great.
Location: Granville Island is a great place to wander. The brewery and distillery are both interesting visits. The public market offers marvelous variety.
Granville Island Hotel provided scenic lodging with numerous interesting shopping and dining options a short walk away. While not a large hotel, our lodging did not feel cramped and was quiet.

A disappointment

Posted 1-Apr-2017
Pros: Proximity to the Market.
Cons: Service.
The room that we stayed in was very small for three adults and a child. The lighting was poor and the fridge was not cold enough. I asked for a better room but there was no interest on their part to assist us in any way. We will not return to the hotel.

Absolutely no problems. Would reccomend to all.

Posted 29-Mar-2017
Pros: Site. Size. Cleanliness.
Cons: Make sure that if guest has a car, they get a ticket for parking.
Location: Granville island is a major destination. Extraordinary shops, food, ambiance.
I was surprised to find that the hotel is pet friendly. This is a good thing. Staff were exceptionally helpful when I cut myself and bled on the bed cover.
