    « Amazing staff and view »

    Kjempehyggelig personale som var blide og behjelpelige med både matanbefalinger og attraksjonsanbefalinger. Flott utsikt utover byen og enkelt å navigere seg fram til hotellet med bil. God standard på rom, behagelig seng og stort bad. Hvert rom har hvert sitt trådløse nettverk, så det er raskt og føles sikrere enn mange andre hoteller. Wonderful staff who were so friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and recommendations on stuff to do. Great view of the city and the hotel was very easy to find as we drove into Vancouver. The room was comfortable and very clean, with a huge bathroom. Each room has its own private wifi which is perfect. Surrounding area wasn't as nice, but the rest of Vancouver was lovely.

    « Escape to Vancouver »

    This property has an excellent location to get around the centre of Vancouver. It is starting to show its age however the service and staff are fantastic. Hotel management should work with the local businesses to address the problem of the large number of homeless folks in the surrounding area. As a tourist this does give a very bad impression of the city.

    « Very good and spacious rooms »

    This hotel is located right downtown Vancouver and in a bit of a sketchy area. The rooms are large and comfortable and we had our dog with us which was very convenient and the staff loved to visit with her. There is a restaurant downstairs that you can get discount coupons for at the front desk, various type of shopping within walking distance and a dog park a block away.

    Excellent hotel with great staff! Entering this hotel your greeting at the front desk and you feel welcomed. The hotel is clean and on the front desk is an assortment of fresh cookies and a table near with a container of water with fresh fruit and ice in it. The concierge was helpful and we received coupons for the aquarium and the restaurant at Stanley park. The Hop on Hop off stops in front of the hotel which makes it so easy. The hotel is located not far from the cruise port, and there are bars, restaurants, and of stores. When we come to Vancouver again we will stay here again.

    « Great value, excellent service and super location! »

    Although the room was a bit dated, it was spacious and well appointed. I appreciated a separate living area and the private bedroom was very comfortable. Considering I was facing a busy street, it was more quiet than I expected. I loved the front desk service and the gym was small but had the machines and weights I needed...a bonus! Don't let the neighbourhood dissuade you as it's only a 10 minute walk to the heart of the city! I'll definitely be staying again. Just to note, if you drive to the hotel, you will notice that there is no drive through area to park in when you check in...just two small spots in front of the building. That can be a bit confusing!

    The room was very clean, well kept furnishings. Small fridge, desk and couch and chair in main living area and two comfy beds in the bedroom. Two tvs and a nice view. THE LOW PRICE was shocking since we were going to the Juno Awards ! Absolutely marvelous restaurant attached to the hotel lobby so no need to go out that night! Super friendly and helpful staff. Secure parking area.

    « Lovely staff, nice clean room with a comfy bed, exceeded expectations! »

    I received a discount rate and always worry that it will affect the room assignment. I had requested a quiet room on an upper floor. They put me on the top floor in a fantastic room with a great view. The bed was plush and comfy, there was even a nice cheese and fruit tray. I could not find one thing wrong with this room, every thing was immaculately cleaned. The black out curtains were marvelous and room so quiet. I slept better in this room than I do at home. The front desk staff were friendly and professional, as was the man that checked my bag for me for the day. WI FI was great, others at hotel were friendly and polite.

    My family arrived early, a few hours ahead of check in. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with doing a pre check in and storing of our bags so we could go explore the city. The hotel was very clean and taken care of. The concierge was very nice and helpful. My family and I stayed at this hotel so we could attend New York Rangers vs Vancouver Canucks game. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Rogers Arena. A lot easier to walk than to find parking by the arena. Will definitely stay here again if I visit Vancouver again.

    « Quick getaway »

    Decided to surprise my wife with a little getaway for the night as we were going to attend a concert at the Commodore. This was part of a belated birthday gift for my wife as well. Call the hotel to check on the reservation and they were able to give us a little upgrade from a double bed suite to a king bed suite. The view of Granville were amazing. The room was updated and clean. Overall this hotel exceeded expectations as we just plan an overnight away from the kids. This is a 70's hotel that has been very well updated. The Location is great. We will definitely stay here again. Pro Tip ask for a room ending in 05. This room had perfect view of both north and south of Granville strip.

    The Best Western Plus Chateau Granville is a great place to stay in Vancouver. Centrally located with clean, comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price. A good choice for watching hockey games, attending rock and roll concerts or just getting away for the weekend.

    this is a well appointed hotel, Big room, double beds, large living area, sofa, chair and nice balcony good closet space, nice bathroom, comfy beds the hotel is centrally located, many restaurants and convenience stores near by the major tourist attractions are easy to get to as well! The room service is great, I only ordered breakfast, it was more than I could eat, but it was tastey there is a parking garage, there is a fee for parking overnight

    « Mixed feelings »

    The hotel experience was really pretty good. Staff were mostly helpful. Room service was pretty good. The room was VERY comfortable and spacious. Beds were very comfortable. There were light-blocking shades for the windows which was quite nice. You have a thermostat in your room so you can control the temp. Nice small fridge and microwave. Great water pressure in the shower/bath. Nice city views from the balcony. Location was quite good. WiFi was also really good. Because the hotel is near some bars, a strip club, and a sex shop, you end up having a lot of street noise at night. It didn't really interfere with sleep, but it was a bit annoying at times. The street is also one of the more "dodgy" ones in the city. Walking up and down Granville was a mix of dodging the people yelling at themselves or imaginary beings, having a mixed aroma of urine and marijuana, and sometimes just feeling not very safe at night. We found that taking the other parallel streets 1 block away in either direction was a much better experience. The hotel can't really do anything about that, but I think it's important to know, especially if you're traveling solo or as a family. We left a day early because of impending weather that would affect our travels; however, I was still charged the full price for parking. I understand not being refunded for the hotel (and I didn't ask; not their fault we left early), but I don't think it was right to charge me the full rate for parking. So overall the hotel was a great experience, but we probably wouldn't stay here again just because the neighborhood experience is so poor.

    Arriving quite late, the lady at the front desk, Ashley, was very professional and kind. Good late night policy, but seems to cause trouble for the staff! Ashley was very assertive, I am impressed how she spoke and handled the situation with riotous guests trespassing in the lobby. Good job Ashley! Will be back for sure.

    « Clean and convenient »

    This hotel is well located in downtown Vancouver. A short walk to the shopping district on Robson St or to the up-and-coming restaurants in Yaletown. In the off season, prices are very reasonable (about $100) given how expensive most hotels in downtown Vancouver are. The lobby of the hotel is small and efficient. The elevators are slow. The rooms are good sized. My room had a single queen bed with plenty of room around it, plus a desk, small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom had a deep tub with a shower and lots of counter space. The bed was firm and flat, with plenty of extra pillows. The staff are very friendly and helpful, offering to store luggage and letting us park a few extra hours after checkout.

    « At most 3 stars »

    Compared to other 4-star hotels ever stayed, don't think this specific hotel is, very old/slow elevator, some/many buttons not light on after pressed, higher(27%) parking tax rate to add parking fee(not sure if Vancouver City really has this so high parking tax rate policy). The good thing is this hotel location is in downtown and convenient for downtown area walking.

    I've stayed here many times with my family when traveling to or from Whistler and the Vancouver Airport. I've never been disappointed, and the location is fantastic. Just be careful walking around the city if you have small children, there are a lot of Lingerie Stores, and lots and lots of young people smoking pot. Knowing that, I always feel safe in Vancouver.

    « Very mediocre »

    Average hotel. Rooms a bit dingy and dated, very much a 80s style hotel. Website definitely glams this place up. Quite expensive but then I noticed everywhere in Vancouver was. Location good, nice little bar and restaurant next door. Cookies at reception!

    « Fine Choice for a Single Night Stay »

    We just needed a night layover between an arrival flight and our bus trip the next day to Whistler. This place served the purpose nicely. The room with the double queen suite suited us well, as our son could have his own space. Room 406, at the end of the hall, was very quiet, with a nice view of the neighboring high rise apartments. We opted for the included breakfast. The value for the All Canada breakfast can be applied to anything on the menu. Coffee was plentiful and service was good in the cafe. The front desk and bell desk staff were also very helpful. The only thing to note is that the hotel is a few streets off the mainstream shopping area. There are lots of restaurants and clubs nearby (one of which advertised ?Girls, Girls, Girls?) though we were not bothered by any noise or anything. We were able to pick up a quick dinner the evening we arrived within a few blocks walk.

    « 2 night stay »

    Friendly and helpful staff. Some parking available underground, but awkward to park outside to book in befoe accessing the car park. Good location on a main street, within walking distance of the main shops and other attractions. Slightly odd atmosphere outside in the evening, possibly because of the sex shop opposite, but safe enough to walk about. Good restaurant (and breakfast) attached to the hotel, with good ranges of food and drinks at reasonable prices. The staff here were very helpful and friendly too. Only real downside was the 2 lifts, quite small, were awkward to get to higherfloors when busy, but the views made that worthwhile.

    « Super Service »

    I recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Chateau Granville in a suite for a couple of nights with my twin boys, my nephew and their best friend, having just completed a one week stay in Whistler. From the moment we arrived the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were upgraded to a room w/a view on the 11th floor. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy. In addition, not only were we granted a late check-out, but since our flight was not departing until late at night, they held our luggage so that we could continue enjoying our sight-seeing without interruption. What more could you ask for!!

    « Sewage leaks, No water...and Management Broken Promises from Director of Operations Down. »

    I stayed at this hotel for a week in October for business purposes. The stay was uneventful, and I booked in a stay for a week in November again for business purposes. The room smelled so much like weed, I woke up at 5 am thinking someone was smoking it in my bedroom. Tuesday night, I went to have a shower only to find no water in the bathtub. I called the front desk, and was told that they were having plumbing work done and everyone had been advised. I said no one told me or I would have stayed at another hotel. They said they told people at check in and a card was posted in everyone's room. I said that I was not told at check in. No card was posted in my room or I the elevator or anywhere else. I said I had to work the next day and what was I to do with no access to water? She said it's only the hot and it will be back on at 5:30am. I said it's both hot and cold and if I had known I could have planned around this. She offered to have the manager contact me the next day and I said that I did want to talk to him. Wednesday: No contact at all from the manager. They had my cell number and my room number and I heard nothing from anyone. Wednesday night, the room smelled so badly of this weird awful weed smell and almost a sewage smell. I opened all the windows, but it didn't really help. Thursday, the sewage smell was vomit inducing. It was awful. I had gotten back to the room late from work and then shopping... I was due to check out on Friday and noticed my emailed receipt overcharged me $5/day for the duration of my stay. I called the hotel. The front staff are always rude. The girl told me that this was the rate for 2 people in the room. I said it was just me except for the last night and I had told them about this. Further to this, I said that I didn't accept it was a 2 person rate based on what was agreed with my employer. I told her all the issues with the stink in the room, the lack of water, the manager not returning my call, and the sewage leak. she said she would pass this along to the manager. The manager came to my room shortly and said he could smell the stink but that it was from wet overlay. The maintenance person followed him in...and said immediately that there was a sewage leak. The manager tried to argue, and the maintenance person said no...that's sewage. Clearly. Later that afternoon, I got a phone call from the Director of Operations with this site. I believe her name is Alice. She apologized profusely. She disagreed with the extra $5 charge per night and said that this would be reversed. She also said that to try and make amends they would issue a mastercard. She had offered a best western credit, but I declined saying that I didn't think I would stay at best western for a long time. So, she emails me an "amended" receipt which shows a $95 (ish) reduction which I presume was for the water situation and a reduction of $20 for the overcharge on the room...then at the bottom of the receipt, it added all of this back. I called back and asked to speak with the director of operations again. The girl at the front desk got involved and started saying that I deserved to pay the $5/night as they gave me a suite not a regular room. I disagreed and didn't know why I was still fighting over this when I was told it was incorrect and would be corrected. She finally put me through to the Director of Operations who didn't answer her phone. I left a message for her explaining that the over charge had been deducted and then charged back at the end of the invoice. I requested she return my call. The only contact I had was for another invoice to be sent. This showing again a deduction for the overcharge...and then the charge being added back yet again at the end of the receipt. There was nothing that was ever sent by mail despite the promise made by the Director of Operations. I checked out on the 24th of November...it's been over a month and nothing was received. I was very disappointed to see the lack of action and the broken promises that happen at this site from the top down. It isn't worth the cheaper rate...unless you're ok with raw sewage.

    A hospitalized family member brought us to Vancouver with very short notice. We are Diamond Members with Best Western so we sought them out first. This hotel had no more rooms available for points rewards but Bruce the manager went the extra mile to help us out. On top of it I drive a full size truck and couldn't fit in the underground so he made arrangements for us to park in the loading dock. All the staff were friendly and very accommodating! The room was clean and comfy. Throughout our stay the staff was awesome. Every manager every staff was a pleasure to deal with. Definitely had a great stay and made our situation easier. Thank you everyone at Chateau Granville!!

    « Mouse in room. »

    After calling the front desk and having them come to the room twice, we were not offered a new room. Upon checkout, when asking for a discount, was informed that because we 'chose' to stay, nothing could be done. The person at the front desk compared the live mouse in the room to a broken tv, saying that they didn't see the problem so couldn't fix it. Very strange experience. Wish I had seen the mouse earlier so that I could have gone to a different hotel before it was the middle of the night!

    One night in Vancouver wasn't enough, but this hotel surely made the most of the time. The staff was fantastic, getting me set up with my room promptly, and helping me navigate the city.

    This was our first stay and we were pleased with the room (size, cleanliness, etc), the location, the service, and overall value for money. We had no negative experiences or complaints. I would just add the obvious proviso ... it's not a 5 star property so don't book in expecting that level of design/decor/amenities etc.

    « 1st trip with hubby in years, with out the kids!! »

    We had stayed here before and it was pretty good. Not this time though. The only reason for the 2 stars was the location and the room was OK.. The problems started around midnight, there was a woman screaming at the top of her lungs, pounding on doors and walls, basically totally freaking out. This went on from about midnight to 3:30 am. I called down to the front desk, all they said was the police are dealing with the situation. I said something at check out time that it wasn't a very good night. They barely said sorry about that. Offered us nothing. Just sent us on our way. For the price you pay at this hotel, they could have been a bit more caring about the problem. Maybe offered a bit of a discount or breakfast at no charge. There are so many other hotels in the area, I personally will try a different one next time..

    « Nice Hotel, Lots Nearby »

    We stayed at this hotel November 15-17, 2017. The hotel is very clean, and the suite we stayed in had a separate living area with a balcony and a bedroom. The living area is a moderate size, but very cozy with a couch and armchair and large TV. There is a nice work desk facing the large windows. We had a great view! The staff are very accommodating and friendly, and there is a very nice restaurant attached to the hotel. There are lots of nice restaurants, pubs, and bars that are walkable (and several sketchy dive bars in the mix). The only thing stopping me from giving 5 stars is that the area is a bit ?challenging? at night (this of course is not the hotel's fault). We never felt unsafe (as one does in some areas of many American cities), but there are a lot of ?energetic? drunk people and a LOT of down-on-their-luck individuals who will approach you asking for help. Again, there's no threat of danger, but it might be out of some individuals' comfort zones. If you're a seasoned city traveller, however, you will barely notice. The hotel is very safe and secure. They require the names of all guests upon check-in, and they check identification upon entry in the later evening. Some may find this inconvenient, however we appreciated it. Vancouver has a relatively compact downtown area, so there is a lot to see and do nearby, both walkable or a short transit or cab ride. We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we visit Vancouver. The hotel offers very nice, clean, and comfortable accommodations at very reasonable rates!

    « Bleach fumes »

    I recently stayed here for 1 night while in town for business. Choose it mainly based on location and price. Hotel would have been fine if it wasn't for the rough sheets that absolutely reeked of bleach. I actually found it hard to fall asleep because the smell was so strong. The bathroom also smelt like they dowsed the entire room with the same bleach as the sheets. While I appreciate the sanitary aspect I think you need a new system.

    « Great place to hold meetings for 100 or less »

    I stayed at the Chateau Granville in mid-September of 2017 for a conference. We had about 100 people. We were there Thursday to Sunday. Stayed on fourth floor. My room had a large patio right off of the room which was shared with the others on the floor. We were at the back of the hotel. An elevator was out of service during our stay but unless I was visiting someone above the sixth floor I took the stairs. The staircase seemed to be mislabeled from above saying you can't get to the lobby but you can. It isn't clearly marked in the lobby where the stairs are to get up. Reservation staff in August were very helpful and registration was simple. Security at night after 2am was tight and that is a good thing. I had two days of meetings on the second level, used the room off of the restaurant for hospitality twice and had two breakfasts, two lunch and one dinner on site. Afternoon cookies at The Conference were good too. Located about 8 minute walk (uphill) from subway, cabs were easily called via the front desk. Not too far to walk downtown or to creek area.

    Our original booking made before we arrived in Canada was for two nights when I realised it should have been for three nights. Booked the third night but only room available was a suite which we took. On arrival at the hotel I explained the situation to reception who juggled rooms so that we ended with an upgrade and not having to change rooms. Tourist advice from reception staff was always helpful and forthcoming. We enjoyed our stay.

    We stayed for a quick weekend trip and it was an excellent choice! Very clean, very comfortable, very roomy, and friendly and helpful staff. The location was fantastic - close to the Vogue theatre where we had tickets to a show (1.5 blocks away) and lots of shopping nearby. It was quiet so we were able to have a good sleep. I would stay here again! (but since downtown Vancouver is quite pricey, I would have to get a good deal).

    This hotel does not recognize loyalty members (no welcome gift or upgrade or verbal "thank you") but the rooms are clean and adequate. The neighbourhood is a little "sketchy" especially at night - we had to walk through a rough area on Granville to come back from the theatre as the street closes down on Saturday nights (for the bar crowd) - taking a bus wasn't an option. However, other than Saturday nights, taking a bus is very handy with the stop being less than a block away.

    If you have a concert to go to or just want to be close to granville sites, then this is a decent hotel. Our room was very spacious. Two double beds, a separate lounging space with a sofa. A balcony overlooking Granville street and two TVs. Great view! And considering we were on Granville it was relatively quiet too. It was very clean, bathroom was well stocked, coffee was included. The two problems I had were that our fridge did not work, at all, and normally I would ask for assistance but we went to a concert and were hoping to enjoy some beverages when we got in but we didn't know it was broken. So when we came back we had warm beer waiting for us. Also, the concierge upon check in was very unfriendly. I am used to better service at Vancouver hotels. He never smiled, seemed annoyed when I asked about the parking options and wasn't helpful at all. This hotel is not a delightful getaway. It is a clean and convenient place to stay when you need a bed close to the action. Do not expect any bells or whistles....or at least don't expect them to work.

    Good experience. Check in staff needs to ask question when the reservation is different from what showed up.

    The visit to Vancouver BC was great and the ability to walk around down town was really good.

    My husband and i stayed 2 nights before a cruise. I loved the suite with a separate bedroom and living room. We could stretch out. The Kuerig coffemaker was very nice. It is on Granville street, one of the main streets to downtown. We bought a 1 day bus pass at the 7/11 and took the bus directly to shopping and downtown restaurants. The peaceful restaurant with hand pulled noodle was especially good. There are lots of restaurants very close to the hotel.. the THAI restaurant catty corner from the hotel was delightful. The bus takes 5-8 minutes and they run every 5 minutes or so. I would stay here again. We took a taxi to the pier for our cruise which was very easy and cost 10 dollars Canadian.

    Always reliable, close to Robson Street, yet a bit off beaten path, allowing you close proximity to hospital and event centres without being in downtown thourgh fair. Proximity to Yale Town Grannville Island and other neighborhood communities easily walked to allowing see areas that maybe missed otherwise.

    « Accessible rooms need updating! »

    I hoped the link in my follow-up email would reply to the manger directly; however, it lead me to Trip Advisor so I guess I will share my thoughts here. My disabled mom and I have stayed at this hotel 1-2 times per year since I moved from Vancouver about 8 years ago. It is in a central location, comfortable beds and linens and offers room service and balconies - all great. The neighbourhood has gone downhill over the years, but at no fault of the hotel. The hotel has made some upgrades to the accessible rooms over the years to include removing sliding doors to the balconies and maybe a few more. However, this time, as my mom's health declines and she is less independent, I have noticed more and more issues that need updating. I should also say that the front desk and management team were happy to hear my suggestions and told me they were improving things further in the future, such as a wheel in shower. I think if the following items were addressed it would be a HUGE help: - lower the beds in the room, or at least 1 of 2 beds. I had to manually dismantle the bed for my mom and move the super heavy mattress and frame away so that she could transfer from her wheelchair. (I am strong and they were HEAVY). When I told the front desk, they said they would have been happy to have helped; however, it was time sensitive so I took it on myself. The bed was waaaay too high, even with a transfer board it would have been impossible. - Lower the sink, iron, towel racks, shower nozzle - anything above arms length if you are in a chair - they are way too high and impossible if you don't have an escort - reverse the cabinet and fridge doors so that someone in a chair can get to them at the right angle - have a door stop of some sort or automatic opener so the balcony door can be propped open so the person in the chair can exit onto the balcony themselves - remove the carpet, and replace with laminate flooring would also be super helpful as the carpet makes the chair hard to track across the floor - remove the bulky cabinets from the bedrooms that hold the TV... they don't allow for much room to turn around in a chair. Thanks for reading my feedback! Cheers

    I spent four nights at the Best Western Chateau Granville during a solo vacation in Vancouver to sightsee and explore the city. The checkin staff were incredibly helpful, as were any other staff I interacted with during my stay. The location was great within a short walk of Yaletown where there were several great restaurants; the ferry to Granville island and Canada Place (about 20-30 minutes). I enjoy walking so it was perfect for me. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. I'd definitely stay here again should I find myself in Vancouver in the future!

    When we made reservation we are so pleased with the reservation staff as they reply us promptly, best location we look forward to our stay here. Unfortunately when we check in, Jessie attended to us. She was the most unfriendly check in staff we met during our 10days trips. Throughout the whole check in no smile at all, she really ruined our vacation as we are so happy after our Candaian Rockies trip. We asked her regards our breakfast, without checking she just told us no breakfast with our booking. We have to show her our voucher again that breakfast was included. Not apologetic she claimed with Agoda you only get continental breakfast, no need to be sarcastic we are only asking for what we believed we are entitled. The most humiliated part don't end here, we saw cookies on the front desk and it looks delish so decide to try, even before we open the cover she again told us off to use the tongs, she really ruined our day!!! We do not felt welcome at all, first and last time we will be staying here. For the prices we paid here we can get better accommodation with more friendly staff. I will definitely not recommend any of my friends to stay here.....

    Hotel is situated on Granville Street with only a 15 minute walk to the nearest Skytrain station to the airport, around 20 minutes walk to Canada Place and a short bus ride to Granville Island (although within walking distance if preferred). Our plans consisted of us staying 2 nights and returning for 1 night after we had spend a couple of weeks travelling around BC and Seattle. On our return there was a mix up with the booking (not sure whether it was agent or hotels fault) but this was solved quickly. Our party of 3 adults stayed in a good sized 2 double bedded suite with a sofabed. The living area contained a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Our suite, with balcony, overlooked the front of the hotel which was quite noisy with traffic and revellers on the Saturday night! Although there are areas where, sadly, homeless people tend to congregate on Granville Street we did not feel unsafe. The food served in the adjacent restaurant was good with very pleasant staff. I would return to this hotel.

    My wife and I stayed at the Chateau Granville for two nights in early Sep prior to a cruise. We were very satisfied with the hotel. Check in was quick, staff were very helpful, and the room was great. However, we walk a lot and their location is not the greatest for walking. We did walk to nearby restaurants and to Granville Island to site see, but were not real comfortable. There was an abnormal number of homeless and street people on the sidewalks at all times of the day. Was told there was a drug rehab clinic somewhere in the area which may have contributed. In addition the area appears to be more run down than other parts of the city we saw. With this said we thought the hotel was great and would stay there again. Just be aware of your surroundings if you go out.

    So, we were a little concerned when we arrived by some of the surrounding area. One of the lifts was out of action which was a pain in the backside when we were trying to check out as we had to wait over 10 mins for the lift to be clear. I really liked the size of the room, the separate sitting area and the outside area. The air con didn't reach the bedroom as much as I would have liked and it felt a little stuffy. We could walk to plenty from here, and loved the convenience to Roundhouse station where you can get a direct train to YVR. The service was good at front desk, we loved the cookies each day too. They kindly stored our luggage and the gent that took our bags was really friendly and reassuring. Some of the decor did feel a little dated, but with such a comfy bed, it really didn't bother us as we were out most of the day. I probably wouldn't stay here as a single female as I wouldn't have been very comfortable at night, but I would stay again with friends or my partner. Firestone pizza round the corner was great!

    This was our first trip to Vancouver. We weren't sure where to stay while here because we were planning on not having a car. You do not need one!!! As with most large cities there are some elements on the street that some people do not wish to deal with. The hotel is just a block or two away from some of the cities "night spots" so expect to some homeless people around. We felt perfectly safe walking up and down the street to and from the hotel. The Hotel is secure, clean, and the suite was a very nice size and layout and even had a decent sized balcony. The hotel is close by all of the transportation hubs/buses/and breweries - Yaletown just a few blocks away. We walked to the water taxi to get to Granville Island. Picked up the free shuttle right outside the hotel to Capilano Bridge ( a must ) and walked to Canada Place passed all the wonderful shopping on Robson and took free shuttle to Grouse Mountain ( another must but be sure to take Ski lift to the Peak - beautiful!!!) Best part was taking the Ferry over and spending the night in Victoria. Our Concierges were fabulous! Would definitely stay here again. We did have one of the elevators out of service during most of our stay but the staff was very apologetic and it really wasn't that bad ( we were on 12th floor of 15) especially since we were on vacation...what is the rush. : ' )

    We stayed here for 3 days before our Alaska cruise from August 17-20/17. It is a very central hotel within walking distance to Granville Island, the waterfront and Yaletown. We had a suite in the front of the building with a small balcony. Granville Street was very lively at night while we were there. If noise bothers you, perhaps a room at the back of the hotel would be more comfortable. We had breakfast twice at the hotel - we were served more than we could eat. It was very good. While we were in Vancouver we visited Capliano Bridge park. It was very crowded, if we had any choice of times it would have been better to go in spring or fall. We took the free shuttle to the park directly from our hotel. We also went to Steveston in Richmond and to Queen Elizabeth Park. Both places were lovely.

    Very dated hotel, no driveway to the front of the hotel, you have to get dropped off on the street. 2 tiny elevators next to lobby registration desk with limited amount of room to fit. Rooms dated- furniture, style color. Asked for handicap room- they call it "disabled"- and said I had one- that meant it had a grab bar in the tub, but no other assistive devices to help you stand from the toilet or get into our out of the tub if you could climb over the wall. Beds- too high for short people who can't climb onto a bed but fairly comfortable. Restaurant was ok, nothing great for food, room service options limited food so-so. Was more expensive than I thought it should be. Not sure if travel agent picked it and got a kickback or my parents- though they are not BW rewards people and would have stayed in a Hilton property if they had a choice.

Location was great to walk to places to eat, etc. Tours also picked us up at the hotel which was great so we did not have to drive in the crazy traffic. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. A bit pricey, but that is what you get when booking for a downtown location.

    « Great overnight prior to Cruise »

    Despite being a bit hesitant about booking a Best Western due to my own stereo type of the hotel name in the US, it was a great night. We flew into Vancouver the day before for a cruise to Alaska and we picked a great hotel. It's conveniently located in the city for good Resturant s and the port. The staff was both friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, clean, and overall cost was affordable. I would recommend and stay again.

    We were in Vancouver for 2 days and our stay at the Chateau Granville was excellent. The staff is courteous, helpful and very welcoming. The manager was great too! We had our dogs with us and he made sure to include them in our welcome with a doggy treat bag. Great location. Parked our truck and walked around to all the sites. Hotel staff shared with us about things to see and do and about special events going on during our stay which was helpful in planning our days.

    I found both the Manager and the concierge to be extremely helpful in many regards. In addition to accommodating our bicycles indoors one night, they gave some great recommendations for activities and where to go that made our stay in Vancouver truly memorable and would prompt me to highly recommend others to visit Vancouver and stay at the Best Western Chateau Granville as well. Excellent staff that genuinely understand how to address the specific needs and requests of their guests. Kudos all around! Location was also excellent - a short walk to anywhere in downtown Vancouver;-)

    « Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and with a courteous staff »

    I recently had a five-night stay with my teenagers, and we enjoyed this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. The suite we had on one of its top floors was clean, modern, reasonably priced for the summer and provided us with a nice view looking north. We did not hear any noise from Granville Street from our room. While we were not thrilled with the hotel being in a rather sketchy neighborhood. being from the New York City area, we were not thrown by this. We enjoyed the close proximity to Yaletown and its fine restaurants. We regret we did not try out the hotel's own adjacent restaurant.

    « Granville Street Vancouver »

    We decided to stay at the Best Western as we were going on a cruise and the hotel is located downtown on Granville Street and within walking distance to the ships. Check in was easy and we found the hotel to be clean with large comfortable rooms. As you are downtown it is close to shopping and restaurants. Supper at the hotel was very good and medium priced. The only negative comments are that the room we had faced the street and it is very noisy all night long, and for the price of the room I feel that parking and a continental breakfast should be inlcuded. I would recommend this hotel and hope that they change to include parking and breakfast.

    « Convenient Location, Okay Staff »

    The property itself was conveniently located in downtown Vancouver putting you nearby lots of restaurants and stores. The room was comfortable and clean. There is complimentary wi-fi, water in the lobby as well as cookies. The bell boys by far were the friendliest and most helpful staff at this property. I only wish that the front desk staff shared their hospitable spirit. I really wish I remembered the names of the two bell boys who helped us, one was a older gent who seemed to really love the rodeo and the other a nice Irish lad who was just so pleasant.

    This hotel was in a great location and had spectacular customer service! Upon arriving at the hotel we wanted to visit Vancouver's waterfront, and the hotel was within a 10-15 minute walk to Canada Place and many local restaurants and shopping locations. We were also partaking in one of Vancouver's hop-on hop-off tours, and the stop for the tours was literally right outside of the hotel! The room was clean, the Wi-Fi worked great and the customer service was spectacular. There were two incidences where we requested more towels and the towels were brought up within minutes! In the lobby, the concierge was also very helpful, always asking if there was anything we needed assistance with, and eager to help with any questions we had. The only thing that I wish different about the stay is that it would have been nice if breakfast was included. In saying that- there are nearby convenience and grocery stores which make a quick breakfast for the morning possible. Overall, the stay was great, and this hotel is located close to many of Vancouver's various attractions whether you be visiting for business, or as a tourist.

    « Hot bedroom »

    Airconditioning in the bedroom didn't work properly. They share 1 system with the sitting area. Most of the cold air goes there. Blocking the airflow there increases the flow in the bedroom a bit. Still it was too hot to sleep. Just across the street on Granville avenue there are some weed shops that attract some 'junkies' etc. they tend to stay on that part alone though and can easily be avoided. Never felt unsafe.

    My fiancé and I are here on business, and were previously booked into another hotel (no more than 4 doors down) that turned out to be absolutely horrible. Rebecca, Drew, and Allanah at Best Western were incredible. I can't stress enough how they turned our visit around. They were able to get us underground secure parking (which the other hotel did not have parking at all), they were able to get us a room on super short notice at a great rate, and even gave us a nicer room than we expected. They held our bags until the room was ready without problem, and have left me feeling so happy and relieved. Huge shout out to them and their impeccable customer service!

    « Good Hotel, Great Location »

    We stayed at the Best Western for 4 nights and cound the accomodations to be very reasonable for our family of 5. The bedroom being separated from the living area was an added bonus for the 5 of us. The hotel is older but it is in a great location and is kept clean. There is a mini fridge, microwave and Keurig machine in every room. The workout facility has good machines and was never too full. The location of this hotel was great. We were able to walk to Granville Island, Canada Place, Stanley Park, Yaletown and many other places. Those places are also easily accesible via cab. Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Grind were all a short drive away. There is also a free shuttle that will bring you to some of these places. We were also able to walk to Sunset Beach in about 25 minutes to view the Festival of Lights (which is a great show). Plenty of shopping and restaurants are available to you as soon as you step out of the hotel. Downtown Vancouver can have questionable activities in some places but we never felt unsafe. The restaurant on site also had good food and service. Drew, who stands at the front kiosk, was most helpful during our stay. We had a lot of questions about things to do, places to eat, and places to avoid with our kids. He was very detail oriented and explained everything we asked plus more! He gave great suggestions about things we hadn't even considered doing and he gave honest advice about the activities we planned. He was very friendly, and though we didn't need it, I also saw him arranging cabs and helping with luggage for other guests. His service was really above and beyond.

We tried the suite room with living room and balcony. It was weekend so we can watch activities on the street from balcony. Nice room and bathroom too. Before check out we ordered taxi at front desk for 5, but the taxi refused to take 5 so we took 2 taxis and no help from hotel staff.

    Booked this hotel for one night as I wanted to watch a show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The location is excellent. A short stroll down Granville St. and you will come across many restaurants and bars. The theatre was only 5-10 mins walk away. Pacific Place was 5 mins walk. Many attractions are within easy walking distance. I booked a single bedroom suite and the room was extremely spacious. Lots and lots of room . The beds were comfortable and the chocolates on the bed were a nice touch. It seems that all rooms have a balcony. The living space with the couch and tv was spacious and with three of us in the room it felt extremely roomy. The room would be bigger than some studio apartments out there. There is a bar and restaurant at the hotel.I did not go there so can't comment on that. The lobby area is a little small and there are only two lifts. The lifts seem to be old and make strange noises when moving. There is parking below the hotel and was charged $16 for overnight parking. All in all, it was a great stay and would easily recommend to anyone needed a convenient location in downtown Vancouver.

    Nice clean hotel located in the heart of Vancouver. If you stay on a Friday or Saturday night be sure to ask for a room that is not on the street side. They close off the street and party all night. The noise carries and it sounds like the people are in your room. We were on the 14th floor and couldn't figure out where the party was that was so noisy! After two nights of the noise we asked to be moved. This was on a Sunday and the street party doesn't happen so we got one nights good sleep out of three. Bell Captain is a wealth of information of what to see in Vancouver. He will help you arrange a tour or give you a map to do it on your own. The restauraunt attached is fabulous for breakfast. Dinner was a horrible experience. Walk a few blocks from the hotel to find the row of restaurants to chose from. Lots of good seafood, excellent service.

    Cons: *The hotel was in downtown and not in the ideal area for kids it you want to walk around. *Room was not as nice as shown on the pictures. *Strange smell in the room. Not offensive but not pleasant. *$20 extra for parking. Not noted anywhere so that was a surprise and had I known I would have probably chosen a different hotel *Offered free coffee pods but $1.60 extra for bottled water in the room. Can't have coffee without the water. *Electrical outlets are in an inconvenient locations for devices. Not any near the bed where you can charge & use unless you pull out the end table & unplug the lamp & alarm clock. The connections were loose too so it wouldn't hold the plug securely and fall off easily. *Faucet was dripping and could not tighten it to stop it. Pros: *Nice staff *Nice restaurant connected to the hotel but mediocre food. *Bed was really comfortable. Sheet a little scratchy but pleasant. *Room included a small fridge, microwave, Keurig & safe. *Lobby offers chilled lemon, mint & cucumber infused water and cookies. (Reasonable prices for room service from restaurant. Overall: Because of the location of the hotel and the lack of access for device charging in this digital age, I would not choose to visit this hotel again.

We arrived on the 21st (my birthday) and dropped our bags- upon our return we found that we were upgraded from the 2nd floor to the 12th and the room was much more than we expected! To my surprise I found 3 cheese cakes for us and a very sweet birthday card. Thank you so much for that! On the 22nd- our wedding anniversary we received chocolate dipped strawberries, champagne, and bubbles for a bath. The 23rd was no different, my wife's birthday and she received a piece of chocolate cake and a very sweet birthday card. All brought in while we were out, so we came back to a sweet surprise each day. As you can see we had a lot to celebrate and do ever year- the staff was amazing and took care of us every step of the way.

    « After Cruise stay »

    We got off a cruise ship on Friday morning and stayed at this hotel. As it turned out the location was perfect as it was right at one of the stops of the Vancouver Hop On/Off tour route. We also took advantage of the ships coordination with the tour company to deliver our luggage from the ship to the hotel. When we got back, our luggage was in our room. And to boot, there was a small plastic bag with some extra coins that had fallen out of luggage (to much for my coin purse). When we got there, they checked to see if it was ours as they were not sure. How easy would it have been to just keep a bag full of coins?). Kudos to the front desk and bellhops. The room itself was beautiful. There was a 'living room' that connected to a desk and cabinets (that had the fridge, coffee maker and microwave). There is a chair and sleep-sofa in the LR area with a coffee table. There is a balcony in front of the desk. And yes, you can go out on the balcony which was nice as it overlooked Granville street. The bedroom is separate with a door that closes. We did encouter 2 issues. The first was the faucet in the bathroom sink seemed to be plumbed wrong (from what we're used to). If you turned the water on to 'cold' it was hot and vice versa. The tub was correct. The other thing was hubby commented someone was yelling or partying during the night. As it turns out, they shut part of Granville Street on Friday nights, which we didn't know. Had we known, we would have asked for a room facing away from Granville. All in all, we loved the hotel and should we ever make it back to Vancouver, we would stay there again.

The restaurant in the hotel is good, but there are dozens more and various bars and Night clubs and bars in the area. Shopping is easily accessible for most everything within a 6 block radius. Public transit is right out front and a short walk takes you to The Canada Line, giving access to the rest of the Lower mainland and the Airport. The area around the Hotel has people of all ages and walks of life, which we find interesting. Have stayed dozens of times and always felt comfortable and safe.

    The hotel is located in downtown Vancouver on Granville street which is very busy. The hotel is clean and good breakfast choice. Very friendly staff and well appointed rooms.

    We are a family of 2 adults and 2 small children, and found The Best Western Chateau Granville to be the perfect place to spend our May Long weekend. Upon check in, the 2 front desk agents were friendly, funny and upbeat. Our room was huge and having the separate living room from the bedroom made it nice to relax after the kids went to bed. It was insanely clean and the entire place gave me a little upscale feel. We loved walking down the road to grab pizza by the slice or jump on the sky train. We ate at Edge restaurant and while the food was really great, it was over $80 for a pretty simple breakfast. The service and food were great, just a little pricey for breakfast for 4 on a budget. My one and only "complaint" if you could even call it that (and was completely out of the hotels control) were the balconies. While lovely for adults, we were nervous about the safety and railing height for our 2 kids. We called the front desk and within 2 minutes someone was upstairs with a master key locking it from the inside so we didn't have the stress about it. We will be back 100%!!

    « European Flavor »

    The Best Western Plus Chateau Granville has a definite European flavor from the small "parking lot" (2 cars) in front to the rooms inside to the attached Edge restaurant. A bit small by American standards the rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean. The Edge restaurant is very convenient and the food is excellent (reviewed separately). They do not rely on your "captive audience" status as there are many excellent restaurants in convenient walking distance. The staff was very helpful to a pair of very, very late arriving "senior citizens" (with no luggage thanks to Alaska Airlines). If your travels ever take you to Vancouver, I would heartily recommend the Chateau Granville.

    « It's a Best Western....in a sort of sketchy area.... »

    As a former travel agent I understand that the Best Western brand is a franchise and for the most part is used for brand recognition. I had hoped this Best Western would be more on par with the Best Western in Victoria or the Best Western we stayed at in Lake Tahoe or Pismo Beach. This is not that. It's a large scale hotel that has a convention centre space inside as well as a restaurant attached to it. When we arrived on a Tuesday evening around happy hour and found the restaurant pretty empty that didn't bode well. Our initial front desk staff was polite but curt and not particularly warm or friendly. When we got to our room (which was quite nice, decent view, comfy bed) we found the wifi password did not work. When I called down to the desk to ask the person I spoke with sounded almost accusatory in his tone. When I was given the correct password he mentioned they would send up a new sheet for the directory (3 days there and this was never done). The stretch of Granville St this hotel is on is rough - it's seen better days and come nightfall there are lots of clubs (mostly punk, metal type places). There is a mini mart across the street however it doesn't open until 8am which seemed crazy to me. The hotel could stand to improve their customer service and perhaps consider including a deluxe continental breakfast (we found that many surrounding restaurants weren't open for breakfast). We wound up having breakfast both mornings at Tim Horton's (not my idea of vacation breakfast). I would be hard pressed to stay at this hotel again based on our recent experience.

    « Disappointed »

    Overall a disappointing experience. We stayed on points but if I had paid cash I would have been upset. The posted rate online was $249/night. Way overpriced. Liked: Suite style format of rooms. We had 1 bedroom w living room. Includes small bar fridge and microwave. Location was great for walking access to Yaletown and some great restaurants. Disliked: No parking in front for pick up/drop off. Chase patrons away. Bullet-proof foam pillows which jack your head up. Rude and unhelpful answer when I inquired about ANY other type of pillows. No. Tough luck. So I ended up wrapping my fleece jacket up to form a more suitable pillow. Not great. Stingy on coffee supplies. Very basic hotel. Not a 4 star hotel at all.

    « Over charged »

    Hotel over charged me for my stay. I was told I could pay in U.S dollars and the rate / exchange they give me was absolutely horrible. Location is nice but be careful how much they say they are going to charge you when you arrive your stay will cost more then told.

    I had a fabulous time here. I came for the Vancouver marathon. This hotel is close to shopping, great restaurants and the metro. Wonderful base from which to explore. The staff is the real jewel here, so friendly and helpful. I had awesome views from my room and the on site restaurant is great.

    Hotel is located within easy walking distance of Yaletown and other great areas to explore. We rented bikes and rode around Stanley Park, enjoyed the easy bike paths. Vancouver is a foodie city - the restaraunt at the hotel was great! And much quieter than the ones in Yaletown. Would highly recommend this hotel.

    The room was just as good as the higher end hotels. Just needed one night before cruise departure. Went out in area to find dinner, because the hotel restaurant closed at 9:30. The area around the hotel seemed a little questionable. I would advise staying in after dark.

    « Top 3 Reasons »

    1: The rooms in this hotel are cared for and maintained with meticulous detail. Everything from cleanliness to the chocolate snack with the personalized note from the housekeeper. 2: The location is great for seeing Vancouver on foot. Granville Street certainly has it's issues but I've never experience any aggressive pan-handling. I've stayed in this hotel on multiple occasions and walked in every different direction. Vancouver is a fabulous city. 3. The value for this property is exceptional. The staff are friendly, professional and engaged in insuring a good night's stay. I always sleep well at this hotel.

    We stayed in a very comfortable and clean one bedroom suite. The beds were very comfortable with nice bedding and plenty of pillows. We were on the 4th floor so the street noise was very noticeable, but given the area of town and the fact it was a Saturday night, not surprising, and not the hotel's fault. We had breakfast in the Edge restaurant, it was not inexpensive, but very tasty and generous portions. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    I stayed at BW Chateau Granville for a work event in the conference centre and my husband and son traveled with me. The hotel was very convenient for both business and tourism - the area is excellent for walking and exploring through busy shopping and restaurant areas plus parks and beautiful scenery. The hotel staff answered questions readily and with a pleasant attitude, and were eager to help us with our luggage and transportation. Room service and restaurant food we tried was good but not outstanding. We had a king bedroom suite and it was very clean and appreciated the extra space with a toddler. No complaints about our 3-day stay at this Vancouver hotel.

    If your looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to all the attractions in Vancouver then this is the place for you. My family of four stayed in one of the suites at the beginning of April. Most of the attractions in Vancouver were within a 15 minute walk of this hotel. The only reason I didn't rate the hotel was a family member who had planned to sleep on the cough in the living room area of our suite was unable to as it was so uncomfortable. So long as your not planning on having someone sleep on the sofa bed you will enjoy staying at this hotel.

    Rooms clean, everything well stocked. Fast help when needed. Melvin in the restaurant was great! Food was good too. Felt a little unwelcome right at the beginning. Received some disapproving looks from check in staff. And also had our rooms separated by an entire floor. I understand why, I was in a small group of 20-something year olds, casually dressed. But it would have been nice to be given the benefit of the doubt. Not all people in their 20's are loud partiers. But all in all, it was a great time.

    I stayed here for one night before getting on the ferry to Nanaimo. For some reason I was expecting something a little fancier. Parking was inconvenient and shouldn't have been a charge considering. There was zero driveway to drop off your luggage. That situation was kind of a mess. The room was small and simple, but bed was comfortable and balcony view was very nice. Good water pressure and clean. Great location.

    « Do not go here! »

    My advice to all my fellow travelers is please do not book here. I noticed a stain on the blanket/blanket cover and I thought it was some sort of chocolate stain. However, upon review of the entire blanket, I noticed multiple spots where there was staining and I noticed that these looked like blood stains and not food stains. The way the stains were smeared onto the sheets is very questionable. The darkish red appearance is a sign of when blood dries. I told the manager this and he calls his "executive" cleaning individual and they determined that it was a food stain. Of course they were going to say that! Who is going to fully acknowledge the fact that this was a blood stain? Please do not go here! I question there hygiene policies and I don't think they even change these blankets. Be very weary of this place folks because it disturbs me to think that they couldn't see these stains. And worst, then I brought it to the manager's attention, he did nothing! He said he was going to remove it from his inventory...I mean shouldn't that be the case anyways? Please save your money folks!

    « Horrible Staff but Great Location »

    There's a good chance that those of you reading may have family and/or guests joining you long after check-in. Let my experience serve as a warning before you book. Forewarning: This hotel programmed their elevators to always stop at the lobby regardless which direction its going and every single person is carded upon re-entry. After check-in and returning from a night out with friends & family, the following scenario played out. We had 2 rooms with 2 beds w/ pull out couches booked: - After checking IDs, the clerk working denies everyone from going up. Tells us that we need to pay for extra guests. - OK, I understand he's following rules. I offer to pay. He denies that request. - I ask why. He says it's hotel policy. (Then why did he tell me in the first place?) - Baffled, I ask to book another room and - without hesitation - he says the hotel is full without even bothering to check the system. - 2 other unrelated guests staying at the hotel return from dinner (who both stayed the night before) and get denied since one of them wasn't 'registered'. - Now, 3 rooms worth of people are arguing with this worker in the lobby. - Refusing to compromise or let us pay for extra guests, he ultimately let 2 of us go grab our belongings from our rooms. - Seeing no solution and no refund in sight, we were forced to book rooms at a motel. What's sad is that we received help from a different fully booked hotel in the area who pointed us in the right direction. - Here's the kicker, he mutters "Never book with us again" while we were leaving. Completely uncalled for from someone working in the hospitality industry. Major Takeaways: - Anyone returning after 10PM, not 'registered' during check-in, will be denied entry - Guests still CANNOT be added if they show up late. - Apparently, you can still be denied even if you already stayed a night. - Staff would prefer lose your business rather than accommodate one extra body in a room. - After reading other 1-star reviews, it proves that my situation is reoccurring at this hotel. Their hotel policy is backwards and their staff is in dire need of training in hospitality etiquette.

    My family and I booked two room for the weekend here at the Best Western, I have to say it was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The service was soo bad we didn't even stay a night. We had one extra person in our group and they wouldn't let us add him to our group. We waisted all that money paying for the the rooms for the weekend and ended up staying at a motel. The man in the front big guy named "Ab" was really rude and told us "please don't come back." WOW really! I will never be staying at this Best Western again!!!

No complaints at all, but one suggestion re your restaurant, put pizza for one on the menu, like Earls or Speak Easy, Makes for a nice snack later at night. After all what is the microwave good for. Honourable mention to the cleaning staff as well, great job.

    We stayed here pre and post Asian trip.Good location and very helpful staff. On our first visit we had a room that had a bedroom separate from the main area. The room was large with great living space. A TV in both rooms, microwave, fridge and a safe in the room. Close to shopping and restaurants. Bed is firm but comfortable. Free WI-FI as well as computers available in the lobby. We had a problem with our safe and it was taken care of within 30 minutes, the safe had to be replaced. On our second visit we were on the 15th floor. The room was smaller, no separate bedroom and no safe. There are safety deposit boxes at the desk. The room was adequate for our needs but the separate bedroom would have been nice. We were there on Halloween Weekend and there was a very loud all night party on the street. The hotel does provide your room with earplugs to help you sleep on noisy nights We locked our keys in our suitcase and a staff member cut the lock and told us where we could get a new lock. We had room service breakfast on two occasions and it was great. There is a restaurant in the hotel as well with decent food. I would stay again as the staff are excellent and which is a big plus for me.

    « Nice hotel in downtown Vancouver »

    Stayed here before a cruise down the western US. Nice multi storied hotel with balconies. In Oct. it was a bit cool out there but I imagine in the spring and summer it would be nice to sit out there with a drink. The front rooms face a fairly busy street with a good view of the near by tall condos. My room in the back faced some construction but no traffic noise. We were on the 4th floor. The hotel has an attached bar and restaurant and there are numerous restaurants all around. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful as well as the concierge. We got there well before checkin and wanted to take the hop on-hop off bus. The concierge let us know it is about a 1 1/2 hour ride around Vancouver and at this time of the year the bus terminates early. He advised to take the bus in the morning to take full advantage of it. Unfortunately we had to get on a boat so we did not have the time (maybe next time). He did tag our luggage and store it so we could go out to a late lunch and walk around until checkin time. The room(s) were quite large, a sitting room and a bed room. 2 flat screen TVs a micro wave, a small refrig (inside a cabinet), and a coffee maker. The bathroom was clean and had adequate towels. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were full ( with my wife's head raised a bit she did not snore, a blessing). There is no doubt if I go back to Vancouver for any reason I will stay at the Chateau Granville for it's central location and great staff.

    « Expensive but nice »

    Fortunately I was able to book the room with rewards points. Otherwise the two nights would have cost me over $500. I had a "queen superior view room" which was advertised as having a "a breathtaking bird's-eye view of the city". Well, if you call some big condo buildings and a construction site breathtaking, I guess it fits. The room was fairly small compared to other Best Western hotels but I guess that's normal in a big city. It did have a fridge, microwave and coffee-maker. Breakfast was not included which is a bit of a let-down considering the room rates. The lobby was extremely busy whenever I went there, lots of people (tour groups maybe) checking in at the same time but I had the impression that it was handled quite efficiently. Parking was extra at $16 plus tax per night. Personally I think it should be included as well but what can you do. They have a concierge which is really nice when you're new to the city and need recommendations for places to see, restaurants, etc. Location is quite good to explore the city but there are some questionable shops and people around. I would stay there again but only if I could use rewards points again. Otherwise their rates are just too steep.

    « Very pleased »

    I stayed here for six nights during the first half of October and can say this is an excellent choice of hotel. My suite was very clean and comfortable; all the staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful; the bar and restaurant (both on the ground floor) were very pleasant and set slightly back from Granville Street. The service was great, too. The wi-fi was free, easy to connect with excellent coverage - and separate passwords for public areas and my suite. To address some of the earlier points: Yes, the hotel is in a somewhat rundown part of downtown, but by no means a reason not to stay there. It's within walking distance of Robson Street, restaurants, cafes, buses and the SkyTrain and also ideally located for Granville Island and the airport. There are often one or two taxis waiting outside, but also a direct line in the lobby to a taxi company. The two lifts were busy at times, but not always and the waits weren't too long. There was some noise from party-goers outside during the early hours on some of the nights, but this is to be expected from a downtown hotel. I loved the view of the city night lights of the street below from my fifth floor suite. I was also awoken by noise from guests during the early hours on a number of occasions - but this was beyond the control of the hotel and can happen anywhere. I would certainly consider staying here again.

    We spent three nights in a one bedroom suite at the back of the hotel facing a construction site.We requesred a quiet room and as it was a long weekend, it was, as predicted by the reservation clerk, very quiet. The two beds in the bedroom were comfortable, but the pull out couch was not. The location was wonderful for shopping, ethnic restaurants, the art gallery and transportation by bus around the city. Parking fee was reasonable, under the hotel, secure and spotlessly clean. We would stay again but choose a room with three beds.

    « Chateau in Mid Town »

    After having a dispute with another hotel chain, my wife and I decided to stay at the Best Western Chateau Granville. As far as location is concerned not right in the middle of Downtown but close enough with plentiful easy cheap public transport, to all the mainstream tourism sites, also an easy walk. After a 3 flights from Sydney to San Francisco ( 14hrs 40 mins) , ( 5-hour layup) 2 hour fight to Vancouver and a 30 minute taxi trip to the hotel, my wife and I were just about in "Zombie Land". We were warmly welcomed by Aleah, I think that was the spelling of her name, we made our way to our room. The room was very comfortable for what we wanted. The hardest part is understanding the "upside down" switches for the lights and using the shower, which we soon got used to. Had a meal in Edge Restaurant, attached to the hotel. Good quality food, reasonably priced. The next morning we had breakfast. Cynthia attended to us with a warm welcome and attended to our requests and asked the appropriate questions as far as choices. We enjoyed Cynthia's company for the bulk of our stay and missed for a few mornings when Cynthia was on I believe Conference Duty. We stayed at the Chateau for just on 9 nights, and ALL of the staff attended to our questions and requests with a smile and support. Special mention for TOTAL Customer Service, to Aleah, Danny (Concierge) always with a smile and a hello, and the Duty Manager on our last day who promptly checked out our room so we could get our cash bond back, so we could return to Sydney. Would definitley if coming back to Vancouver stay there. Allan C

    « Staff deserves a Plus, Hotel does not »

    The staff here were friendly and helpful from check-in to check-out. They were able to suggest some great things in the area to do, assist with taxi information, and they are more than willing to exchange USD to CAD after you spend all of your money on nearby Robson Street! We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was spacious and comfortable. However, the setup of the suite isn't the greatest. There's a large desk that's blocking the fridge area. If someone is sitting at the desk they will have to move to allow access to the fridge. There is only one air conditioning unit for the entire suite so the temperature fluctuates between the main area and the bedroom. The biggest gripe I had about the room is the cleanliness. At first glance the room looks clean. But if you look closer, there is dirt and grime in the corners, especially in the bathroom. There were also little bugs in the bathroom. I informed the front desk clerk who said he would leave a note for housekeeping but did recommend that I be the one to make it known as the hotel will respond much faster to customer comments than his notes (so I'm making it known on Trip Advisor! I also left a note in the room though just in case). The location of the hotel also isn't the best. As others have reported, it is across of a sex store, there's numerous homeless people all along the street, and there are several bars and strip clubs in the area. I would NOT walk around at night. There are always cabs parked in front of the hotel- use them at night, even if you're only going down the street! We saw some scary things happening when we ventured out one night. It is unfortunate that the hotel condition and location is poor because the staff are great. I probably would try another hotel the next time I'm in Vancouver.

    The hotel is in a convenient location. Rooms are OK, maybe a little old and not great value for money. Overall the hotel and it's facilities are nothing impressive. The 2 bellmen that were on duty during my stay were exceptionally friendly though and definitely made a difference in my view of the hotel.

    « Not for families »

    The hotel is across the street from a peep show, there is a strip club on the next block, and the night time is full of sirens and yelling. Wouldn't want your kids to walk in this area, even during the day. The parking garage is almost impossible for vans and trucks to get into. The best part is the gym in the hotel. No pool though. Most of the staff seemed overworked. Had to wait a long time to check in. The boy at the bell desk was the most friendly and helpful staff in the hotel. We had to change rooms because someone had smoked in the first room we were given. Otherwise, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the small fridge was helpful.

    This hotel is right in the heart of Shopping and Club life. Multiple clubs down the street, and fun restaurants That being said... it is loud at night. The hotel however provides ear plugs, which was nice :) The place where the hotel is situated though... there is a strip club down the street, and an Adult store kiddy-corner from the hotel. Just an interesting atmosphere. The restaurant connected to the hotel was great.

    The hotel staff were all very friendly and the rooms were very clean. We especially liked the bellman named Drew who was very helpful each day we stayed. He was honest and humoured us as well. Overall an excellent location to all the attractions - Stanley park, Gastown - a short bus ride, Rogers Arena, Aquabus ferry, Granville island, Sunset beach and excellent bars and restaurants only a short walk away. We will definitely be back !

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. At the bell desk, Drew and Deiniol were very helpful and gave us great advice for getting around. This is close to Granville Island. Do as Deiniol suggested take the aquabus to Granville Island. The walk is long and a little scary across the bridge. Our room was large and comfortable. The bedroom was separate from the sitting area. The room had a refrigerator and a microwave. This Best Western does not provide free breakfasts, but they do have room service and a restaurant downstairs. This was the largest Best Western that I ever stayed at. Lots of restaurants around the hotel.

    My friend and I enjoyed our stay on Granville. The amenities were sufficient and the suite had two large flat screen televisions. The rooms were clean and kept clean over our two night stay. Each room has a balcony. Unfortunately ours faced a building under construction and overlooked the roof of an unattractive old building. I also thought that for the price, the shower could be much nicer. There were cracks in the tiles and the grout could use a good scrub. Overall we enjoyed our time here but I think I would choose to stay elsewhere next time.

    « Party Time on Granville Avenue »

    If you are young or very young at heart and love to party hard (millennial style), then you would LOVE this hotel on a Friday or Saturday night. We found out by hearing the party scene outside our room window (even though we were on a top floor). Not much sleeping for us Saturday night. Otherwise the one bedroom suite was acceptable in a three-star style. Popcorn ceilings. Need for refurbishing. Breakfast was generous. We found out everyone asks for a top floor, quiet room. So we got the top floor, but wrong side of the hotel. the hotel is good for families and heavy sleepers.

    Hotel prices in downtown Vancouver are really high. The Chateau Granville was really good value. The prices were reasonable and the suites were very spacious - with separate lounge with desk and bedroom. The restaurant downstairs also had friendly and efficient waiters and good quality and value food. The hotel is within walking distance of all in downtown Vancouver, even though it is not on the Waterfront itself.

    This hotel has several offers which cannot be booked over the internet. I found this very annoying as we were trying to book from England and they could not seem to understand that I could not just use a Freephone to discuss the details with them, and of course, I had to ring to give credit card details instead of going through the Best Western site. We stayed one night before a cruise & three nights after. The hotel itself and the rooms are very nice and the area around is Ok with some nice restaurants and pubs nearby. We particularly liked the Two Parrots & White Spot. Unfortunately, there are some extremely seedy, shops & clubs nearby too, and quite a few people sleeping on the streets although we never felt threatened. It was very easy to walk everywhere from the hotel with a HOHO bus stop outside. The only bottled water in the room was to be paid for and the coffee machine had only four pods. If you wanted more you had to pay. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant and it was just OK. The service was terrible even through there were only half a dozen people in the room. Our companion never did get a glass of water to take tablets with. This bad service was repeated when we called in for a drink later that night. We were patently ignored whilst the two bar men carried on a conversation and only with reluctance, eventually served us. We did not go back The two concierge were outstanding and went out of their way to help with luggage, directions, taxis etc.

    Do not stay at this hotel! Elevator constantly breaking down, I've been here twice and both times this happened. Decor dated in the room I stayed in and had a funny smell. There was garbage under my bed that never was clean up in the 9 days that we stayed in the room. And the kicker, I stayed in this hotel in April and was not billed for it until 6 months later, with zero communication for the hotel, and my gift card I had provided them was not used.

    We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a king size bed and room with balcony. The room was very spacious and nice. There was a restaurant within the hotel and that was very convenient for us. I thought the prices for breakfast were a bit expensive but after ordering breakfast the first day, we realized how generous the portions were.

I would certainly stay here again if we are in the area.

    We booked into this hotel as it seemed central for Vancouver and all the amenities. It's a large, quite nice hotel. Perhaps a bit dated but clean and well equipped. Our room had a balcony. The photos on the website are very misleading.It is at the rough end of Granville Street and to get to it from the railway station we passed peep shows, night clubs, strip joints. There were any number of rough sleepers and pan handlers who asked for money all the time. There was drug paraphernalia and vomit in a couple of places. I know this probably happens everywhere in any big city. We were on the 14th floor and so had a good view of Granville Street at night which of course looks very colourful. It meant we were also out of the range of the late night fights, police sirens, possible gunshots and brawls that woke us both nights we were there . Whilst the hotel was ok and clean and the staff polite and helpful I would be very reluctant to return. Sorry.

    Good location although some may say Granville Street is dicey. I walked back to my hotel at ten from Yaletown.. No problem. I did not visit Granville St at all. Room: Excellent. Although as a female traveling alone I was put into a room with access to a beautiful and shared outside terrace. Beer can outside that door in the morning. BUT... Just don't stay in the floor.. The suite was great! Nice staff and clean and safe underground parking. Good walking distance for several things. I am fussy and I would recommend this hotel.

(We do love to walk though) Close to the train station which was fantastic when coming from the airport.

    « Great location »

    We stayed at this hotel in downtown Vancouver just one night while in the city to go to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. It was just a 15 minute walk each way on well lighted, populated streets so it was a good choice for that. The hotel is very clean, modern and has good staff. It has secure parking for an extra fee of about 16$ per night. Wifi is free and quite good strength. We had breakfast at The Edge restaurant, part of the hotel. It was very reasonable and very god service ad food. I walked to the Pacific Centre to shop and again an easy walk in the afternoon. There are lots of restaurants around for dinner. We went to the Banana Leaf on Davie Street and again walked. We would definitely stay here again. It was perfect or a visit to downtown Vancouver. My only complaint would be only 2 very slow clunky elevators for 15 floors. A few times we had to wait as elevators came and went full of families with all their luggage. We had a gorgeous view from the 15th floor! It was also a very quiet hotel. Soundproofing was good :)

    « Good enough, but could use a refresh »

    The location of the hotel is very convenient, but the area is a bit dodgy as it's in area where gentrification has started, but hasn't gotten all the way there. The staff is helpful and friendly, the room was clean and spacious, and the rates for a downtown hotel are reasonable. The rooms are in dire need of a refresh. From the phone in the bathroom that's straight out of a time capsule to the hostel-like hallways, it's clear there hasn't been a significant update since it was built. It's surprising that such large rooms had doubles rather than queens, and the mattresses are on the uncomfortable side of firm. I probably would not stay here again, though that's also because I probably would not stay in downtown Vancouver again. Transit has improved to the point where it's easy enough to stay in a nicer area without missing out on the city's main attractions. It's no longer worth paying a significant premium to stay in a part of town that is sketchy at best.

    « Nice rooms, seedy area. »

    The room was very nice although could use an update starting to get a little shabby. The hotel staff was excellent and very helpful. The restaurant in the hotel was really great for breakfast. We had drinks and a snack on the patio in front of the restaurant after a long day around Vancouver, very nice. The street the hotel is on is probably populated with more homeless, vagrant, drug using bums than any area we saw except between Gas town and China town. They use every other doorway as an outside urinal. The rest of the city is great. It is obvious that the city cares more about leaving the vagrants alone than keeping the city clean and nice for the residents who pay their salaries.

It is great value for money. The suites are extremely comfortable and spacious, which is very helpful for families. The staff service is flawless. We had a lost bag and Drew Sargent the duty manager volunteered to resolve the problem with the airline, which he succeeded in doing within the hour, letting us not lose valuable family time. The other front desk staff is especially helpful. Requests for Pack and Play beds for toddlers was responded to immediately. The Edge restaurant attached to the hotel has excellent food, reasonably priced. Special thanks to Odra for great service in the morning, and for Melvin taking care of us at lunch.

    the hotel was beautiful and the front desk staff very friendly but I cannot recommend the hotel because of the location. While walking to find a restaurant for dinner the smell of marijuana was very strong. The 'locals' appeared to be mostly homeless street folks. Not to judge them, but not a comfortable situation especially with a small child. I booked the hotel to use my air miles but never got to use them and had to pay full price because I changed my arrival date. Apparently this is not an option available when booking with air miles. I will be contacting air miles to see if I can get my travel miles back. I had booked a room with two queen beds but was given a room with two double beds.

    A good comfortable hotel which was chosen primarily because of the room configuration as we were travelling with our two teenage girls. It is based no more than a 10 minute walk from the main shopping area and art gallery. Service from the hotel staff was first class. If you don't enjoy walking buses & trams stop outside the hotel and provide easy access all over the city. The location may not suit those with younger families as Vancouver does attract a number of vagrants albeit we were never threatened or felt uncomfortable. A beautiful city which we will willingly return to and would be happy to re-visit this hotel.

    We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to a cruise out of Vancouver, then for 2 nights upon our return from the cruise. The hotel was a good value as we have 5 people and needed one room. All of the rooms appear to be suites, with a sitting area that has a fold out sofa, and then a bedroom. It gave us plenty of space to spread out. We also had a balcony on both of our rooms that was nice to stand on and look out at the city. One room we had faced Granville Ave, and they provided ear plugs for the street noise at night, although we did not need them. The rooms are basic - nothing fancy. The beds are not all that comfortable, but NOT uncomfortable either. The room was clean and has a fridge. The air conditioners do not work well. The sitting area stayed cool, but the bedrooms in both of the rooms we had were extremely hot and stuffy. We ate at The Edge, which is the restaurant connected to the hotel.

    We had a wonderful stay at the BW Chateau Granville. The hotel was beautiful, the beds comfortable, and the restaurant on site had great food and beer choices! The staff was pleasant, answered all our questions we had. It was within walking distance to Granville Island and a short cab ride to Canada Place (where we got off our cruise ship). You can easily walk to GasTown from Canada Place as well. The only thing that could have made it better for us was if they had a shuttle to and from Canada Place and the Airport (even at a price).

They did make the arrangements for a cab pickup to the airport for us, which was nice...We really enjoyed our stay!

    We stayed in the hotel at the start of a 3 week trip. The staff were incredibly helpful and pleasant, and the room was clean, fresh and comfortable. The bar and restaurant are also good. However, that area of Granville Street feels a bit uncomfortable - more people on the streets and under the influence of various substances than we saw elsewhere in the city.

    From Whistler, stayed in this hotel overnight for my flight going back to the Philippines the following day. Location of the hotel is pretty scary because there were so many unlikely characters around the area since this is near clubs. Too far from the bus stop where our bus from Whistler stopped. My aunt and I walked very long dragging my luggage. When we got to the lobby of the hotel, the staff didn't smile. She looked at me, gave her my name for my reservation. Handed me my room key, said a few things that I didn't understand because it seems she's in a bad mood. All I heard clearly was my room number and that's my key. Then, nothing. Not even to offer help for our luggage. The room we stayed is clean and space is just about right to roam around. Big bed, good smelling sheets but the view is awful. I like the bathroom though, especially the controls for the toilet bowl. Because of the vicinity where this hotel is located and the staff's attitude, I will never stay in this hotel at Vancouver again.

The hotel is well located - good service, good restaurant and close to other restaurants, 20 min walk to the Fly-Over, opposite a mini supermarket etc The rooms are resonably spacious, very comfortable beds and have good pillows (although 8 is way too many) and great city views. BUT......the bathroom is very tired (stone benchtops are new but everthing else is dated the 70-80's), my towel was so worn that it ripped. The air con is very noisy, however, they supply ear-plugs!! There is a microwave in the room, but no plates or cutlery. There are straws but no spoons for coffee making - very weird. There is a bar fridge but no drinks or snacks for purchase. There is an ice bucket but no glasses. The coffee machine was positioned so high that I had to stand on a chair to see inside (I am 175cm tall). We were on the 14th floor and I think any lower would have got traffic noise. They had so many little notifications scattered all over the room that you couldn't put your stuff down without moving it all first. They promote being "environmentally friendly" but they should start with reducing all the unnecessary paperwork!!

    Within easy walking distance to most places I needed to go to - Robson Street, CF Pacific Place, Hyatt Hotel (where the Sea-to-Sky downtown shuttle pick-up was) etc. Nearest Aquabus stop to go to Granville Island from is at Hornby Street and that is easily reached with less than 10 min of walking. Gentleman named Drew at the concierge knows everything and is amazingly helpful - what a delight!

    « Best Western Plus Chateau Granville Hotel & Suites in Vancouver, BC, Canada »

    A truly excellent hotel with old fashion class and elegance. The restaurant, conveniently located in the hotel, is superior in all respects. I enjoyed one of the best omelets I have ever had and home fried potatoes were to notch. This was our first stop on a Princess Cruise Lines Cruise Tour to Alaska. The trip could not have started more perfectly.

    « Really good base »

    Really good place to stay - although the street it is on makes you think what have I come to!! However it was only the one small area outside the hotel which was a bit rough. Room was nice, staff were excellent and you can get to lots of places easily from here. Only thing I would suggest would be a few more complimentary items such as a few free bottles of water. There was water in the room but was expensive!

    « CONVENIENT LOCATION »

    I had a king suite which was really a lot bigger (and more expensive) than what I needed. I picked this hotel because it was the closest to where my friends were staying in the Holiday Inn which was totally booked. The location was the best thing about the hotel. The worst thing is that my room smelled like someone had smoked in it.

    « Decent hotel, perhaps not worth the rate »

    I had a good stay at the Best Western on Granville St. The staff were especially good, always friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean, and it had a great view of the city. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable. I'm not sure it was worth the steep price tag, but I guess that hotels are expensive in this area in the summer.

    « The Staff take this place from Good to Great »

    This is my second time staying here. I chose it again because I remembered how kind and helpful the staff was and the location. Good news, the location is till the same. Good, central, close to a lot of restaurants and easy access to transit. In my last review I stated how comfortable the beds were, that too is the same. I would suggest one thing and that is update the plug ins. My phone charger kept falling out of not one but two plugs, I'm not sure if that's a hazard but it was annoying. Also the number of plugs. Most hotels have plugs in the base of their lamps, maybe they could update and do that because most times I had to leave my phone on the floor to charge. Now saying this it's not a reason to avoid this hotel just something I noticed. The concierge staff is amazing, the day time man Drew was very helpful in tips for things to do, how to get there, points of interest along the way. The evening man was always smiling and very polite. One change I noticed that I found very helpful was a card asking what exactly we would like the chambermaid to do. I like this because many times I have not put the towels down for changing yet they did. This add makes communicating with staff very effective. The front desk staff was also very helpful, trying their hardest to answer all questions. I will return to this hotel on my next trip to Vancouver and I hope to see the same happy helpful faces.

    Very comfortable room. We stayed in the Executive Suite. The restaurant, Edge, offers exceptional service, and, delicious fare of several types. I highly recommend the Meat Lovers Omelet for breakfast. The room, and, all amenities are very well kept. The Concierge cannot do enough for you. We will definitely stay here again.

    Had a nice suite on the 10th floor; it had everything we needed for our stay. For us it was in a good downtown location as we could walk to most areas or take the water taxis to get about. Yaletown was close by with its bars and restaurants, so it was handy for a night out.

    « Not that great for what you pay for. »

    We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel had a very 'old apartment' feel to it. The rooms were reasonable size with a balcony facing construction of another building so it was noisy and not a great view. The beds were okay and we didn't realized we paid for 2 twins bed so a bit less room than we're accustomed with. The pillows were comfortable. The shower and bathroom was mediocre. The elevator vibrated every time we used it. No free breakfast and the continental breakfast is priced at $12. Just walk to Tim Hortons a couple blocks down no problem. BE WARNED that right across the hotel there's an XXX store with peep shows so caution when you are travelling with children. Also, there's a strip club that you have to walk past before you get to Tims. There's under ground parking so your vehicle is secure but you have to pay for the parking which is $12. We thought it would be included in the hotel price but no. Free wifi with your own password. I didn't think it was the best location and value is mediocre at best. Some of the reception were nice some were pretentious.

    « Highly recommended »

    My wife and I were on a round trip from Calgary to Vancouver and return through June and july 2016. We planned to stay in Vancouver for three nights. From start to finish we found this hotel excellent. It is in the perfect place (Downtown) to visit so many places within walking distance. When we first arrived we were greeted by a young man who was not only polite and courteous but very helpful. Not having visited Vancouver before we asked him about the transport system. Not only did he provide us with maps but also printed out a step-by-step route of how to get to one place (Queen Elizabeth Park). We had a suite on the top (15th) floor and everything was perfect - the room was clean and bright and the bed was very comfy. The only thing we found odd was that there were two bottles of water in the room for which they wanted to charge CAD3.25 each. Most other hotels we stayed in during our 16 day tour gave complimentary water to guests. The adjoining restaurant (The Edge) was very good for breakfast. You can also have dinner there but I would recommend any of the many eating places in Downtown or the surrounding areas, there's lots to choose from. All-in-all a very enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to return here if we ever visit Vancouver again.

    Stayed overnight at the Best Western before taking a cruise. The suite was large (one room had a sofa, television, fridge, and desk, and the other had two beds) with a balcony overlooking the city. The sofa bed was more comfortable than the one I slept on during the cruise. Staff is very friendly, and the restaurant had a very good breakfast (I recommend the West Coast Salmon Benedict).

    Hotel is a nice hotel in a good location. Accessible to Granville Island and a fairly long walk downtown. Very active area at night with a lot of bars / clubs in the area and homeless people sleeping on Granville Street. Staff was helpful and friendly and the restaurant on the premises was fine. Parking on-site for a fee is convenient and safe. Two room suite was spacious and clean. No overall issues with this hotel.

    I haven't stayed at a Best Western in decades so was a bit leery of booking here. But to my surprise this was a wonderful room! Decent size bedroom and a great sized sitting room with a balcony. Looks like they recently remodeled as there was newer carpet and furniture. Bathroom is decent size but does need a bit of updating. Had refrig/microwave/Kurig. Location is not the best place. Across the street is a XXX place and the area is a bit seedy. Homeless people are around and lay on the sidewalks. At no time did I feel unsafe but I wouldn't want to stay in this area again. There is a restaurant attached which had good food.

    « Great hotel with easy garage self-park »

    Room was great with separate sleeping and living areas. Easy to find and park. Some of the area surrounding the hotel is questionable....homeless in doorways and adult shops very near the hotel, but a nice little local market across the street next to Templeton's...an old fashioned diner that was pretty good.

    « Disappointed »

    The Hotel is drab and tired, depressing brown furnishings are very unappealing. Carpets and room smelt musty and unpleasant. Noisy and undesirable location. Can't say anything positive especially after staying at another nearby hotel the week before which was very good. Best Western needs to uphold their standard!

    « Great Location nice Hotel »

    Great location on Granville street in central Vancouver. Within walking distance of all the major sights. Very comfortable large rooms with conformable beds. Rooms have tea and coffee making facilities which are handy and lovey balcony's which is particularly nice to get a view of the city. Definitely include breakfast in your stay as it wasn't too much extra and you get a full Canadian breakfast included which makes it great value. Hotel has underground parking and a gym. We also used the Vancouver skytrain to get to and from the airport, you can walk from the skytrain station to the hotel within 7 minutes and the cost to go oneway to the airport is only $8 much cheaper than a taxi and quicker too. I would stay in this hotel again and would recommend to anyone who is looking to visit Vancouver

    « Comfortable lodging, strategic location »

    We had an excellent stay. The beds were very comfortable and although our hotel is near a street that gets lively at night, we heard no street noises. Some might consider one of the nearby street environments as "dodgy" but we walked around those streets day and night and never had any problems. We just considered it part of the adventure. Staff were all very polite and friendly. Breakfast was a bit repetitive but was good. Parking fees are extra but not extremely expensive. Would enthusiastically stay here again!

    « Good location in the Heart of Downtown Vancouver »

    Checked in early on a Thursday. Our room was ready. The front desk clerk was efficient. If our room had not been ready, they had offered to keep our luggage at the front desk while we jumped on the shuttle hop-on, hop-off city tour bus that stops outside their hotel. We were on the 17th floor I think. Our room was uniquely shaped. Very small but nice view of the city skyline with an outside patio. Clean and nice décor. The maître d on the first floor was very helpful and friendly. A bit noisy at night - we heard people shouting on the streets below but that's typical in a large city. We had dinner at the restaurant which was just average. Breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was not good and overpriced. Dried eggs, horrible sausages (really large - German style? or maybe Canadian style but as big as kielbasis - I was expecting Bob Evans style) and the toast was very dry and thick. The price of the room was reasonable.

    « On the whole a good hotel »

    We stayed for 2 nights, my initial opinion of Vancouver wasn't a good one as the area the hotel is in is a little rough although the hotel itself was very nice and comfortable. Unfortunately when we arrived we had trouble getting into the car park as there were road works round the hotel. We were on the 4th floor at the front but wished we had a room on a higher floor as the noise in the early hours with traffic and people was quite loud. My daughters were on the 3rd floor at the back and were woken by the building work going on, so presumably once that is complete it should be ok.

    3
    « Good location and more ... yet for that price could be better »

    Pro: Very good location for walking around. Train not far and many great restaurants near. High floor is great for view (see photo) and not to hear the setreets. Friendly staff. Con: The air condition in the room makes a lot of noise. When it is hot the AC is needed, yet, sleeping with the air condition on is not practical with such a noise. Almost all places we slept had a central quiet air-condition which in that level of price for the room sounds logical to have...

    « Very pleasant accommodation in downtown Vancouver »

    I've been staying at the Chateau Granville for decades. It sustains it's excellence even though it's now a Best Western franchise. Disappointing that I was not granted Best Western credit on my (professional) husband's account because he was not registered as a guest as I was attending a Supreme Court hearing as a witness on one of his files with an Agent appearing on his behalf. Way too many restrictions to apply for Best Western membership status.

    « Good location and staff »

    This is a great "affordable" option in downtown Vancouver. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We found our room adequate, but smaller than normal US standards. It suited our needs fine for 2 nights. If we were there longer, I would upgrade to a larger room. We did not encounter any noise issues and did not find the neighborhood scary or concerning. Yes, there are homeless people but they did not bother us. From one direction you find a lovely neighborhood with tiny restaurants and shops. Cabs are easily available and very reasonable. There is also a decent restaurant and lounge onsite. I would definitely consider staying at the same property.

    « Great overall experience, would return »

    We recently spent four nights here and would definitely recommend. It's an older hotel but was well-maintained with some updates and most importantly, was clean and in good shape! It's a good home base for exploring Vancouver and while some reviewers have noted the "eclectic" nature of the area, I never felt unsafe (and we walked nearly everywhere except to Chinatown). The staff was terrific - in the restaurant and at the front desk - always smiling and helpful. Parking rates were reasonable for downtown Vancouver and we added the daily breakfast option which was great - made to order, not a buffet and you can substitute a lower-priced entree for the standard eggs/breakfast meat/toast/hash browns. There is currently nearby construction going on as other reviewers have noted, as well as some street noise (sirens, car horns, etc.) but we didn't find it so disruptive that it interrupted our sleep. The only downside was there are only two old and slightly creaky elevators which were very slow, and on our last day one went out so checkout was slower than usual since the one working elevator was so jammed. But overall, we'd return if our travels take us back to Vancouver.

    « Beware this is not a non smoking hotel »

    As soon as we entered our room it was obvious it was a smokers room. As I suffer from acute sinus we asked the front desk staff to change rooms. We were told none were available...they said they would put an ionising In the room for hour an hour when we went for dinner. They denied it was a smoking room, and that smoking was only permitted on the balcony... The room absolutely reeked from smoke. The front desk staff were abrupt and unhelpful and really did not want to hear about our concerns. We had booked for three nights in a suite, so we're somewhat surprised.. The hotel is also in a very run down area of Vancouver, a lot of homeless people and addicts on the streets.

    Stayed on a business trip, my first time. My room was large with a bedroom and TV and a lounge area with TV, desk, couch, balcony etc. View of street below (Granville) which is not a particularly attractive area particularly after dark when the 'night time economy' kicks in. A bit of traffic noise, sirens, shouting into the early hours mostly at weekends. Sex shop opposite and occasional loiterers, not unpleasant just a bit tacky! Staff friendly and helpful, we did not eat here other than breakfast which was from a varied menu. Conference rooms we used on the ground floor rather spoiled by patrons of the bar/restaurant if we overlapped.

Free shuttle buses to local sightseeing places stop outside the hotel, so couldn't be better placed.

There were a lot of homeless people in the area, which makes me quite sad, but nobody bothered us at all. there is a stop for the Capilano suspension bridge shuttle right outside the hotel, and the shuttle is free!!!. i would stay here again, and would recommend it.

    Picked this hotel off Trip Advisor because it had suites. We were not disappointed. The suite was nicely updated and comfortable. The downtown location was very convenient with underground parking for us. The first night we found our refrigerator was not working. Within five minutes a hotel staffer was in our room checking it out, and 10 minutes later the hotel manager himself was changing out our refrigerator because the maintenance guy had already gone home fir the day.

    We (two mature couples) chose this hotel for a 4-night stay in Vancouver and were very happy with our choice. Our rooms (suites) on the 9th floor were spacious, comfortable and quiet. The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. Public transportation (trolleys and buses) going in all different directions was right at the front door, the stops for the on/off sightseeing buses were right there as well as a taxi stand. And, for those who like to go on foot exploring the surroundings - large numbers of restaurants, etc. are within very easy walking distance as well as are lovely residential areas with tree-lined streets and parks. Granville Island with all its attractions is nearby (walk is feasible, but a bit long) as well as the river with its tour boats and water taxis.

    « Pros and cons but mostly pros »

    Our room, more like tiny apartment, had a very comfortable bed and even though the ice machine was just outside our door and a construction site next door, the room was quiet. The view in the living room was of the many skyscrapers, not a bay view but still pretty spectacular. The breakfast which you pay for is huge and delicious. The front desk and concierge and especially the older doorman are all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is centrally located. So what is the "con"? The immediate neighborhood. Lots of panhandlers and a sleazy "entertainment district." We came out one morning to a police wagon that had just loaded a screaming somebody. Since you usually are not in this area very long, it doesn't take much away from the many good aspects of this hotel.

Upon arrival we found the staff to be friendly, professional and efficient in booking us in. We found our room to be clean, quiet , with a great view of the surrounding area . Was tremendously impressed with how helpful the staff were with regard to any of our questions re the surrounding area .... restaurants, grocery etc etc. Although breakfast was not included we did find the EDGE restaurant attached, although a little pricey, (no more, no less than other restaurants nearby) provided great service and good food choices. This applied as well, to supper the evening before. The concierge (Martin) was particularly helpful and accommodating on our day of departure ... added to the quality of this facility. It's close location to the cruise terminal, plus all of the above make this an ideal central location. Would return and would highly recommend this location without hesitation.

    I stayed here over night and enjoyed it. The room was super clean and massive, so plenty of space for luggage etc with all the necessary amenities. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom had plenty of space. The only down side of this hotel is the noise. Obviously it is very central in downtown Vancouver, which is good but its not great for the noise and I also had a balcony because my room was at the front of the building which had a great view but wasn't great for me because of noisy guests on other balconies. Also, the air con unit in the room is a bit noisy. Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you can afford it!

    We got a room for a comedy night at the Orpheum. I wanted a room with a padio and king size bed. This place was a great choice. The padio was so nice in the sun. The room was as expected. Nothing out of the ordinary. It was a quick and simple walk to the venue. We would do it again.

    The staff was excellent. Always helping you and giving key information to make your Vancouver trip was as good as you wanted. They printed bus routes, maps etc.and gave you tips on how to travel and make you save money. WOW! They were all great morning staff and night staff. The hotel is perfectly located central to everything. The rooms were clean, the beds and pillows comfortable, the desk area practical and the living room large. The balcony was nice since we had such lovely weather in Vancouver. There is construction going on a new building right next door, but it did not wake us up in the morning. Maybe there is an agreement as to when they can start making more noise. The room had a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee machine (so you can have breakfast in the room). We wanted to try the restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, but we never did. Wifi was very good and free.

    Hotel is clean and comfortable. Best part is the front desk which always trying to find an answer for you. Never made to feel silly asking questions about the area, eateries, etc..?.. Parking is a bit tight for some spots ? that the way the building is. High praises to the maintenance group with quick response replacing a clock with no back light.

The hotel is clean inside and out, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and well kept, the beds are comfortable and (though we didn't use it this time) the food is great in the restaurant.

    « Vancouver value »

    This was our first trip to Vancouver. We try to stick with the Best Western brand when possible because we accumulate points for free nights. This hotel was located very close to a lot of walkable attractions. We were able to take transit from the airport to a stop within about 6 blocks of the hotel. Staff was VERY friendly. When we had to rebook a bus trip to Whistler, the concierge was more than happy to help us. Most Best Westerns offer a free breakfast, this one did not, so a little bummed by that, but not a deal breaker. I would highly recommend this hotel based on hotel location, room cleanliness and space, very good wifi and great staff.

    Really nice hotel set out on the main street in downtown Vancouver. Little busy all hours of the night so if your a light sleeper this area may not be for you. Very attentive pleasant reception upon arrival. We were put on the top floor 15 over looking the main street. At night the view is breath taking. Looked like a Vegas strip Well lite up and quite beautiful. The room was very clean and a good size. There was a little frig and it kept our drinks nice and cold. A normal bottle of 500 ml water was $3.50 which I thought was rather expensive however right across from the hotel is a store and a few small markets are within walking distance. Beds were super comfy and we had a balcony which was great for picture taking. Highly recommend this great hotel.

    The hotel is in a good spot, close to plenty of restaurants as well as Granville Island itself. Even better is the accessibility to transit meaning you have plenty of options available to get around. Cost isn't excessive, rooms are rather decent. It's a rather good option.

    « Clean and Comfy in an Eclectic Neighbourhood »

    Stayed in suite 903 (2 double beds, separate living room, balcony) with a city view. Room was very comfortable if a little cramped for the two beds and amount of furniture in the living room. Bathroom was super clean and the shower was superb - great water pressure and lots of hot water. The towels were thick and big. The hotel itself is in an interesting neighbourhood on Granville St, in an area that is undergoing a bit of a transformation. One can find great restaurants and bars mixed in with second hand shops, "adult shops", head shops and high end boutiques. So if you like to people watch and like a mosaic of experiences, this is a neat place to stay. It is also close to Robson Street with all its shopping and the downtown core, or a quick taxi ride over the bridge to Granville Island in the opposite direction. The hotel staff were quite friendly. 'Ralph' was at the front desk when we checked in and provided superb, professional, friendly service.

    I was very disappointed with my stay. I came for a convention that I missed most of the Saturday night activities because I was stuck on the 15th floor. I had paid to a Banquet I never attended after waiting 15 minutes for an elevator that never came. I cannot walk up and down on stairs due to a knee injury do I was stuck.

    It was a nicely appointed room, separate living area from the bedroom. The furniture is dated 70's. There was only one chair at the table which could seat two comfortably.

They were ready to help with booking a last minute dog room. ??there is a nice dog park close by.

    This hotel exceeded my expectations. We were expecting a basic hotel room (one room with beds and a TV, bathroom), but it included a separate room with two beds and a TV PLUS a room just for a living area with another TV. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. The hotel is in a prime location for anything touristy you could want to do in Vancouver. The restaurant attached to the hotel was our favorite place for breakfast. We tried a few places in the area and that one was hand down the best. Drew greeted us when we arrived to the hotel and he was our favorite! He helped us find places to watch the hockey game and restaurants to go to. He was all around friendly and was quite funny too.

    we chose this hotel for the location...just a few minutes walk to the venue we were going to in the evening...bonus with this was to park our car at the hotel for duration of stay ( a $20. charge for overnight)..several places to eat at or choose the great food truck that parks down here....parts of the area are a bit seedy - ( there are homeless people hanging out on the sidewalk in the evening ).. just go online ahead of time to check out the area so you know what's there and what's within walking distance..check the public transit times if you want to go further. ..wear your walking shoes and plan your trip from a good central location.. our room was comfortable and clean with the sitting room (the couch and chair were a bit dated) separate from the bedroom ..the beds were fine with decent linen... we never noticed much street noise and the two sets of curtains give you an option of how dark you want the rooms. ( it gets slow down in this part of town in the later evening anyhow)....the staff were efficient, polite and approachable..ps..one of the two elevators was still broken but it was't that bad to deal with..would have liked the stair option though..we'd stay again..

    This hotel is located on South Granville street. Granville street can be quite intimidating to people, with peep shows, street people doing drugs, marijuana shops and other seedy elements of the big city. That being said, this property is close to Yaletown which appears to be the new trendy neighborhood and a light rail station. Plus a Aqua Bus station that goes to the shops of Granville Island. I have never felt threatened on Granville Street, but I probably wouldn't be out at 3:00am either. This hotel was quite clean, comfortable and a pleasure to stay at. Flat screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms were quite nice and the refrigerator, microwave and Keurig machine is something all hotels need to have. Paid parking charges were average for a big city and the onsite restaurant seemed nice although we did not eat there. Lots of dining, entertainment options nearby makes this a convenient location. Balconies overlooking the city are nice to peer out over Vancouver. We definitely enjoyed staying here.

    « Vacouver vacation with kids »

    We stayed in a suite, and we were really happy with the room - it was ample space for my husband, myself and our 3 children, and was very clean. Had a microwave and fridge too. The staff was helpful, and friendly with directions on how to get around the city. This was our first time in Vancouver, and the hotel is situated on Granville (street name) and the section is a little grittier than I would prefer - not that anything happened, just something to be known. Though around the corner headed that direction you head towards Yaletown, which is super nice, so it was only one side of the hotel that was on a not so nice street. Also one of the elevators was broken our entire stay, and it definitely caused longer than normal wait times. You could not take the stairs up to your floor either (only down) because the doors were locked at each floor. Used the gym in the hotel and no one was ever in it which was great for me, and it was super clean. This was the first Best Western I have ever stayed at that didn't offer a continental breakfast (many local breakfast options), but something to keep in mind as well, especially if you are staying with kids. Parking was also an extra cost. The location was great though as far as accessibility to everything.

    « Best Western Chateau Granville »

    We stayed 4-4-16 thru 4-6-16. 3 rooms. Upon arrival their only working elevator quit with people inside it. Their other elevator had been inoperable for many days. We had to use the service elevator until they got the main elevator up and running later that evening. It was very frustrating at times to wait 10 to 15 min for the elevator with kids and an 84 year old mother in law. I felt upon check out we should have been given a small credit to each room for the inconvenience. Wifi is horrible, only one person can use the wifi in a room at a time. (not a good idea when you are offering suites, which draw families or larger parties) Drew was a great bell man, and the front desk friendly. The hotel may want to look into what they can do to have the adult store moved to another part of town. My kids wanted to go there since" a peep show is only .25 cents" thank goodness we aren't uptight parents though we did have to explain .

    Main Elevators out of commission during our stay (should have received some type of credit on our bill ) 3 rooms, 2 days. Rooms ample space for the family to spread out. Wifi is horrible, only one person in the room can be on wifi at a time or it doesn't work. Decent location. Though I encourage management to do all they can to get the adult store across the street to move to another side of town (my kids wanted to know what a peep show was, and could they go since its only .25 cents.(thank god we have a sense of humor!

    « I don't know »

    This is hands down the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in as far as street noise is concerned. Obviously not something the hotel has any control over-and they do offer complimentary earplugs in the room. Thankfully I travel with white noise so my sleep was probably better with that. Based on that alone I probably would not return to this hotel or request a room on the back side of the building. While we were there only one elevator was working and this is a 15 story hotel so you can imagine the wait times if you've got someone going to the garage and someone waiting on the top floor. We were on a high level floor with kids so taking 12 flights of stairs was not an option. I hope this gets fixed soon because it was a huge inconvenience. I thought the price of parking was incredibly inflated. $16/day to park in their own private garage. The wifi situation was not ideal. They have wifi for each room. You enter your rooms passcode and you have wifi while you are in your room. The moment I stepped into the hallway it would disappear and there is no public wifi for the hotel so when I was in the restaurant or in a friends room wifi was not available. This may seem insignificant but when you are traveling internationally and racking up the charges, it leads to a big problem. Several great little restaurants within walking distance and a Starbucks about 400 feet away Overall the hotel was nice, clean, and I thought the staff was welcoming but I do not believe I would be interested in returning as this just does not fit my needs.

    « Friendly, courteous staff. Convenient location. »

    This is our second stay at the Chateau Granville. The last one was four years ago. They have upgraded the rooms including the windows and balcony doors since, significantly reducing the street noise inside. It is conveniently located near on Granville (a straight shot to the airport) near Granville Island, Yaletown and not too far from the Robson district and downtown. There's plenty of good restaurants within a short walk. That being said, there are some 'street people so you might want to opt for a taxi ($5-$10 CAD) later at night or if the weather is inclement. My only complaint would be the fact that there was only one public elevator in service during our visit and they had posted notices that this has been and would be the case for some time. This would have been enough for me to rate them a 3-Star property had it not been for Drew, the Bellman who did everything possible to insure our stay was as pleasant as possible, including offering the service elevator if he noticed a long wait or a queue of more people than could comfortably fit into the next lift.

    « Fantastic room, comfy bed, convenient but.... »

    First spend the extra money and get the superior double queen with balcony. Lots of room, fantastic beds, fridge, microwave and great view if on Granville side. Make sure you get a high floor, 12th was great. 1204 specifically. Downside (all the clubs are on this street, plus side-you can't hear if you keep the windows shut). Taps in sink and shower wonky so be careful you don't freeze or burn. Once you have them set right, don't breath on them or bump them in anyway. Likely need tightening. The weekend we were there one elevator was down, the sign said for a "short" time. 5 days and counting is NOT a short time. Very unhappy people with long waits. All stairway doors locked. Maybe they should have just kept an employee at the service elevator at least at check in/check out time. He could have gone to the top floor and checked for folks and kept working his way down. Or at least be honest and say the elevator is out for a week or more. Just don't lie and say "short". Would have given 5/5 if they had the elevator thing controlled better and tighter taps. Friendly staff though, clean rooms and great access for the Orpheum.

    This hotel is what we were expecting of a BW Plus, good value, clean room, great staff, tasty food in the restaurant. The problem is the terrible neighbourhood. There are peep shows right out the front door, 3 strip clubs on the next block, marijuana shops, tattoo parlours, disgusting streets with excrement and throw up, gum, garbage and homeless. There are ear plugs in the rooms for noise. If you're going for a wild bachelor party, get some piercings, smoke some weed, or want to try the gay thing, this is your spot.

    We had a great stay at this hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable, with great pillows and the room very spacious. The bathroom was clean and the shower good. The view down the granville strip is amazing from the 15th floor with the snow topped mountains in the background. The location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to everywhere without being on top of the noise. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for one aspect of our stay. When we returned back to our room after a day out the door to our room was open. It must have been left that way after house keeping had been in. This was extremely worrying as we left all our valuble skiing equipment as well as I pads, passports and money in our room. Thank fully nothing was missing. We reported this immediately to the reception desk and were met with no apology. However, it wouldn't deter us from staying there again. The breakfast at the edge was lovely.

Sky train from the Airport to YVR city center was 7.50 per person and only 2.50 pp for the return. It took 25mins from YVR to city center.

    I was in Vancouver for the weekend for a conference. I've stayed at this hotel before and as I was coming in by train from the airport thought I would stay here again. It's an easy train ride in and the walk from Yale Town station on a Friday night is right through one of the entertainment districts. It's great if you like people watching and don't have too many bags. My checkin was super easy and my room quite lovely. The bed was great and I fell into it for an undisturbed sleep. I had a friend picking up a package from me and the front desk was only too happy to help coordinate that for me. I love the smell of the shampoo in the rooms. It's really minty or something. Anyway it helps to really wake up the senses in the morning. I'd stay here again.

    « Love the Best Western Chateau Hotel & Suites »

    We were in Vancouver for a show at the Commodore Ballroom which is located just a block & a half from the Chateau. Everything you could need can be found within a short walk from the hotel. Lots of great eateries like The Famous Warehouse, & Carl's Jr.; Liquour/Beer & Wine stores; funky shops; grocery stores; shopping centres; theatres; art galleries; museums; parks; and so much more. The staff at the Chateau are friendly, accomodating, helpful, and knowledgeable about their city. The rooms are clean & spacious & very comfortable. The chateau is our new go-to hotel!!!!

    « Big Rooms! Okay ammeneties »

    Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Chateau Granville Best Western. The rooms were very big and for staying a few nights it was nice having a living space separate from the bedroom. Our shower head drooped down a little and wouldn't stay up which was fine for short me but was an inconvenience for my boyfriend who is 6 feet. I am glad we found a good deal on the room as construction next to the hotel caused quite a bit of noise and also made the view from our balcony less enjoyable. If we had paid full price for the room I may have found that more of an annoyance. Parking was convenient and although not super cheap seemed reasonable for downtown Vancouver. Location was nice, we could walk to many of our destinations. Elevators were a little rough but the building isn't super new so I suppose that could be expected. Our only main complaint it probably about the breakfast at the hotel restaurant Edge. We both ordered over-easy eggs one morning and when we received them they were a little on the under-done side (very runny in the middle... not just the yolk but the white too, and a little cold). At the time we thought nothing of it but we're quite sure that it is what caused my boyfriend's salmonella food poisoning that he came down with that evening. Since they were organic eggs I would suggest ordering them more on the done side to be safe, or enjoy breakfast somewhere else around the hotel which we did a few mornings (I would suggest cafe crepe or YaYas bubble tea). If we stayed in Vancouver again I would probably see if we could find somewhere else, it was okay but full price rooms would be a little much for just a cheap vacation (we booked through Groupon) and the business-style space in the rooms was more than we needed.

    « Amazing hotel, sweet staff »

    We booked a room this weekend and accidentally made a mistake and booked a room with two double beds. We explained this to the front desk attendant and she immediately helped us and upgraded us to a king suite. This hotel is amazing. Chocolates on the bed with a hand written note saying "Have a nice day". Balcony views are amazing! Walking distance to everything. The staff was just so kind and friendly answered all our questions and never hesitated to help us. Very good experience i will go here anytime I am in Vancouver!

    « In the heart of it all »

    Best Western has kept the Grand at their Chateau Granville Hotel & Suites in Vancouver. Fully modernized and stylish, with a helpful staff; this hotel is right on Granville Street amidst the nightlife of Vancouver. With artfully decorated suites/rooms, you'll get a sense of Vancouver's apparent change into a super city. With a parking garage and it's own restaurant and lounge, this Best Western definitely has the PLUS. Reasonably priced rooms paired with the courteous and professional employees make for a nice stay. Within walking distance of the dining district and a short cab ride from Gastown; you won't need a higher priced hotel to get the same experience. A bonus is the higher suites with great views of Vancouver's growing skyline.

    « Excellent all rounder »

    I booked this for its location and reviews. Thought it was very well located and in easy reach for tourist siteseeing in Vancouver. The room was modern, very comfortable and clean and I liked having a balcony. Was on the 15th floor so street noise was not an issue. My only negative wasn't really to do with the hotel as I had a couple in the next room have a very loud argument at 2am as they returned from a night out. The hotel does have a sign in the lobby asking people returning late to keep noise to a minimum but it looks as if this couple didn't pay attention. Had it gone on any longer than it did I would have called reception. Found all the facilities and staff were great and as it was raining during my 3 day stay it was very useful to be able to borrow an umbrella from reception. I had one breakfast at the hotel which was lovely - a huge plateful which I certainly enjoyed but there were cheaper places very nearby. Overall excellent and I would certainly recommend and also stay again if visiting Vancouver

    « Great location, very clean room »

    We stayed at this Best Western on a Friday night. We chose this hotel based on the location, as we were attending a concert at the Commodore Ballroom. It was under 10 minutes to walk there. Granville is a busy street on a Friday night with lots of clubs and concert venues. There are many late night food spots, so you can grab a bite on your way back to the hotel. Our room was very clean, and tidy, with a comfortable bed. It was also quiet. Our room had a balcony which was a nice addition. When we came back to the hotel at around 12:30, we had to be let in by a security guard and our room number verified. We were told this is to eliminate someone staying in the hotel bringing a whole group of non-guest in. I suspect this is due to night-clubs being in the near vicinity. If it keeps the hotel quiet, I'm in! Overall, a nice place to stay that is close to evening entertainment. We would choose this hotel again because of it's cleanliness and because it's quiet.

    « Nice place to stay »

    We stayed here for 7 nights. The hotel is located towards the South end of the "entertainment district". This means there are plenty of bars, night clubs, restaurants, and shops within walking distance. The public bus has a stop about 1 block South so transportation is easy. However, any of the rail stations are a bit of a walk. I suppose I should point out that there is a bit of a homeless issue around the general area (not at the hotel). They will politely ask for money but they are not aggressive. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and professional. The only noise to speak of was the occasional police or fire vehicle. The free wifi was great. Each room has its own passcode; once you leave your room, the wifi will drop off. However, while in the room it was rock steady and fast. I found free wifi to be fairly common around downtown Vancouver.

    « Location, Location, Location »

    The location of this downtown Vancouver Hotel is perfect, out of the hustle and bustle of the down town core, however walking distant to it all. The location of you room is key at this time as there is a new building being constructed next door and the noise from the early morning constructions starts does not start your day well. So ask for a room away from the back alley. And the location of the underground parking entrance is difficult to get to due to the closing of the lane at one end due to this construction. The Edge restaurant attached is marvelous and the cost of restaurant and hotel are affordable .

    The room was quite large and very clean. The wifi was quite strong and had no trouble with connecting. Hotel is a little old and needs upgrading. Not enough power points in the room. Bathroom is a bit tired. Couldn't get the plug in the bath to stay in.

    Chose this hotel as it was given reasonable review by TripAdvisor. I found it to be exactly as what was described on TripAdvisor. The location is convenient but not particularly pleasant as it is near a grubby street. But near enough to nice areas that it is acceptable. Hotel is okay. Service was very good. Cleanliness was very good. Rooms were better than what I expected based on lobby decor. Bed was terrific. All in all an average looking hotel with better than average beds and service.

    We had high expectations of this hotel because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations so much so that we extended our stay for an extra night. They couldn't have been more helpful, from my first call to the hotel to enquire about different room options to the excellent bell service, to the meticulously cleaned room. The bed was very comfortable, the restaurant was excellent, in fact, I can not think of any complaints to mention whatsoever. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for personal travel. Because we were there for a leisure stay, I didn't pay attention to business facilities so can not comment on that aspect.

    I had an outstanding experience staying at the BW Granville location. The room was everything you would expect from a 3-star hotel. You won't be blown away by style, but the hotel and room was very comfortable, well maintained, and clean. It is the service that really sets this location apart. Check-in and out services were provided with great courtesy, speed, and overall professionalism. The concierge was extremely helpful in advising attractions as well as transportation. In addition to the direction he provided, he was very personable and a pleasure to chat with in general. As part of a long multi destination trip I had to do laundry before departing all on my check out day. Since I had a large load of clothes, I chose to go to an off site laundromat. The desk staff were very helpful in allowing me to store my luggage, access it again following the laundromat, store it one more time for lunch, and finally return it for departure. All in all, it was a great experience! Thank you!

We arrived about midnight due to a plane delay from Alaska and left at 9am the following morning so can only reall coment on our room. We stayed in room 1414 on an upper floor which had a very comfortable queen bed and pillows. The room was spacious, clean with lovely decor, we were given ear plugs which we didnt require. The bathroom was compact with a shower in the bath, which had good water pressure, plenty of toiletries were supplied. The only problem being there was long black hair in the bath and on bathroom floor. Overall a pleasant overnight stay.

    « Unexpectedly WOW'ed! »

    After a very last minute decision to drive from Whistler to Vancouver to surprise my bestie for her bday, I booked this property. In my haste, I entered the wrong day (it was a non refundable, no change reservation through Booking.com). After calling Booking.com, they contacted the hotel directly to see if they would change the date, penalty free and they did:) Arriving way before checkin time, I assumed I'd check in, park and wait until the afternoon to have a room. Katie (I hope that is her name, who I think also made the reservation adjustments) was awesome and checked me in with a room! YAY!....That was not the only 'YAY'.....The room was HUGE! A one bedroom with two queens, a mini fridge, 2 TV's, couch, desk etc. I want to note: as a mild OCD person, the remotes are all in little sanitary bags, there are chocolates with hand written welcome notes on then bed (which are super comfortable) and the room/bathroom was very clean! I was able to unwind after a crazy morning and be ready for a nice dinner out. Once we had returned from the celebrations around 10pm the TV in the bedroom wasn't working (nothing like a movie night) :) The Manager on Duty (I was pretty tipsy so can't remember his name) was awesome and came within minutes to fix it. We had an amazing stay! I travel every few weeks to Vancouver and was staying in various properties. I have now found my second home and will not book anywhere else. Thank you BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville Hotel & Suites. Looking forward to the next stay!

    This hotel location gave us easy access to downtown - Robson street, BC Place, Rogers Centre etc. Lots of restaurants to choose from. The hotel suite was great - comfortable and good value. The weekend was a bit noisy being right on Granville , as we were near clubs and bars. Also be prepared for seeing the homeless snuggled in blankets in the nooks along Granville Street. The restaurant "Edge" on site was very good and offered room service Underground guest Parking was about $20 per night taxes included Wi-fi worked good and free computer access in lobby for air flight check in and print.

    A great place to stay, within walking distance of Stanley Park, Granville Island and lots of places to eat. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We did have to ask for our room to be made up 2 days in a row. We usually leave in the morning to go site seeing or shop in order to give the housekeeping staff time to make up the room, then return in late afternoon to get ready for the evening activities or just relax. This was the only thing we had to mention to the front desk. The restaurant was excellent for any meal any time. I would certainly stay here again if I needed to stay in downtown Vancouver.

    « Non Smoking room smelt like an ashtray »

    We booked 3 nights x double non smoking room (bed & breakfast package) for our family of 4 (2AD,2Ch) when we arrived we were told only the adults would be supplied with breakfast. We thought this was strange after travelling through Canada for 3 weeks all other hotels had provided breakfast for 4 when we booked this type of room. When we entered the room the smell of stale smoke was overwhelming, we opened the windows and balcony door but after complaining about the breakfast didn't want to start another fight. So decided to put up with it. During the night we couldn't sleep because of the smell in the linen and the room, we all felt sick and left the following morning and checked into another hotel for the next 2 nights. We asked why they would put guests into a room that smelt so bad and they just shrugged and said they had tried to get rid of the smell. Do yourself a favour do not book this hotel.

    Very good price for a suite with separate bedroom and lounge. A couple if blocks walk to main centre of town and Granville Island. Easy transport in bus. Friendly front desk. A few downsides - decor is dated and tired and Vancouver zoning means sex shop across road. Have to walk by homeless kids dossing down on Granville street to get to town. So location loses out a few marks. Sofa bed is hopeless and needs replacing and beds are double. So 4 people in suite a but tight. Still all in all good value for the price we got.

    The staff members are super rude! We booked the hotel because we wanted to go clubbing and stay only one night in downtown. At 2 am we came back to the hotel, the door was locked! We buzzed and they let us in. The guy at the counter, (James) was super rude, asked us for Id and didnt want to let my friend upstairs because apparently the room was for two people and we had one extra person. I told him that she is just visiting, but he told us that she cant go upstairs because the visiting hours ends at 10. What kind of hotel is this? I asked him well she is going to stay so whats the fee. i can pay. he refused to give us any price saying that the room is a fire hazard room, and he wouldn't let her go up. So i went upstairs with one of my friends and came back to drop my other friend but she came upstairs with me to pick her stuff. James saw us going up freaked out, started calling our room, sent one person upstairs with a walki talki as if he caught criminals. he caused so much drama at 3 am. finally I told the guy who came upstairs that we are under no condition at this point of time to drive her! I asked him to give us 20 min so I can come downstairs and he was like no i cant, i finally went downstairs and explained to James that I am not going to drive so tell me what is the price or give me another room. he finally charged us 20$ more. It is so funny how a fire hazard room can suddenly become a normal room after paying 20$. I have never seen any hotel with stupid rules like this. I always could have visitors coming in without getting harassed. I never write any reviews but this hotel for sure needed this one!

The hotel did provide earplugs which was a nice touch. Large bathroom with lots of counter space, and mini fridge in the room. Staff were very friendly and helpful and there is a taxi stand right outside the hotel so transportation was never an issue. The hotel is in walking distance to the downtown, Gaslight, Davie Village, and Yaletown areas. There are a mix of properties and derelict buildings on the street, but that seems pretty on par for what we saw in Vancouver. Perfectly safe walking around at night.

    Stayed here for only one night while downtown for a concert. Perfect location as we could walk to Rogers before and after the concert. If saved time waiting for cabs and we could get to the pub after the show nice and quick. It was perfectly located right in the heart of all the action. Walk right down Granville for tons of restaurants choices and cool places to hang out. The room we had was the one bedroom suite. It was nice to have a fridge and living room area to hang out in for a drink before the show with friends. It is always more comfortable to have this type of space instead of having a beer on your bed! The beds were small, 2 doubles I think, which was not really what a couple wants in their room but it was just fine. A little harder mattress than what I normally like but all in all a good night sleep anyways. I would definitely stay here again when going downtown. Highly recommend it for a quick weekend getaway.

    The BW Chauteau Granville has central location, reasonable prices, great restaurant. Secure underground parking. Suites are very spacious and comfortable but slightly dated decor. Tub very slippery. Every amenity works well, extremely clean. Corner suite 701 next to elevator is really quiet with good views. Friendly staff. Terrific restaurant with many locals.

    Stayed here in town for a hockey game. Great location, in the heart of a great area downtown, surrounded by plenty of things to do, see and eat. Hotel is immaculate from top to bottom. Room and bed were very comfortable. Plenty of included amenities: free wifi in room as well as common areas, 24 hour gym, fridge in room, balcony with great view of the city. Very inexpensive considering the amenities and cleanliness. Staff was extremely courteous, specifically Drew, the friendliest, most helpful concierge I've ever met. This is the only place i will ever stay in Vancouver.

    We stayed at the Chateau Granville for a nice weekend when my husband came back to BC from England. It was nice to relax after a long trip and a long workday for me. We were very happy with the service from the front desk staff to the bellhops to the concierge.We had a breakfast package that also included parking. The meals were very good, We were pleasantly surprised to have a microwave, fridge and coffeemaker in the room as well. The room was well furnished, the TV was easy to use, there was a good sized porch as well. Another nice little extra was complimentary earplugs for light sleepers! Well done!

    « ECO »

    Your rooms and service were exemplary. The design and layout were superb. I especially thought your balcony entrances definately above and beyond. You seem to have met all your ECO systems. I find it hard to believe that under your current guidelines that YOU have not replaced your water closets!! If you went to say a TOTO or equivalent toilet you cou7ld not only raise the height of the toilet but but cut your water consumption from about 20L to 6L and even more if you purchased the dual flush model which only uses 3L on a PEE flush. I'M not sure how many Toilets you have but I am sure would make a substantial difference. The other concern is that if you installed soap and shampoo devices to the shower wall it would save greatly to the amount of discarded soap and or shampoo and wrappers . Thankyou for your attention to this comment and I hope it will make your establishment even more cost and ECO friendly. Thanks, Robert Rowland [email protected]

    Best Western Plus Chateau Granville is about 3 blocks from Robson Street, which is the main shopping district in Vancouver. Although the hotel seem to be not in a great neighborhood, I found many different ethnic restaurants around the hotel. The French bakery and café is one of my favorites - the owner is very friendly and nice and it is located just around the corner of the hotel. The room we had was on the 7th floor, but it had nice views, very spacious and clean. The bedding was very nice and comfortable as well. Front desk/concierge was very helpful with maps and directions as well as suggestions of restaurants.

    I came to Vancouver for a weekend of hockey and stayed at the Best Western Chateau Granville for the second time. Rooms are affordable and great for single travelers. My room was comfortable and I slept well even with the weekend party scene down on the street below. If noise bothers you, ask for a higher floor. The hotel is on or close to all public transit which makes touring around Vancouver that much simpler. Less than 30 min to airport. For LGBT travelers, the hotel is a few blocks from Davie Village. I will stay here again on my next trip to Vancouver.

    « A darkhorse but good place »

    This place tends to be considered kind of a middling hotel, but I think that is inaccurate and doesn't do the place justice ..most of the rooms are suites, with separate bedrooms, which is great , lots of space. But best part grest staff and service, and little things like overlapping curtains so you can have total blackout, something most hotels don't do...also all rooms have balconies and you an smoke on them if you are a smoker this is very convenient .. tends to have a lot of young people because of room size and very reasonable prices, but don't let that deter you, because it is a concrete building the rooms are very quiet. I stay here a lot and have many occasions where there are 2-3 people in next room and I have never heard them. A good choice to stay in Van in my opinion

    « Good choice in Vancouver »

    The Hotel was very nice, close to down town Vancouver. We were also lucky to have experienced the rare lovely weather there. The room itself was clean and equipped with a King bed. At the 11th floor we had a wonderful view. We can also highly recommend the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. But just letting those know who are used to European portions beware as these are definitely North American sized portions, delicious but big. The only thing that could have been a bit better was the reception; We missed the good mornings or good nights when walking past the reception desk.

    « Hot wire deal »

    Booked with hot wire and got a great deal for two nights, which was about half of what I would have paid otherwise. I got a suite which was amazing. I loved having two rooms to myself. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the lack of cctv (or security) in the corridors made it a bit scary for a solo female traveller. It was also very noisy on the Saturday night, with one room either having friends over or partying in the early morning hours. But a call to reception fixed that. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who called! The area wasn't the greatest, but since I didn't plan on going out at night, I wasn't worried. View from my room was fantastic!

    We had a 1 bedroom suite so it accommodated 5 of us quite well, including 3 teens. It was value for money. Athough it was on Granville St where most shopping are, the hotel is situated quite far up so it takes about 10-15 min walk up. But it was manageable for the rate we paid. There's a balcony in the room so we got 1 that overlooks Granville St, which was good. However, we were displeased by the fact that after a 15 hr flight, the hotel didn't have our room ready till almost 3pm. We were 5 very tired bodies spread about in the lobby for almost 2 hours. Can't say the staff were sympathetic towards us, who were seated in clear sight of their Front Desk Reception.

I had expected 2 double beds &, as I was on my own, that was fine. I had not realized, however, that it was to be a one bedroom suite. Living room could easily accommodate a 1/2 dozen and there was an outdoor balcony. There were closets in 2 rooms, lots of drawers, 2 TV's, 3 phones. Staff was very pleasant, always asking about my stay and could they do anything for me. I felt valued and appreciated for staying there.

    I stayed here four nights and was very happy I did. The recently renovated room on the 14th floor was great. The balcony was a nice bonus, but it was really the finishings inside that I appreciated. The toilet had a remote (!) to work the heated seat, bidet, and dryer. The rain shower head from the ceiling didn't have much flow, but I really didn't need it. Some commentators have said that this is a rough part of town.I think that it depends on what your comparing it to. There are a few clubs on Granville that get dodgy after midnight, but you can simply walk a block or two further and it's great. I'd recommend it to nearly every one.

    « Very good value for Downtown Van »

    Location is great - easy walking to Yaletown, the Canada Line and the waterfront. The room we had was large, with a balcony and large windows to enjoy the skyline. This is an older hotel but seems to have been upgraded recently (new carpets, lights and furnishings) and very comfortable. On-site restaurant was very good for breakfast - quick service, good food and reasonably priced. The area during the day is fine but does take on a different vibe at night because it is close to clubs and bars. Can be a bit noisy on the street at closing time.

    « Aging facility in a rough part of town »

    I really like to write wonderful reviews, but in this case, I can only say that the staff was very helpful in providing guidance on attractions, a great restaurant nearby (The Fish Shack), directions to get to each of these places, and printing my boarding pass. However, the facility is older, there was a distinct lingering disinfectant smell in my room, and I could hear sirens going throughout the night. I suspect that the reason for that was that this hotel is located in the "entertainment district", code, I suspect, for the red light district. Diagonally across the street there were triple X's in red on a building marquee, there were many vacant, boarded up buildings along Granville, homeless people were everywhere, and it appeared as though there were working girls making their ways through all of this. Police were often evident throughout the area. Despite their presence, as a single woman, I felt very unsafe, and was relieved that a great restaurant was just a half block away, although it seemed to be much farther than that as I was sprinting down there. Although the kindness and helpfulness of the staff were wonderful, I would not recommend this hotel for unattached women or families with children.

    « Mostly all pros »

    We just spent 3 nights here pre-cruise Sept 24-27. We arrived at almost 11pm on a rainy Thursday evening and our check-in was super-quick and easy. It was just my husband and I, we had reserved through Expedia, and we were given a room with two double beds on the third floor. The bathroom was handicapped (we did not request this) but this was fine. When they say suites they mean suites ~ you have a completely separate bedroom where you can sleep and shut the door while the other person has an office area, couch and chair, and the bathroom is also in this other area. Very nice setup for people who may be on separate schedules or have kids or couples like us ~ I wake-up early and my husband sleeps-in. We had a balcony facing the street and there was also a window in the bedroom and in the living room that opened for fresh air. Also, we had called ahead and asked if there were smoking rooms available and they said no however, they do have a small area in front of the hotel where smokers can go plus you may smoke on your balcony as long as you keep your windows shut and you do not throw your cigarette butts out there. My husband was very pleased with this information. So ~ first impression is a nice hotel with a great room and a full-on view of a sex shop across the street. What kind of sketchy area are we in, we thought? Well, we would soon learn we were in a perfect area and there are no problems here whatsoever. At 11pm at night we walked across the street to the little Granville Street Grocery store (a few seconds away - we could see it from our room) and got some sodas and sandwiches as we had not been able to eat earlier due to flight delays/changes. What we learned over the next couple of days was if you walk out in front of the hotel and turn left and go up one block then make a right (onto Davies Street), you are less than a 5 minute walk away from tons of restaurants, several Starbucks, grocery stores, fresh produce markets, stores selling t-shirts, a community garden, etc. The location of this hotel was perfect for us as it is also a designated stop for the Capilano Suspension Bridge shuttle which we took to Capilano and back, no problem. (I highly recommend you do this, btw). The Wi-Fi in the room was free and worked perfectly. This hotel practices "green" measures and so we requested no maid service while we were there but the maid did check with us each day to see if we wanted or needed anything and she was an incredibly kind lady. We had one breakfast and one dinner in the hotel restaurant/bar ~ The Edge. The breakfast was very hearty and delicious. Our waitress was quick and pleasant. We had a beer one evening during happy hour and also excellent service. Our dinner was again good and we had a great server who was again very nice. All around fantastic service here but please note they do close at 10pm. They have specials every evening during happy hour which is 4pm to 7pm. Cannot say enough nice things about the service in this hotel - morning to night - excellent staff all day. We also walked just about five minutes away to Pho Central (again on Davies Street) and had some very good and extremely large portions of Vietnamese food one evening. The front desk and concierge were always helpful with instructions or answering questions. We were even given discount tickets to Capilano Suspension Bridge. A taxi to Granville Island was less than $10, both ways. A taxi to the cruise port was less than $10. Our taxi from the airport was set at $31 and it was a quick ride. Everything about our stay was pleasant and we would most certainly stay here again. The one big con of the stay came after we checked-out (there are many more pros I could write about) but it is something that still irks me and had I accessed Internet that day their rating would be a one not the four I've giving them today: On the day of our cruise we checked-out around 10:30am. Around 3pm that afternoon we realized we may have left something rather valuable and personal to us in our room (a small blue/teal makeup-like bag that held the valuable contents). I searched everywhere in our cruise cabin for this small bag and the last place I remember leaving it was on the desk in the hotel room. I called the hotel from the ship around 3:00pm and they told me they would check with housekeeping and then disconnected the call (this was a male voice). The Holland America representative then called the hotel for me and I was given a female who told me they had rang housekeeping but no one was answering and it might not be today until they knew - she was obviously busy and very annoyed by my request to please check today. When I explained to her that this bag held some valuable and personal items she could have cared less (I was almost in tears on the inside). She was quite snarky and said to me "What time is your ship leaving?" and when I replied "4pm" she replied "Well, are you going to come pick-up the bag today?" Well, no, I can't but I want to know if you have it or not. She then said there was no way to find out that same day whether or not they had the bag. I asked if she could check with lost and found and she said housekeeping handles all the lost and found. I asked if I could call back in an hour and again she said it would be the next day until they knew anything. She then took my cell phone number and said she would leave me a voicemail. I explained I would be in port the next day and would check my voicemail at that time to see if they had found the item or not. She was incorrigible, she wanted me off the phone, and she was very rude while I was heartbroken at losing the contents of this bag. I went back to my cruise cabin completely devastated. I never received a follow-up call from the hotel or a voicemail about the bag. They had my name, my phone number, and all of my information but never followed-up. Luckily, we had locked this bag in our safe in the cruise cabin and forgot.... but what if we had not? The way this was handled was the only sour note to our entire three-day stay.

    We stayed Friday thru Monday evenings. The noise level in our room on the 10th floor kept us awake both Friday and Saturday nights. Room was nice but the lobby had this weird smell every time you walked in from the outside. Too noisy!!
