Great value and exceptional convenience in downtown's business district

The Days In -- Vancouver Downtown offers modern comforts and easy access to tourist attractions and the business and financial districts at a great value. The central location means that world-class shopping, restaurants, and entertainment are only blocks away. Likewise, business travelers appreciate being at the heart of the financial distract and the close proximity of the Vancouver Convention Centre. Attractions and venues too far for a casual stroll can often be accessed by Canada Line's speedy skytrain, comprehensive bus system or seabus.

Highlights
  • Excellent location in Vancouver's business district
  • One block from American consulate
  • Complimentary high-speed Internet access
Location

Only one block from the American consulate, and minutes from the Vancouver Convention Centre, this is a great location for business travelers. Leisure travelers enjoy the convenience and proximity to cosmopolitan boutiques, exciting tourist attractions, and world-class dining. Walk to many of them, or jump on the skytrain to get around the city fast. Stanley Park, English Bay, Canada Place, and even Capilano Suspension Bridge are all easy destinations.

Rooms

Warmly decorated one-bedroom suites and guest rooms offer modern amenities to keep guests connected, entertained and comfortable. High-quality bath products and complimentary bottled water are just two of the nice touches guests will find during their stay. Enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet access and flat-screen televisions in all rooms.

Features

On-site Chelsea Restaurant is the perfect place for a quiet breakfast or lunch, and the accompanying Lounge or Smileys Public House are both great for unwinding at the end of the day. Corporate travelers can ask about complimentary room upgrades, shuttle drop off, and breakfast vouchers.

Rooms were super clean. The bed was so comfy, staff gave us extra coffee pods with no charge, and when we checked out we received a dark chocolate squirrel as a thank-you. Can't go wrong with chocolate right!

European style sensible, Canadian style pleasant

I was in Vancouver BC to attend an engrossing technical conference for6 days *SIGGRAPH), and I did not need much more than a pleasant simple clean place nearby in a safe area, a place to sleep well at night and prepare well for the next day. This charming little 100 year -old 8-story hotel, recently updated, nicely maintained, staffed with exceptionally attentive, astute and courteous people, was absolutely perfect for me, traveling alone. My room was sensibly compact and reminded me of favorite old European hotel modernizations. Room sizes in older hotels were smaller for very good reasons (heating, cooling, airflow, water pumping and plumbing costs before availability of cheap electrical power) offered elegant pleasing interiors without gigantic sizes, kept walking distances short without elevators (this hotel has both: modern elevator AND a central fast staircase, which I preferred even for my 7th floor room). Even now, the hotel keeps rooms individually cooled/heated (giving you complete control: modern quiet but powerful thru-wall air handling unit) , and hallways unconditioned (thus a bit hot in summer due to good insulation, many incandescent lights and low airflow: CFL replacements might cool the halls and would cut electrical costs). Charming understated room decoration and design did not mistake size for comfort: I had everything I wanted and needed thoughtfully available within a few steps, and my needs have never included a tiled echoing bathroom large enough to host an impromptu racquetball tournament with 5 neighbors ( as in my most recent "modern luxury" hotel stay, with towel rods> 5 meters from the shower door!). While notably smaller than most 'modern' hotel rooms, it was cosy rather than cramped for me, and certainly enough for any solo traveler or couple that travels lightly. A good queen-sized bed, a desk; small refridgerator, ready-to-use tea / coffeemaker, modest closet with a safe, chest of drawers, comfortable chairs, large wall mounted flatscreen TV, free and quite speedy wireless internet service everywhere, small and but complete bathroom with shower, sink, mirror and toilet (no bathtub). Well,ok, the bathroom needed more counterspace, or perhaps a shelf near the wasbasin for my toothbrush, comb, sunscreen cream, dental floss, mouthwash; etc., but the early 1900's floorplan probably lacked private bathrooms--remodelers made very good use of the small space available. The hotel is only a few short blocks from the convention center, has a nice little restaurant in the basement good for a tasty and filling breakfast, is surrounded by skyscrapers and by some of the nicest parts of downtown Vancouver. I walked 3 blocks to the Granville train station that took me to and from the airport, and to almost anywhere else. The hotel is'just right' for me: elegant, charmingly tasteful and upscale, but without pointless luxury and showy wastefulness. Wonderful location, wonderful staff, and bargain priced, especially considering the superb service, location, design and finishing touches.

Very good location

We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient. The room was clean. Just a minor house keeping point is that one day, the house keepers forgot to leave coffee cups in our room.

Great Location

While the hotel is in a great location, the standard room has poor ancient lighting so feels constrained (and my 4th floor room's window opened to a concrete building just a few feet away). The rooms also comes with the traditional AC/heater unit by the window so it's noisy and unfortunately ours didn't work. The hotel staff were great overall and offered to credit us for the trouble with the AC but unfortunately couldn't without going through this travel site first. That's a hassle so I'd recommend booking directly with the hotel in the future. Overall, if you're looking for a great location and good value and won't be in your room except to sleep (i.e., you don't mind a basic/anything-but-high-end room), it's a good choice.

De Dutch is just a few blocks away and is a great breakfast spot on the water where you can watch float planes and boats come and go.

Close to Convention Centre

If you are looking for a hotel close to the Convention Center this hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the Convention Centre. It's also a short walk from the Canada Line, the subway line that comes directly from the Airport.

Great One night stay

Stayed here for a last minute one night stay. They didn't have a working order elevator which was awful walking up to the 7th floor. But overall I was happy with our last minute booking.
