Excellent Walkability

Not only was the hotel an awesome place to stay, the walkability is superb too. We literally parked the car and walked everywhere. The hotel limousine took us to dinner at Espana (great tapas) and we walked back after an excellent meal.

nice bed but curb appeal was terrible

The bed was great, and the bathroom nice, big, clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. But the entry was in the basement, and the lobby on the first floor-- so NO curb appeal AT ALL. The lobby was small and had out dated weird candelabras. The room was tiny. All in all, disappointing for a Shangri-La hotel!!!

Luxury in Vancouver

We stayed at the Shangri-la following the RSVP bike ride from Seattle to Vancouver. It was fantastic. We went straight to the pool and hot tub, and enjoyed the steam room and sauna. Quiet private rooms. Concierge recommended delicious sushi around the corner. Great location. Best place I've ever stayed in Vancouver.

The best in Vancouver

The staff was great. They went out of there way to help us in any way. We were going to a concert the first night and asked for a cab. They provided us a ride with the hotel mercedes just as a treat. Great guys. The beds and pillows and comforter were out of this world. The food in the dining area was really great. Having the Urban Fare so close was a plus because our family lives in the residence part of the Hotel. All in All the Hotel was a fabulous place to stay

Great location, nice hotel, constructive criticism

Located a short walk from the business district, restaurants and cafes, I enjoy the Shangri La. The rooms are typically nice, but I've had some issues that I believe could have been handled better had the staff been more proactive. In my opinion, it's a four star hotel with three star service.
