Date of stay: August 2015Trip type: Travelled as a couple
My husband and I recently spent 2 nights prior to a cruise to Alaska at the Blue Horizon. Our room was located on the 10th floor with a wonderful view of the city, especially at night with the lights. We could see a bit of the inner harbor and Grouse Mtn. The room was huge,spotless,nicely decorated and as all rooms are corner rooms, it had large windows on two sides. While out on the balcony we noticed the outside of the hotel is covered in tiny mosaic tiles of various blue shades,really a work of art. There is a small but pleasant indoor pool and Spa along with a few exercise machines. Although we did not eat in the restaurant in the hotel,we had breakfast both days in a little place just across the street . We were able to walk easily to Stanley Park,Canada Place ,English Bay,False Creek and catch a ferry over to Granville Island. So, the Blue Horizon is in a great spot. We also caught the fast train in from the airport to the City Centre station and walked to the hotel, about a 10 minute walk. If we find ourselves in Vancouver again we would definitely stay in the Blue Horizon. We had stayed there some 26 years ago and I always wanted to return to the hotel.
Room Tip: I would request 9th floor or higher for the view.
