I surprised my wife with a staycation at the Shangri-la for some much needed R&R. One of the reasons I chose the Shangri-la is because according to their website, all rooms have a deep soaker tub. This is perfect since she loves a nice hot bath to decompress. After finding the check-in area (it's on the lower level for some...

Very nice hotel in one of the nicest areas in Vancouver. You can walk from there to the Marina and Stanley park. The rooms were perfect, incredibly clean; everything impeccable. There is a restautant/bar called MARKET by Jean Georges (very famous chef) that was amazing, great terrace to enjoy the view.

The staff was amazing!!! Including the valet running up the ramp and a quarter of a mile down the street carting our forgotten bicycle wheel. Wow!!!!! The food, spa and room were outstanding. We will be back!!!

Wish we had stayed more than 1 night there. This has been, by far, one of my favorite hotel stays. From the moment you walk into the hotel to the moment you leave, the staff there cannot do enough for you. We drove into Vancouver, so be aware that the parking and reception area is on the Alberini Street side....

VERY nice and quiet "boutique" hotel. Very well appointed room (1407) with one small balcony accesible from the bedroom and one small balcony accessible from the bathroom. Very good service. Only bringing down luggage for departure took a little too long although arranged for in advance. Very good a la carte breakfast. Only two agents at the quite small (underground)...

The Shangri-La experience is worth your stay. First class service and amenities. Great location in the heart of downtown. Fabulous retail and restaurants nearby. The room was exceptional and the staff were diligent and respectful. The Chi Spa was excellent, as well.

Everything about our stay at the Shangri La was exceptional. 5 star service and hospitality. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Gorgeous bathroom with all marble floors and walls. Breakfast was lovely. Our only issue was finding the reception as we got lost not knowing the lobby and parking is underground. This has become our favourite hotel in Vancouver....

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
