I usually don't write a review for my hotel stay, but would love to leave a comment on this hotel. This is a five start hotel that has exquisite oriental spirit along with excellently maintained rooms and other facilities. When talking about the quality of service, merely "friendly" staffs are not good enough in five star hotels or above, in...

I stayed a few days at the Shangri-La and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility, gorgeous decor, excellent service and wonderful dishes, what a treat! The room was delightful, and I appreciated all the little attentions: Occitane bath products, complimentary chocolate and a great coffee machine. While the menu is quite extensive and offers vegan and gluten-free options, it would have been...

We ended up at the shangri-la on a recent late winter getaway to Vancouver. The rooms were affordable and I booked through Amtrak. Normally I book direct. We got off to a little rough start because they had just installed new carpets and I was impacted by the indoor air quality. The front desk took us to several rooms to...

My wife and I celebrated my birthday in a lovely suite at the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Vancouver. If you are in the "industry," and need a discreet, unobtrusive, luxury accommodation while filming in Vancouver, the Shangri-La Hotel is perfect. The entrance is off a side street, down a ramp, to an understated front. A bellman mysteriously shows up to...

In Vancouver, I wouldn't stay anywhere but this hotel. I travel often to this city and have stayed in most of the upper-tier hotels here.

From the moment I arrived (via the private & very swanky entrance), I felt completely at ease. I had just packed my bags and decided to move from Toronto to Vancouver.

It's just first-rate hotel, a place where everyone seems eager to make your stay a good one--good enough to stay there again. It's located in the heart of downtown, an easy walk to places like Gastown.

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.
