Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.

We were disappointed that we had to move rooms because of full occupancy but we got to experience both a single and the wonderful double queen room we had. Both were much more than adequate. The linen was new and lovely. The beds and pillows are just great, so comfortable.

We stayed at Kingston Hotel, to see a show at the Commodore. It was maybe a 4 minute walk, so, super convenient. It has a pub on the street level floor which was handy for before the show meet up. The room is on the small side, but it was perfect for what we needed it

This was the perfect place to stay for my short trip to Vancouver. Super friendly stuff, convenient location and connected to a fun pub. It’s not brand new, but still well kept and clean. More of a dorm style hotel rather than an actual hotel- would stay here again!!

I'm sorry I have only just seen this question. Yes, parking was available (for an extra charge). It was in a modern building right nearby. You need ask them to organise it

The rooms I've stayed in both times I was there were the same. They are small rooms but ample for one person. There is the bed, desk and chair. There is a mirror and a sink in room. The shared bathrooms are just down the hall plus there are some on other floors. I never had a time I had to wait. I personally was never bothered by construction noise. It is an older hotel so no air conditioning but there is a fan and the window does open. It was fine for me and I was there in August. There are many little alcoves with comfy chairs around the place if you want to sit and read. Staff are extremely helpful. My room didn't have a tv. Not sure what the bigger rooms are like. It is so central to everything. The morning continental is adequate. Toast or bagel, juice, coffee, tea. Not sure what else. I hope this helps.

So far as I can recall this hotel doesn't offer a shuttle service, but taxis pass its door, it is handy for a train station (Granville) and numerous buses.

Is there an aiport shuttle?
I am not sure, we hired a taxi. It cost about $30 from the airport to the hotel. You should call the hotel. They are very helpful and friendly.
