The room smelled like something had died inside of it. The first night we were there, around 2am, we heard a gurgelling from the bathroom and went inside to see blue stuff coming up from the train. It came up and filled about half the bathtub before draining down. I called the hotel twice from the phone in the room...

I had a very good experience staying at the Howard Johnson in downtown Vancouver. I stayed there after arriving late on an international flight to the Vancouver Airport. I was pleased to arrive at the hotel to a pleasant staff member, who was very friendly and helpful. The room was good, the bed very comfortable and the location was close...

I booked this hotel for a solo trip and I ended up having a friend join me as well. They had no problems changing my reservation to add a second bed. The location was great, quite close to the metro, and many great places to eat nearby. The room was tiny but well equipped, with a bigger closet, coffee maker,...

The location of the hotel is right downtown, and it is great for someone who wants to visit Vancouver. The hotel is also very close to car rental shops (such as Herts), restaurants and shops. It has a private parking, but you need to reserve on time because space is limited. People at the reception are particularly rude and unhelpful....

Rooms are clean and tidy, Lucia the general manager and her front desk team are fantastic! Offering great services, very helpful and always happy to give...

Easy check in and check out, pleasant people working at the front desk. Room was small, but super clean. Parking cost $ 22 but it was worth it. Relatively quiet, they are in downtown after all, so can not expect the same noise level as at home in suburbs. Overall great experience, will be back again.

The key cards they give you to unlock your room are extremely sensitive to metal, cellphone airwaves and who knows what else. Four out of five times, I would come back to the hotel to find that my keycard no longer worked and needed to be re-magnetized. This isn't a big deal since the reception staff will happily reset your...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
