I like beer and lunch and everything goes together here. There is a huge variety and it's right downtown so you can shop after. There are many things on the grill or just grilled chicken and salad, fish, appetizers etc. There is something for kids and large or small appetites.

My wife and I went there for a late evening dinner. Menu looked good but the food was not good at all. The tastes were weird and not good. The salmon was way over-cooked.

Staying across the street, we had to sample the Kingston. We went in on a rainy, quiet afternoon and enjoyed a pint and tea. Very comfortable. We returned that evening for a supper, and had another pleasant experience. Wonderful spinach salad and an acceptable chicken club sandwich were my choices. My wife enjoyed a large Caesar salad with grilled chicken... More

We booked into the Kingston as there were no other hotel rooms available near the concert venue we were attending. Had a choice of a room with sharing a hallway bathroom or having a bathroom inside the room, so we selected a room that had a bathroom. Our room was next to the shared bathroom, so we had quite a...

The Kingston is a little bit of old Vancouver with a warm atmosphere and pleasant staff. The food is basic west coast cuisine. I would recommend either lunch or dinner at the restaurant.

Staying in Downtown

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.
