“Fantastic Rooms and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

This is a great hotel. The service was incredible and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was fantastic, the bed comfortable, the bathroom huge with great walk-in shower, large soaker tub and double vanity. Even had a very large deck. Great location with restaurants and shopping nearby. Didn't try the restaurant but have heard very good things about it. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here while attending a conference. It was lovely all around. Warm greetings by staff. Quiet, but in the middle of downtown. Very comfortable bed, great city view (we had a corner unit with a balcony). Simple, but well done decor. So much nicer than the "big box" hotels. No long elevator waits.

Loved the complementary water each night...and bookmarks, too.

My only complaint would be fixing coffee proved a challenge because using the key to power the coffeemaker had to be done numerous times to get two cups of coffee. It became my personal adventure each morning and we laughed at process. Gosh, we must have been really relaxed!!!

Room Tip: 15th floor has little city noise and a corner suite with balcony is a nice way to see the view from...

I loved this property. Excellent service with very fast check in. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The complimentary fruit is a nice tough. I quite enjoyed the breakfast in the hotel. Great location, very close to Robson street and lots of shopping. I would definately stay here again

Even though you're steps away from great restaurants and shopping, when you enter the lobby of the Shangri-La you're in a different world. Staff members were truly concerned with your well-being and always had your best interests in mind. I've traveled a great deal, both domestically and internationally, the Shangri-La is by far the best hotel I've stayed at - amenties were outstanding and the lobby lounge served the best martini I'd ever had! It will be my hotel of choice whenever I visit Vancouver...

From the moment I entered the parkade to the spa...it was an amazing experience! The Spa was incrediable. If anyone ever has the pleasure of going to Chi Spa please make sure you ask for Roya...she will ensure your experience is unfortgettable!

What a peaceful, clean, elegant hotel. The staff is eager to please, always kind and friendly. It is located in the heart of the downtown core. Shops and restaurants just steps away. A gourmet supermarket named Urban Fare is just beside the hotel. I frequently visit Vancouver for business and pleasure. I will definitely be staying at the Shangr-La in the future!

The Shang is an amazing hotel, both esthetically and in service. The staff were so warm and welcoming, not to mention respectful and accommodating. The service offered here truly makes you feel like a celebrity. I have nothing but the highest praises for the Shangri-La!
