“Good value hotel with large rooms and a view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

My wife and I stayed here recently and enjoyed the spacious room and view to the north (we were about 2/3 the way up the hotel). The room was comfortable with room-darkening curtains and a good bed. There was a heavy wind the night we were there so you could hear the wind whistling outside for awhile but this was not a big deal and we had a good sleep. This hotel also has many floors so getting a room with a view (west and north sides preferred) or up higher to provide more quietness is a bonus. The location is reasonable but stiill a few hundred metres from Georgia, if you are walking. We have stayed in fancier hotels but also paid a lot more money for those. Based on the price we paid, overall we felt we got good value for our stay and would not hesitate to return another time.

Four visits to Century Plaza in the past few months for medical appointments at St Paul's Hospital next door. All hotel staff wonderfully friendly and helpfull.

Room very good and clean. BUT, on EVERY VISIT, the room was either too hot or too cold. On our last visit in room 2908 it was difficult to sleep because of the heat, even with the windows open. Again, staff very understanding, but obviously embarrassed. It is now clear to me that the only way to control the temperature is for a staff member to manually turn ON or OFF the water heat in the room.

I do like the hotel, staff, and it's location.

Upon asking at the front desk, I was upgraded to a spacious 30th floor room with an amazing view. The owners are local, do extensive charity work and the staff speak highly of them. These are important qualities! Paul at Absolute Spa gives AMAZING therapeutic massages.

While frequently in Vancouver, and have enjoyed many great hotels there, I had somehow forgotten what a great location the Century Plaza enjoys-so easy to get to everything downtown. The upgrades to all areas of the property in recent years are fabulus, and only topped by the excellence of the staff. Every member of this hotel staff seemed to be only concerned with making my stay awesome.. and it was. The lounge had a great selection to choose from, the restaurant food and service was excellent. An value for money... hard to beat!

Room Tip: Higher floors have excellent views, and are a bit quieter!

This hotel is perfectly located and the staff is very helpful in planning excursions and getting around town. The front desk staff went out of their way to assist in transportation/tour preparation which allowed us to get the most out of our very short stay in Vancouver. Would recommend this hotel!

The Century Plaza Hotel is right next door to St Paul's Hospital in downtown Vancouver. As we live on the Sunshine Coast, a ferry ride away from the city, we stayed in the Century Plaza Hotel post surgery until it was safe to go home and I could manage to trip. This hotel offers special rates for post hospital stays or families needing to be close to loved ones in hospital. The room was huge. It was very comfortable and clean, with a full kitchen, table and chairs and sofa as well as two queen beds. The staff were helpful in every way, never failing to ask how I was doing. Great coffee shop on the main level. Spectacular city, mountain or ocean views from any almost any room.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up will have better views. We were on the 24th floor.

The hotel is located in the centre of things and rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are comfortable. From the time we arrived to the entrance of the hotel we received a friendly greeting from Miles who helped us with our bags, directed us to the front desk and took our bags to our rooms.
I wasn't happy with my room and they changed it right away without question. The view from the room was gorgeous.
The whole staff were friendly and helpful from suggesting places to visit to directing us around the city.
The spa was very nice and we got a good massage.
We really enjoyed the service and the hotel. The atmosphere was so lovely that I would return at the first opportunity.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the noise from the wind on the higher levels choose the corner rooms for the g...
