Great value, great staff, great location

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Great staff, great location, great value.
Cons: Just a few minor touch ups here and there. Better wifi.
Location: Terrific location in the heart of the city. Close to great restaurants, shopping, Stanley Park, Coal Harbor, and transportation options.
We had another terrific stay at the Greenbrier Hotel. The staff is always friendly, helpful, and professional. The accommodations are not 5-star quality, but you really can't beat the value and location. The room was large and comfortable, and we appreciated the convenience of the kitchenette. Housekeeping kept us well stocked with clean towels and kitchen implements. I highly recommend the Greenbrier Hotel to travelers looking for a great stay in the heart of downtown.

Affordable, Great Location, Friendly Staff

Posted Feb 9, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, prompt service, clean large room, wi-fi, coffee in lobby lounge in morning, had everything I had hoped for.
Cons: Wi-fi was a bit spotty, but nothing debilitating. Other than that, excellent.
Location: Excellent location, located central to nearly everything. Walkable to Stanley Park, Coal Harbour, Robson, Downtown, plenty of restaurants.
I needed a place to stay while visiting Canada for an entire week while I sorted out business in Vancouver. I needed a place that was affordable, clean, accommodating. The Greenbrier met all these expectations and more. I was able to get a very affordable room for 5 nights in February, and my room was an executive suite, no less! Since I was using my room as a virtual business center for my stay, it made for a very roomy pleasant place to be most of the day. Staff was super friendly, super helpful, always willing to help. My room had a kitchen area including a fridge and a stove, a large living room space, private bathroom and separate bedroom. I almost feel bad I didn't get to take advantage of all the great amenities. The location was very good, located right in the middle of West End, near Coal Harbour, made for great walking distance to everything in Vancouver downtown. While staying on Robson can sometimes be noisy (Street noise), my bedroom was quiet so sleeping was of no issue. Wi-Fi was a bit iffy, as it would cut in and out sometimes, but I still managed to get all my work done in the time I was there. Overall, a great experience. For anyone looking for an affordable stay in Vancouver with a great value, Greenbrier is fantastic.

Cheap hotel with a good central location

Posted Feb 2, 2015
Pros: low cost and large suite.
Cons: Rooms were looking a little old and tired, fresh paint and new carpet would go a long way to cheering it up
Location: Good location and easy to walk to convention center, good choices for simple and relaxed dining.
The hotel is great if you just want to stay somewhere cheap while visiting Vancouver. If you want a flash hotel then this is not the place for you. Rooms were clean and basic and serviced everyday.

Quaint older facility

Posted Jan 31, 2015
The heating is central, not room controlled. My room was too warm and there was nothing the staff could do.

Nice hotel, just outside of Robson street business

Posted Jan 15, 2015
Pros: Price, Location, Staff that I had interactions with were great, WiFi was included.The Suite was spacious and allowed for visitors.
Cons: With it being a older building, there were some maintenance concerns. But to put this in perspective, that is the business that I am in.
Location: all walking distance, Robson Street, Skytrain, Downtown, False Creek Ferry system, Stanley park.
Was in Vancouver for my daughters wedding, this location was perfect as I was able to walk to where ever I was going, including the False Creek ferry to access Granville Island. The Staff that I had dealt with were very helpful. The room I had a kitchen included, which allowed me to prepare myself food. But if you need anything to use in the kitchen besides the Coffee maker, give the front desk notice of what you need and they will try to accommodate as soon as possible.

The people who work here are very nice and will help with whatever you need. It's clearly not a luxury hotel but for what we needed, it did the job. The only drawback is that there is a lot of extra payments you don't account for- parking, late check-out, etc.

Vancouver,Greenbrier Stay

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Although this hotel is basically a room to stay,nothing like breakfast or a pool which seems so common now a days, it was a very comfortable place to stay. The price was awesome and one hell of a friendly staff all around. It was at the end of all of the fancy shopping on Robson so your walk was enjoyable. Restaurants on all sides of this building so was easy to fill the void of having one right inside of the hotel. Coffee shops also all around. I enjoyed and will recommend to all.

Walk to everything

Posted Dec 9, 2014
We were pleasantly surprised that this hotel was actually a small apartment with a pull out couch in another room. We could walk to anything on Robson, pacific centre and even Gas Town if you like a good hike. The room was very clean with relatively new finishings. Very large windows in each room and the staff was very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
