Intimate hotel in great central location
Posted Dec 21, 2016
What can I say? Every time my husband and I visit Vancouver we stay at Granville Island. Although this hotel is centrally situated in Vancouver only minutes from downtown, its location on Granville Island makes it an oasis within the hustle and bustle of this giant metropolis. Just out side the hotels doors, you can stroll along the waterfront, enjoy quiet moments in a green belt park, grab a fabulous coffee at a fresh roast or local beer at a microbrewery, enjoy the wonders of the city's largest market, or browse galleries and specialty shops at your leisure - without moving your car or worrying about taking a taxi.
The hotel is exceptionally cared for. In all the years staying here have we ever found we needed anything. Rooms are quiet, clean, with a pleasant decor. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms updated with nice amenities provided. There's a well stocked mini bar and free wifi. Every room has a nice view.
Often we head down to the Sandbar for dinner, only a five minute walk, but also enjoy the excellent restaurant right within the hotel during our stay; their Sunday brunch menu makes a weekend stay a plus.
The hotel staff always goes out of their way to make a stay exceptional, whether that may be through a speedy check-in, by giving directions and local advice (check out the 5th Avenue Cinema), or even assisting with computer difficulties! They are all great.
Thank you, Granville Island Hotel, for another great stay.
