Beautiful Suites but other aspects are just OK
Spent New Years eve in this property after staying at the JW Marriot for almost 10 days. We thought there was going to be fireworks that we can see from our suite but for some reason it was canceled. Lets start with the good. The rooms are pretty nice. It was like a small one bedroom apartment without the kitchen. What you see in the pictures is what you get. The location is good especially if you are a first time visitor. Its pretty central to everything. For us, we would rather be in the JW Marriot area since its more residential, less chaotic but still walkable. The service here is just OK. Nothing impressive, nothing special. The hotel was not busy at all and we asked for a late check out the next day and they want to charge for that. I know it was not busy coz I asked another employee. Most Marriot hotels would have no problem allowing guests to check out later especially if it doesnt cost them anything and the guest is a silver or a gold member. I was a bit turned off by this. The biggest deduction in stars is the sound proofing. Mind you that I am noise sensitive so this issue might not matter to "regular" people. Although I did not have this issue staying at the JW Marriot or the Westin on Robson. We stayed at 1815 which looks like a corner unit. I was hearing sounds from above through the vents when we were in the living room. For these reasons, I am not a return customer but I wouldnt really stop people from staying her if the issues I posted are non issues for you.
i was recenlty there for business
this is a nice hotel all rooms are suites. its easily accessible from the skytrain. The sheets are excellent, smooth and not rough. staff are very engaging and helpful. When you come in the concierge opens the door and has a warm friendly smile.
Disappointing return 2.5 years later
In June 2017 I rated this property a "4" and was broadly positive about the experience, which is what prompted a return. This time, it was a miss and a bit embarrassing having brought along some travel buddies. The location of the Delta is good and will meet all downtown needs. Check in was very friendly. The disappointment started once we got to the room, a one bedroom suite. Our issues were... 1. The room was large, very large, and the bathroom was tiny, for no reason other than terrible design. It did not provide room for two people to get ready at once. To access the sink, you needed to stand on the toilet, because the basin was installed on the wrong side. And the bathroom door and shower door could not be open at the same time. 2. The shower leaked to the floor. Turning on the shower wasn't possible without getting sprayed with cold water. 3. The towels were thinner and less welcoming than my old school gym towels 4. The toilet paper was thinner and less welcoming than the towels 5. All of the pillows were very high/thick... though when we called down, a better quality one was brought quickly and made a world of difference 6. There is no ceiling lighting. Getting the room light was an arduous process of finding multiple lamps and turning them on one by one. 7. The fridge was empty 8. We woke to construction noise from the adjacent development With that out of the way, the things to like are that it is clean, well located and friendly. So pick your poison: this is a cookie-cutter hotel that will make many people happy, but the shape of the cookie wasn't right for us this time. We relocated to the Douglas for our final night, at a comparative rate.
One notch above
Stayed at this property for one night while attending a conference in Vancouver. It is located two blocks from the main transportation hub in downtown which makes it easier to come and go. Also, you can walk almost anywhere in downtown in a few minutes. The property looks different from the outside than it is on the inside. Very unassuming (and I would say non appealing) exterior but as soon as you walk into the lobby, it is modern, fresh and clearly meant for demanding travelers. Rooms are suite type with two and even three separate spaces. All of them very comfortable. The bed and pillows are excellent. Wifi is very reliable and there are outlets everywhere! The only thing I didn’t feel was right was the bathroom in my suite. Quite small for a property of this level. But, this is not enough to take away all other positives. 5 stars and one notch above other properties in downtown Vancouver.
Central location downtown waterfront
Two blocks from the water and a block from the train station downtown. Limited amenities in the hotel - one restaurant - but lots of options locally of course. Rooms were spacious and clean. I was upgraded to a large suite. Service is friendly and the property is reasonably priced for downtown.
