    Fairmont Pacific Rim
    Vancouver
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3511 reviewsTripAdvisor (3511)
    Free Breakfast

    While the Fairmont Pacific Rim features a long list of luxurious amenities, its downtown Vancouver location is what helps it stand apart from competitors. Set on the Coal Harbour waterfront, the hotel sits across the street from the Canada Place cruise ship terminal. Thanks to the hotel's location, recent guests say the views from the rooms and rooftop are spectacular. When you're not gazing out across the harbor, relax poolside in one of the private cabanas or by one of the cozy outdoor fire pits. For even more serenity, visitors recommend booking a treatment at the Willow Stream Spa. Continue the pampering at Botanist, which serves regionally sourced dishes. Craving a pick-me-up? Venture to giovane cafe + wine bar, which offers house-made pastries for breakfast and Italian cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Once you've refueled, retreat to your digs where you'll find a Stearns & Foster bed, an iPod docking station and an iPad2, which you can use to order room service and operate various controls in the guest room. Although this Fairmont's high-tech amenities are an added perk, according to recent visitors, it's the hotel's exceptional service that makes a stay here memorable.

    The Westin Bayshore, Vancouver
    Vancouver, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3800 reviewsTripAdvisor (3800)

    Sitting pretty in the Vancouver's Coal Harbour neighborhood (less than a mile southeast of Stanley Park), The Westin Bayshore prides itself on its sophisticated ambiance. Accommodations are outfitted with the brand's signature Heavenly beds and sliding glass doors that showcase views of the harbor, Stanley Park or the city skyline. When you're not relaxing in your room, check out the property's two pools (one indoors and one located outside). Tucked into the lush, well-maintained grounds, the outdoor pool boasts panoramic views of the North Shore Mountains. For more pampering, book a treatment at the Vida Spa Vancouver or grab cocktails at the Seawall Bar & Grill. But plan to skip the breakfast buffet (which some past visitors say is overpriced) in lieu of the neighborhood's more reasonably priced fare. If you're a coffee drinker, be sure to swing by the Starbucks located in the hotel lobby. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Admired by cruise passengers and luxury-seekers alike, the Fairmont Waterfront plays off of Vancouver's best asset: its mountains. Whether you're gazing at them from the floor-to-ceiling windows in your room or while lounging at the heated outdoor pool, the Fairmont's surroundings are a consistent source of praise from recent guests. And because this Fairmont is conveniently located across the street from the cruise ship terminal, passengers can easily go from boat to hotel, or vice versa. Along with the superb location, visitors praise the accommodations, appointed with 47-inch flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and Le Labo toiletries. When you're ready for a bite to eat, head to ARC Restaurant, where the chef incorporates ingredients from the hotel's 2,100-square-foot rooftop garden and on-site honeybee colony into the menu. If you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member, you can earn future free nights and airline miles for choosing to bed down here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3834 reviewsTripAdvisor (3834)

    Thanks to its Gothic architecture and grand interior, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is known as the "Castle in the City." Visitors say this hotel's unique Old World charm sets it apart from some of the downtown area's trendier accommodations. Rooms are outfitted with flat-screen TVs and windows that open to inner courtyard or city views. When guests aren't admiring the view from their rooms, they can slip away to the Notch8 Restaurant & Bar in the hotel's lobby for fresh seafood and steak. After a memorable meal, take advantage of the property's ample amenities, including the 24-hour fitness center and expansive glass-enclosed indoor pool. For a little more rejuvenation, book a treatment at the Absolute Spa. Though a stay at this "castle" will cost you, you'll be eligible to earn frequent flier miles for future travels if you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3808 reviewsTripAdvisor (3808)
    Free Breakfast

    Airport hotels aren't usually lauded for their luxury. But the Fairmont Vancouver Airport – the only hotel located directly within Vancouver International Airport (YVR) – ups the comfort for guests in transit. Situated above the U.S. departures terminal and only a short jaunt from baggage claim, the Fairmont offers soundproof floor-to-ceiling windows, minibars, Le Labo bath amenities and flat-screen TVs. When you're not sleeping off jet lag, travelers recommend kicking back at the Globe@YVR restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling windows put you right in front of the departing planes, while a Pacific Northwest menu will fill you up for the journey ahead. And if you're looking for a little pre- or post-vacation rejuvenation, recent visitors recommend a treatment at the Absolute Spa. If you're in the mood for a nightcap, travelers suggest Jetside Bar for its local wine selection. Though previous visitors warm that the hotel's comfort and convenience comes attached to a hefty price tag, you can earn airline miles and perks if you're a member of the Le Club AccorHotels program.

    Hyatt Regency Vancouver

    Free WiFi

    Centrally located on the northern edge of downtown, just a few blocks from the Coal Harbour waterfront, the Hyatt Regency Vancouver offers a well-situated locale for cruise ship passengers, sightseers and business travelers. Along with the neighborhood, visitors also praise the well-designed rooms, which feature floor-to-ceiling windows, iPod docking stations, small refrigerators and consistently lauded Hyatt Grand beds. But visitors do offer one gripe: the hotel's steep parking rates (about $27 USD per day). If you're a Hyatt Gold Passport member, you may save on fees. You can also opt into the hotel's Park and Stay special for free parking. But with an abundance of dining choices and attractions within walking distance, recent guests say it's easy to navigate the city on foot. If you would rather linger back at the hotel, you can satiate your appetite at the Mosaic Grille restaurant or savor a cocktail at Grain Tasting Bar. On the go? You can get your caffeine fix at the hotel, too — there's a Starbucks in the lobby. Guests also recommend sticking around the Hyatt for the heated outdoor pool, which they say offers a relaxing respite from the downtown hubbub.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2133 reviewsTripAdvisor (2133)

    Located less than a mile west of the Canada Place cruise ship terminal, the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel makes a convenient home base for cruisers and non-cruisers alike. Thanks to this Marriott outpost's proximity to Gastown (less than a mile south of the hotel), you won't have to go far for delicious meals. If you prefer to stick close to the hotel, visitors say the menu at the Showcase Restaurant and Bar is delicious, albeit pricey. Meanwhile, accommodations boast Marriott's signature Revive Collection bedding, floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious bathrooms stocked with Bath & Body Works toiletries. Recent guests recommend requesting a room with views of the harbor and North Shore Mountains, saying that the spectacular views justify the price tag. However, if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can cash in your points for a free night or save them for a future stay. And while you won't find a spa here, you can relax at a 52-foot-long indoor pool or work up a sweat at the fitness center.

    River Rock Casino Resort

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Complete with indoor waterfalls, the lobby at River Rock Casino Resort is the entry point to abundant amenities and buzzing nightlife. In 2011, River Rock's guest rooms nearly doubled in quantity when the resort built The Hotel at River Rock next door. And with six eateries and a lively lounge, guests rarely need to leave the premises. A 21,000-square-foot theater is also found on site, along with the Absolute Spa, which caters to serenity-seekers with a versatile selection of massages, facials and other body treatments. The casino is open all night, and sleeping in shouldn't be a problem; guests rave about River Rock's plush bedding (though some do caution that the thin walls do not effectively block out disruptive nighttime noise). Still, guests assure you can expect a pleasant stay overall thanks to the hotel's covetable amenities like in-suite minifridges, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Another big draw for travelers is the resort's convenient location just 3 miles east of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and right on the SkyTrain's Canada Line.

    As its name suggests, La Grande Residence at The Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver is housed within The Sutton Place Hotel, making a convenient choice for travelers who require all the accoutrements of an apartment with the attentive service and amenities of a hotel. Accommodations are outfitted with Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. Recent guests describe the rooms as comfortable, though some bemoan the worn state of the room furnishings. Visitors are more approving of the hotel's location – Yaletown sits less than a mile south of the hotel, while Stanley Park is located just a mile and a half northwest. La Grande Residence's central location is handy come dinnertime: Recent travelers recommend skipping the pricey plates dished up at the on-site Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar in favor of the neighborhood's diverse food scene. When you're ready to relax, make your way back to the hotel for a dip in the indoor pool or a treatment at Vida Spa.

    Many travelers refer to the Westin Grand Vancouver as their go-to Vancouver hotel. Situated on Robson Street, about three blocks south of the Vancouver Art Gallery, this Westin outpost puts visitors within a stone's throw of some of the city's best shopping. Along with the stellar location, guests praise the spacious, well-equipped accommodations. Outfitted with kitchenettes, Westin Heavenly beds and Westin Heavenly bathrooms complete with deep-soaking tubs and separate showers, the rooms are especially comfortable, according to recent visitors. If you're looking to turn the relaxation up a notch, head to the outdoor saltwater pool. Just make sure you stick around the rooftop pool terrace for drinks and snacks at the #PopUpPatio during the warmer months. When small plates won't satisfy your hunger, travelers recommend the seafood at Hidden Tasting Bar. While rates at the hotel are high thanks to its stellar location, you can save some some money if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member.

While this Westin's location proves handy for air travelers, it's not particularly well-situated for sightseers: The hotel isn't located near any of Vancouver's top attractions. Recent guests are content to grab dinner at the hotel's on-site restaurant, The Apron, where visitors say the regional cuisine and service is above average. Lodgers also praise the comfy accommodations, which boast wide windows, Westin Heavenly Beds, flat-screen TVs and internet access (which will cost you extra). Despite the hotel's proximity to the airport, travelers say the room is blissfully quiet. When it's time to take off, you can hop on the hotel's free airport shuttle. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Aside from the views, accommodations also come appointed with expansive balconies, free Wi-Fi, pillow-top beds and flat-screen TVs. While most recent guests give the guest rooms and staff rave reviews, some do lament the breakfast selection and suggest asking the knowledgeable concierge for dining recommendations instead.

    Located in Burnaby, around 9 miles southeast of downtown Vancouver, the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown offers a quiet escape from the downtown bustle. It's also situated right next to Metropolis at Metrotown – one of British Columbia's largest malls. Even if you're not in the mood to shop, the hotel's proximity to the mall proves beneficial if you're looking for a versatile (and cheap) selection of dining choices. Back on the property grounds, you can grab a table at Reflect, the hotel's restaurant, which earns praise from previous visitors for its relaxed atmosphere and tasty dishes. Guests are also quick to compliment the clean, comfortable rooms, though some do note that they were smaller than they had expected. Accommodations feature minifridges, LCD TVs, complimentary basic Wi-Fi and mountain or skyline views. Travelers also add that the hotel's housekeeping staff makes sure the rooms – and the entire hotel – are spotless. Plus, Hilton Honors members can accrue and redeem reward points for choosing to stay here.

The bathrooms are just as impressive with rainforest shower fixtures and heated floors. For extra pampering, treat yourself to a visit at Sense, A Rosewood Spa. When hunger sets in, the swanky Reflections: The Garden Terrace (open during the warmer months), serves cocktails and small plates. Meanwhile, Hawksworth Restaurant features a formal atmosphere and a menu with locally inspired cuisine. But when just drinks will do, kick back at the 1927 Lobby Lounge, which borrows its name from the building's original construction in 1927. You'll find this Rosewood outpost in downtown Vancouver at the corner of Howe and West Georgia streets (around the corner from the Vancouver Art Gallery).

Not to mention the blue window panels that cover the property's facade. Aside from the distinct design theme, recent guests also loved hotel's central location in downtown Vancouver (Yaletown, Chinatown and Gastown are all less than a mile away). Along with a great address, the hotel has its finger on the pulse of conservation, employing a variety of green practices, including in-room energy management systems, low flush toilets and a ban on plastic water bottles. But that doesn't mean comfort takes a backseat: Standard guest rooms feature Nespresso coffee makers, Samsung smart TVs, minifridges and more. A business center and gym are among the other amenities available at Hotel Blu, and there are three on-site restaurants, including Black Rice, an Izakaza, or Japanese drinking establishment for which the hotel has a private entrance.

Another crowd pleaser: the award-winning Diva at the Met restaurant, which features Pacific Northwest cuisine (with an emphasis on locally sourced seafood) and an elegant setting. But travelers warn the ambiance and delicious menu come at a high price. So if you're on a budget, consider exploring the restaurants around neighboring Coal Harbour. You'll find the Metropolitan less than a mile east of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Along with the stellar seaside location, guests also praise the comfy rooms, appointed with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access, minifridges and your pick of harbor or mountain views. Another source of praise: the 25-meter pool and complimentary hotel bikes. Travelers say the bikes make exploring North Van's shops and delicious restaurants easy. But if you're content to stay near the hotel, visitors say The Lobby Restaurant offers a delicious seafood-centric menu and attentive service. Pier7 Restaurant + Bar is another crowd-pleaser, thanks to its robust wine list and seasonal menu.

Though some previous guests do claim that the rooms lack the home-away-from-home feel of other Starwood properties, others compliment the clean, quiet atmosphere. For a little extra relaxation, take a soak in one of two Jacuzzis or lounge by the 50-foot-long indoor lap pool. When you're ready for a bite to eat, travelers suggest skipping the limited menu and expensive plates at on-site restaurant, Café One, in lieu of the neighborhood's more diverse offerings. Grabbing a cocktail at the hotel's Bar One makes a perfect bookend to your stay. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Rising above Vancouver's metropolis, the Auberge impresses guests with its views overlooking the surrounding mountains and waterfront. But a brag-worthy backdrop isn't the only thing this Vancouver retreat has going for it: Its prime perch puts guests within walking distance of popular restaurants, high-end boutiques and city attractions, including the Vancouver Lookout, Stanley Park and the Vancouver Aquarium. Still, you might be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave the property grounds with perks like direct entry to The Terminal City Club Fitness Centre, which contains an 82-foot-long indoor pool with Lion's Gate Bridge and harbor views. And the rooms aren't too shabby either, outfitted with amenities like iPod docking stations, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffee makers. There is one drawback, however: There are no restaurants on-site. But on the plus side, the hotel does offer guests complimentary continental breakfast along with easy access to nearby restaurants. Plus, if you're planning a cruise, the hotel is within walking distance of the Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal, making it a convenient place to hang your hat before or after you set sail.
