Worst Night of Sleep In Years
I booked 2 months out and had requested a quiet room away from road noise. Somehow the only room available on arrival was right above the very busy road. It sure felt like I got penalized for booking as the staff had no interest in trying to accommodate my request. Traffic noise was terrible and there were drunk people yelling as they came out of nearby bars at 3 am. First and last time I'll ever stay at this property.

Wonderful stay

Location, bus service, good hotel restaurant
Our stay was wonderful. We 100% enjoyed our stay. The ribs at the hotel restaurant are the best I have eaten anywhere, I would recommend that anyone tries these. We had no complaints.

Good Location with nice view

Location, Homey, nice place
Best Western is located in West end near the English bay. Since Vancouver downtown is pretty small and covered by a great transportation. Getting into the hotel from the train station was pretty easy with skytrain or bus. The hotel building is an old one with an elevator looks like the 80s but the room is pretty homey. Nice room amenities, great mattras and many goose down pillows. It remains my bed back home. My room has a partial view of English bay. Great panaromic view of sun dawn on the evening and big ships in the morning. The hotes is on a central location closed to park and beach, so it is very comforting not too downtonwny. The only thing concerns me was the price. LOL. since hotel in Vancouver area is very expensive. USD 120++ and up. But overall the hotel is very recommended. even my high-end friends who joined the last couple days gave two thumbs up.

Quite good

location, parking, fast check in and out
i just say in this hotel with friends for a night. so far so good. just like normal room with two beds and washroom. However the backside of the building is a wonderful sea view... quite attractive view. if you just want a place to rest for one night or two, you may try it.

Vancouver stop over

Close to Stanley Park. Quiet location. Handy to multiple ethnically diverse restaurants
Enjoyable time. Helpful staff and accommodation in a handy location to the beach on one hand, and downtown shopping on the other.

Good location but noisy

Close to English Bay and Stanley Park, Good transport services, Good area for shops and restaurants.
The hotel was in a good location, not too far to be able to walk to the Downtown area but also very close to English Bay Beach and Stanley Park. Also directly opposite a bike hire shop that we took full advantage of to cycle around Vancouver. The interior of the hotel was a little tired and could do with livening up a bit. Our main criticism was that having a room on the road side was extremely noisy at times with traffic until late at night and early morning.
