"Granville Island Hotel"
Staff was accommodating. Room was clean and well appointed. A little stingy with the drinks in the bar though! Maybe related to BC regs? Anyway...a very pleasant location, several restaurants in area, activities abound, and excellent scenery (on waterfront).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great little hotel right on Granville Island"
We love Vancouver as a vacation destination and the Granville Island Hotel is ideally situated for us on Granville Island. The Granville Market, great shopping and eating are close, as are the jogging paths along False Creek (ran the 5K to the Science Center and back along with most of Vancouver most days!) Nice rooms, great restaurant. Have stayed […] there before and will again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in a unique location"
We visited with our 4 year old and found this to be a great location away from the busy downtown hotels. Our room overlooked the harbor and the kids market, public market, and restaurants are a short, pleasant walk away; the art studios and theaters of the Railspur district are next door and fun to browse. We even got to chat with a Haida totem pole […] sculptor working at night near the hotel. The hotel itself was beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was very nice and a great location on Granville Island. It was nice to be able to just walk around and be on the water. Also enjoyed walking around the the Farmers Market on the Island. The hotel Staff was very friendly!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I loved this hotel!"
Was very well placed on a gorgeous island, service was great, rooms were clean. We really had no complaints! Would have been nice if breakfast was included free as well, but that's a nit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice stay in Vancouver."
It was a pleasant experience and with the exception of the traffic on the island we had no complaints. Great views.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great place to stay on Granville island"
Wonderful experience, walking distance to all of Granville island's attractions, walking distance to ferries to rest of Vancouver. We will definitely stay here again. The best pleasure trip we've taken in some time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great accommodations, always enjoy Granville Island and the Market. Staff most welcoming and helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Terrific pet friendly hotel, convenient and comfy"
Very nice hotel, lovely lobby, small but comfortable room, nice king sized bed, clean but paint was chipping off door to bathroom. Loved that my small dog was welcome, she was given a treat upon arrival. Delicious breakfast in the restaurant. I would definitely stay here again even if I do not bring my dog.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great night and an Earthquake to boot!"
We just got married and due to our busy schedules in nursing and management we didn't have time for a long honeymoon so we did a one night stay at the Grandville Island Hotel. We wanted to stroll the streets and see the shops and public market. What a pleasant surprise! Nice rooms, a bit small but very clean and updated from a recent renovation. We […] were there on the night the 7.7 earthquake hit norther BC. the staff were very helpful and kept their cool. Great say and wonderful shops - very arts so the prices are a bit high but the hand worked stuff from silk weaving to carvings are exceptional. the Public market food was exceptional. We will be back when we have more time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Granville Island Hotel was an excellent location for seeing things on the Island as well as visiting Vancouver sites. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Front desk lady and price"
There was an Asian looking lady at the front desk who was extremely rude. The price was very very high for a 3 star Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location! Fun for everyone!"
We spent 4 nights at this hotel and brought our two children. It was a fantastic location to stay. We spent time watching the boats, playing in the park, and checking out the kid market. We took an aqua ferry to the Science Center which was a great adventure for us all. It was easy to get to Stanley Park and Grouse Mountain by car. There are nice restaurants […] on the island. The kids loved the gelato available everywhere. The hotel was clean. The restaurant was accomodating with my husbands dietary restrictions. The only items that were less than ideal, was that there was only a small fridge and it was crammed with mini-bar alcohol and snacks (hard to store snacks for the kids). The staff was a little short when we asked questions at the desk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel! We loved it!"
This hotel is wonderful. The room was a nice size, quiet and very well appointed. The location is fantastic as it is within walking distance of everything on Granville Island, including the incredible market and the kids' market. We traveled with three children and they loved staying on the island. The hotel is located next to a park with a big, grassy […] hill and lots of geese. The staff was friendly and the parking pass they give to guests makes it easy to park in an area that would otherwise be very difficult to find a space. Loved the toiletries here too. The pillows were a little bit big and hard, but that is my only complaint for this hotel. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel with a View"
Great location on east end of popular False Creek, next to boat dock and across water from scenic skyscrapers of Yaletown. Meals are available, 9am to 7pm, at food courts in the nearby public market. You won't need a car. The city and major attractions are a short ride away on the frequent ferries near the hotel. And you can rent a bike at the Granville […] for $25 a day.

"Way above my expectation"
The hotel is definitely above my expectation. It is charming and has a super patio restaurant. It is the perfect hotel to explore Granville Island.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great location!"
The hotel was lovely. Fabulous location to walk around the shops and restaurants. We took a cab into Vancouver to meet some friends for dinner and that was easy. Great place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Highly recommend the Grandville Island Hotel"
The room was spotlessly clean and nicely appointed, with lovely bed linens, comforters, towels and a nice atmosphere/decor. We really appreciated the free high-speed internet access. The bed was very comfortable, and was set up with high-quality bedbug encasements on it. This is extremely important to me, so I was able to relax and enjoy my stay (there […] are no bedbug reports for this hotel in the bb registry, which is one reason I chose it). Luxuirious shower with two types of nozzle, including 'rainshower' head. The staff was friendly, accommodating, lovely to us in every way. The grounds were well-maintained, and it was definitely worth the price. We enjoyed a quiet room, slept well. I'd DEFINITELY recommend, and will probably stay there again.

"Great location, OK hotel"
This hotel has a great location. The staff were friendly. At first after checking in our WIFI wasn't working and the TV wasn't either. When we put in the call, a staff member came up right away and found the problem - something covering the digital input for the TV. A few minutes later they called and the WIFI was working. I didn't like the fact that […] we didn't have a tub in our room, just a shower. But the room was nice and clean. The facilities are a little old. We checked out the hot tub and sauna room. Luckily we were the only ones there so it was fine. We would stay there again, but next time request a better room. Ours, on the second floor, faced the fire lane and when people were outside talking at 4:00am, you could hear them, as well as the other sounds at 7:00am or so. Dinner in the restaurant was fine.

"The Grandville Island Hotel is the place to stay!"
If you want to walk to the best shops for quality crafts and interesting imports or watch fine craftsmen ply their trades, catch a great meal with a view of the harbor or just explore the most interesting public market on the west coast, this is where you want to stay. The hotel is clean, comfortable, friendly and best of all, it's in the best location! […] If your visit is short, you must stay here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Granville Island Hotel - Great Hotel and Location"
Everything in this hotel worked for us - reception, room, bar, restaurant and an ideal location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is great, the breakfast was outstanding, but the room was way to small for the furniture that was there. We could barely turn around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but clean room"
The only disappointment was with the size of my room and the key cards that kept failing. Some of the staff were a little snooty and some were very nice. The in room coffee was good and the shower was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Granville Island Hotel"
Very upscale hotel, excellent food in the dining room.However, the "water-view" room was awkward and small with too much furniture in it. There were workers on the deck outside the window looking straight in and the outside lounge was closed for a private function - no one was out there by the fire, but we were not allowed to sit out there. Therefore, […] felt restricted and constricted. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and restaurant"
Lots to see on the Island, the little ferry boats were fun, and there's a wonderful walking trail all around False Creek. It's a quick drive to Stanley Park. It was an easy walk to English Bay to see the wonderful summer fireworks. The attached restaurant, Dockside, is fabulous. We ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoyed it all. Be sure […] to make reservations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice boutique hotel."
Lovely hotel right at Granville Island with the market and lots of unique shops. The hotel is right on the water and with many nice places to sit and watch the boats go by or have a meal. A 5 minute walk takes you to the water ferries which go all over the harbour.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A kettle would have been good, and the floor was a bit cold underfoot. Business centre v useful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel through Expedia for my daughter's wedding night. I actually booked for the night before as well, but they put me in a room with 2 doubles instead of 1 king. They were quick to fix the booking, and made the stay perfect for my daughter and my new son-in-law. Thanks for the hospitalityGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value and appropriate service. Was only disappointed by the room size which was significantly smaller than anticipated given online descriptions and price. The space you have to walk around in the room we had (301) is less than that in my closet at home - no exaggeration. And my closet is not huge by many standards.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice to see green grass again plus colourful flowers. We're from Toronto where all is white or brown. Staff at hotel were superfriendly and welcoming. Meals were great. View is stunning.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, adequate"
Would I recommend this hotel to a friend, I checked "yes" but actually it depends. There are few decent hotels centrally located, but outside of the DT core. When our offices were located in the Shaughnessy area, I used to recommend the GIH to out-of-town colleagues over, say, the Holiday Inn on Broadway, and I would still recommend to a bus. traveler […] who doesn't need to be DT, but doesn't want to be stuck by the airport. But, for the price, there are better hotels. The main draw is the location. Granville Island has everything: market, artisans' workshops, shopping, theatres, restaurants, beautiful sights, extensive walking/biking trails, and easy access to DT & other areas of the city. There is ample parking, and the parking charge is reasonable compared to other hotels. PARKING TIP: if you are staying for only one night, you likely don't need to pay for parking. There is free 3-hour parking from 7am to 7pm (green signs) right next to hotel pkg (blue signs). If you arrive at 4 in the afternoon and leave before 10 am, you're good. The hotel doesn't encourage this. Criticism #1, I had a complimentary prkg pass for night 1, and for 2d night, I advised I wouldn't require parking. I was charged anyway, even tho I was assured this wouldn't occur. I didn't notice this on my bill until later. I chose deluxe rm; it was quite small, so I don't know what a std rm entails. Agree with another rvwr about design idiosyncracies. For the $, I'd expect better. But adequate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Staff in the dining room need training. very poor attendance to wishes of guests at table. Lounge/dining - bar good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Can park for free at certain parts of the day. Ask about the free parking. Breakfast food was very fresh and nutritious. The service at the front desk and breakfast area was excellent. The room was quiet but the king bed filled the room. The bathroom was very clean but small. We didn't overlook the marina but you can get rooms that do... Not sure if […] if those rooms are more expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super spot if you like Granville Island"
An excellent choice if you want to be near downtown but in a more fun and funky location. Close to the market, great restaurants, theatres, and a short ferry hop to downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"lots to see and do"
awesome place to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is very convenient especially on busy weekends where Parking at Granville can be next to impossible to find. Staff was excellent restaurant was very good, although there are others you will want to try close by. The room was disappointing however, very small, poorly laid out with no room to sit 2 properly. The shower was fantastic except the […] seal around the glass door allowed water to leak all over the bathroom floor at an alarming rate requiring several towels for clean up! (we notified the front desk so hopefully this situation has be rectified). If you plan on a relaxing stay away and want to incl Granville in your plans, I would be sure to ask for a waterfront room next time, but for convenience there is certainly nothing better.

"Great location, cozy hotel"
The Granville Island Hotel's staff made me welcome from the moment I arrived. They offered me a map of the area, and I appreciated the early (2:00 p.m.) check in time. The room was comfortable and clean, and had a great view of the shops and galleries of the island. It was a terrific location, centrally located, and near many restaurants, shops, and […] art. The hotel restaurant had a terrific view, excellent service, and a delicious selection. I had two meetings there, and found the atmosphere quiet and peaceful. I would stay again at this hotel anytime. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a great little hotel with an amazing location on the water of False Creek. Being located on Granville island allows you to wander the local shops and the market. It's location allows you to be outside of the downtown core but close enough for a short taxi ride if needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
