Very nice public spaces, restaurant was excellent with great views but service was not great, inattentive waiters and they made a mistake in the bill both times we ate there. Room was nice but a bit small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun and Funky"
The pluses: cool boutique vibe. Great Staff. Good scenery. Granville Island restaurants and shopping a short walk from hotel. The Shower was excellent. Negatives: we had an upgraded premium king room and it was still very small. Overall though, a very cool hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute, Clean Hotel, Great Location"
Really clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Loved the shower and bathroom and comfy bed. Walkable to the shops on Granville Island. Hotel sits on the sea wall. It's a beautiful 25 min walk around it with a view of downtown Vancouver. Take the Aquabus over to downtown Vancouver.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst evening staff I have ever experienced."
I stayed at Granville Island Hotel for 3 days. While the young lady at the front desk was helpful and polite, the evening staff was the exact opposite. The gentleman at the front desk in the evening was overtly rude for no apparent reason. The man was unhelpful, and went out of his way to be unpleasant. The experiences with this gentleman were so unpleasant, […] I will likely not stay at the hotel again. In addition, this is a noisy area due to street people outside of the hotel. My windows were closed and all 3 nights people on the street were so loud they woke me up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great stay! The hotel itself is remote and quiet, but just a small stroll get you to the bus routes or to the food and shopping of Granville Island itself. Or great hotel food if you want to stay in the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you don't mind the relative chaos of Granville Island the hotel is great. Even then it is located at a relatively quiet end of the island. Spectacular waterfront location with great views. Hotel staff was very cordial. The room was a little bizarre in arrangement with little room to sneak past the bed. Although the mattress was comfy and the bedding […] high quality my one very significant complaint relates to the 8" thick foam rubber pillows that must have cost $2 at K-Mart. Just really no reason for this. If you did not have back or neck pain before retiring you would in the AM. This was the most significant flaw. The other relates to the BrewPub. It seemed kind of cool for an in-hotel brewery and also cool that much of the 2nd floor was occupied by the brewing apparatus. Oddly it was almost impossible to determine if the brewpub was ever actually open. Sometimes curtains were drawn across the doorway and other times not but there was never any suggestion of any patrons and overall it appeared entirely uninviting. Lastly we left at approximately 6:15 AM at which time the elevator is apparently locked out. It took quite a bit of searching to locate the stairs to the lobby. In summary great location and views and nice staff combined with some oddities ---- and horrible pillows. . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location for the Vancouver Fringe Festival!"
We came to Vancouver for the Fringe Festival, held on Granville Island. This location was perfect for that and walking to restaurants, etc. A particular shout out to Laurie in the restaurant. He was a great waiter and very entertaining!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect hotel stay!"
Great location, beautiful scenery, quaint town- would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor service from front desk staff."
GREAT location. But, three requests of front office staff were ignored. For examples: tv channel listings card wasn't in room. Fellow on front desk promised to deliver it to room along with missing coffee for coffee maker, but never did. The room was reserved over two months prior to stay. And, a month prior to stay I called the hotel directly and upgraded […] (and was charged for) to a deluxe room with a view. We received a small room with almost totally obstructed view, and it was above an outside air vent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel in fun neighborhood"
We had a very good experience Rooms were great but a bit smallGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room was very small ! Balcony so small that only one person might be able to climb over furniture . Whose idea was it to place the toilet directly under the sink? Last but not least no place for luggage or parking. I will not be staying there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"great view of downtown Vancouver"
bed was okay, shower and bathroom were great, very narrow room, wonderful staff, restaurant was great, one hostess refused to move me to another table because she said they were booked but no one ever sat there the entire time I was there, the breakfast table they tried to put us at was not great and asked to move, which they did, and it was never busy […] enough to figure out why they tried to seat us at non desirable table, maybe because I was with younger son? no idea. Staff was great, just not the people seating me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in the heart of Granville Island"
We have stayed at this hotel twice. It seemed to have been upgraded a lot since our last visit a few years ago. The front desk was always helpful, the room was nice with a view, and the location was perfect for us. We didn't eat at the hotel as so much to see and do in Granville and the walk so easy to our favorite places or to the Market for specialty […] morning coffee and goodies. Our departure from the airport to the hotel was so quick and easy. We just got a cab at the airport. We were in our room by ten-thirty in the morning as room was ready. Then we were out the door to explore. Hotel got us a cab to go to the cruise port, and all was on schedule. We had a wonderful three day stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in the heart of Granvillle Island"
Small boutique hotel with very central location with great access to Yaletown via aquabus.Genuine Expedia guest review
Major let down after our 2 prior days stay at beautiful hotel accommodations for much less on Vancouver Island, Victoria and Tofino. We would not stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good hotel; room 325 has a 50% obstructed view to the water noisy hallwaysGenuine Expedia guest review
Love Granville island market so this was a wonderful place to stay. The restaurant was awesome, loved the zucchini pasta. We will be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Favorite Spot in Vancouver"
I've stayed at the Granville Island Hotel since first coming to Vancouver in 1994. The hotel has undergone numerous upgrades since then, but the most compelling reason to keep returning is Granville Island itself. Great theatre, events, artisan shopping and dining is available on the island with fast access to most of Vancouver by ferry or taxi. Beyond […] that, the service is always friendly and the hotel provides a great gym with a sauna and business center. The parking on Granville Island is very limited, and availability varies with season. So you might want to check with the hotel ahead of time about available space.

Small room but meets your needs for overnight hotel stay. Good hotel location to lots of eating establishments and central market area is outstanding! Loved the outside seating & bar area of hotel -- right on the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and extremely cozy"
Was greeted warmly by the staff, the room was well appointed and the hotel is right in the mix of Granville Island. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel and Location!"
The hotel location is perfect right on the water. I sat and watched the ships from my balcony almost daily sitting in the sun reading the local paper or enjoying fresh food from the market. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The most relaxing vacation I have had in years, the beds are very comfortable, the food at Dockside was tasty & presentation […] beautiful as well. Granville Market, restaurants, and shops are all very close to the hotel. Canada is always my top vacation location choice since their customer service consistantly not only meets but exceeds all of my expectations...The attention to detail, cleanliness, and kindness of the hotel staff stand out in my mind and were all very appreciated. A little treat I found at Roger's yummy chocloates was Ice Wine Truffles, I left one box for the staff at the hotel desk and brought home 2 boxes for myself and friends. Roger's Ice cream bars are good too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Superb Hotel-Awesome location"
Everything was outstanding! Except perhaps that the restaurant lost interest in serving the hotel guests on Mothers Day Morning as they were all booked up for brunch and couldnt provide room service or coffee. But hey! Just outside the door (Granville Island Market) is a spectacular array of every kind of delicacy you can imaging. We are going back […] soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Granville Island Vancouver experience"
9 day stay to see family in Kitsalano area and access UBC amenities near Point Grey. Far superior to staying downtown Vancouver or on Broadway for traffic, parking and quiet mornings, -- awoke to seagulls not traffic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Vacation on Granville Island"
Our vacation was fantastic...wish we could have stayed for a couple more weeks. The location was excellent...close to The Market Place, local sites, stores like Roots, Costco....a fun experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only hotel on granville island...close, comfy.."
2 nights & 3 days at GIH. We cycled the seawall from stanley park to jericho park, grazed the market, great bites and brews at Wiks, sake tasting at osake, street buskers, bc public tv is a model and fun to watch when just chilling in the room. Booking w Expedia did not include parking fee as advertised, a minor & awkward disappointment at check in […] time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location to downtown Vancouver."
The location was great. The room was a bit small and right next to the hotel's brewery, so a bit noisy. It was clean and comfortable. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Off-season, weekend getaway"
We took advantage of an off-season, weekend special to treat the March blues in the cloudy, cool, rainy northwest. This hotel is a perfect base for exploring Granville Island and greater Vancouver. Our room was small, but very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't Say Enough Good Things!"
We were treated so well by ALL the staff at the Granville Island Hotel. Courteous and effient is all I can say. The hotel is modern and comfortable, the fixtures are all beautiful and we had an amazing view! The bed was just right and the linens are soft and lovely. Granville Islad has so much to offer plus easy access by water taxi to downtown Vancouver […] and Stanley Park. Stay here for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location! Location! Location!"
This hotel is ideal for a weekend escape. The room is quite small, requiring some squeezing around furniture to access far side of the bed, but Granville Island is so full of exciting arts and crafts shops, the amazing market, superb restaurants and gorgeous walking opportunities that you really won't use your room except to sleep. And the bed was very […] comfy, the bathroom immaculate. The lobby has lots of chairs for sitting and chatting or reading and the lounge is friendly and relaxed for socialization. Looking forward to my next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location makes it worth it"
Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel was in a great location. Room was decent, needed some repairs to the sliding closet door and door to the patio.

Great hotel in the middle of everything. Nice Granville Ilsand location. Very clean rooms although regular rooms are a bit small. Very comfortable overall. Highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
WE enjoyed our stay but did find our room a bit small for the price we paid. The staff was friendly and very helpful. It was noisy outside our window late in the night. The staff took care of that problem. We loved the restaurant at the hotel. We have been there in the past and would most likely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in Vancouver, B.C., Canada"
The Granville Island Hotel is an exceptional hotel in a great location. You can take a taxi there from the airport in only 20 minutes. The hotel has contemporary decor, friendly and efficient staff, a great dining room with an awesome view of False Creek and the cityscape of Vancouver. You can walk through art galleries, stop at the food market, shop […] in the many shops and have your choice from many great restaurants, bars and even a distillery. It was our second stay there and we know we'll go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Accommodating staff, beautiful room"
A truly amazing experience. We were looking for a low - key place to stay with local amenities within walking distance. The improv theater and restaurants were a few minutes walking from the hotel, and a tranquil boardwalk lies right outside the hotel. The public market was a wonderful experience and also minutes away. Initially we were given, against […] our request, a double bed room but upon request were moved to a beautiful king room, spacious and recently renovated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is at the best location do enjoy the Vancouver. Especially, if you are traveling with kids. The room is clean and well equipped but it's a bit small. It's located next to many activities. We will definitely return for next visit to Vancouver.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful location, great hotel"
Upon arriving in Vancouver, we stayed at the Granville Island Hotel before catching a ferry to the Sunshine Coast the next day. The hotel is the only one on the Island, which is a fun place to visit. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a unique and convenient way to visit this beautiful city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, very comfortable and clean."
A couple of suggestions: towel racks in the bathrooms, and down pillows. Also, the breakfast menu is not that great. Bland and boring. Otherwise, the room itself was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Fine Stay"
Perfect location for me...needed to be on the East side of the bridges and it allowed me easy commuting. Room and hotel perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming, friendly hotel in fun location"
We had a fantastic stay over NYE. Staff was super friendly, our dog friendly room had a water view, and every local we met was friendly and welcoming. Great hotel for dog owners as a grassy park is next door and a boardwalk goes around the island for long walks. If you haven't visited Granville Island, it's a Vancouver must-do. Staying there is even […] better as parking/driving can be trying and there's so much to see, eat and do there. Because our dog gets nervous with loud noises, we didn't attend the hotel's big NYE party, opting to get some Oyama sausages/meats, fresh bread and cheeses from the Public Mkt to go with cocktails we made in our room. With a sold-out event, 2 bands and people coming and going, we didn't hear much more than a few doors and firecrackers. The appetizers and cocktails in the lounge and NYD breakfast were delicious. Highly recommend a visit it the Granville Island Hotel. Fabulous value...just compare to other Vancouver hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
