Best Western Plus Downtown Vancouver Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Downtown, Vancouver, British Columbia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Generic decor and dated bathrooms
  • Fee for valet and self-parking
  • Little action at night in the area

Bottom Line

The Best Western is located in downtown Vancouver, western Canada's financial center. Its 143 bright, decent-sized rooms come with flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and in many rooms, microwaves and mini-fridges. But the decor is generic, and bathrooms are nothing special. The property features a fitness center with great downtown views, a Jacuzzi, gated parking, and great freebies, including Wi-Fi, shuttle service to any downtown attraction, and bike rentals. Overall, it’s a solid pick for value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the southern part of Downtown Vancouver, near lively Robson Square and the subway

Downtown Vancouver is the financial and commercial hub of the city. It’s bustling during the weekdays, when tourists and locals fill the streets -- but empties out at night and on the weekends. However, the Robson Square complex, located five blocks northeast of the property, is always lively, featuring restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vancouver Art Gallery. The subway is located five blocks from the hotel.

  • 24-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • 9-minute walk to Robson Square
  • 10-minute walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • 20-minute walk to the BC Place stadium
  • 6-minute drive to Seawall, a waterfront path for walking, jogging, and cycling
  • 6-minute drive to the Vancouver Convention Centre
  • 7-minute drive to Kitsilano Beach, a popular, sandy stretch along English Bay
  • 8-minute drive to Stanley Park
  • 8-minute drive to Science World
  • 12-minute drive to the Vancouver Aquarium
