Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient downtown location on lively Robson Street
  • All rooms have balconies and many have sweeping city views
  • Rooms are large and light, with several large windows and sliding glass doors
  • Contemporary room decor: blond wood, flat-screen TVs, crisp linens and purple bed throws
  • Indoor pool, Jacuzzi, and sauna
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

Bottom Line

The location is the highlight of this mid-range hotel, situated alongside the restaurants and bars on Robson Street and within walking distance of numerous Downtown Vancouver attractions. The contemporary rooms are spacious and bright, and have balconies, but don't get too excited about the amenities -- even though the hotel has a fitness center and indoor pool, they're both small and showing their age. Since our visit, the lobby and front desk have been renovated, and ABODE restaurant has opened.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On Robson Street, near the liveliest area of Downtown Vancouver

The Blue Horizon Hotel is on a central street in Downtown Vancouver, alongside restaurants and bars.

Downtown Vancouver is the 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, Robson Square -- just a 5-minute walk from the hotel -- is always alive, featuring restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

  • 26-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • 4-minute drive or 10 minutes via public transportation to Stanley Park, a 1000-acre oasis with gardens, beaches, wildlife, and the seawall (a path along the waterfront)
  • 5-minute walk to Robson Square
  • 5-minute walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • 7-minute walk to Burrard SkyRail line
  • 7-minute drive to the Museum of Vancouver, or 19 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to the BC Place Stadium, home to numerous Canadian teams and where some events from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games took place, or 17 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to Science World
  • 9-minute drive to the Kitsilano beach community, or 18 minutes via public transportation
  • 9-minute walk to the Vancouver Convention Center
  • 12-minute walk to Harbor Green Park on the water
