Business feel with large lobby that gets crowded at times
Hotels in the Hyatt chain are popular with business travelers, and the Hyatt Regency Vancouver is no exception. It's housed in a tall building on a busy street with glass revolving doors and digital screens by the elevators that allow guests to select their floor before getting on. The lobby is spacious and lacks decor beyond a few potted plants and brown leather chairs, giving it an impersonal ambiance. Despite its large size, the lobby can get a bit hectic during peak check-in and check-out times. There’s a Starbucks and seating areas on the lower lobby level, and the Mosaic Grille on the floor above the lobby is exposed behind a glass balustrade.
On a busy street next to a mall, a short walk to the Vancouver Convention Centre
The hotel is on a busy street, next to a shopping center with fast food options and chain stores. The Vancouver Convention Centre is an eight-minute walk away. The Seawall, a jogging and cycling path that lines Vancouver’s waterfront, is also within walking distance. Vancouver International Airport is less than 30 minutes away by car or public transportation.
Spacious, modern rooms with natural slate bathrooms
Rooms are spacious, sleek, and have a functional, business feel, with modern multi-shade gray carpeting and large headboards the color of cherry wood. All come furnished with big desks and flat-screen TVs that can be angled for viewing from the desks. Bathrooms have natural gray slate floors and matching tiles on the walls of the shower/tub combos. The temperature control is motion activated and shuts off when guests are out. All rooms have coffeemakers with Starbucks coffee, iPod docks, and Wi-Fi (for a fee).
Restaurant serving local fare, plus a chic bar, outdoor pool, and 24-hour fitness center
The hotel has a popular restaurant, the Mosaic Grille, which serves meals made primarily from locally sourced ingredients. The separate Grain Tasting Bar has a chic wraparound bar counter and huge windows. A Starbucks is also on-site. The fitness center has a variety of machines and is open 24 hours a day. Meeting rooms are available for business travelers and pets are allowed for a fee. There's also a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, and a few lounge chairs on a patio with views of surrounding office buildings. Guests staying in Regency Club rooms have access to a private lounge with coffee, juices, and snacks.
