Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

The Shangri-La offers uber-luxe digs in Downtown Vancouver. Catering to the business traveler (mainly due to its location), the hotel's large rooms feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with DVR, bedside controls for curtains and lights, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking downtown. But the massive granite-and-marble bathrooms are the real highlight, featuring separate showers and tubs, as well as flat-screen TVs. The hotel also has a Jean-Georges restaurant and a hip spa, both of which are extremely pricey and only add to the hype.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Downtown Vancouver, near the Vancouver Convention Center

The Shangri-La is in the eastern part of Downtown Vancouver, adjacent to the Bentall Centre Mall and within walking distance of the Vancouver Convention Center. There is also a SkyRail line just a couple blocks away.

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, Robson Square is always alive, featuring restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

  • 27-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • 3-minute walk to the Bentall Centre Mall
  • 5-minute walk to Harbor Green Park
  • 5-minute walk to Burrard SkyRail line
  • 6-minute walk to Robson Square
  • 6-minute walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • 7-minute walk to the Vancouver Convention Center
  • 6-minute drive to Stanley Park, where the seawall is located and numerous paths, or 20 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute drive to Science World
  • 7-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 15 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute drive to the Museum of Vancouver, or 20 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to the Kitsilano beach community, or 20 minutes via public transportation
