Summary


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

  • 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.

Map of Blue Horizon Hotel

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.
