  • Renovated lobby with artistic and comfortable decor

  • Slow Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre is a mid-range 197-room hotel for business travelers and families looking to keep costs low. A renovation in 2014 brought fresh furniture, paint, and carpet throughout the hotel -- along with a revamped lobby decorated in natural accents. Rooms are spacious and spotless. Keurig coffeemakers are a nice touch, but the phones and alarm clocks are ancient. Convenient features include an indoor swimming pool, on-site restaurant, and free Wi-Fi. The neighborhood is pretty bland (although Broadway is packed with restaurants, bars, and coffee shops), but it's only a two block walk to the Sky Train. Check rates at budget-friendly Days Inn Vancouver Downtown for a better location, but you'll lose the spacious rooms and features of the Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre.

Scene

16-story chain hotel with dated facade

The Vancouver Centre's facade consists of a tall cement tower with a neat row of windows and balconies. It looks a bit blocky and dated, but inside the scene is much warmer and fresher. A renovation in 2014 brought wood paneled walls, white tile floors, and attractive clusters of green, contemporary furniture. The space isn't fancy, but it is comfortable and spotlessly clean. Stages Bistro is well-lit by natural light and set with four-top tables surrounded by upholstered green armchairs. Most visitors at the hotel are here on business or looking to save money while exploring Vancouver.

Location

Two blocks from the Sky Train

Map of Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre

The Vancouver Centre's location isn't super convenient for those who want to explore the city on foot, but the neighborhood is clean and safe with restaurants and a few developments nearby. It's two miles from the Vancouver Pacific Central Train Station and only two blocks to the Sky Train, which takes passengers downtown in about five minutes, or to the airport in about 20 minutes. Parking comes with a fee.

Rooms

Spacious and spotless with a few added touches

There are 197 rooms and suites at the Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre. Each is spacious and clean with some nice amenities and better than average design style. The color palette is done in tones of green and brown with neutral carpeting and white walls. Chocolate-brown headboards and green floral armchairs add a little drama. Flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and Keurig coffeemakers are nice modern comforts, but some alarm clocks and telephones could use an update. Windows aren't that large, and the floor lamps look dim. Standard bathrooms consist of single sinks and shower/tub combos shielded with a white curtain. Views of Vancouver are naturally best from the top floors.

Features

Stages Bistro and Lounge, indoor pool, and a fitness center and business center

The Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre has some convenient features for families and business travelers. The most popular spot in the hotel is probably the rooftop swimming pool with its glass ceiling and pool deck. A spacious fitness center has Precor equipment and space to stretch, along with a weight bench. There's a ballroom and meeting spaces, plus a 24-hour business center. Stages Bistro and Lounge provides meals and a full bar throughout the day. A breakfast buffet is provided for a fee.
