Landis Hotel & Suites is a mid-range hotel that's popular with large families because of its two-bedroom suites with full kitchens, indoor swimming pool, free continental breakfast, and free shuttle to the cruise port. The location is convenient for exploring downtown Vancouver by foot, or the shuttle will drive guests to nearby beaches (no return service). There are occasional complaints of street noise and mildew odors in the rooms. It may be worth comparing rates at the Best Western Plus Downtown Vancouver -- kids under 12 stay free, but the decor is just as generic.
Landis Hotel & Suites looks like a generic '90s hotel -- it's clean and comfortable but nothing special to look at. The lobby includes one red and black wall decorated with a freeform frameless mirror. Red and black leather club chairs provide seating near the white reception desk. There's a mostly unused fireplace and rack of brochures, along with a single computer for guests to use. The indoor swimming pool area looks more modern with recessed wooden ceilings and large windows overlooking a landscaped courtyard. Because of the free shuttle to the port and family-friendly rooms, this property is popular with large groups on their way to and from cruises.
The hotel is located near a busy intersection of Hornby and Burrard streets, one of the major arteries of downtown Vancouver, filled with foodie restaurants and cafes. Robson, the major shopping district, is about a 10-minute walk from the hotel. A 7-Eleven convenience store is located directly across the street. Public transportation is nearby and there's a free shuttle taking guests to downtown attractions, the port, and the beach -- but not back to the hotel. There's a charge for parking on-site.
There are 53 rooms at Landis Hotel & Suites, and all of them are actual suites with more square footage that competitors offer at the same price point. Some dining rooms have airy solarium-like spaces surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows which allow natural light and nice downtown views. Kitchens are equipped with burners, stoves, microwaves, refrigerators and full sets of plates and cooking equipment. Decor is contemporary and a little generic. Think: gray walls, striped curtains, and brown patterned carpet. Wood furniture and glass dining tables are standard. Spacious bathrooms have double sinks and shower/tub combinations. Toiletries are presented in a small basket on the vanity counter.
Indoor swimming pool, continental breakfast, and a fitness center -- but no restaurant or bar
There are some great features at the Landis Hotel & Suites, especially at this price point. The indoor pool is a nice spot year-round. An indoor fitness center is bright and spacious with windows overlooking the manicured courtyard. The space holds Lifefitness cardio machines with individual screens and free weights. The continental breakfast in the morning gets good reviews, though it's often crowded. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel and there's a single computer in the lobby for guests to use. You won't find a restaurant or bar at the hotel but there are almost unlimited choices within walking distance.
