Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Convenient location on Robson Street, within walking distance of shops and restaurants
  • Spacious, individually decorated rooms and suites
  • Original art from the Stewart Stephenson Modern Art Gallery showcased throughout the hotel
  • The popular, on-site restaurant is known for its locally sourced produce and innovative cooking
  • Wi-Fi throughout the hotel is free, but paid for in a daily facilities fee
  • Small fitness center has an attached locker room
  • 3,500 square feet of meeting space includes four meeting rooms
  • Comfortable lobby with a fireplace and sculptures
  • Same-day laundry service (for a fee)

Cons

  • Fee for breakfast and valet parking

Bottom Line

The Listel Hotel Vancouver, with 119 guest rooms and 10 one-bedroom suites, is a mid-range property with a sophisticated vibe. Art lovers in Vancouver would have a hard time finding a hotel better decorated with paintings, sculptures, and prints, most of which are on loan from the nearby Stewart Stephenson Modern Art Gallery. The popular Forage Restaurant, which prides itself on a locally-focused menu and non-fussy service, serves three meals a day. Rooms are contemporary with original artwork, high thread-count sheets, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges, but watch out for the daily facilities fee.

Scene

Art gallery meets mid-size hotel

The Listel Hotel Vancouver looks and feels like a cross between a high-end art gallery and a mid-size, mid-range hotel. Walls and spaces are carefully decorated with one-of-a-kind paintings and sculptures; the moving sculpture by the elevators is a big hit with guests. Underneath all the art, the hotel does look a little '90s, but it's clean and well-maintained with a minimalist vibe. Armless purple chairs sit in front of a fireplace. Glass display cases hold pieces on loan from Vancouver's Museum of Anthropology. Most of the guests are older couples visiting Vancouver. Although kids are welcome, the hotel doesn't take special pains to cater to them.

Location

On busy Robson Street

The Listel Hotel is connected via the lobby to the Stewart Stephenson Modern Art Gallery, which loans pieces to the Listel that are on display throughout the hotel. The location on busy Robson Street puts the Listel within walking distance of restaurants, gift shops, and coffee houses. It's also within a five-minute walk of the financial center, which makes it a convenient choice for business travelers. The neighborhood is clean and bustling, and is a popular destination for shoppers. Denman Street, known for its foodie scene, is about a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Rooms

Contemporary, clean, and comfortable

There are 119 rooms and 10 suites at the Listel Hotel Vancouver. Each room has original artwork, and differs in decor, size, and layout. Walls are generally white and carpet is industrial grade. The one-bedroom suites are the most spacious and stylish; some have deep soaking bathtubs and designer furniture. Regular rooms come standard with flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges. Bathrooms consist of shower/tub combos and single sinks, hairdryers, and toiletries. Since the hotel is set back from the street, there's a row of rooftops to look over before the city comes into view from guest room windows.

Features

Forage Restaurant, fitness center, and meeting rooms

Like most hotels of its size, the Listel is a bit short on amenities. Aside from the small fitness center, with its dated cardio equipment and free weights, and the four meeting rooms, Forage Restaurant is wildly popular with local residents and guests; it serves three meals a day (breakfast is not included in the room rate), with a seasonal West Coast twist. There's also a full bar. Same-day laundry service is available for a fee. A daily facilities fee covers Wi-Fi and telephone calls throughout North America.
