Coast Plaza at Stanley Park

Great place to stay if you like to be close to English Bay, waterfront and great restaurants. The staff are wonderful and willing to help with directions, restaurant choices, and much more. Always enjoy staying at the Coast Plaza Hotel on Deman and Comox.

Great value, people, service, location and much more!

I can’t say enough about the Coast Plaza Hotel and Suites. Its located close to Stanley Park and downtown. Surrounded by wonderful eating choices within walking distance. The rooms are wonderful and the views of either Mount Baker or English Bay are spectacular. Staff went above and beyond with friendliness and excellent service. Its an older building but well maintained. I stayed for business purposes and plan on staying again in a couple of months when I visit Vancouver for personal reasons! Highly recommend you give it a try.

It's old, but it's alright

We stayed there for the comfort of the zone. The building IS old and so are the rooms, but they are comfortable, I’m not fond of carpeting and this one I thought was deep. The air conditioning has been adapted for they used to have vents with a central system and they adapted a unit to air condition and heat the room, no big whoop, but comfortable none the less. Great view anyway!

Their wifi was faulty, we had to go to the lobby for better reception.
They have a supermarket and many eateries at walking distance on Denman St.; Robson St. is not far and very trendy, on Robson there’s a Safeway which provided us with goodies for in-room consumption, ready-foods for late night in-room dinners. Their only and main flaw for us, was their taxi service to go to the airport, we waited over an hour along with many other passengers for a unit to arrive.
Not funny, when you are on a time crunch to the airport!

Good Location, Dated Hotel and Rooms

I booked this hotel on Hotwire so knew the area but not which hotel I was going to stay in. I ended up at the Coast Plaza and though it is in a good location- in the West end of Downtown close to English Bay, I was immediately disappointed when entering the hotel. Firstly, the parking is expensive for a self serve ($25 for the night). Second, the hotel itself is in some MAJOR need of updates/renovations. If this were 1978 then I would probably be quite happy with my room. Unfortunately it’s 2014 and I find it sad when a hotel room at a major chain has not caught up with the times. The hotel and room are clean and yes, quite spacious with a kitchenette provided as standard. Too bad the fridge and cupboards have not been updated is 40+ years. I think my alarm clock is from the mid 80′s but the good news is the TV is from the 2010′s.
Internet is shotty – had to change rooms to get adequate signal and it’s still not super fast.

If you can get this place on a super cheap deal then I would say go for it if you just need a place to crash but if you end up paying $150+ a night like I have I think you would be better off at another 3 star chain hotel in the city that has taken the time to adapt to the future.

Be aware of

Hotel is difficult to arrive at on confusing streets- Arriving at night, lost and disorientated, I discovered parking is in an public underground lot under the hotel that appears not to be patrolled. I felt very nervous leaving my new vehicle there. Getting into the hotel from this lot is also cause for concern- You enter through dingy, dark basement corridors. As a woman traveling alone, I did not feel safe. When I expressed my concern to the front desk, I received a dismissive response. Dorm like hallways badly in need of upgrading, or at least, a fresh coat of paint (ditto for the basement corridors), are not inviting. The room, although spacious and clean, was rather disappointing with a view overlooking the roof. This room had a severely, rusted out balcony I felt reluctant to venture out on. The Wi-Fi was not reliable. I booked this hotel through Priceline, which explains, perhaps, why I was placed in a less desirable location. Factor in an additional cost for parking here, as can be anticipated for any Vancouver downtown hotel. On the plus side: The location is a in a culturally diverse neighborhood with a plethora of refreshing,ethnic mom and pop wonderful restaurants right out the door. The walk to the Seawall, English Bay, and Stanley Park is a delight for the senses.
