Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites
Location, location, location
This hotel was a Hotwire secret deal at about $124 a night for downtown Vancouver. Situated just a 10 minute cab ride from the cruise ships and only a leisurely 10 minute stroll from Stanley Park, this is an ideal location if you want to explore. The hotel is attached to the Denman Mall with a No Frills grocery store if you have a kitchenette. We arrived very early in the morning and although check in time was not until 3 pm the front desk got us into a room before noon. Because they gave us their first clean room, we were upgraded from a double bed room to a suite with a sitting room and kitchenette. The room itself was clean but somewhat dated especially the bathroom. The elevators were unbelievably slow. On the upside, while we waited for our room, we were able to use the laundry facilities ( there were 3 different laundry rooms located on various floors). The cost of a mere toonie per load for wash and a toonie for the dryer was extremely reasonable. Travellers can take an early morning shuttle to the airport or a taxi for about $30. The #5 bus runs past the hotel and downtown.
This is not a ‘fancy’ hotel but has helpful staff and clean rooms.

Spacious room but poor bed
Stayed for only one night before departure of our cruise. The room (#2102) was big enough but my bed was rather uncomfortable because of the mattress. It was torn in its entire length. If our stay would have been longer, I would have asked for another room. Positive wa the free WiFi access.
Good Location But Average Maintainence
This hotel is located close to restaurants and attractions like City cruises. The location is a plus and we got a room with a great view. But the room with a view cant compensate for poor maintenance. They even made us pay for parking which wasn’t mentioned when we booked the room. The room had a lot of dusty surfaces and made me wonder what else isn’t being cleaned. Poor maintenance!!

Great location. Comfortable bed.
I enjoy a good night’s sleep and the bed and pillow are awesome. Staying for 5 nights with two more to go. The bathroom door was squeaky. Called and got a response within minutes.
Kudos to Katrina at checkin – excellent attitude and helpfulness, which is one reason for this top rating.
Great West End location with loads of restaurants, bike rental places and grocery stores. Bus line just minutes away. 7-11 across the street from which you can buy a daypass
This hotel is close to several attractions and activities in Vancouver. English beach is only 2 blocks away, Stanley Park is a 5 minutes walk and you can rent a bike on penman street to go around the park on the sea wall as well as many other areas in vancouver, the vancouver aquarium is in the park. You could always walk to Gastown (45-60 min) using the path along the water uo to canada place and then to gas town.
The hotel is clean, a good restaurant in the hotel, a mall is accessible by the hotel elevator, several little restaurants and coffees around and a staff always willing to help you as a visitor. While you are in Vancouver, spend a few hours at the Granville Island. There is many things to see: public market, house boat, beer tasting at the Granville Island Brewery and much more.
Have a good stay
