Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites
Great room and view long waits
We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Our room was on the 34 floor faced the ocean and was beautiful!! Our only complaint was the elevators ! That seems like an odd complaint I know.. But it’s not when you are on the 34th floor. We had to always wait forever for the elevators and they were MUCH too small. They need to renovate, have larger elevators as well as an express elevator that went to the top 10 floors.
We stayed here for five nights for the purpose of visiting the Calgary Stampede. The hotel was lovely. Only five minutes walk there is a train station that takes you right in to the centre of Calgary.
The room and food were lovely. The buffet breakfast is superb and the meals we had in the evening were delicious.
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!!
