Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites
Great location, large rooms with dated decor.
I enjoyed this hotel. The size of the rooms we stayed in was great, the room looked a little bit dated but the beds were comfortable. There is plenty of room to hang out as well as a kitchen with cutlery, storage and a large fridge and sink. We got a room with a balcony on the tenth floor that overlooked the city, you could even see a peak of the ocean.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The worst part about the stay here was the amount of time spent waiting for the busy elevator. A minor issue, but something to keep in mind.
The location is wonderful. It’s a short walk away from English Bay Beach and there are plenty of great restaurants around the area. Most places we wanted to see/get to (Stanley park, the Art Gallery, the ferry to get to Granville Island) was under a half hour walk away.
PROS: Good value for pricey Vancouver in a nice, quiet & convenient area. Just 5 blocks from Stanley Park, located on the super-quiet, residents+bicycles-only Comox St. Very spacious, albeit dated, rooms w/kitchen, living area, sliding-glass patio. This property houses hotel rooms & longer-term residents on higher floors in the same building. Comfortable bed. Friendly service. CONS: Not much help at the front desk.. easily overwhelmed by larger groups. They advertise free internet access, but it only worked for the first 30 minutes of our stay. Completely offline or, at best, unbearably slow (websites time-out) the rest of the time. If you need fast & reliable internet access during your stay.. look elsewhere.
Good location but older rooms
We would recommend this hotel because of location near Stanley Park and English Bay. Convenient to restaurants and attractive walkable neighborhoods. Under building parking garage. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom however badly needed updating. Peeling wallpaper, chipped paint, dingy fixtures. Biggest negative was VERY SLOW internet connection.
The building is nice, and our room was totally great. It was really big, with a full kitchen, a sitting area, and a large outdoor balcony. The elevators can be sluggish and are often full, and the parking is a little pricey, though competitive with other options in the area. The location is great on a quiet side street close to several restaurants and markets, and it’s an easy walk into Stanley Park. It’s also a relatively short walk to most of the sites around downtown Vancouver.
We thought the hotel was great! Would definitely stay there again.
We were relocated to this hotel by another hotel we had booked with due to a room issue, and we were very happy staying there. Room was spacious & clean, and the beds were very comfortable – which was a nice surprise as I find hotel beds can be very firm & uncomfortable usually. Staff were very friendly & helpful, would definitely stay there again!
