We stayed in a fully self-contained apartment. The hotel is a little old and tired but it was perfect for our needs, and because it is not new/trendy it was much more reasonably priced for the area. We had a comfy bed, a decent bathroom, a workable kitchen and space to sit down. We had a limited view of the beach from our room. Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a view. We were able to walk to a plethora of delicious food outlets, the beach, and Stanley Park. The staff are helpful if you ask for specific help, eg. they helped us catch the local bus. However they are not the type of staff who pander to your every need/whim so don't expect them to recognise that you have an issue! We arrived at 7am after a 14 hour flight, and although we couldn't check in, we were able to leave our bags, and were able to get an early check-in around midday.

At Denman and Pendrell, as a tourist you will love the cafes, bars, night life, parks, and beach all 2 minutes from the front door. However the hotel is quite old and in serious need of a facelift. The halls smell funky and the lobby is creepy. It appears by the signage to cater to Asian persons. The staff was very nice, the room was huge with a separate full kitchen complete with dishes. It was quiet and safe. Ifyou are not spending alot of time in the hotel, it’s fine.

We chose this hotel (4 nights)both for the location and the cheap price per night. We decided that we would prefer to spend our money on sightseeing and shopping and this hotel was only around $105AUD per night. It was the beat decision we made. Right in the midst of the Denman St shops and about 200m to the water. We had room 123 which was a corner room that looked out over the bay. It was a small apartment with a double and single in the main room plus another double in the 2nd bedroom (which we didn’t use). Kitchen with microwave, oven, cooktop, kettle, toaster and coffee maker - amazing! Coffee machine in the lobby for hotel guests to use (free) and hotel offered waffles and toast (complimentary) also. We chose to cook our own breakfast. Heaps of great restaurants all within walking distance. Bus stop right outside the front door which was so easy to use. You can ‘tap’ your credit card when you get on the bus ($3 each trip or $10 for all day) we were told that we could only tap on for one person each tome, so ended up having one of us travel for free every time. Owners were lovely and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. Coin laundry available to use at $2 a wash and $2 to dry. Cabs easy too. Great find if you are looking to travel on a budget and stay right in the heart of Vancouver.

I booked in this hotel based on cost, reviews and it being within a reasonable cab distance from the Canada Place cruise terminal. Just looking for a place to rest overnight. Found the accommodations to be quite sufficient and did not experience the "road noise" as read in other reviews. Bed was comfortable, bathroom facility with tub/shower was fine and the room had a small kitchen we never used. Internet connection was easy to connect to. Staff at the front desk were both friendly and efficient. Knowing we were getting on a cruise ship at lunch time, we are not interested in breakfast but did notice that they hotel provided bread and toaster waffles for breakfast along with coffee. One 4 slice toaster - there was a wait to use it. As for transportation, the cab fare to the hotel is a fixed price and our fare plus tip ran $47. Our cab fare (including tip) to Canada Place was $20. Most difficult portion of the trip was catching a cab to the cruise terminal. The hotel called and requested cabs for us and other guests but on "cruise day" when they arrive is a function of how busy they are. The hotel called the cab company and requested a cab for us at 10 am. We were finally able to flag a cab down as the one requested never arrived by 10:45. I could have booked us at a hotel much closer to the cruise terminal at a much higher cost. For what we needed, the English Bay Hotel was fine.

Spent 4 nights in lovely Vancouver. Stayed at English Bay Hotel. Wonderful. Such a great location near the bay and beach and Stanley Park. Many restaurants, shops and amenities all in close walking distance. The room was huge with full kitchen. Beds comfortable. There is no breakfast but they have coffee machine plus offer free toast and waffles in the morning- very nice. The staff here is exceptional- they go out of their way to be helpful. If I return to Vancouver, I will stay here for sure 🤗!
