This was our first visit to Vancouver, so we wanted to stay in a central location within walking distance to all of the sites. Hotel Blu was perfect! It was easy to get to from YVR on the Canada Line SkyTrain, with the City Centre stop only about 6 blocks away. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel was very clean with nice amenities, including free bike and helmet rentals which we took advantage of. If we were to visit Vancouver again, we would definitely stay here!

My family and I stay here last summer and were very happy with the service and cleanliness of room. They upgrade up to a suite on the last night which was very nice. The only down was the wall to the bathroom was entirely glass . Luckily, you can close the blinds. There's no breakfast but location is close to many restaurants.

Pros: It's close to a lot of bars, restaurants, bc place, and a variety of other things to do.
Hotel check in was easy and quick. A lot of good places to eat are near by. If your using public transit, nearby bus stops are close and so is the light rail system. Beds were nice, as well as the room itself.

Superb Facilities

Pros: Excellent and attentive staff who were courteous, friendly and professional. They offered suggestions on restaurants and activities.
Cons: Maybe an onsite restaurant or bar
Location: Central location within easy walking to Gastown, Chinatown and Yaletown. Catch Hop On - Hop Off to visit Stanley Park and Granville Island
Located within easy walking of the many areas of interest. Restaurants nearby were priced within reason for the area and had very friendly and efficient wait-staffs. Cabs were dispatched to the hotel within minutes when we needed to travel outside the walking "zone" and the hotel provided transportation when we needed it. It was an enjoyable vacation to Canada and I would recommend the Hotel Blu, Bogart's Restaurant and use of Hop-On-Hop-Off to anyone visiting the Central Vancouver area.

Very nice hotel

Pros: Clean, helpful staff
Cons: There needs to be a place for people to gather outside the room. Because there is no restaurant or lounge/bar, there should be a deck/patio spot.
Location: It was on a Main Street with stores and restaurants. It was a bit of a walk to bus/Skytrain. We were very happy to find Bogarts restaurant next door
Hotel BLU was a very nice place to stay in Vancouver. Hotel was clean and quite secure. Front desk was helpful but seemed new to this location. Missed having a restaurant in the hotel, but was aware when booking that this was so.

Hotel was fine, not the Valet Parking

Pros: Room
While the room was fine the valet parking ran our brand new car into a pillar while parking. This put a damper on what was supposed to be a getaway without the kids. Now we get to deal with their insurance to try and get it fixed in the US. If this goes smoothly will update our rating, but it usually doesn't.

Now we need a new bed at home!

Pros: Location, staff, bed!
Cons: I can't think of a single thing!
Location: Walking distance to shops, restaurants, stadium, Gastown, Canada Line public transport, grocery. Glad we didn't rent a car.
This was hotel was fantastic. Very clean. Perfect location, central to everything. Lots of restaurants/shops/activities, all within walking distance (the whole city is extremely pedestrian friendly!). Staff were attentive, friendly, and knew the area very well and were able to make recommendations for food/activities. But most of all, the bed was amazing. My husband and I have traveled together for over 20 years and not once have we raved about the comfort of a hotel bed, until now. In fact, we commented when we got home and into our own bed that perhaps we need to start thinking about a new bed because we were so spoiled by the great bed at the Hotel Blu! Would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend this hotel to others. Oh, and the third floor balcony room is worth the upgrade, it's really great to be able to sit outside in the mornings and evenings when on vacation!

The Hotel Blu is perfect for travelers.

Pros: This hotel was clean, had a great staff and was perfectly located.
Cons: There were no improvements that I could see that needed to be made.
Location: The Rogers Arena and BC Place are just 2-5 mins walk away. You can walk to Chinatown, Gastown, Canada Place, the ferries to take you to Granville.
The hotel is super clean- you can wake barefoot on the floors and not get dirty feet. It has nice luxuries like sleepers and robes. There is plenty of room for clothes. You can adjust your own heat. The staff is always friendly and easy to deal with. The hotel wifi is the best hotel wifi I ever used. I was able to watch videos and Skype on it. There is even a tablet for you to use if you forget yours at home. Everything is accessed with a key card which gives you added security that not just anyone is wandering the halls. The hotel is perfectly located next to great restaurants, arenas and is close to all the major attractions. Seeing this hotel is still young it has a "brand new, clean" feeling to it. Which is wonderful.
