Only 3 minutes' walk from the convention centre, the smoke-free and pet-friendly Pan Pacific offered very good room rates on the day I compared the 10 closest hotels to the Vancouver Convention Centre. It's also a very popular hotel with guests who have stayed and provided reviews. Guests online seem to rave about it, pointing out how it compares favourably to other hotels in Vancouver. Guests liked relaxing in their piano bar, said that their restaurants serve very good food, and that the rooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and well-appointed (rooms come with a mini-bar and refreshment centre). They spoke of the best views in the city at this hotel, overlooking Stanley Park, the harbour and the Lion's Gate bridge. Some mentioned that the beds were very comfortable, and one guest in particular said that the hotel supplies an in-room safe large enough to hold a 17" laptop computer. Another guest enjoyed the sea view promenade that encircles the hotel. Club Level rooms come with free breakfast, Wi-Fi, coffee, tea and evening hors d'oeuvres. There's a saltwater rooftop pool, hot tub, fitness centre, salon and spa at this hotel. Parking is an extra $35 to non-club members and Wi-Fi is either $4.95 or $14.95 (depending on speed and duration). This hotel accesses an underground path to the convention centre.

Highly praised downtown Vancouver all-suite hotel near Gastown with free Wi-Fi & city views
Pros
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free breakfast, free evening hors d'oeuvres (Signature Suites only)
  • The staff were frequently complimented for their friendly and accommodating service
  • Many guests found the location convenient for accessing downtown attractions on foot
  • Many reviewers described their rooms as clean and well-maintained
  • Several guests described their beds as comfortable
Cons
  • A few guests thought that the room decor appeared dated
  • Self parking ranges from $28-$33 and valet parking is $37 per night including tax
The Delta has impressive ratings and a super high recommendation rate. Although it's not the closest hotel to the convention centre at an 8-minute walk, I thought it offered good value for the dollar in comparison to the other hotels on this list. Wi-Fi is free here, which is always appreciated by guests and Signature Suites get breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres included in the room rate. Parking is expensive and runs from $28 to $33 for self-parking (valet is $37), but according to an online reviewer there is a DPS lot across the street for half the price of parking at the hotel. Guests seemed to really enjoy their stays here and mentioned the delicious food at the on-site lounge, the outstanding breakfast, great sleeps in their comfy beds, and spacious, modern, well-maintained rooms. The central location received very high marks as well as the staff for being attentive, friendly and efficient. A few guests described the in-room decor as dated and this may account for the lower price point in this area of downtown Vancouver where the prices can be quite high.
