Historical Traveller Reviews of Cascadia Hotel
Loved It! Definately Going Back!from Cosette132
Parking is underground and has 2 separate gates. Cars are super safe here, in what is known as the car theft capitol of Canada! I had no worries leaving my car here at all.
The elevators go straight from parking to your room (with key access), so no getting off and switching elevators like other hotels. I really liked this feature.
Check in was smooth and quick. We had a room on the 11th floor overlooking the 711.
I wish I had my camera with me, but I am sure we will stay here again and will get photos.
Our room had 2 queen beds, a large work desk and work chair. FREE internet!!! This was a HUGE bonus since I needed to use my laptop quite a bit while there for work. There was also a loveseat sized sofa. The kitchen had a stovetop, microwave, 12 cup coffee maker, dishwasher and all pots/pans/dishes, etc.. that you could possibly need. Also a small fridge. The only thing that could use improvement is the size of the tv. It was about a 24" tv, and when over on the bed it seemed quite small and far away, but not a big enough deal to prevent me from going back. In room movies were very reasonable at $9 each. I was impressed with this.
Upon arrival there is a basket with coffee/tea and a pkg of microwave popcorn. Nice touch. There was also a jar of hard candies. We only had a couple of them.
Bathroom was on the smaller side, but good water pressure from the shower.
Room was clean and maid service was great. One odd thing was they put 2 plates we used in the dishwasher and ran the dishwasher. What a waste of hydro/water!
On the 2nd floor is the pool, hot tub, breakfast and work out room. There are 2 full change rooms with showers that lead to the pool. The pool is a decent size. I found the water a bit too cool but was ok for a bit. The hot tub was huge and could probably hold 8 people comfortably.
Outside the pool area is a long row of vending machines. One was a freezer machine with frozen dinners, lasagne, etc... and ICE CREAM! We treated ourselves to a tub of Ben & Jerrys at the expensive price of $8.75. The tv type dinners ranged from $2.50 pizza pops to about $5.75 I think. Some decent selections if you are hungry. Also 2 vending machines with typical pop/chips/candy bars.
The breakfast was amazing! I was extremely impressed. I was not expecting it to be so great. There was a nice selection of about 5 or 6 hot dishes (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, french toast, hasbrowns, etc..). They had rotating toasters that you could use for bread, eng. muffins, bagels and waffles. Tons of muffins, croissants, danish. Cereal, hot oatmeal, fruits, yogurt, etc...etc...etc... Also a juice machine with various juices (4 types). Milk (skim & 2%), coffee, tea & hot chocolate. I am sure there are more things but this is all I can remember. I have paid $15.95 at a restaurant for a buffet like this! There is a large and very relaxing room with a nice fireplace and tons of tables and to eat in.
Overall I give this place 5 stars! We will be back!
Avoid Room 2104!from A TripAdvisor Member
Very friendly and the guy doing it explained the
parking and the other facilities in the hotel.
Smack downtown and within walking distance of all downtown Vancouver has to offer.
Room 2104 was billed as being a corner room. Great I thought, only to be disappointed. Yes, it is a corner room. However, if you think that will make it quiet. Think again.
At first I thought the noise was the A/C. So, I didn't think anything about it. The room was very hot when we got in. So put the A/C on and went out.
On the return to the room, it had cooled down. So I switched off the A/C. Every so often the noise would start up and be very loud. Having excluded the A/C as the cause of the noise I mentioned this to the guy on the front desk on our way out for the evening (it was New Year's eve).
The guy on the front desk, said he would have it looked at. You probably can guess where this is heading. On our return at 2ish in the morning, hoping that the noise had been fixed only to be awoken by it. A fitfull night of sleep ensued. Certainly not the "relaxing stay" promised on their website.
The bed and room
This hotel has Marriott's new bedding and it is ok. Not a par with Starwood or Westin. However, comfortable enough.
The room was big and well laid out, with the standard Residence Inn kitchen. It was, however, all looking a bit dated. However, it was clean.
I mentioned our noise problem at check out. The hotel clearly know there is a problem with the room. Or at least that was the impression the person gave me. All he said was "sorry".
On top of that, the bill was wrong. Why do hotels, especially, big chains like Marriott, allow this to happen? The rate we had included cetain things and we had been charged for these. Teh rate was confirmed at check in. They knew the charge. Were they hoping I might not notice? Very, very poor show.
Follow up complaint
I emailed Marriott to give them my feedback on room 2104. It was all "your feedback is very important". However, no compensation nor discount off the next stay. Effectively, tough luck. Lesson, feedback may be important, whether or not they act on it is another question.
Avoid room 2104. Other than that this is an OK hotel. I wont be going back, however, if you aren't in this room it should be a realtively ok stay.
Great Staff, Great Breakfastfrom The_Best_Cooks
Easy walk to Davie street, Yaletown and South False Creek.
The full breakfast that is included is a nice bonus.
The staff's attitude makes all the difference.
Returned for a second stayfrom NorthForWinter
This was something elsefrom A TripAdvisor Member
pretty goodfrom 123me
The hotel is in an excellent location because you can walk everywhere. Sunset Beach was a 5 minute walk one way and Robson St a five minute walk the other way.
The breakfast was nothing spectacular. Scrambled eggs every single day (they were usually cold), and horrible, horrible coffee. We ended up going to the 7-11 across the street everyday for our caffeine fix. There was not much selection, and I think the breakfast could more accurately be called 'continental' rather than a 'buffet'.
All in all, this was simply an 'OK' hotel. The staff was OK, the rooms OK, the breakfast OK. Therefore, if you are looking for something that is unspectacular, the Residence Inn will suit your needs.
The seedier side of Vancouverfrom EmanneercsAllowed
The all-important recreational facilities included a steam room as well as a pool--nice place to hang out, once I figured out how to get to it. (Signage is not the Inn's forte, and I was not the only confused guest, though I may have been the only one who opened the door to the men's room thinking that I'd found my way to the pool. On the positive side, I impressed my family by immediately leading them to the breakfast room the next day--it was one of the places I'd discovered when looking for the pool.)
Breakfast was fine, and we only needed to walk a few blocks to get away from the questionable neighborhood and into the midst of the Robson hubbub. Not a bad place, but for over $200, you should be able to do better.
Good Valuefrom ozymandias69
Staff were helpful and attentive without being intrusive.
Our suite was large(ish) and well cared for and maintained.
Good value for moneyfrom spoutingfish
Top Local Tips for Vancouver
You won't need a car. Vancouver is an easy city to get around. Many things are in easy walking distance, and if you are looking for a exercise, you could stay off of buses and out of cars and ferry boats entirely. The Trolley is a good deal as the tickets are good for two days and include one trip on the ferry. You can hop on and off whenever you want so it's a great way to get around during the day.
Use the Pacific Coach Line Vancouver to Victoria $166 for 2 adults £83. This collects form hotels and also you can get on at the downtown terminal. A return daily ticket to Victoria includes the ferry crossing cost and drops you right in the heart of Victoria only 5 minutes from any Killer Whale trips you may have booked at the harbour or the Royal BC museum. It can work out a lot cheaper just to book the whale trip and this transport separately - although be advised it is a long day and if you want to see the Butchart gardens you may want to pay the extra and go on an organised trip or set off earlier or try an work it out with these guys as they go there as well. Prince of Whales whale trip was excellent. $188 for 2 adults £94 - all sounds like a lot of money but for the experience it seems like nothing.
Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant BEAUTIFUL VIEW of the city from all sides - go at sunset and stay into the evening so you can see it both day and night. Food is expensive, but delicious. We had the Lobster Tortelloni and the Ahi Tuna and drinks. The drinks were not exceptional for the price- stick with wine or beer.
