Don’t be fooled by The Sutton Place Hotel’s bland facade, for this is one of Vancouver’s most opulent hotels. A grand lobby sets the stage for a swish stay, clad in marble and dripping with crystal chandeliers. All 397 guestrooms are spacious, and those on the top floors of the 21-story tower offer stunning views of the sea and mountains. Crack open the window and take in Vancouver’s fresh air before stepping out to the city’s best shopping, art galleries and restaurants, all within walking distance.
In the Area
Culture vultures will want to check out the Vancouver Art Gallery, within easy walking distance, and over on Robson Street, Vancouver’s shopping district, sample the hyperlocal fare (pork cracklings, bison tongue ravioli, beet and cress salad with black pepper praline) at Forage. No food lover’s trip to Vancouver is complete without a trip to the Granville Island Public Market.
How to Get There
I stayed here for 7 nights recently while in Vancouver for business. I loved my stay here on the 17th floor! The hotel is walking distance to many neighbourhoods and attractions. The staff are all very warm, welcoming and pleasant (although some of the front desk staff could be a bit friendlier). The bed was amazing—I think by far the comfiest bed I’ve ever had at a hotel and such a good sleep. It would be nice if the mini-fridges in the room were slightly bigger and if there was a basic continental breakfast available for guests.
Beautiful hotel, with the nicest rooms and friendliest staff of all places. We have been there before but forgot how great a hotel it is. Where else do you get cookies 'for the road' when leaving? We are planning to go back soon.
Rooms are comfortable. Service was terrific. Location cant get better as its close to everything and an easy train ride to the airport. If I’m being hyper-critical its getting a little tired looking with the small things. (Edges of furniture looking worn, doorknobs loose). But thats the only reason i wouldn’t say its a 5 out of 5.
You do not even have to get in the front door to realise that this hotel is a bit special and rather classy. Smartly dressed doormen greet and open the door for you, and this friendliness yet professionalism was displayed by all the hotel staff From check-in to checkout the staff make your stay a pleasant one. The very helpful concierge desk can point you in the right direction and gave us some great tips during our stays.
We stayed twice during a recent trip to Vancouver and got to try two different room styles. The standard Sutton Room and the Deluxe Suite, the later having a lounge area which was great to chill out in and enjoy the view out over the city. Common to both rooms was the decor, which though not modern, I felt suited the hotels classic style. The rooms were spotless, I even tried to find dust on the top of a picture that hung behind a couch but found none! Top marks to the housekeeping staff!!
The beds were super comfortable, in fact my wife is still talking about how nice they were.
Location wise they are a 10-15 minute walk from the train station if you use that option to go to and from the airport. Robson Street is just around the corner, Davie Street a short walk and the harbor and other attractions within easy walking distance.
An easy five for The Sutton Place and certainly a hotel I would use again when in Vancouver.
Great location, so very comfortable, 18 th corner king room has great views.
Pool and hot tub great for the kids
Restaurant bar is very good
Busy streets so ear plugs are a good idea
Love the doormen.
