"Best place to stay for cruise."
Everything was top notch in this place. Lobby, service, rooms. We did not get to eat there but I'm sure it would have been great. Perfect location for cruise next morning. Walking distance to many restaurants, coffee places. Try the Flying Pig restaurant close by.
"The Perfect Downtown Pre-Cruise Hotel"
The staff were all amazing, from the bell hop, front desk, staff in the bar and the restaurant. They were full of helpful ideas and did everything to make sure we had an excellent stay. The complementary transfer of our luggage from our room, straight to our cabin on the cruise ship was an unexpected treat! The location right downtown made for an excellent evening out in Gastown, a five minute walk away. An excellent stay.
This is an amazing hotel for business at the convention center or simply for sightseeing pleasure. The views from the Harbor rooms give a full appreciation of the beauty of Vancouver, and yes the sea planes are fascinating. The convention center is steps away, Gastown is just a 5 minute walk, and Granville Island is a short cab ride. The pool and hot tub need to be enjoyed at least once during your stay. I included a picture of me and Bobby Ryan, as the Sens stayed in the hotel while I was there.
"Ideal for cruisers with cash"
We wanted a hotel with easy access to the cruise ship port so the travel agent booked us here. When we got to the desk we found we had a "complimentary upgrade" and it certainly was. The suite was enormous, with a living room, dining area, one bedroom and 2 bathrooms. The main bathroom looked like the ones featured in mega mansions. There was a pretty view of the port and our ship coming in. We found we could go directly to the boarding area from the elevator. The dining room was very attractive, light and open, and the food good. The complimentary breakfast buffet was fine. All the staff were friendly and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pan Pacific. The lobby is spacious and beautiful, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The views of the area are stunning, no matter where in the hotel you are. The location cannot be beat, especially if you have a meeting at the convention center-- no need to go outside, go downstairs and you are in the east building, or walk through an underground passage with lovely First Nations art to the west building. The pool/hot tub area is lovely, and the pool is large enough for lap swimming. The gym was crowded with perhaps older equipment, but more than sufficient for a good workout while traveling. The room was spacious and comfortable, and even included an umbrella-- quite handy for Vancouver. The hotel restaurant (Five Sails) is outstanding.
