A good stay, room was great, good view of the harbour. Very clean room. Easy check in and check out. Friendly staff. Location is great easy to get to and very close to the airport, so car pickup at the end of a vacation is easy. I would stay and fly again!

I come to Vancouver once a month for Business. I always stay at the Pacific Gateway Hotel. They treat me like a welcome guest every time and make my stay feel like coming home. Would not stay any where else in Vancouver!
