Fodor's Expert Review Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver

845 Burrard St., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6Z 2K6, Canada See on Map

Enjoy downtown elegance at the Sutton Place Hotel, located right in the center of downtown shopping and restaurants. The hotel has the kind of classic elegance that makes up for its somewhat dated decor, and the easy access to other neighborhoods and popular tourist destinations make it a great choice for travelers who want to cover a good chunk of the city during their stay.

Before you book your room at the Sutton Place Hotel, make sure to check their website for deals—the hotel often has fantastic deals on their website if you book 15 days or more in advance.


Downtown can be a noisy place, but you'd never guess when staying at the Sutton Place Hotel. The soundproofing in the guest rooms is top-notch, which means you'll get a great night's sleep—no matter how much hustle and bustle is going on outside.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Dogs are allowed at the Sutton Place Hotel for an additional fee, but you can't leave them unattended in your room—so only bring the pups if you're comfortable having them with you 24/7.


The bathrooms feature gorgeous marble counters and come stocked Gilchrist & Soames toiletries—perfect for pampering yourself during your visit.


The neutral color palette, plush carpeting, marble floors, and gold accents definitely fit in with the elegant European vibe of the rest of the hotel. There's plenty of seating, so grab a seat in one of the plush chairs while you're waiting for your travel companions.


The pool, which is open daily from 5:45 am to 9:45 pm and has large windows that look out onto the garden, is a great place to relax. Swim a few laps, soak in the jacuzzi, or hit up one of the hotel's two steam rooms.


Vida Spa specializes in Ayurvedic treatments, which are indulgent—but definitely on the pricier side. Swedish massage, facials, and a variety of beauty treatments are also available for the ultimate experience in relaxation.


The fitness area at the Sutton Place Hotel has everything you need to get your sweat on, from basic gym machines to free weights. If you need more individual attention, request a one-on-one training session with one of the hotel's fitness instructors.


Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar is an upscale restaurant specializing in—you guessed it—oysters and other seafood. If shellfish isn't your thing, don't worry—there's plenty of salads, sandwiches, and other staples to round out the menu.


Cozy up in one of the plush leather armchairs at the Gerard Lounge, where you can sample from their high-end selection of brandies and scotch next to the fireplace.


Getting Around

The Sutton Place Hotel offers valet parking at $39.50 per night, but you can definitely get around downtown on foot or by using public transportation. Walk 7 minutes to Burrard Station and catch the SkyTrain or hop on a bus (there are five bus stops within five minutes of the hotel).


Grab a burger at The Winking Judge Pub (1-minute walk), where you can enjoy classic burger combos like the Old Ben Burger with aged cheddar, bacon, and southwest sauce while you people watch on the patio. For a more nostalgic feel, head to The Templeton (10-minute walk), a classic American diner complete with great breakfast food, to-die-for milkshakes, and old-fashioned jukeboxes.


Head over to Cinema Public House (6-minute walk) for a great craft beer selection—including a number of local British Columbia brews on tap. If you're in the mood for something a bit stronger, try Homer St. Cafe and Bar (9-minute walk), which has innovative takes on classic cocktails, like the Jasmine, their twist on the classic Negroni with Aviation gin, Campari, Cointreau, and lemon.
