Hotel Review: EXchange Hotel Vancouver

Fancy Nanc-ista

Stylish, elegant, and luxury — are the perfect three words to describe the EXchange Hotel in Vancouver. BC. Situated in the heart of downtown — this hotel is a must gem to consider when visiting Vancouver.

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of staying at EXchange Hotel Vancouver. Given it was my very first visit to Vancouver, and I did not know much about the city, I’d say EXchange Hotel Vancouver was a great choice — it was walking distance to many things — convenience stores, restaurants, shopping.


The staff here at EXchange were top-notch and memorable. As soon as you arrive, there is always someone to greet you and help you with your luggage/cab/etc. which I loved that little touch! When I arrived, a bellhop immediately helped me and directed me to the front desk area, located on the 2nd floor – which is not obvious if he had not shown me. The check-in was quick and easy and before I knew it, I was already headed to my room.


We stayed in the Superior Queen room — very spacious and chic. The room included a sofa-pull out, a mini-fridge, and a beautiful city view!

Lindt Chocolate Shop

Located on the first floor and to the right of the entrance is one of my most favorite chocolate brands. If you haven’t heard or try it, I recommend you go! This location also had drinks to purchase as well.

The hotel also offers guests with in-room dining service.
