Strolling down Robson Street, you can't miss Hotel Blu at the corner of Cambie Street and Robson Street; when you see the blue lighting and details, you'll know you're at the right spot.
Since opening in 2014, Hotel Blu has become a popular place to stay in Vancouver, due to its service, amenities, location and affordable pricing. With a heavy emphasis on sustainability, luxury and technology, Hotel Blu ticks off all of the check marks.

Right outside Hotel Blu's doorstep is Robson Street, one of Vancouver's most well-known streets for its shopping, cafes and restaurants. BC Place, The Vancouver Public Library and a SkyTrain station are all just a stone's throw from the hotel.
Getting around the city from here by foot is a breeze, but Hotel Blu has made it even easier by offering a downtown shuttle and bicycles, both which are free for guests to use.
The Seawall is a short cycle from the hotel, and it's truly one of the best ways to explore the city. The shared shuttle service runs from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., taking guests to their destination in the downtown core.
The hotel offers 24-hour reception, so there's always someone around if need be. Driving to the hotel? They provide guests with free parking and charging stations for electric vehicles, too.
After a workout in the fitness center, relax and unwind in the indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna.
After a day of exploring, a good bed is so important to a good night's sleep. and Hotel Blu has you covered. Each room is equipped with luxurious pillow top mattresses, cozy slippers and bathrobes to help make your stay extra comfortable.
Rooms are complete with a flat-screen television, a desk, seating area, hairdryer, microwave, fridge, Nespresso coffeemaker and a rain shower in the bathroom. Televisions are equipped with Samsung Smart HDTV, so you can surf the Internet or explore widgets. Plus, each room also has a Samsung Galaxy tablet for you to use.
While dry cleaning is available, guests may use a launderette free of charge. Another free perk that the hotel offers is free WiFi throughout the property. That in itself can save you a decent chunk of change.
This sustainable hotel has five green roofs that help insulate the hotel, and also a high-efficiency irrigation system that reacts to the weather and uses the collected rain water to irrigate onto the hotel's plants and shrubs, with little over-spray or under-spray. Pretty neat!
Hotel Blu is a comfortable and convenient hotel that's ideal for those traveling on business or as a family in Vancouver.
