Completing my Bucket List

Times Square Suites Hotel – Vancouver

As much as I love traveling, sometimes I miss my home comforts which a hotel can’t usually provide.  The Time Square Suites Hotel, in the West End of Vancouver offers the benefits of being a hotel, whilst also feeling like a home.


Times Square Suites was originally an apartment building, but is now is available for short and long stays.

It is just a short walk to Stanley Park, and located on Robson Street.  You won’t have to walk far to find great shops and dining options.

We stayed in a one bedroom suite, more than big enough for the two of us, and with an additional sofa bed in the living room perfect if you had extra guests.

This room comes with:
– Bedroom with queen size bed and TV
– Full kitchen with tableware and cookware
– Washer/dryer
– Standup balcony off living area
– TV, Stereo, DVD in living room
– One bathroom with tub/shower combination


The first thing we did on arrival was pop on a load of washing!  Much needed half way through our trip.

I loved having access to a kitchen as well, and just across the road was a supermarket.  Here we picked up some breakfast options for our early mornings.


On the roof top is a wonderful area perfect for a relaxing evening.  The BBQ is available for all guests to use also.


We met with Jacqui, the General Manager on our second night, and enjoyed a few glasses of wine out here whilst discussing a shared love for travel, and the best things about Vancouver.


One thing that stood out to me the most, was how important recycling is to the hotel.  Each room is equipped with bags suitable for different recycling options.  You leave these outside your front door for collection each day.

To support their green initiative, housekeeping is available if requested by placing a sign outside your door.

Of course WIFI is available (super important) and there is a Starbucks right by the front door.


Whilst here I used the opportunity to relax a little, and catch up with some blogging.  Something a regular hotel wouldn’t have provided me with the comfort to do.

If you’re looking for a home away from home in Vancouver, Times Square Suites Hotel is the perfect place to be.

A huge thank you to Jacqui and the staff for the warm welcome, and making us feel right at home.
