A new look for the YWCA Hotel
Though the floral décor at the YWCA Hotel was beloved by many, it was time our 155 rooms got an update! The new look is bright, clean and modern.
Recently, our Hotel was selected as the Silver Winner in the 2013 Social EnterPrize Awards, a cross-Canada celebration to recognize and celebrate excellence in social entrepreneurship sponsored by the Trico Charitable Foundation in Calgary. The Hotel was chosen as a leading model of social enterprise and social purpose business in Canada.
Some guest comments from this past summer:
“The front desk staff were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make my stay great. ... If you are looking for a clean, reasonably priced, safe place in downtown Vancouver, with 5 star front desk staff, then this is the place for you. And the best part? Your money goes back into the community helping women and their families.” - Victoria, BC

“Stayed here with sister. We each had a single room and shared a bathroom. Overall was a bargain for what we got and was a great location and easy for everything. Special comment however about Pat on the front desk. She was super friendly on arrival, really helpful on suggestions of where to go and just was a great welcoming receptionist. Well done!” - Glasgow, UK
