Written by | 10 October 2016 | Published in Joomla! Community Magazine - October 2016
The Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre sits in the heart of vibrant Vancouver. Everything the city offers is within walking distance. Many restaurants, shopping, Stanley Park and the iconic Seawall are all a short stroll from the hotel. In 2016 the Wall Centre completed a full renovation to each and every guestroom. We talked to Sean Antonson, who works at the venue, to find more about what it has to offer to attendees who chose to stay there.

What kind of amenities do you find in the rooms?

Guests find in the rooms Wifi/iron and iron board, coffee / tea, power and work desk, station, 55” inch TV, safe and the world-famous Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed.

What kind of features the hotel offers?

The Wall Centre has some great features: a Swimming pool, 2 hot tubs, health Club, 2 restaurants, Starbucks, wifi and, of course, a great location in the city.

How about the food? What kind of cuisine the does hotel offer?

On property, we have Café One with west coast and casual cuisine (seafood, sandwiches, healthy salads etc.) and Bar One with a nice lounge menu and a large selection of Vancouver Craft Beers. Also, we have Vancouver’s largest Starbucks on property.

Is there a Business Center?

We have the complimentary Sheraton Link with 8 computers and printing stations.

How is the public transportation around the hotel?

Excellent! Easy access to all areas of Vancouver and the lower mainland. Canada Line and Expo Line Subway are a 7-minute walk from the hotel. A number of buses pick up and drop off in front of the hotel.

How to get from the airport to the hotel?

Taxi is approximately $30 Canadian or the Canada Line will take you to Granville Street station and guests can walk a short distance to the hotel

Is there anything interesting to do near the hotel?

Vancouver has so much to do in the local area. Commodore Ballroom hosts concerts and Granville Street has a number of pubs, clubs and shows. This area is 2 blocks behind the hotel and easily accessible. 

I’ve never stayed at a Sheraton hotel. What should I expect?

One should expect exceptional architecture, stunning views from many of the guest rooms, a city centre location, superb service and food quality not to mention a professional yet casual and welcoming ambience.

We are glad to be the venue for Joomla World Conference and we welcome you the Sheraton Wall Center!

Welcome to Vancouver!
