The Lonsdale Quay Hotel is a boutique hotel located at North Vancouver’s waterfront. It’s in the same building as the Lonsdale Quay Public Market.
Lonsdale Quay Hotel
Set right on the waterfront of Vancouver Harbour, the Lonsdale Quay Hotel is a smaller but fairly modern hotel. The hotel features 70 rooms ranging from standard accommodations up to the Carrie Cates suite which has its own in-room Jacuzzi tub.
The last time we checked the hotel got about 4 stars on TripAdvisor. Guests like the hotel’s waterfront views (from some but not all of the rooms), the general location and the lack of carpet in many of the rooms.
Amenities available at the Lonsdale Quay Hotel include the Mix Breakfast Lounge on the 3rd floor that serves breakfast. There is also a fitness centre.
Parking at the hotel costs about $20 per night. The hotel was also charging an extra $10 per night cleaning fee for a while due to COVID-19 (and the surcharge may or may not still exist).
Where is the Hotel?
The Lonsdale Quay Hotel’s address is 123 Carrie Cates Court. It is situated directly above the public market. The hotel occupies the 3rd and 4th floors of Lonsdale Quay.
The hotel is close to both the SeaBus and the Lonsdale Quay public bus transit hub. The SeaBus provides easy access to downtown Vancouver while the busses connect with the rest of the North Shore, from Deep Cove to West Vancouver.
One of the best things about the Lonsdale Quay Hotel is its proximity to some of the North Shore’s most popular attractions. The hotel is situated above Lonsdale Quay and the public market there. It is within walking distance of all major attractions in the Lower Lonsdale area.
Lonsdale Quay and Public Market
Known for its iconic Q tower, Lonsdale Quay is a landmark feature of the North Vancouver waterfront. The area has a walking path along the ocean that connects Waterfront Park to the Shipyards District and everything in between.
Within Lonsdale Quay is the Lonsdale Quay Public Market. The market features over 60 vendors selling a variety of goods and services. Most of the vendors in the market are independently-owned and operated, which makes shopping there especially unique and enjoyable.
The Shipyards is an interesting neighbourhood in the Lower Lonsdale area. The area features attractions such as Shipbuilders Square, which hosts concerts in the summer, as well as the Pipe Shop, which is a restored historic building.
One of the newest additions to the district is Shipyards Commons which is home to the biggest outdoor skating rink in Metro Vancouver (although it didn’t operate in the winter of 2020/21 due to COVID-19).

Lower Lonsdale Area
Other popular sites in the Lower Lonsdale area include the Polygon Gallery and Museum of North Vancouver (which is scheduled to open in 2021). There are also lots of shops and restaurants in the area.
