A large 4-star hotel in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbourhood, the Pinnacle Harbourfront is a full-service hotel that’s often used for meetings and events.
HOTEL REMAINS OPEN
The Pinnacle has remained open throughout the COVID-19 health crisis. Its restaurants closed in mid-March until further notice due to the coronavirus, and it suspended its swimming pool and fitness centre operations. The hotel itself, however, never closed.
As of June 17th, 2020, the hotel is still open. The swimming pool and fitness facilities, however, remain closed. Hopefully they’ll be able to reopen soon! The hotel’s restaurant though, the P2B Bistro, is now again open for dine-in services.
For a list of other Vancouver hotels, including ones that have closed as a result of the coronavirus, see our article about Downtown Vancouver Hotels.
Vancouver’s Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel
The Pinnacle Hotel building has been an iconic part of Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbourhood for several decades. In 2015 it was rebranded and added to the Pinnacle hotel group.
The Pinnacle’s Location
Located at 1133 West Hastings Street, the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront is situated right in Coal Harbour. Many of its rooms have great views of Burrard Inlet, the city and North Shore Mountains.
Not to be confused with the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown (which is a completely different hotel located practically across the street), the Pinnacle Harbourfront is also close to some of Vancouver’s most significant places of interest.
About two blocks north of the hotel is the Coal Harbour waterfront, and just a block or two east is the Vancouver Convention Centre and Canada Place (the latter of which is home to the very popular FlyOver Canada tourist attraction).
The hotel is also close to the seawall which starts near the Convention Centre and is a famous walking and cycling path in Vancouver. From the Convention Centre, the seawall winds around the shoreline of Stanley Park and eventually connects with English Bay and Kitsilano.
Also close to the Pinnacle Harbourfront are Gastown and Granville Street. Granville Street is the city’s entertainment centre famous for nightlife and shopping. Gastown, meanwhile, is known for its historic character, tourist shops and great restaurants.
Hotel Rooms and Amenities
There are about 440 rooms at the Pinnacle Harbourfront. Each room features floor-to-ceiling windows that open, complimentary Wi-Fi and Keurig coffee makers.
There are also pet-friendly rooms available for an extra charge. If booked in advance, the hotel can provide pet beds and food bowls.
Amenities available for guests include free high-speed Internet, an indoor pool, gym with weights and cardio equipment, sun deck, the P2B Bistro & Bar and complimentary bikes. The hotel also has meeting rooms for conferences and an 8000 square-foot ballroom.
The P2B Bistro & Bar is the on-site restaurant at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront. It gets good ratings and uses fresh, sustainable and local ingredients in their dishes. In good weather guests can enjoy their food either inside or outside on the patio with views of the ocean and the North Shore Mountains.
Tips and Advice
Below are some tips and suggestions to help you make the most out of your experience at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront.
TIP #1: StayVancouverHotels.com is a website that specializes in downtown Vancouver hotel accommodations. They offer very competitive rates – sometimes extraordinarily good rates in fact – and with every reservation you get some kind of perk (like a Starbucks gift card or discounted tickets to an event). See our article about the website or click StayVancouverHotels.com for more details.
TIP #3: An especially good time to check out the P2B Bistro & Bar is during the Dine Out Vancouver Festival that runs from mid-January until the beginning of February. That’s when hundreds of Vancouver-area restaurants offer exceptionally good menu deals. In past recent years, if you ate at the P2B Bistro & Bar during the festival and at its two sister restaurants in North Vancouver’s Shipyards District – the Lobby and Pier 7 – you got a bonus $25 gift certificate (which has made it one of the festival’s number one best deals).
TIP #4: If you’re looking for a conveniently-located hotel, the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront is a good one. It’s close to the Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada Place, the cruise ship terminal and Waterfront Station (which is the city’s most important hub for public transit). There are also lots of great restaurants in the area.
TIP #5: If you’re looking for a venue for an event or meeting, the Pinnacle is a good place for that too. The hotel has a large ballroom as well as twenty or so meeting rooms. It’s also competitively priced and used regularly by lots of groups (including the Vancouver Board of Trade from time to time).
TIP #6: The hotel offers complimentary bicycles, which is great! The seawall is nearby and a terrific place to ride a bike, and Stanley Park is just a 15-minute ride away. Bike helmets are mandatory in British Columbia, so take your own if you don’t want to use a borrowed one. Also, it’s good to know that Hornby Street isn’t too far away and it has a dedicated bike lane that runs from north to south through the heart of the city.
