Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront

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.

It’s a very nice hotel and a popular place for conferences. Close to both the Coal Harbour Seawall and Vancouver Convention Centre, it’s in a prime location. It’s also just a 10-minute walk from the SeaBus and SkyTrains at Waterfront Station. We’ve stayed at this hotel a number of times and have really enjoyed our time there. The P2B Bistro & Bar at the hotel is also really good.

NOTE: A related hotel is the Pinnacle at the Pier in the Shipyards District in North Vancouver. It’s also a fabulous place to stay! Its restaurants are The Lobby (which is inside the hotel) and the Pier 7 Restaurant (which is close by and right on the waterfront).

Vancouver’s Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel

The Pinnacle Hotel building has been a prominent part of Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbourhood for several decades. In 2015 it was rebranded and added to the Pinnacle hotel group.

The hotel has two sister locations – one in Whistler, called the Pinnacle Hotel Whistler Village, and one in North Vancouver, called the Pinnacle at the Pier.

The Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront has 19 floors. On the 19th floor there is Vistas 360 which is an event space with beautiful views of Vancouver’s waterfront. Vistas 360 is the only revolving event space in a Vancouver hotel. (Vancouver’s other famous revolving venue is the Top of Vancouver restaurant next to the Vancouver Lookout which is a popular nearby tourist attraction.)

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 the North Shore Mountains.

To see what the view looks like from the 18th floor of the hotel, check out the above 360-degree photo. If you swipe the photo from side to side you’ll be able to see the hotel, its balcony and the view of the city.

Not to be confused with the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown (which is a different hotel, located across the street and owned by the same parent company), the Pinnacle Harbourfront is close to some of Vancouver’s most significant places of interest.

About two blocks north of the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront is the Coal Harbour waterfront. Just a block or two east are 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. It also connects with English Bay and Kitsilano.

Also close to the Pinnacle Harbourfront are Granville Street and Gastown. Granville Street is the city’s entertainment centre which is famous for nightlife and shopping. Gastown, meanwhile, is known for its historic character, tourist shops and restaurants.



Rooms and Amenities

There are about 440 rooms at the Pinnacle Harbourfront. Each room features floor-to-ceiling windows that open as well as complimentary Wi-Fi and Keurig coffee makers.

To see what a room looks like, check out the above 360-degree photo. Assuming the device you are using is compatible with 360-degree technology, you should be able to swipe the photo from side to side to see the room in all directions. You should also be able to zoom in and out for a better look.

The rooms are comfortable. When we stayed at the hotel we had a room on the 18th floor, so almost at the very top. The room didn’t have a balcony that you could walk out on. It did, though, have glass doors and sort of a ledge you could step on to. It was like a balcony, and around six or so feet long, but only about 12 inches deep. From it we had a nice view of the city. We really liked our room!

The hotel has pet-friendly rooms available at an extra cost. If booked in advance, the hotel can provide pet beds and food bowls too.

Hotel Amenities

Amenities available for guests include free high-speed Internet, an indoor pool, hot tub, complimentary bikes, and a gym with weights and cardio equipment. The hotel also has meeting rooms for conferences and an 8,000 square-foot ballroom.

Wi-Fi at the hotel is complimentary throughout the building including in meeting and event spaces (which isn’t the case at all hotels). The Wi-Fi is apparently strong and consistent enough for streaming and Zoom calls, which is nice to have.

The gym at the Pinnacle is a really good one. It’s large for a hotel fitness centre and has lots of equipment.

The P2B Bistro & Bar is the on-site restaurant at the Pinnacle. The restaurant gets very good ratings and uses fresh, sustainable and local ingredients in its 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. Several nights a week there is live music. We’ve eaten at the P2B Bistro a few times and have always enjoyed it.

The hotel has underground parking. It’s located on West Hastings Street just half a block west of the hotel’s main entrance. If you pay for parking with the hotel, it includes in-and-out privileges. As of early 2024, parking costs about $38 per night.

Tips & Advice

Below are some tips and suggestions to help you make the most of your experience at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront.

TIP #1: The P2B Bistro & Bar is a nice semi-casual restaurant. The eatery is one of a number of places in downtown Vancouver that offers special brunches at Easter and on Mother’s Day. We really like this restaurant.

TIP #2: 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 #3:  If you’re looking for a venue for an event or meeting, the Pinnacle is a great place for that too. The hotel has a large ballroom as well as 20 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 #4: The hotel sometimes offers complimentary bicycles, although as of January, 2024, these are currently unavailable. When bikes are available again, the seawall is nearby and a terrific place to bike ride. Stanley Park is also 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. It has a dedicated bike lane that runs from north to south through the heart of the city.

TIP #5: Sometimes the hotel offers packages that include free parking for BC Residents. This can be a really good deal and saves close to $40 a night. The Pinnacle doesn’t always offer this, but sometimes it does.
