Really gorgeous building with an awesome pub in the lobby. Try to get to the 2nd floor or the penthouse for even better views.
This is one of the finest examples of art moderne architecture anywhere. It is a must to browse the lobby and historic plaques. Not to be missed if you are an historic architecture buff.
Once the tallest building in the British Empire, the Marine Building is not to be missed if you enjoy architecture. It’s situated between the Burrard and Waterfront Expo skytrain stations in an upscale section of downtown Vancouver. As other reviews state, lovely foyer and mezzanine…More

This building is a Vancouver treasure. Stroll in as you walk the city. Architecturally this is one of the earlier landmarks of the city. Now quite hidden by tall buildings but well worth seeking out.

In 1930 the Marine Building was the tallest structure in the British Empire. Located on 355 Burrad Street in downtown Vancouver close to the Financial District and not far from Canada Place, you can actually miss this place among the other high rise structures. At…More

The building is close to Canada Place – you can’t miss it. The foyer is also amazing. There’s also a free wifi hotspot in the foyer.

This is an amazing building, not to be missed. Revolving doors at the entrance lead to a a beautiful foyer. It only takes minutes to appreciate the beauty.
We happened upon this building during a walk to Stanley Park, and the facade and Art Deco style stopped us in our tracks. Not sure if you can tour anything inside the building, but it stands out in a neighborhood of sleek high-rise buildings.

If you’re visiting downtown Vancouver, walk to West Hastings Street and look west. At the end of the street you’ll see the art deco wonder that is the Marine Building. It’s a gorgeous building, constructed in the late 20s and lavishly decorated. Once you’re done ogling its facade, be sure to wander inside and marvel at its opulent lobby. Unfortunately, the observation deck closed many, many years ago, and with newer, taller buildings supplanting this beauty’s once prime location overlooking Vancouver’s harbour, it wouldn’t offer the views it did in the past–but it would still be nice.

The Marine Building on Burrand Street is an art deco lovers fantasy. There is no tour of the building and it is free to walk into since it is full of offices. There is a little information area inside the building. You can walk around the foyer and get into the elevator to the 2nd floor. The entrance is used a lot in movies, so it may seem familiar to many. Worth a stop especially if you like art deco or great architectural design. Would have loved to see it in its prime!
It is truly a beautiful building, once the tallest in the British Empire, but now dwarfed by the green-glass skyscrapers around. Even though I was a numpty and missed being able to see the inside, the outside is still beautiful.
The place is wonderful, I went to it on a tour, went back again later for another look and to take more photos. One of the best buildings I’ve seen and it’s free entry. Google if before you go so you know what it’s all…More
