“sprawling luxury”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a very large convention centre. Also very well maintained and used for a lot of different things. The only thing I don't like about it is whenever I'm there I seem to get lost. So make sure you give yourself enough time!

“Beautiful Surroundings”

Visit this area to see a beautiful view of Vancouver and Stanley Park. Walking around will provide several sights including the Olympic Torch and various sculptures.

“Lovely Location and a great Place”

Being close by to where I was staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel, certainly a great location for a meeting or conference etc. Great views of the harbour / city and mountains.
