Busy city with skyscrapers making the city streets feel very closed in. Horizontal and vertical street layout makes it easy to get around. Do find the placing of street signs a bit confusing but you get used to it. Usual mix of financial area, shopping and more tourists related areas. Architecture does not really stand out. The odd building has... More

We really enjoyed roaming the streets of downtown Vancouver. Be sure to visit Yaletown, Gastown, Robson Road, and Granville Island.

Great place to stroll around and take in the sights. Walk to Canada Place, then on to Gastown. Then either catch a bus or walk north up Granville street. Great shopping and lots of places to eat.

We found the streets of the central city to be dirty as we walked from Granville Station to Yaletown to get the Aquabus. Very disappointing. Gastown was better most probably because that's the tourist destination.

I really enjoyed this city because we stayed longer and not rushed. We were here for a few times for meetings! Beautiful city, beautiful people but there were a few homeless begging and I feel sad when I see this! It reminds me of Hawaii, Rio and Hongkong, with the mountain, city and water!

Very focussed on providing opportunities for tourists to part with their money, some of the galleries have quality goods but what a price!

Vancouver is a very crowded, international city. We went in September hoping to avoid the summer tourist season. However, it still took us over an hour just to clear customs. Its a great city for young people because you can ride your bicycle everywhere. There's special lanes just for bicycles. If you want to go shopping and avoid the traffic... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
