Vancouver downtown is a must. So much shopping at Pacific Centre and many restaurants, spas and coffee shops. Within walking distance to many areas.

Although it is the heart of city, mostly clean and keeping beautiful atmosphere. Maybe be because of a lot of trees and colorful building are throughout in the city. We could see mountain and ocean with modern city scenery. 中心地でありながら、掃除が行き届いた綺麗な街の印象と色とりどりの建物と木々に囲まれたアーバンシティ。何と言ってもふと見上げると山々に囲まれていて、さらに海まで見えるの。都会的な景観とのコントラストが非常によくいるだけで心地の良い街です。

Spectacular scenery from every corner of the city. Amazing walking and biking trails along the ocean. Great Asian restaurant. Ski mountains within 20 min drive from city. Subway from airport to city centre. This city has it all. Should be in everyone’s bucket list.

Downtown Vancouver is a good distance from where we live and depending on the time of day can be a pain in the butt for traffic. However the trip is well worth it if you can spend the day park your vehicle somewhere and walk...More

If you’re the kind of person who loves to get the busy city vibe , while trying different shops and eating different cuisines, then this is it! You will find almost anything in this area, grocery stores, gift shops, cafes restaurants and spas!

Vancouver is truly the gem of the Pacific Northwest. Surrounded by water with mountains facing you, the city surroundings are spectacular. The city has plenty to offer between culture, sporting events, restaurants, and shopping.

A safe and beautiful downtown area with glass buildings ocean, mountains and on summer days a clear blue sky. The transit system is very efficient and clean. Good shopping on Robson Street and Canada Place is very cool.

Hi there - we visited in September which is slightly off-season as it's getting colder so April/May would probably be busier. We were very near the harbour as we were going on a cruise but all around that area is very busy... More

Vancouver Downtown - Reasonably priced convenient hotel (22 Replies)
Hi, I'll be travelling to Vancouver with 3 kids in August 2018 split over two dates: 5th to 7th August and 8th August to 10th August (2 x nights each with 1 day gap in the middle for Victoria overnight). I knew in advance that Vancouver is an expensive city and that I'm travelling peak times but I've been trawling all over the usual hotel booking sites for a suitable (average say 3*) hotel in convenient (or close to transport links) and safe location. I'm usually quite proficient at...More

Try Canadian Affair. I have booked all my hotels through them as they seem to have cheaper rates. We booked the Sutton Place hotel for next year with them as it was coming out £200 cheaper than any other website and was also working out cheaper than the Metropolitan where we stayed this year.

Best way to get from Victoria to Vancouver (downtown). (6 Replies)
My family (wife, 9 month old daughter and myself) will be spending a few nights in Victoria before going to Vancouver. What would be the best way to travel from Victoria (BC Legislation) to Vancouver (Canada Place) taking into considering our 9 month old? 1) Flying (most expensive) = cab to Victoria airport, fly, cab from Vancouver airport to Canada Place 2) Ferry (least expensive) = cab to Swartz Bay and take the BC ferry to Tsawwassen and then cab to Canada Place? 3) Coach Bus...More

Number 2 will be MUCH more expensive than number 3. Those cab fares will be astronomical. At a rough guess, $25 or $20 to get from Victoria to Swartz Bay and then maybe $80 to get from Tsawwassen into Vancouver. Could be more.

thank you very much for your response! We are hiring a car so Id like to have a hotel with underground parking and I know we'll have to pay but depending on the hotels I have priced they are ranging from $10 - $40 a day, should I be looking for hotels in the east or west areas or does it make a difference. Will have a look at them other websites too thanks
