North of Vancouver

Does anyone know of a nice place to stay North of downtown Vancouver? We arrive late at night and don't want to stay in the downtown area as the next morning we are heading to Whistler.

You can stay on the north shore, i.e. North Vancouver, but there are not many hotels up there, save some Best Westerns, Tavellodges or Holiday Inn Expresses.

The next town north of Vancouver is Squamish, and it is 1/2 way to Whistler. If you want to go there, let me know and I can recommend some accomodations.

My suggestion is Lonsdale Quay Hotel, at the Lonsdale Quay Market.


Near some good restaurants and over the market (a lot smaller version of granville market)...

There are also B&B's but with the hotel you have the flexible IMHO.

Have Fun!

There isn't much advantage in staying in North Vancouver vs. Vancouver (North Van is a nearby suburb). I'd either stay in Vancouver (or near the airport in Richmond) and drive to Whistler in the morning, or I'd go straight to Whistler when you arrive.
