This was our second consecutive year using this hotel as our base for a 7-day Alaskan Cruise. Saving air fare by driving was excellent, but the prospect of paying most of that savings to Canada Place for parking wasn't appealing.
So instead of racing from Portland to get to embark on the cruise in time (ships wait for no one!) we took a leisurely drive the day before, stayed at the HI Express Vancouver (E. Hastings St.), enjoyed a free breakfast the next morning, utilized their free shuttle to Canada Place, and left our car safely in their secure underground parking garage. A $20 cab ride (included tip) and we were on our way home.
My only (brief) concern was they couldn't find my car keys right away. No issue at all, since they were all very friendly and professional.
As a bonus recommendation, be sure to catch dinner down the street (3 minutes walking) at Slocan's (corner of Hastings and Slocan.) Excellent dirty martini, salad, and personality.
When we take another cruise out of Vancouver, we will absolutely stay at this property again - and I can hardly wait for the next round of dirty martinis at Slocans!
