I found a gem in the heart of Vancouver. The Victoria Hotel is on the edge of Gastown, and is an old mansion converted to beautiful rooms with lovely furnishings. One would never know from the street that it is such a treasure. The hotel is old, and the furnishings are showing their age, but I loved every moment. It was inexpensive, included a great breakfast, and the staff were each warm and helpful.
I had a room with a shared bathroom outside my door. It was a slight inconvenience, but the room comes with a robe and since it is a small boutique hotel, the halls were empty.
It is my new favourite.
