Sophisticated, international, and contemporary, the hotels of Vancouver, British Columbia, just across the U.S. border into Canada, accommodate a broad range of budgets, passions, and purposes. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, your stay in Vancouver is enhanced by the appropriate choice for your travel itinerary.
If you are intent on business transactions with the financial sector, you'll prefer a location in downtown near the Canada Center. If your plans involve cultural attractions or shopping, a location near West End and Robson Street, or East Side from downtown to Gastown, will prove best. For relaxing retreats and active, outdoor getaways, hotel stays on Vancouver Island in Victoria and the San Juan Islands of the Washington state coast offer peaceful waterfront retreats.
As a rule, Vancouver hotel prices are often more affordable in comparison to international cities of similar stature. Hotel prices are higher downtown, in the West End near Canada Place, and in the financial sectors, although well-priced accommodations can be found in those areas as well. Abundant amenities pack the list of downtown Vancouver hotels. There is even a hotel just an escalator/elevator ride from the Vancouver International Airport terminal, just steps from the gates.
Many of Vancouver's most popular hotels employ a chic, Pan Asian décor. The iconic Hotel Vancouver is a fabulous stop for both business and leisure travelers looking for an exquisite stay in one of Vancouver's favorite buildings, frequently referred to as "the castle in the city." A clutch of similar historic stays are clustered near important venues.
Old or new, formal or relaxed, Vancouver hotels stand ready to serve you with the perfect level of service to match your expectations. Combined with the rapid transit system of trains, light rail, buses, and ferries, getting around the various neighborhoods is a cinch, although some outlying areas remain more accessible by car.
