Hotels in Vancouver BC
There are many great hotels in Vancouver BC, and choosing which one to stay at is not always easy. Deciding which hotel is best for you depends on a variety of factors, mainly:
If this is your first time visiting Vancouver, then the first thing you want to do is find a good downtown Vancouver map. The Vancouver BC tourism website offers a few maps online; or you can find maps at your local bookstore. The “MapEasy” guides are easy to read and include the hotels in Vancouver BC on the map itself, so you have an easy reference for the location.
Next, you need to figure out what exactly you’re going to Vancouver to see. Are you going to sightsee? Then you need to pick an area that is close to the sights you most want to see.
Keep in mind that even if you pick a cheaper hotel that is further away, you will make up the difference in cab fares or time spent trying to get to your destination.
When you’re just staying for one or two nights prior to a Vancouver Alaskan cruise, then you want to stay close to the departure port. If you’re going for a sporting event or major concert, then you might want to stay closer to the stadium where the event is being held.
Price:Price is one of the most obvious factors in choosing which of the downtown Vancouver hotels is best for you. If you are indulging and treating yourself to an upscale vacation, then you can’t go wrong with any of the following:
If you are looking for hotels in Vancouver BC that are in the more moderate price range, the Sylvia Hotel Vancouver (located in the West End close to Stanley Park) and the Georgian Court (across from BC Place Stadium) are great options.
In the more affordable range, the Best Western Downtown Vancouver offers wonderful amenities at a great price; and is only three blocks from the aquabus that takes you to Granville Island.
Of course, you must book at hotel that falls within your expectations of the trip; in other words, what you want to experience during your stay. Some people like the amenities that come with large hotel chains; others prefer the personal touch of a boutique hotel or a bed & breakfast.
Knowing what you want is an important part of choosing the hotels in Vancouver BC that are right for you.
