Staying in Vancouver
Dine and doze in Downtown Vancouver
Whether you're visiting Canada's third largest city for business or pleasure, staying in the Downtown district will keep you in close proximity to nightlife, shopping, dining and commercial offerings. The majority of roads and public transport routes lead to and from the city centre, making it a convenient base for your Vancouver holiday.
There are hotels of every shape and size in the city, including the Hyatt Regency with rooms ranging from standard to deluxe, the resplendent St. Regis Vancouver (which has just racked up a century of service) and the stylish Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre.
Soar and snooze near Vancouver Airport
After your long-haul flight into Canada's west, settling straight into your hotel will allow you to refresh and recharge, ready to take on Vancouver. Some of the easiest Vancouver accommodation options are located within moments of the International Airport, so you can beat the jetlag and make the most of your holiday from the get go.
There are airport hotels galore close to the terminal, from the 4-star Delta Vancouver Suites and the Fairmont Vancouver Airport to the always reputable Hilton, located just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver. More hotels within reach of the runway include the Ramada, Radisson, Fairmont and Westin brands.
Cheaper choices beyond the city
If you're travelling on tight purse strings, staying outside the Downtown district allows you to save a little extra spending money. Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown and West End are all pockets that surround the city, offering lodgings that may be a little more budget-friendly.
West End is speckled with cheerful bed and breakfasts and guesthouses boasting a more personality than your run-of-the-mill hotel, while Yaletown south of the CBD has a selection of hostels, hotels and furnished apartment rentals. In Chinatown, you will find hotels all along East Hastings Street leading into Downtown Vancouver.
