Not my first pick of hotel in Vancouver, but I needed to be near this location. The hotel uses excessivly strong strength for their cleaner solution. The smell hits you in the face at the front door and certainly in the room when the maid...More

Hotel rooms in Vancouver are very expensive, as we discovered when trying to book a room before a cruise. This hotel was reasonably priced, and had pretty good reviews, so we tried it. It was a good decision, based on the comfy bed and decent...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

Yes there is a parking garage under the hotel. We had free parking as we booked 6 months in advance, otherwise there is a fee of about $20 USD per night.
