For tourists who come to Vancouver, the one big problem is knowing where to stay. Vancouver is immensely popular with tourists and has over 25,000 hotel and hostel rooms and this does not include AirBnB. The great thing about Vancouver is that it is not an immensely large city and one can easily get around with the use of limousines. For someone coming to Vancouver for the first time, here are a few tips from Royal Limo Service on where you may consider staying:
The Downtown: The Downtown has many great hotels and most are located in the inner core of the city. The great thing about staying in a downtown hotel is that many touristy things are nearby and transportation is readily available. In addition, the downtown has great restaurants to suit all budgets. The one negative about the downtown is that
1) if you rent a car, parking can be difficult and many small hotels do not offer a parking space. This means you may have to pay for daily parking which can range from $20-$30 a night.
2) The other problem with staying downtown is that the hotels are not cheap. Most of the hotels start at about $100 a night and above. Top rated hotels in the downtown area include the Fairmount, Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Wedgewood Hotel and Spa, Four seasons, Sheraton Vancouver Wall Center, Georgian Court Hotel and the Rosedale on Robson.
All these are great places to stay, offer splendid views of the sea are safe and offer many amenities. There are other budget hotels in the downtown area like the Comfort inn, Holiday inn, and the Sandman Hotel; these hotels cost less than $100 a night but may not offer all the amenities that the 5 star hotels offer. But most are located within walking distance of restaurants and the sea shore.
For those who love the water and scenic views, staying in a hotel by the waterfront is highly recommended. In addition, if you are planning for a cruise, this is the perfect location to stay. The waterfront area stretches from Stanley Park to Canada Place, offers a great seawall to walk and transportation is readily available for those who want to go shopping.
Some great hotels along the waterfront include the Pan Pacific, Fairmont Pacific Rim and the Fairmont Waterfront. These hotels are pricey and cost a minimum of $150 a night but they offer supreme luxury and some of the best views of the ocean.
