A multicultural metropolis with snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and waterfront forests
There’s a wide selection of hotels in Vancouver, ranging from cheap fleapits to extremely high-end chain and boutique hotels. It’s important to book ahead during peak seasons such as summer and around the Winter Olympics in February 2010 as Vancouver’s accommodation fills right up at these times.
The cheaper hotels tend to be clustered around Chinatown and Gastown, but please be aware that this is not a safe area at night, particularly for women. If you’re looking for a hotel on a budget then head towards the downtown area for hotels such as the Kingston or the budget chains such as Days Inn. If the sky’s the limit for your budget, then you won’t be disappointed by Vancouver’s hotels. The Shangri-La chain has recently opened one of its luxury spa hotels in the middle of town. Other luxury names such as the Fairmont also have hotels here as do chains such as Sheraton and Hyatt. Mid-range hotels such as the Ramada are also well placed on the West Side. Prices range from about $100 (60 euros) upwards, but in low season there will usually be special offers available. Hotels can be booked via any one of the many deal-searching websites such as http://realtravel.com.
