Where to stay in Vancouver
Often highly regarded as one of the world’s best places to live, the North Pacific seaport of Vancouver has seen visitor numbers increase dramatically over the past few years as Canada’s popularity continues to grow.
A city that is stunning on the eyes, Vancouver has tens of thousands of guest rooms ranging from economical to high-end luxury meaning there is something to suit every traveler's budget, taste and personal requirements.
Vancouver is known for being a very walkable city with a compact downtown core, so choosing to base yourself in the city center should mean that you'll find many of the places you want to go are just a short stroll away.
Taxis in the city are plentiful and can be hailed on the street, as well as found at designated public points around town. There is also an accessible and convenient public transit system made up of a network of buses, the SkyTrain (an automated light rapid transit system operating three lines between downtown and Metro Vancouver’s suburbs) and the SeaBus, a ferry service that gives visitors a superb perspective of the city, sea and mountains.
Also, most major car rental companies have offices in the city if you wish to have your own vehicle to explore more of British Columbia.

The Trump International Hotel and Tower is located at the heart of the city’s famous ‘Golden Mile’ – the center of dining, entertainment, shopping and finance – and is considered the most luxurious urban hotel in Vancouver.

Visited Vancouver, BC in February 2016 and ever since dreaming of coming back here. The fact that you can start the day with a bike ride in Stanley Park, go skiing at Cypress after work by a 30 minute drive from downtown is a dream for adventurers and nature lovers. The people are friendly and very green with their choices. Definitely look
So much to see and do in the city of Vancouver- from wonderful skiing, to water sports, lovely historical events and attractions and so much more.
Family vacation stop over. Our group of 20 just finished an Alaskan Cruise and spent five days here and it was worth it. The food, activities and the beautiful scenery, I just wish we had more time. I will definitely be back .=)
This city is freaking amazing, I don't know where to begin. Depending on how the 2016 elections go I may just move here. Must do: 1) Walk / bike the sea wall. Heck, just walk / bike everywhere 2) Go to Lynn Canyon / Suspension Bridge - just a short and fun ferry ride across the water + one bus ticket (Capsilano suspension bridge is supposed to be awesome too, but I didn't get the chance to go) 3) Spend the extra cash to get a high rise Airbnb with a view. You won't regret it. 4) Go to Granville Island 5) Go paddle boarding on the water 6) In the summer they do yoga at sunset at Kitsilano Beach. Go. You're gonna love your stay. Only downside is that there are no ride sharing services that I am aware of (Lyft, Uber, etc).
