Hotel Georgia (crowne plaza hotel)

This was the hotel we stayed in Vancouver . It was well priced for a hotel in downtown . Great location . Nice rooms . Great location . For a well maintained friendly hotel I would recommend it . Also close to the city tour bus stop which I highly recommend.

The best way to describe this hotel is a boutique hotel. Lots of antiques alittle formal but very comfortable. Not the cheapest and not the most expensive . Not stuffy but has character .Staff was very helpful especially concierge . Bought our ticket for the Greyhund bus tour through them.

Rental Accommodation in Vancouver: Looking for a place to rent?

If you're visiting Vancouver for an extended time or actually moving here then you very likely will be searching for a place to rent. Here are some of the top places to look:

Craigslist

Vancouver Sun

VanNet Classifieds

An interesting thing about Vancouver is that many places offer month-to-month rentals. You just need to give one month's notice and then you're free to leave. Some still try to lock you in to a 1-year lease but enough don't that you should have some bargaining power. Because there's nothing worse than moving into a place and then realizing you don't like it.

Conferences and Accommodation at UBC: Stay at UBC for cheap!

To save some money a good option in Vancouver is staying at UBC. In the summer, the dormatories and conference housing opens as a hotel/hostel for anyone. The accomadations go from a single dorm in a suite of six rooms with a shared bathroom, to a large 7-person suite with TV and kitchen and multiple bathrooms. I stayed in the dormatories and they were as all college dormatories are: bare, but adequate. It is located on the UBC campus, which is a couple of miles away from downtown, but is in a great area of Vancouver. They have free parking next to the buildings. Reservations available on-line.

Nothing too unique, but it is a good price for Vancouver

Angel Cottage: Excellent Location, Great Price

My father really is tight and for his second visit to Canada and first to Vancouver he asked my reserve his accomadation but not to spend more than $59CAD a night as this is what he paid in Montreal last year. After spending days explaing that everything is more expensive on the west coast he said that if we didn't find anything for his revised budget of 30 pounds $75CAD then he'd stay with us. Heavens forbid!! so I spend weeks looking to find something and there isn't much cheap good quality accomadation in town for $75CAD a night other than those at the ariport.

Finally I stumbled on the Angel Cottage, about $100CAD a night but if they decided not to have breakfast and stayed a week then the rate dropped to $525 a week.

It turned out to be quite a bargain, this place is in Kits, minutes walk to the beach, and only a short walk from our appartment. Rather than having just a room they get a mini appartment together with a fitted kitchen bathroom and separate bedroom. For anyone visiting town for a little while this place is great value in a spot on area.

Priceline: Cheap Accomadation Tip

Ever wanted to stay at the Westin but could never afford it? I'm sure you've checked out Priceline at some point but you may have been put off by the element of risk. While not knowing where to stay or how much to bid are obvious worries there is an answer.

The link below will take you to a forum (lots more destiantions included) where you can get bidding help and know the hotels Priceline use in advance. Four star hotels generally go for between $45 - $60US or less and three stars for $40 - $50 US much cheaper than anywhere else you're likley to find.

Good Luck!

UBC - University of British Columbia: Excellent value accommodation in Vancouver

Exellent stay in the Gage Towers Residency. Good sized secure single rooms and good showers in each section. (Many different grades/types of other accommodation are available) Helpful front desk staff.

Plenty of safe amenities on site to use such as free internet, Swimming pool, bars, dozens of food outlets etc

Very picturesque location surrounded by forests/beaches

Only drawback is the location 30 mins from downtown but this is tempered by a decent and frequent bus service to Downtown

A week cost me under 200 cad dollars (after tax)

Arbutus Vista Vancouver bed and breakfast: Business trip alternative!

I spent 2 weeks at this B&B during a recent business trip in Vancouver. The space was great, very clean and well decorated. It had all the facilities I needed for my business: phone line, high speed internet, fax etc... There was a small laptop in the suite but I connected mine instead to the provided ADSL line (more useful to me). I had several business meetings in the spacious living room, very handy! Both hosts were very nice and tried to think of anything they could do to make my stay better. I did not need the breakfast so I cannot comment on the food. However, there was a welcome basket (fresh fruits, cookies, biscotti, etc) in the living room, much appreciated after a long flight from Hong Kong, and coffee was provided every day. The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet, the private bathroom is the typical 5 pieces set and there is a very handy kitchenette in a corner of the living room, which I did not really use, except for the fridge and microwave. This B&B is a very nice alternative to a 5 star hotel! I will be back and I recommend it to others!

The location is very nice: residential neighborhood, quiet and pretty, only a few minutes away from the downtown core or from the airport. Very large suite, super comfortable and totally independant. Business facilities (high speed internet, phone line, fax service, space for business meetings...). The laptop provided is OK but bring your own for full productivity (free connection to an ADSL line is provided)! One nice thing to mention is that I got the whole suite for myself, I did not have to share any space with any other guest and it was like having my own appartment...

Crowne Plaza Hotel Georgia: Crowne Plaza Hotel Georgia

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. The service is very good, and the lobby is pretty. The rooms are small, as it is an old hotel, but they are clean and nice and the bed was comfortable. We did not have a view, to speak of. The room had a cd player and a nice tv. They advertise a nightclub in the basement, which was out of business when we were there. We did not use room service, movies or play video games, as there is way too much to do outside in the neighborhood.

The best thing about this hotel, aside from clean comfortable (small) rooms is its location. There is a lot you can do within a couple blocks' walk.

The Delta Whistler Resort: Luxury that's worth the extra cost!

This place is wonderful. It's located in Whistler Village at the base of Whistler Mountain. It is just steps away from the gondola to either Blackcomb or Whistler Mountain ski areas. It's pricey, but not as bad as the Pan Pacific, or Chateau Whistler which are very close by.

They have all the amenities you could want here with pools, spas, shopping, dining and more. They also have wonderful views.

The Spinning Wheel Inn: Quite noisy

On Carrol street above The Party Zone bar is a small hotel with rooms that include a fridge cooking facilities and tv. They can be rented by the day, week or month. The only downside was the music from the bar underneath which got quite loud and didn't stop until 2:00 am.

Search for something outside...

Search for something outside of downtown. Check on the North Shore, or maybe even Burnaby, New Westminster etc. Depends where u wanna go or what u wanna do or even how much u can walk.
