We had a 6 am flight out of Vancouver. The cab ride was about $30. We booked a hotel thru Priceline in downtown Vancouver area and got the Hyatt once and the Sheraton another time by bidding on 4*. They are both in great locations on Burrard. It took a couple of days because we kept the bid low. You will get to your hotel around 10 am and if your room is not ready they will hold your luggage. Then you can do the double decker bus that will take you all over Vancouver. The bus stop is right outside both hotels and other convenient locations. The buses come by every 15 minuest or so. Take the tour around once then decide what you want to see and go around again. It is about $30/pp USD. You can get off in Stanley Park and walk around, get off at the Point and take great pictures, get off at the Starbucks by Granville Island and walk around, same with GasTown and China Town. It is a great tour that you can do all day and you see a lot. We used our credit card for the best exchange rate. Enjoy!
