i used hotwire last year and got a great hotel really cheap by the airport. i am going to try priceline for my next cruise. go to hellobc.com. they list all the hotels, ratings, show special package deals for some hotels and all the info on vancouver hotels. and if you are going to have some extra time in vancouver go to land/seatours.com for some great inexpensive tours. i am going to use their pre-cruise tour again. they pick you and your luggage up at the hotel, take you on the tour and then take you right to the peir. no taxis to hassle with and you get a great tour. i really like them. bcpassport.com is another good site for all the vancouver info. have a great time.
