Default Re: I need advise for a hotels Vancouver and Los Angeles.

Hello Guys
Advise on places in YVR & LAX!!!!
We live in Nanaimo BC Vancouver Island 21km west of Vancouver (Paradise in the Pacific). We recommend the Sandman Hotel on Davie St in the heart of gay mecca and walking distance to everything. The hotel is about $80-100 CDN per night you cant stay much cheaper than that in downtown. It is all suites full kitchen and fab views ask for high floor facing ocean beautiful sunsets. Robson St is the fashion area, theatres are spread out and big name stars throughout the summer. Vancouver can be a bit quiet bars are busy but streets can be quiet but summer time is busier not like Paris. My partner Bill is just waiting to get to Paris perhaps next April.
We lived in LA for a few yrs and hated it. Too spread out please dont think Rodeo dr and famous places are of interest. They are in awful areas, bums/homeless on the streets and not safe.
Disneyland or Magic Mountain theme parks are great but suggest from San Pedro rent a car and go to Palm Springs in the desert (2 hour drive), you will love it there, great bars gay life is most popular in the USA. Wonderful gay hotels restaurants and trendy shopping areas and full of celebrities.
Need anymore info just say hello!
