The listel is about the best place to stay, the rates are reasonable & the location is excellent, it's located on Robson St. which is one of the main shopping areas. It's about a $5.00 (cdn) ride to the Canada Place pier. If you prefer to walk it is about 10 min. away. Vancouver has some wonderful places to eat, if you are looking for something different you could try the restaurant located at the top of Grouse Mountain, it has a wonderful view of the City and Vancouver Island.
