Can anyone tell me about the area on E. Hastings St. in Vancouver B.C. ???? I
booked a hotel online after some Internet research. The hotel is called the
Budget Inn Patricia Hotel on 403 E. Hastings St. The website claims it is a 3-star
hotel with an aerial view of a huge complex complete with swimming pools and
the ocean in the rear. I then checked another site and it claims it is only a 2-star
hotel. I also been hearing on the Internet chat lines that this is a crappy area
with prostitutes, bums, transients, and drug dealers.
Last Sept., we stayed one night at the Atrium Inn on Hastings, as that is where our tour leader booked. It was a fairly nice hotel, but not a great area. On our return from our cruise, I booked with Priceline & got the Hyatt Regency for a great rate. We were pleased with it & the area. We just used Priceline again on a trip to San Diego, & got the Residence Inn for $50. So don't be afraid to use them.

You should avoid that area unless you have a police escort! Make sure your hotel is WEST of Granville Street -- that's the dividing line between the business district and the seedy area you want to avoid.
