Default Vancouver hotel after cruise question

Well, I have booked my flights TO anchorage and the hotel in anchorage in anticipation of our alaska cruise out of whittier May -09(still have to get the train transfer to whittier), however, while looking for flights home, it appears that the latest flights go at 10:30 a.m. and then not again until like 7:30 pm which puts us flying overnight and getting home mid morning the next day. My thoughts are to stay in Vancouver after the cruise for one night and fly out early in the am. the next day putting us home about 8:30 pm here in lafayette. In order to do this, I need some ideas on which hotels to stay at at a reasonable rate for a one night stay before the flight home. Any suggestions anyone? And what can we do cheaply in Vancouver (by then funds may be exhausted..lol) Thanks

You should choose a flight that leaves after 12 noon. That's the recommendation on any cruiseline site.Why not spend a day or two in Vancouver before returning home. Vancouver is a bueatiful and wonderful city to visit.

Thats what I decided - but I don't know what hotel to stay at. Work awaits me the moment I get home ----- so I can only stay one night and fly out the next am.

Cheryl,
We did the same thing a few years ago. We went thru Priceline 4-5* downtown Vancouver and got the Hyatt one time, another time the Sheraton. Vancouver is a great city to see. Take the HOHO bus to see it, very easy and fun. We had a 6 am flight the next morning, taking a taxi to the airport. No traffic to worry about. Have a great time!

Hotels on Hastings Street will give you prime location to Stanley Park, China Town, and Gastown. I don't know if it istilla Holdiay Inn, but it was a waterfront hotel two blocks to Stanley Park and three-five blocks to China Town and Gastown (a must--it's so close to Canada Place cruise terminal it isn't funny!)....

I haven't been to Vancouver since Expo 86, but I have wanted to go for ages. I still want to go for the 2010 Olympics, but I don't know anyone who lives there that I can impose on for a weekend while I take in the winter games....*sigh* I do NOT want to pay $400+ a night for a hotel that normally goes for under $200 a night!!!!! Sadly, I might end up taking that week off and watching the games on TV......Vancouver is only 1:15 flights from where I live.....

Don't know your budget. There are a number of hotels near the cruise terminal . There is know in the terminal (Pan Pacific)
and the Fairmont Waterfront right across the street.
If you are docking at Ballantyne Pier , then you will need
to take a taxi to your hotel. In the downtown there is a trolley that does a loop and you get on/off where you want.

Visit the Vancouver site (new this year)

http://www.vancouver.com/

for more info.

We recently spent two nights at:

Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park

2030 Barclay Street

Vancouver, BC

V6G 1L5

It is one block from Stanley Park, and only two or three short blocks from Denman Street, which has dozens of eating places and other shops. It's not a typical hotel, but a "residence apartment," so that each unit has a kitchen. We saved some money by getting cereal, fruit, bread and milk for breakfasts. The nearby eating places are of varying and interesting prices and cuisine. We liked the Ukranian place, which we had visited twice on our our last trip to Vancouver. We also had a cheap dinner of Japanese noodles on Denman. The hotel has a website. We paid $139 CDN per night, which was at the cheaper end of their rates for a one-bedroom unit. Very nice people.
