We got our hotel thru Priceline in 2005 for $70. We bid on downtown Vancouver for a 4* only and got the Hyatt on Burrard. It was great room with a huge walkout balcony but not chairs. We did it again that September and go the Sheraton for $70 also. We had a room on the 34th floor with a fantastic view. Start low then gradually increase your bid if necessary. We love Vancouver. We took the double decker bus - ticket is good for 2 days - and it was less expensive than the Greyline tour for 4 hours. It is hop on/off bus and you can go around as many times as you want. Also the aquarium is good too. Good Luck.
