We stayed at the Pan Pacific Hotel which is close to the cruise piers. A great hotel. In Vancouver two places to experience are Stanley Park and GasTown. There is probably a Vancouver City tour that will provide an overview of this beautiful city. If you have a spare day either pre or post cruise try to spend a day in Victoria. It is worth the time and expense. Enjoy !

I found a great little suite hotel called Times Square Suites. It's close to Stanley Park for a bit of sightseeing that everyone says is a MUST. I found it while browsing Trip Advisor website in the cruise reviews area. Quite a few folks had commented on it as a great pre-cruise place to stay. It's only $169/night and is quite small and has wonderful views from the rooftop lounge area and every room is a suite. Their website is www.timessquaresuites.com. One thing I read about Vancouver from a reviewer is that the city is so small that you're never really more than a 5 or 10 minute cab ride from the cruise terminals. It was very helpful as I know NOTHING about Vancouver. Check out Trip Advisor.

We haven't been yet - June. I was describing what the website said. We opted to stay out near Stanley Park so we could walk to and rent bikes to ride around the park.

Hands down - the Pan Pacific. We stayed there for three nights prior to our Hawaii cruise and it was wonderful! Very comfortable rooms, great view (make sure you ask for harbourview). I sat at the window for hours just watching the ships come in and out of port and the sea planes landing and taking off.

The best part was just calling the bell person and having them take our luggage down to the port for us.
