With Canada opening to US travelers, it’s time to plan that trip to Vancouver that you’ve been talking about for the past 18 months. To help you in your endeavour, we found three incredible Vancouver hotel deals to make your stay in Canada’s coolest city more affordable.
Stroll Vancouver’s most stunning park from the Rosellen Suites Stanley Park Hotel
Strolling the shoreline of northern Vancouver’s Stanley Park is the perfect introduction to British Columbia. The park itself embodies the deep shades of green that the Pacific Northwest is known for. You can swim at Second Beach or Third Beach, paddling the water of English Bay in the middle of this stunning scenery. Even simply strolling or biking the path that separates the hilled park from the water is an experience in itself, particularly if you stop along the way for a pint and a snack at Stanley Park Brewing.
This Travelzoo deal tucks you in at the Rosellen Suites Stanley Park Hotel directly adjacent to the park for just $100. That’s 50 percent off the hotel’s normal rate and includes free parking and a $20 breakfast credit at The Basic, the hotel’s onsite restaurant. Suites at the hotel come with kitchens, lightning-fast WiFi, plus, you’ll be surrounded by the charms of Vancouver’s West End, home to some of the city’s best dining and nightlife.
Spending a few nights at the Rosellen is the best way to score a “win” on a trip to Vancouver this fall. Cancel and get your money back if you decide not to travel.
Price: $100 per night, plus free parking and breakfast
Experience Vancouver’s hippest neighborhood from the Victorian Hotel
Should you wish to stay in a more central location, we recommend one of the Vancouver hotel deals from the Victorian Hotel, which has rates as low as $128 on Expedia right now. The hotel, Victorian in style as its name suggests, is among Vancouver’s most comfortable boutique hotels. Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors give the rooms a historic ambiance, yet the experience is exquisitely modern and luxurious, particularly for this price point. Dedicated work desks offer views out over the surrounding Gastown neighborhood.
You’ll be a quick walk to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and Rogers Arena, as well as the acclaimed Canada Place convention center. But the real win is that you’re in Gastown, Vancouver’s hippest neighborhood. Regardless of your reason for being in town — be it a conference, a hockey game, or just for fun, a stay at the Victorian Hotel gives you prime access to an evening of strolling Cordova Street with stops for a pint at Steamworks Brewpub and a patio meal at La Casita or The Cambie. You’ll hear the whistle of the famous Gastown Steam Clock, and will return to a hotel room that’s as classy as you’ll feel when walking through the front door.
Price: From $128
Position yourself for easy transport by bookending your trip at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport
Gone are the days when airport hotels were drab, boring, and located in cookie-cutter clusters that ached from the stresses of overworked business travelers. The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is everything an airport hotel should be. It’s located in-terminal and rooms have views out onto the tarmac, where you can play the fun game of identifying planes based on the provided plane identification card. Rooms are done in the high-class style that Fairmont hotels are known for. The rooms are also very quiet. Amenities — including a pool and fitness center — are plenty. Thread counts are high. There’s nothing not to love.
Additionally, should you have a late-night or early morning flight, the hotel can have food prepared for you to either eat in-room or grab and go on your way out the door to the security checkpoint. With all the current fluctuation with flight schedules, you can at least rest easy here knowing that getting to your gate on time is a non-issue.
