Accommodation In Vancouver

By Alfred Lancer

Downtown Vancouver is a good place to stay for just about any reason because of its’ convenient access to almost everything.

Finding a place to stay when you come to Vancouver can be pretty tight so you definitely want to make sure to plan your accommodations as far in advance as possible.

There are certain times that are guaranteed not as easy as others to find a place to stay like year round pretty much any long weekend and the summer high season from May to September.

By starting early you will have many options including luxury, mid-range and cheap hotel rooms and suites, vacation rental properties, hostels, guest homes and bed and breakfast rooms.

The thing to do when you are planning where to stay is to have a bit of a budget in mind and decide on the kind of activities you would like to do. That way you can look for accommodations that are within a reasonable distance of the things you like to do and you won’t have to travel far to enjoy them.

When you are downtown you are within a reasonable distance to many major attractions like Stanley Park, Gastown, Chinatown, BC Place and GM Stadiums, The Cruise Ship Terminal, Science World, Harbour Centre Lookout, night life, theatre, all kinds of shopping and some of the best dining on the planet.

When you are downtown you are also ideally situated to get on the highway and head out of town for a day trip.

Head west up the Sea to Sky Highway all the way up to Whistler Ski Resort. The route will take you through scenic Oceanside towns and villages where you can stop to golf, fish or hike.

Head south; towards the seaside fishing village of Steveston you can buy the day’s catch from local fishers right off the wharf; or stop along the way at a local farm for seasonal fruit and produce.

Head east out into the valley and you’re into more farmland, the historical town of Fort Langley and the Harrison Lake Resort where they have the world championship sandcastle competition.

If the kind of activities you want to do include a lot of beach walks and sun-bathing look for beach side accommodations like vacation rental homes and rental apartments.

No matter where you plan to stay, Vancouver and the surrounding areas of the lower mainland have many fabulous places to offer. Just do yourself a favor and avoid disappointment by booking as far in advance as possible.
