First I think you need to specify your price range. You can get some amazing rooms but they are going to cost you.

Hyatt Regency on Burrard is where we usually stay. A 5 minute taxi (under $9 incl tip for driver) to port or a 10 minute walk-all downhill. Again-it's not a cheap hotel.

Lollipop's Mom made a whole thread on Vancouver for those that travelled in 2011.

It was absolutely full of information. It inspired the Seattle thread I started.

Here's a link to both

I hope the info helps someone

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary and stayed at The Loden. It is close to Cole Harbor. ***** all the way. They have top notch customer service. Trendy. Good looking. Close to Cole Harbor where we had a fabulous meal at Cardero's - on the water - you can see the ocean, snow on the mountains and it is gorgeous. They have a free car service that will take you anywhere. Look on www.tripadvisor.com. Search for my review - aml3679 is my user name. Best hotel we ever stayed at.

We just stayed at Blue Horizon Hotel last week after our Alaska cruise. Nice big room, very clean, friendly staff.

It is on Robson Street which has a lot of shops and restaurants. We don't mind walking and it was a great location for that, we walked to Gastown and down to the bike rental locations near Stanley Park. It is also a stop for the Hop on Hop off bus.

It was $160 a night, though summer rates might be more.

I highly recommend it.

Has anyone stayed at the Best Western Plus Abercorn Inn, Richmond? Free airport transportation and good price if it will work.

We stayed at the Best Western - they had a cruise special that included transportation from the airport and then to the port the following day. They also included breakfast the morning that we left... It was clean and inexpensive....

Granville Island Hotel

You will have to take a cab to port but I love staying on Granville Island. Nothing beats breakfast in the market, AQUABUS over to downtown in the afternoon and then dinner at one of the many restaurants at night. When in Vancouver, I always make Granville Island Hotel my home base. Room will run you between 150 and 200 CAD.

Wonderful, friendly staff, so nice and helpful. I had joined my husband at the last minute on a business trip when his associate couldn't come along, so they weren't expecting him to arrive with 2 toddlers in tow. They were so quick to bring up a crib, help us with finding kid friendly restaurants nearby and even brought milk and warm cookies up to the room for them at no charge!
We love doing quick trips into the city and have stayed at a lot of places that are great (Sutton Place, Pan Pacific, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, L'Hermitage) but for a balance of reasonable price, great location and amazing service, Coast Coal Harbour has moved to the top of our list.
We stayed here in 2011 before our Alaska Cruise. Great location and amazing staff!!! You can walk to Canada Place. Would recomend to all!!

We, too, stayed at Pan Pacific this past May. It will go down as one of my favorite all time hotel stays. We had a room facing the water and could watch the seaplanes taking off all day, plus you can watch the ships come and go. We were right above the dock and got to look down on our ship when it docked the morning of our departure. A beautiful hotel in a great location. Don't forget to go out the doors and to the right in the plaza by the waterfront is the Olympic torch.

Vancouver Hotels

I have been watching the rates and looking for promo codes for the Pan Pacific for June 10 2013 sailing. Maybe I am too early as the rate is still around $500. Any suggestions?

Did you sign up for their specials? That's what we did.
