We are on an Alaska cruise in 2019 and I am trying to figure out where to stay in Vancouver pre-cruise. Where did you stay and would you recommend it? Thanks!!!!
That looks so pricey! How many nights did you stay? Was it worth the cost?We stayed at the Pan Pacific. The port is right underneath and you may get a room with a view of the ship. Great to wake up to.
Fairmont Waterfront. We got a room with a view of the Wonder, and that was phenomenal- it docked right outside our window. Lovely hotel.We are on an Alaska cruise in 2019 and I am trying to figure out where to stay in Vancouver pre-cruise. Where did you stay and would you recommend it? Thanks!!!!
We stayed across the street last summer at the Marriott Pinnacle and I agree that this is a great location. You can easily walk pretty much anywhere you want to go. We did take a cab to Granville Island and to the port on the day we sailed (lots of luggage and camera equipment!!), but found cabs to be plentiful and reasonably priced - I think it was about $6 to the port. I really don't think you need to be right on the waterfront in Vancouver. It's so walkable and easy to get around. I'm sure the Pan Pacific is fabulous, but that price just wasn't worth it for us as we wanted to stay three nights. Of course, the fact that we used Marriott points to pay for our room didn't hurt, either!A couple of years ago we stayed at the Pinnacle Hotel Waterfront on Hastings street. It was only a few blocks from Canada place, and easy walking distance from the train. We didn't bother renting a car, and were easily able to explore from there from Stanley Park to the Gaslight district on foot, as well as drag our luggage past Tim Horton's on our way to port to catch our ship. It was a very comfortable and friendly hotel, the price was better than the Pan Pacific, and we would stay there again.
