Hotels in Vancouver offer incredible glimpses upon a city whose nicknames include Vansterdam and Lotusland. Once also known as Gastown, Vancouver has grown from a small saloon into a major Canadian city. One of the biggest draws here is the city’s natural surroundings, which offer both winter and summer entertainment by way of activities like skiing and kayaking. We’ve searched hotels in Vancouver and can say that we are pleased with the findings, not only the accommodations but also with the local scene. Music, theater and arts, coupled with breathtaking mountain, water and city imagery make this a city worth visiting for more than a day. Before we get to these hotels in Vancouver let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Archaeological evidence suggests that people may have inhabited the area around Vancouver for over 8,000 years. Early explorers may have included Sir Francis Drake, the English privateer, explorer and pirate, who in 1579 is said to have visited the area. Simon Fraser, a Scottish explorer and fur trader, set foot on the land circa 1808. As with several large cities along the Pacific coast, Vancouver’s prosperity can be attributed much to the gold rush of 1858. Another important early commodity was timber, which Captain Edward Stamp attempted to capitalize upon with his building of Stamp’s Mill in 1867. On the edge of what would become Hastings Mill was a makeshift tavern that was established by “Gassy” Jack Deighton, for which the original settlement would come to be called.
One of the most livable cities in the world, Vancouver sits seaside on the Pacific coast and is the most heavily populated city in British Columbia. With a population of over 600,000 people, Vancouver today is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Canada. The city’s climate ranges from an average winter low at just above freezing while average summer highs hover in the low 70s degrees Fahrenheit. Major points of interest include Downtown Vancouver, Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park, Robson Square, Chinatown, Port of Vancouver, University of British Columbia, Granville Island, Bard on the Beach, Vancouver International Film Centre, Science World, Granville Entertainment District, Rogers Arena, Pacific Coliseum, BC Place Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Commodore Ballroom, Orpheum Theatre, Vogue Theatre and Gastown. Known also as Hollywood North, the city is a popular filming location, with several movies and television series having been shot in the area. The most popular food items come from the sea, and include salmon, halibut, sablefish, prawns, crab and more. The city also has a cocktail named after it, consisting of gin, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, orange bitters and lemon peels. Now that we have some background information, it’s time for hotels in Vancouver that will help make for a memorable trip.
