Exploring Stanley Park: Things to Know Before You Go

Victorian hotel VancouverLocated in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Victorian Hotel is a newly renovated boutique with 47 beautifully appointed rooms. However, beyond its vintage-y vibe, the hotel is most reputed for the fabulous downtown location. Staying at the Victorian Hotel, puts guests in close proximity to many of Vancouver’s greatest attractions, including the world-famous Stanley Park.

Arguably Canada’s most notable green space, it’s easy to wile away an entire day just hiking the trails or meandering through the lush gardens. But there is so much more. Stanley Park offers easy access to the Seawall, features several secluded beaches—and let’s not forget about the Vancouver Aquarium.

Getting to Stanley Park from the Vancouver Hotel is incredibly easy. Just hop on the #19 along West Georgia and either get off at the entrance next to Lost Lagoon—or let the bus take you straight into the heart of the park. For those ready to expend a bit of energy, the Seawall runs through Coal Harbour just five minutes from the Hotel, allowing pedestrians to walk, bike, or skate their way into and around the park.

Aside from the super natural wonder, Stanley Park also contains a number of paid attractions, including a pitch-and-putt course, the Forest Train, a lovely tea room, and several restaurants. In the summer, visitors can also enjoy Theatre Under Stars, which is showing their rendition of Cinderella and 42nd Street this year.

The very best part about staying close to all these attractions is that there’s not far to go when it’s time to call it a day. And with deep soaker tubs, super comfy pillow top mattresses, and the complimentary Healthy Start breakfast, you’ll be completely refreshed and recharged next day.
