The benefit of staying downtown is the close proximity to so much of what the city has to offer. This is especially true when staying at the Victorian Hotel. We are located within walking distance of 4 distinct Vancouver districts. The financial/shopping district to the west. The trendy restaurants of Yaletown are just south of us and both Chinatown and the historic neighbourhood of Gastown is right next door.
Gastown was rated the 4th most stylish neighbourhood in the world (so says Complex Magazine of New York). There may be some debate, but it is undeniably cool with an urban edge and diversity that makes it so uniquely interesting.

The evenings come alive and the atmosphere is charged as music pulses from the many varied outdoor patios. Yaletown is a sophisticated playground in a unique and dynamic corner of the city, just 4 blocks from the Victorian Hotel. Many of Vancouver’s more trendy eateries are housed here in heritage buildings in what was once a commercial warehouse district. Cool boutiques and upscale fashion design shops complement the list of reasons to visit this distinctive neighbourhood. See the latest news about Yaletown at http://blog.yaletowninfo.com.
