As a Vancouver boutique hotel, the staff at the Victorian Hotel know all the most interesting places to visit. Whether it’s an outdoor adventure or shopping downtown, Vancouver is a city with limitless options. Even better, most of these are walking distance or just a short ride from the Victorian’s downtown location.
Just beyond the front door, a short walk away, Beautiful Canada Place sits on the harbour. This is an attraction that attracts about three million people each year, and it’s the site of many special events, including the 2010 Winter Olympics.
In the opposite direction, you’ll find the shopping mecca knowns as Robson Street. However, if the history of the city seems more intersecting, Gas Town is just a short jaunt away. As Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, Gastown is filled with galleries, designer boutiques, and, of course, a wide variety of restaurants. In fact, some of the cites finest eateries are located here. And just further afield is historic China Town, another neighborhood awash in history and wonder. Make sure to check out the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, which is especially recommended for gardening enthusiasts.
Those fixed on city highlights should definitely check out Stanley Park, Canada’s largest park. Fantastic in its own right, Stanley Park also contains its own attractions, including the Vancouver Aquarium, a pitch-and-putt course, and, of course, the Forest Train, which is sure to delight the young and young at heart.
Another not to be missed city highlight is Granville Island, which is just a short bus ride away. This is a haven where the crafty and curious can enjoy all things artisanal, organic, and handmade.
No matter where your trip takes you, or how much energy you expend, at the end of the day the Victorian Hotel will offer indulgence and comfort in the form of luxury pillow tops, soaker tubs, high speed WiFi, and flat screen TVs. There’s even a complimentary Healthy Start breakfast, so you’ll be set for day 2 of your adventures.
