Victorian Hotel: A Winter Itinerary for Vancouver
Vancouver makes for a superb winter getaway. As a boutique hotel in Vancouver, the Victorian is close to many indoor and outdoor attractions, which range from culinary to cultural. For those visiting for just 24 hours, hotel staff put their heads together to create a stunning 1-day itinerary.
With close proximity to Robson, Granville, and Gastown, the Victorian Hotel offers quick and easy access to any number of coffee shops, bistros, and elegant cafés. Sample a few snacks and then get ready to take off across the country, without ever leaving the city. FlyOver Canada, located at Canada Place, offers a stunning 4-D virtual flight across the country. Besides stunning sights, the senses are stimulated by effects that include wind, fragrance, and mist.
After landing from this stunning 4-D adventure, venture out to the Vancouver Harbour Center, with the Vancouver Lookout, which provides a stunning 360-degree view of the city, the North Shore Mountains, and even Vancouver Island. Tickets are valid all day, so make sure you come back in the evening to catch the sunset!
Of course, no trip would be complete without a little shopping, and from here it’s just a quick trot to Vancouver’s shopping Mecca–Robson Street. Besides many fine chain stores, guests will find a variety of independent boutiques with souvenir shops dotted around the landscape. Additionally, Granville Street, another famous shopping area intersects Robson.
From Granville, grab a bus and return to Waterfront Station where it’s possible to join a bus tour and sample your way through Vancouver’s craft brewery scene. This sightseeing tour has been rated the #1 brewery tour in Vancouver on Trip Advisor for five years in a row! Just don’t drink too much, because there’s still plenty to see.
At this point, it’ll probably be time to return to the Vancouver Lookout for sunset.
Consider stopping by Hy’s Encore, which honours its Victorian heritage, much like the Victorian Hotel. Both the décor and architecture are rich in tradition, and according to many locals, the food is simply unmatched.
When it’s time to return to the hotel, enjoy the comforting warmth of a bath in the deep soaker tub before a long, restful night on a cozy pillow top mattress. Before checking out next day, enjoy the complimentary Healthy Start breakfast in the lobby. And if you have any questions or concerns, the friendly staff members at the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver are always on-hand to help.
