Five Star Vancouver hotels

Most popular areas in Vancouver for 5-star hotels

You’ll find most of Vancouver’s 5-star hotels concentrated in the city’s Downtown, and in the adjacent Waterfront neighborhood, just north of Downtown, overlooking Vancouver Harbour. Downtown is a great place to stay, featuring an exciting mixture of cutting-edge contemporary buildings and historic properties. Downtown and Riverside also offer easy access to historic Gastown with its handsome Victorian buildings and independent bars and restaurants. You can choose 5-star accommodation right in the heart of Downtown, or opt for one of the choices in Waterfront where some hotels offer superb views across Vancouver Harbour.

The most popular things to do in Vancouver

Vancouver is a buzzing city, but you can escape its urban delights by taking a trip to the 1,000 green acres of Stanley Park, just to the northwest of Downtown. You can walk or bike along the 5-mile seawall, explore the park’s lush forests, or, during the summer months, go for a swim at the outdoor Second Beach Pool. If you’re in the mood for some shopping, visit the historic Granville Island Public Market, a covered market selling all kinds of food, including fresh produce, seafood, and baked goods. In summer, there’s also an outdoor farmers’ market there offering locally grown delicacies like blueberries and cherries. Make a date with the city’s rich cultural life by paying a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery. The outstanding collections here include regional indigenous art, photography, and contemporary works from Asia.
