The Buchan Hotel is on a luscious tree lined street next to a charming garden but my heart sank as we entered the lobby. It looked quite shabby and poorly maintained. I was apologizing to my travel companion and kicking myself for not making a good choice. The TV was smaller than my iPad and had only a few awful stations. Tiny bath with only a shower and barely room to get around the beds.
We went out immediately in search of food and discovered an ENDLESS array of multinational cuisines less than a block away. These all looked a bit shabby as well.
HOWEVER: That night the same Denham Street, a half block away, lit up the night. The street was packed with Ferraris, Mazeratis, Bugattis, Bentleys and a few humble Porsches. Neon lights blazed and young hipsters threaded their way up and down the street in search of the perfect meal. And they didn't go far to find it. I discovered a large percentage of the restaurants I had placed on my "go to" list were with a block or two of the Buchan Hotel. Handmade Asian noodles, sushi bars, Greek, Italian, and countless subcultures were fully represented. Stanley Park was just a few blocks away and a walk of several blocks in either direction took us to the water. Robson Street, shopping mecca of Vancouver, was just two blocks.
AND, as far as the hotel goes, it was clean, the towels were fresh and fluffy, the linens were immaculate, the staff was extremely helpful. Coffee available in the lobby in the morning. The Wi-Fi was a bit wobbly but they took off the $2 charge when we asked.
SO: If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive place to sleep in an ideal location, try the Buchan Hotel.

Favourite campsite: 1) Jasper - quiet and friendly neighbours; 2) Kelowna; 3) Golden Golf Course RV park - demoted due to mozzies!
Favourite animal: 1) Cute sea otter (Tofino); 2) Boo the Bear; 3) Duck duck moose! (strictly a clothing store, but we wish it was a real animal! Chelle's only sighting of a moose, albeit cartoon)
... shin indicated to me it was time to take our leave...
One thing about Princess Cruises, they never leave you at a loose end.. always an activity of entertainment to occupy you..
There had been Naturalists, a female Iditerod winning musher ( who loved cats..) and park rangers from the various park areas we entered both on shore and in the ship... all very informative.. We did not bother with the cabaret and comedians...
During the plane ride coming here thousands of thoughts went through my mind. Thoughts of, is this really the proper decision, will I miss my friends and family so much that I am going to get lonely and wish to return to Ottawa. Will I not meet good people and not develop decent friendships and so on… My mind seemed quite restless during the entire 5 hour flight. I'll admit that I was a ...
