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.

... Great Lakes and also a man who was a travel writer from Vancouver. Conversation was pretty non stop and interesting to say the least. I must say that after this trip I will gladly do distance train travel again.
We got off the train in Jasper for 2 hours as they had to load more carriages on as there were an additional 60 people getting on. So we are travelling with 33 carriages, we started with 27. I tried the internet at the station but it was pretty **** so gave ...
Once upon a time, many moons ago, a young maiden explorer landed on the shores of the great British Columbia. Surveying the landscape around her, she liked what she saw. She wanted to stay. She knew that to survive this particular Northern escapade, however, she must find gainful employment. You know. To have money for Caesars and Poutine.
It's tough finding a job in Vancouver. When I ...
Well, this is it! Months of planning, preparing packing and moving are complete and all we need to do now to start our trip is pick up our bags and go to the airport. For those who don't know, our plans are as follows:
- Visit Scotland until late August, spending time with Iain's family who we don't get to see often enough
- Have a quick trip to Croatia in the middle of July (8th to 15th)
- Get married ...
Day 9: 1400 miles
I left Redmond early at Don's suggestion to avoid the congestion on the two-lane highway from Redmond to the freeway. Traffic going north was easy, and I got to Vancouver around 10:00. While my first port of call was the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology, along the way I saw this incredibly cool Safeway store -- just sitting there, with a huge building on top (I think it was going to be living spaces) -- ...
