TravelPod Member ReviewsBuchan Hotel Vancouver
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.

... with PTSD though. He walked down to the party with us. I think it was as unusual for him as it was me. Sure was decorated great though. Lots of great lights inside of cloth made to look like blinking sea urchins. Must go to sleep.... Joanna flies out tomorrow. I'll miss her but, I think she is doing the right thing. She needs her kids and they need her. I'll stay here an extra day before heading to ...
... and then had the shuttle drop us off at Canada Place. We were able to get a first look at the Silver shadow docked next to the Disney Wonder.
Next we caught a complimentary shuttle bus to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. We explored the park for just under two hours and then took the complimentary shuttle back to Canada Place. We then walked a few short blocks to the steam clock in Gastown just ...
I feel so creatively inspired here in Vancouver. I have special connections with so many artistic people in this city, and they make me so excited about my growing list of pending future theatre projects. Last night I slept over at Steph Izsak's home atop a very tall and comfortable pile of mattresses. I cannot believe how accustomed I have become to being a ...
... Canucks top! It's so nice!
Then that evening (and the highlight of my day!!), I had dinner with Steve, Sheryl, Chelise and Chris. We had such a yummy dinner (thank you again!!) and was so nice to catch up and see family. I do truly feel really lucky knowing I have family so close by (even though it is still a large distance, still closer than some of the others).
