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.

... the millionth time that you can't buy alcohol at a grocery store only at a liquor store. Pizza and a beer back at the apartment was followed by an early nite for everyone although we had only travelled for 2hrs the rest of the group had travelled continuously from the previous day and were shattered! Whistler looked amazing and we tried hard to imagine what it would look like in the winter with the ...
... corner and is across the road from Stanley Park but the best part is it is surrounded by hundreds of cafés, restaurants and pubs and is only a ferry ride away from Granville Island!
We are currently staying in our 3rd temporary accommodation. The second one we stayed at was in North Vancouver it was a lovely little basement apartment and the owners were so nice we even saw a squirrel in their backyard. The one we are staying at now ...
... of the harbour. Then we went back to Yvonnes house for dinner. Her local area is very similar to Titirangi with hills and trees and water. Light rain which was very nice but still mild. A lovely dinner at a real persons home with a few drinks and lots of laughs. We have really missed a home meal where we can relax and chat and don't have to eat off a menu. This hasn't happened since South Africa so was very ...

Vancouver. Tady jsme před třemi lety začínali a já tu teď trávím své poslední kanadské dny. Vlastně jsem to celé už nějakou dobu plánoval, že se zajedu na závěr podívat do Vanu a skončím to putování právě tady. Asi bych si to, tak jako v případě Revelstoku, neodpustil, a tak jsem musel zase přijet, zavzpomínat a užít si toto báječné ...
