Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites North Vancouver
Travel Blogs from North Vancouver
Arrived in Vancouver this morning after an uneventful flight though their movie choice was poor - Hotel Grand Budapest and Rush the only decent choices.
Arrived at the hotel by 9am and unpacked the bikes and got into our room early allowing us to get onto the local trails by 11am or rather 4am Aussie time. We just guessed where to go but ended …
We all woke up hoping for and got a clear day. The weather looked good. Yes whale watching. Then the hotel phone rings - ehhh. They tell us that there is a 1.5m swell in the sound and with the 20+ knots predicted it won't be pleasant enough to run the cruise so its off to reschedule. Damn - and now the disappointment sets in. Then the "what are we …
The chance of experiencing rain in Vancouver is excellent; especially if the previous week was gloriously sunny.
Plan A: Whale watching (as there are still whales everywhere, including orcas, and they don't care if its raining, so neither shall we)
Problem: rain isn't the problem. Predicted high winds and hence high seas are. …

Time to temporarily leave the United States and travel to a Commonwealth country. Yes we were off to Canada.

Fantastic place to stay for preparation for the BC MTB race. They have been more than accommodating for those with bikes allowing us to bring our expensive bikes into our rooms without any drama - even provide cleaning opportunities with both bike and muddy clothes.
Churchill's bar is also a great place to wind down as are the pool and spa.
Definitely would stay again if biking here again.
