English Bay Hotel
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
I woke up this morning to find it raining so I mated a quick dash into ' Dollars and Cents' and bought a 2 dollar umbrella which has been invaluable as the rain did not stop all day! This morning I caught the' Hop on Hop off' bus to explore Vancouver. The driver gives a commentary about the area, it's very interactive. Initially I was the only one …
After saying goodbye to Cailin and Chris in Whistler, I traveled to Vancouver with Greyhound, then caught the bus to English Bay. The transport system here is very good and all of the streets are well signed. After settling in to the hotel I headed out to explore Stanley Park. Was unsure if I would go to the Aquarium so made a snap decision to go …
So I am sick :( which I am so not happy about. It's just a common cold but it's still annoying when you are on holiday. Spent most of yesterday in bed and missed Hamlet at Bard on the Beach but did manage to go to Granville Street for about an hour last night.. came back feeling like **** but still I'm glad I did, it was pretty cool to see the …
Ok so this isn't a sightseeing post, this is a Random Things I've Noticed About Vancouver post:

* There are no timetables at the …

TravelPod Member ReviewsEnglish Bay Hotel Vancouver
The English Bay Hotel may not look much from the outside, however room I stayed in was large, it had a kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave, plates & cutlery. There was a lot of storage and free wifi (always important when travelling). But what makes English Bay Hotel "A Great Experience" is that if you are lucky enough to get a streetside room, then the view alone is worth way more than what the roomrate is.
I had a wonderful view of English Bay and every night the sunset was simply spectacular. Even the day where there was rain & a thunderstorm!! This alone gives this hotel a 5 star rating from me. It was definitely a room with a view.
