Attractions and Things to Do:
When you set out to book your next stay in Vancouver, consider staying in a hotel with conference rooms to optimize your experience. Hotels with conference rooms will provide you with business class wireless Internet, a fully equipped business center (so you won’t have to pack your laptop), and on-site dining. You’ll also usually get a central, if not a downtown, location. In Vancouver, conference space comes in all sizes. Leisure travelers will have the downtown location and all the business amenities, as well as the convenience of city entertainment and dining.
If you’re looking for a small space to have a private meeting, or bring coworkers together for an hour or two of one-on-one time, then the L’Hermitage and the Comfort Inn Downtown Vancouver hotels would be perfect to suit your needs. Both of these hotels provide you with a downtown location near the business district of Vancouver so you and your colleagues can easily return to work after a lunch meeting. These two hotels also place leisure travelers within a fifteen minute walk or bus ride of great restaurants, the Rogers Arena, and BC Place.
When looking for a large space to host an out of town training or company holiday party, then the larger spaces at the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver Hotel and the Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre are your best bet. You have to drive about seven minutes out from the business district of downtown Vancouver, but you’ll be able to host large events easily.
Hotels with conference rooms also place you near public transportation, so you’re not required to have a rental car during your stay in Vancouver. The Vancouver public bus system is centrally located in downtown Vancouver, and makes stops near all the major intersections and landmarks. Leisure and business travelers alike can easily get around no matter where their destination in the city. If you find that you do require a rental car to and from the airport, then be sure you park at your hotel. Parking in downtown can be expensive and a hassle, so take advantage of the short walking distances and short bus trips to your desired destinations.
