Top Answers To Vancouver Travel Questions

    There are a number of good hotels in Vancouver and the surrounding area, depending on what you want to see and your price range. If you want to be right downtown, I'd suggest staying at any hotel along Robson Street, Georgia Street, Burrard Street or Yaletown. You can walk anywhere downtown from those locations. English Bay has some great views so you might want to stay down there. Then there are the hotels along the marina close to Stanley Park. Stay away from any hotel on East Hastings Street - it's skid row.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find anything that fit your exact requirements. If you're willing to leave from a different city, you can plan something with Vacations By Rail, ExploreRockies.com or even Orbitz.

    18 years in Alberta, 19 years everywhere else. BC just lowered their blood alcohol levels from .08 to .05, so be sure to take a taxi wherever you go.

    Both cities should be a lot of fun. I haven't actually been to Montreal, but have visited Vancouver a couple of times. Lots to do there, including some outdoorsy stuff if you head over to Grouse Mountain or around Stanley Park. Granville Island has a nice little market and outdoor stalls and cafes for browsing. The Museum of Anthropology over on the University of British Columbia campus is quite impressive (though it's a bit of a hike to get there). The nightlife happens around the Gaslight District, though must say I felt a few of the areas nearby were a bit sketchy at night. Another Canadian option to consider would be Toronto, which has loads going on and an eclectic mix of cuisines and ethnic neighborhoods. There's some nice little galleries and bars over in the Distillery District, plus St. Lawrence and Kensington markets are both fun to browse. Enjoy!
