Hotels in Downtown

Sitting right atop Canada Place, the Pan Pacific’s 504 rooms are just an elevator ride away from docked cruise ships and have the best waterfront views of any Downtown hotel.

Restaurants in Downtown

The dining room at this global-fusion restaurant is a stunner: downstairs, 40-foot ceilings soar above booths and tables; upstairs, diners pretend they’re sultans as they lounge on pillows around gauzy-draped tables.

Things to do in Downtown
