Hotels in Vancouver
Hotels in Vancouver are typically on the expensive side. While most luxury rooms will set you back at least $225 a night, it’s also possible to find more modest but reasonably priced accommodations in the $100-$200 range. Visitors looking for hotels in Vancouver with a more unique, welcoming vibe should consider staying in one of the city’s numerous bed and breakfasts, which are scattered throughout the city and surrounding suburbs.
