Vancouver, British Columbia, is among the world’s most beautiful cities. Nestled between the dramatic coastal Rocky Mountain range and along the shores of the Strait of Georgia, Vancouver’s breathtaking blend of snow-capped mountains and ocean beaches gives the city a flavour all of its own. Vancouver’s west coast location ensures a mild oceanic climate. While the winters occasionally see snow, the summers are perfect for a variety of outdoor activities. The gay village along Davie Street is one of Canada’s largest and most exciting LGBT experiences.
Downtown Vancouver’s YWCA Hotel is the safe, comfortable and affordable family-friendly alternative for all travellers with rooms ranging from single to quint. Conveniently located, the hotel is near to BC Place, Rogers Arena (formerly GM Place), plus the Queen Elizabeth and Playhouse Theatres. It is a short stroll away from Robson Street, the city’s popular shopping mecca and one block from Stadium SkyTrain for convenient public transportation. The YWCA Hotel warmly welcomes all travellers—men and women alike—with comfortable, safe, and affordable accommodation in the heart of downtown’s art and entertainment scene.
