Visitors to Vancouver will find a full range of accommodations, from bed-and-breakfasts to luxury hotels with views of the harbor and mountains. Most of the hotels are modern high-rises, and several of the best are clustered around the city center, near shopping and attractions such as the Vancouver Art Gallery. There are also a variety of wilderness hotels and resorts for those who enjoy (or are in need of) peace and quiet.
Vancouver's high season runs mid-June to mid-September, when the city fills up with tourists and conventioneers, and rooms in larger hotels become scarce. Accommodations in the spring and fall are much easier to find, and rates tend to be somewhat lower.
In addition to the room price, you will pay a 3% hotel room tax, a 1.5% destination marketing fee, 5% GST and an additional 8% provincial sales tax.
