One of Vancouver’s top attractions is nothing more than a paved pathway that stretches some 28 km (17.5 miles) around the city’s waterfront. As you make your way along the route, every corner reveals a different breathtaking view – the majestic North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge arching into West Vancouver, the sandy beaches of English Bay, the First Nations inukshuk statue that inspired the Vancouver 2010 Olympic logo, the glittering downtown Vancouver skyline, and the sun high over Burrard Inlet. Within walking of the hotel is Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, Gastown dated back to 1867. Today, the district retains its historic charm and independent spirit. Victorian architecture houses a thriving fashion scene, impeccably curated décor boutiques, one-of-a-kind galleries and some of the best culinary fare in Vancouver.
