Travel Writer Recommendation: Best Western Chateau Granville


Super natural, Vancouver, B.C., was thrust into the spotlight earlier this year with the world presentation of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. This vibrant city is nestled at the base of the Coast Mountain Range on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

A truly beautiful city, Vancouver has a plethora of wonderful attractions available to visitors some of which include:
  • Stanley Park (larger than New York Central Park)
  • Vancouver Aquarium
  • Gastown
  • Chinatown
  • Yaletown
  • Science World
  • Capilano Suspension Bridge
  • Granville Island
  • Robson Street
A perfect option for accommodations within walking distance of many attractions is the Best Western Chateau Granville (1100 Granville St., Vancouver, BC V6Z 2B6, Tel: 604-669-7070). With summer rates starting as low as CAD $149 per night for a Tower room ($119 Courtyard; June through September), the price and location are hard to beat.

Tower One Bedroom Suite
Our room at the Best Western Chateau Granville room featured:
  • large 450 sq foot suite with a generous living room with sofa, television, microwave, coffee maker & mini fridge (can accommodate up to 5 guests)

Travel Writer Approved!
Even though the Best Western Chateau Granville is a somewhat older hotel (as are the majority of hotels in Vancouver), the cleanliness, comfort, location, and value more than make up for anything it may lack cosmetically. I would recommend the Best Western Chateau Granville to anyone visiting Vancouver for business or pleasure.
