Yes, Lord Stanley is a great spot. Also along the harbor and within walking distance are the Fairmont Pacific Rim, the Pan-Pacific, and the Westin Bayshore.

It’s also a beautiful drive up to Whistler, and there is some great hiking there. You can easily send a day or two there in the summer.

I agree 100%. I stayed at The Lord Stanley in the past and it was a clean/fresh cherry hotel and very convient to everything we wanted to see/do.

GREAT TRIP - we stayed at the Marriot Pinnacle in Vancouver down by the Harbor and the Four Seasons in Whistler - wished we would have stayed in Whistler a few extra days. Took a day trip to Victoria, BC by ferry. Van City is one expensive city - second most expensive to live in next to Hong Kong. 1200 sq ft bungalows selling for $1.5M CAD.

I have a friend in Richmond, just south of Vancouver, whose 1970s 3,000 sq ft split-level on 1/4 acre is valued at $2.5-3 million. He’s thought about selling and retiring early - the only problem is it would cost him too much to buy another home unless he moves away.
