My husband and I are doing a 10 day road trip of British Columbia with my 89 y.o. mother and would like to stay in Vancouver for three nights. What area in Vancouver should we stay, given that my mother has some difficulty walking. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.
Stay in English Bay - It's in the West End of downtown. (close to Deman St and Davie St)
There are nice views of the water and Stanly park, and everything is right at your doorstep. No need to move very far for restaurants, food, the beach, etc....
Some hotels in the area (which I have never been to - so I don't know what they are like!) ->
Coast Plaza Hotel
Best Western Sands
The Sylvia Hotel
I just looked them up on Hotels.com almost 5 years ago
Agree with the above answer ! The West End (Davie/Denman are major cross streets) is a great place to stay (I just moved here). Very quiet at night, but you can walk (or take the little passenger ferry) to everything, including Stanley Park, the sea wall, "several beaches, downtown, Gastown, Coal Harbour, and Granville Island and the Sky Train. The Sylvia Hotel is an iconic Vancouver hotel and has great views of English Bay.
I also like staying at the Westin in Coal Harbour. almost 5 years ago
