Virgin Holidays View
Set in the northeastern portion of Vancouver’s north-central peninsular, the Best Western Downtown overlooks False Creek, a boating area that’s home to the annual Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival.
The popular Downtown district is the heart of the cultural quarter and entertainment centre with many galleries, theatres, cinemas and award winning restaurants and bars. The nearby South Shore is the setting for the 2010 Winter Games Olympic Village and if that inspires you to take healthy walk on the wild side then Stanley Park, home to the famous Beaver Lake, is just a short cycle/walk/skate away! You can enjoy zingingly fresh seafood and flavourful soups and salads in the family-friendly White Spot restaurant and don’t forget to pay a visit to the rooftop patio for some of the best views over the city - breath taking at sunset!
