Bright lights, big city! Fancy shops, innumerable restaurants, pastry shops, bakeries, ramen shops, wine bars -- you name it, it is here! I love this part of Vancouver. It is young, international, lively, bustling and fun.

Robson is one of the main downtown Vancouver streets. It is a good place to walk around and see many of the stores, large and small, and restaurants in the area. It is also a good area in general to take in the local scene and flavor of Vancouver. Our hotel was on Robson and we enjoyed walking all around... More

this is probably the best place you can go for shopping in vancouver. It has ALL the shops you possibly would visit for shopping from Sephora, Michael Kors, nordstrom and also places to eat in the surrounding area if you get hungry.

When hunting for a hotel, try to find one on or accessible to Robson Street for your first time in Vancouver. Great culinary options for all budgets, bars, cafes and shopping run the length of the street. Easily walk to Stanley Park, Art Galleries and Museums - public transport connections run off this artery.

Whenever I'm in Downtown Vancouver, I often end up on Robson Street because of all it offers.

And the Vancouver Art Gallery,... More

We stayed at Hampton Inn on Robson. Shopping is just a walking distance away. We were there for Black Friday shopping and with a weak Canadian Dollar, life was good!!!

A great street in downtown Vancouver, full of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and shopping, It's busy day and night! A restaurant I would highly recommend is Joe Forte's ... but you must make a reservation. It's extremely popular & always packed. The food is excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed dining on their rooftop patio. A visit to Vancouver wouldn't be... More
