Where to Stay?

We're traveling to Vancouver for 3 nights in August. I'm not sure where to stay - hotel & area. I'm booking the hotel for my parents - mid 50's.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

You'll want to use the hotel selector at tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g154943-Vancouver_Bri… That way, you can indicate budget, dates, etc. I suggest first leaving the "Recommended for" drop down as 'all' - so that you get more hotels. Then change that box to Seniors if you get a larger listing.

Checking forum is a good way to start. Look for something in the West End, or on Robson St. Two good hotel choices.. Blue Horizon, the Sylvia, both mid range, excellent locations.

The Sylvia Hotel overlooks the beach and if the price is right would be an excellent choice. I stayed at the Hyatt which is in a handy location right in the heart of everything. Just avoid using any of there outrageously expensive services or dining and it's a good place for the "Priceline price". ;) Never would I pay full price to stay there with the hard bed, and ripoff prices... for example two eggs and sausage or bacon is $17.00 + tax and tip.

The Sylvia, the Sylvia, the Sylvia. My mid-50s parents love it and so do I. It is an ivy covered hotel with a variety of room types in a great location.

Try the Holiday Inn Express in Metrotown if they want to get around easily without driving. Unlike downtown hotels the parking is free, and it includes a hot breakfast. Attached to the monorail system called Skytrain which transports them easily and quickly to the downtown area and is is also attached to the largest mall in BC, Metropolis at Metrotown Mall. Worth a look.
