vancouver hotel near railway station for Rocky Mountaineer

Could someone please give me the name of couple hotels in this area with tariff tops about USD 200 per night. Do the cruise ships leave from nearby to here and if not could you also include a couple of hotels in that area too. thanks in anticipation.

There are no decent hotels near the train station but the train station is only a 10 minute ($15) taxi ride away from hotels close to the main cruise ship dock. There are lots of hotels near the cruise ships. Coast Coal Harbour, Pan Pacific, Fairmont Waterfront, Fairmont Pacific Rim, The Metropolitan, Four Seasons, two Marriotts and on and on. A hotel site like hotels.com will give you descriptions, locations and price ideas. Then you contact them directly and try for a better rate. I like the 4 star Metropolitan if you can get one of their good under $150 rates. If you want to splurge check out the lovely Fairmont Pacific Rim.

please don't stay near the train station. As mentioned stay downtown and take a cab. You may also ask RM as they do transfers but if its more than $15 its easier to take your own cab

I think the Georgian Court Hotel has a free shuttle that will take you to the train station?

Hostels and needles near the station..... But as Alegre said... a $15.00 cab ride from any of the hotels downtown will get you there.. and that is probably including tip as well.

You want to just double check what station you are leaving out of. If you're heading to Jasper/Banff/Calgary then you are boarding at 1755 Cottrell Street, if you're heading to Whistler the boarding location is in North Vancouver on the corner of 1st West and Philip Avenue.

I agree with everyone else, I wouldn't recommend staying close to the train station. You're best to stay downtown and then hop a taxi in the morning.

Some more reasonable hotels in downtown Vancouver that offer good location are:

Blue Horizon Hotel

Hampton Inn

Landis Inn & Suites

Cascadia Hotel & Suites

Holiday Inn Downtown (Howe St)

Good luck and have a good trip!
