Vancouvers main dock at Canada Place is the edge of downtown. Its very central to everything as Vancouver is rather compact so easy to get around. Anywhere in the downtown Core would be ideal. Robson street is the main shopping corridor but you can't go wrong if you select anything in the west end.

When you get off the ship your virtually downtown. Its actually a good area since all the tour buses, shuttle, and HOHO buses depart from Canada Place. Hotels close by are the Fairmonts, two Marriotts and the newer Coast hotel, Coal Harbor.

If your ship is berthing at Canada Place, you are 5 min walk from city centre. What class of hotel are you looking for? what amenities do you want to have?
