Otherwise the cleaning service is available if preferred. There is also a standard guest registration which can be completed and returned via email. Transit system (city bus) is a half a block away...takes 20-25 minutes to arrive at all these hot attractions! Or via car... 1 minute from the best cup of coffee in the city (Bump n Grind)! 5 minutes from Downtown Vancouver 6 minutes from beautiful Stanley Park 7 minutes from the Harbor 25 minutes from the airport (glad to provide directions either by car or transit) 1 block from restaurants, entertainment and bars 1/2 a block from the bus stop 3 minutes from the skytrain 1 block from the community center( pool, gym, library, ice rink, etc.) 8 minutes from the Vancouver Aquarium 3 minutes from Roger's Arena 5 minutes from GM Place 6 minutes from Science World 5 minutes from the Vancouver Convention Center 7 minutes from the Vancouver Train Station We don't only offer the best location for guest visiting beautiful Vancouver but a great place too! Comfortable and cozy, located on Commercial Drive... Read what visitors have to say about our neighborhood-Commercial Drive... ' It (the Commercial Drive') is a glorious sight with all it's trees, character homes, wonderfully diverse people and the beautiful Grouse and Cypress mountains in the background...Authentic Italian coffee bars, fine dining, live music and theatre, art exhibits, and unique shopping, attract visitors from all over.' So welcome to our suite, where we offer prices that guest just can't refuse and where you'll enjoy privacy on your vacation with no one else cohabiting with you...
