The 442-room, business-friendly Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront places guests a stone’s throw from the city’s cruise terminal, convention center, Granville and Robson Street shopping, and historic Gastown. The guestrooms are modern but not sterile, thanks to a warm palette of red, cream and gold, and all have mod cons such as Keurig coffeemakers and free WiFi – but the balconies, which offer panoramic water and mountain views, steal the show. At the lobby-level P2 Bistro, guests can fuel up with eggs benedict for breakfast, dig into Dungeness crab cakes for lunch and tuck into a seared salmon filet accompanied by a Pacific Sunset martini for dinner. An indoor pool and Jacuzzi, the Club Lounge and a 24-hour gym round out the offerings.
In the Area
Vancouver attracts adventurers and urbanites alike year-round. In the warmer months rent a bike from EzeeRiders Seawall, fly-fish with a guide from Pacific Angler, or take a day hike on Dog Mountain. Come winter you can go ice skating in Robson Square and snowshoeing on Grouse Mountain. In town, make a splash at the Vancouver Aquarium, shop for fresh snacks at Kitsilano Farmers Market before hitting Kitsilano Beach, or see Stanley Park from a horse-drawn carriage. Sample Vancouver’s justly famous seafood with a sushi feast at Miku, or shuck to your heart’s content at Rodney’s Oyster House. Then toast a day well spent with craft cocktails at L’Abattoir.
How to Get There
I may have had similar problems at other harbor front hotels. The high cost of parking combined with a ridiculous power outage on our first night in the hotel plus a street closing half marathon on the back end of the trip plus mediocre service in the restaurant left me wishing I had stayed somewhere else. Breakfast and service was better on BC Ferries or any McDonald's.
The in room mini fridge froze all my drinks and foods. This was disappointing as the items were ruined. When I called the front desk they suggested I pull out the fridge to look for the dial but I was unable to pull the fridge out and the damage wasn’t already done to my items.
Our room was noisy but had a great view of the downtown area. Ask for a waterfront room and it would be even better. Great location, easily walk or taxi to anywhere. Many restaurants within 1/2 mile..
