The Best Of
Vancouver Waterfront Hotels

Vancouver waterfront hotels are amongst the most stunning hotels offering some of the best views in the world. The waterfront hotels on the north edge of Vancouver offer outstanding views of Vancouver’s coastal mountains making their way to the world renowned ski resort of Whistler. The south facing hotels offer great sunsets and beaches.

Most Vancouver waterfront hotels and accommodations share the Vancouver waterfront through its outstanding Seawall Walkway. Vancouver tourists embarquing on an Alaska cruise would be best to choose a waterfront hotel on the north side of Vancouver in the Coal Harbour district. Taking two or three days to visit Vancouver prior to your Alaska cruise will be extremely rewarding.

The Seawall begins in Coal Harbour, around Stanley Park and ending at Kitsilano Beach Park! The Stanley Park Seawall Walkway is total of over 22Km or over 13 miles in length! Bike rentals are readily available on the corner of Denman and Georgia, at the entrance to Stanley Park. You may also rent in line skates or roller blades in this area.

Vancouver waterfront hotels with close beach access are located near English Bay. "Waterfront" hotels in this beautiful city are limited. We suggest you book your favorite hotel and the best room available as soon as you can.
