Well, I was waiting for some one to let me know one way or the other about the Listel Hotel, but since no one did- I decided to go ahead and book that package. I personally think it is a great deal (very inexpensive compared to other rates) and it does look incredible. MCF, if you are interested, I found the "book, bed and breakfast" deal at www.estays.com

Guys, if you put Listel into the text search box above, you will get two dozen threads over the past three + years about this hotel. Although not really first hand info, this is what I wrote about it in April 2002, <Good location on Robson Street, kitty corner from the Pacific Palisades. I only stayed there in its former incarnation as O'Douls's Best Western, and wasn't much impressed. As the Listel, it has been transformed into a chic, minimalist Ian Schrager-type boutique hotel, full of modern 'objets d'arts' in the lobby. When I was last in Vancouver on business, a colleague stayed there and liked it; I was glad I was in The Hotel Georgia.>

Thanks for your help Ron ... I have been doing web searches for Listel-but I always like to get the opinions of people on this message board.(Didn't even think of doing a search on here!!- but I am glad I did. I am POSITIVE I will really enjoy it there!!) Also, I found this great review at http://listel-hotel-vancouver.visit-vancouver.com/

Thanks to everyone for the information and website referrals regarding the Listel. We will probably give it a try in July

FYI - there are some great deals to be found on Priceline for Vancouver hotels. I just got a room at the Westin Bayshore (4*) on July 3 for $48. Westins are always nice, and I figure I can spend the extra money on activities!

We were in Vancouver late March (ablsolutely loved it) and stayed at the Pan Pacific the first night. Had a corner room on one of the higher floors-fantastic!! Our view was from 4-5 floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbour-sea planes taxiing in and out, bald eagles flying 5 ft.from our faces,ferries and other boats and the mountains. Who could ask for more? The room was quite large and comfortable. Concierge service was excellent and the hotels restaurant and entertainment was great. Ferried over to Van.Island for a few days and came back to Vancouver for another night before heading up to Whistler. Stayed in Vancouver at the Pacific Palisades-YUCK!! What a letdown after the Pan Pacific. Had booked the Sheraton or was it the Westin? for our last night in city (after Whistler) after "checking out" the accomodations at the Sheraton/Westin; cancelled the reservation and again stayed at the Pan Pacific in another corner room. End to a perfect trip. Yall have a great time!
Houston is home for me.

Thoroughly recommend the Delta Pinnacle. Get a Club room (free breakfast, soft drinks, gym entry etc.) with a harbour view. Ask for one of the corner rooms, great views of the bay, Stanley Park and the seaplanes from the floor to ceiling windows. We got all this for around $150 a night.

Have a good trip...

Just returned from a trip to Vancouver and Alaska. We stayed at the Century Plaza Hotel and I would recommend it. The room had a kitchenette and small dining and sitting areas. It was clean, modern, and close to everything--we walked everywhere in the city. Loved the Public Market at Granville Island! (Go there when you first arrive and you can leave your perishables in the fridge in your room.) Highly recommend the Century Plaza. By the way, to MCF who was interested in the Listel, we walked past it--it was located at the end of the shopping district on Robson Street. For what it's worth, it looked nice from the outside. Enjoy your trip!

had a hard time deciding between the Vancouver Four Seasons and Wedgewood Hotel. Finally decided on Wedgewood. I'm glad I did. I'd highly recommend the Wedgewood Hotel to anyone staying in Vancouver - service was wonderful and the room was beautifully appointed (Frette linens and upscale toiletry products, beautiful tapestry on bed); the bathrooms were marble (again, Frette towels and robes - the Four Seasons in Whistler had the same linens and towels) and the adjustable Kohler showerpiece is terrific. The chocolates upon arrival is an especially nice touch. The famous cookies at turndown were a nice touch although a bit overrated. Request a view overlooking the Robson gardens if you do book there. The location was fantastic and central to everything. Staff was extremely gracious.

I'd also recommend Brix for dinner. We were treated really well and had a perfect table in the window. Very nice entrees list, selection of tapas and wines by the glass. Top notch service and terrific at serving appetizers / tapas style throughout the varous courses (sometimes wait staff is not so gracious because of the several trips to overall price of meal ratio).
