Hotel rates in Vancouver go down quite a bit in the winter. It’s not unusual to find the shangri la, pacific rim, rosewood for less than $200 a night.

Seattle is getting ridiculous for hotels though.

Nice to have this much time to devote to policing threads. Some of us still have to work for a living.

Jeez Mike where the hell are you staying in Vancouver, lol? When we go and because our friends are mostly in Yaletown-Granville-Kits we stay typically at the Westin Grand; the last time out - in the summer - an 18th floor suite w/2 queen size beds was about $250........

You’d be staying with your friends this weekend, it looks like.

Sometimes you find a bargain basement deal with no addons, for sure. But it doesn’t always work out that way.

It's overpriced right now; shrug. Most hotels for the same search are under $250, many under $200.

Looks like the attack on the cruise ship industry continues. Ben wants council to ask the CRD to impose fees of about 5x the current price for cruise ships to dispose of garbage at Hartland.

Ben "Idiot" Isitt is always grandstanding.  Not a fan.

I believe that at heart Isitt's objections to the cruise ship industry is more an objection to the bourgeoisie...the people spening their money on travelling, rather than any concern for the environment.

I believe you are exactly right about that Hotel Mike. At the very least he should have the courage of his convictions, but he doesn't even have that much integrity.
