My wife and I vacationed starting in Vancouver, BC ending in Anchorage, AK. We stayed at the Marriott downtown for convenience (walking distance to the cruise terminal and Stanley Park). The hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff when out of their way to be helpful. This hotel cannot be in a better place for downtown activities. The city of Vancouver is fabulous. Our stay for a day and a half was not enough to take it all in. Highly recommended.
