My husband and I LOVED Vancouver we stayed at the other Luxury Marriott across the street from the Pinnacle and enjoyed ourselves it was very contemporary style. We ate at this great Indian restaurant on the strip where all the restuarants and shopping are, and went to a great Jazz concert that night. I advise you to take a walk along the strip and pick out a place that appeals to you it was very safe and we had a fantastic time. We visited only a day because our cruise ship was leaving the next afternoon for Alaska but we made the most of it in one day. We do plan to visit Vancouver again be sure to go to the park it was really beautiful it's right behind the hotel we were in ask your concierge they will give you many choices on where to go and what to see.
We stayed July 4th weekend at Renn Vancouver just accross the street from the Marriott. You will have a great view of the harbour and the seaplanes taking off. The resteraunt scene is great. 3 fav's were Cin Cin, mediteranian and upscale very very good. Joe Forte's seafood casual and not a walk, Dockside not a walk but a nice bike ride.
Enjoy your trip!
