just made a trip from seattle to victoria and vancover. a good doable area. seattle was very nice. the waterfront marriott is in the heart of the action great location. the marriott victoria was probly one of the best hotels i have ever stayed in. great location,best rooms with a view of the harbor and a staff that should teach hosbitality to the rest of the marriott hotels. if i am in vancover i would chose rennasance over marriott. just a better feling and a more caring staff.
