Vancouver hotel recommendations

All being well, we're going on an Alaskan cruise from Vancouver next year.

We're coming to the point where I need to think about booking flights and hotel. Having never been to Vancouver before, I don't know where to start! We'll probably stay at the hotel for 2 nights before the cruise and 2 nights after the cruise so we want something central to allow us to do some exploring.

Can anyone recommend a hotel they've stayed at? My parents will be with us so will definitely want something a little bit luxurious.

Thanks

We stayed at the Pan Pacific before and after our Alaskan cruise. It's not a particularly atmospheric hotel, probably a bit clinical for some tastes but we just loved the view of the bay from our hotel window and the view of the Disney Wonder which docked just below.

We loved it and would definitely stay there again

We stayed at the Loden five years ago when it was our 25th wedding anniversary. It is in Coal Harbour so fairly close to the cruise terminal. The room was lovely and large, and while it is a luxury hotel it was not as expensive as the ones nearer to the waterfront.
It is within walking distance of the waterfront, Stanley Park and Gas Town. They have a courtesy vehicle, an old London cab, that will take you to local destinations, including the cruise terminal. I seem to recall they also had courtesy bicycles, but don't quote me on that.

My TripAdvisor review is here

They actually had two London cabs.

While you are staying in Coal Harbour try White Spot for inexpensive diner style food, breakfast menu is good. And for a fantastic seafood dinner try Cardero's

It was very good, and walkable to most places.

I stayed at the Blue Horizon last September ahead of my cruise and loved it - Iím making plans to return (when the world opens up again!) and will be booking there again.
I fell in love with Vancouver and only had a day there, so really want to go back and spend more time.
