I have said before that Vancouver is not a cheap city for either visitors or residents. When visiting Vancouver, consider staying in a budget hotel instead. This allows you to spend your money on activities and experiences rather than accommodations. All of the properties listed below average under $100 per night for two people.
Howard Johnson Hotel
The Howard Johnson Hotel Downtown Vancouver is an eco-friendly property located directly on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver, which means guests stay in the heart of the entertainment district. This hotel would benefit visitors who want easy access to Vancouver’s best sights, as it is a short stroll from Granville Street’s entertainment venues, the Pacific Centre, Granville Island Public Market, West End, and BC Place.
Hilton Vancouver Metrotown
I know it is unusual for a Hilton Hotel to be included in a budget list, but if you have always wanted to stay in a Hilton property this might be your chance. The Hilton Vancouver Metrotown is located right next to Metrotown, the biggest mall in Western Canada. Guests are only a short train ride away from downtown, but they may not want to leave the hotel. The Hilton has a complimentary casino shuttle, an on-site restaurant and bar, and 24-hour room service.
Lonsdale Quay Hotel
A stay at Lonsdale Quay Hotel offers guests a chance to visit North Vancouver, just a 20 minute ferry ride from downtown Vancouver. You will be steps from the Lonsdale Quay Market, which is open year-round. In summer, hundreds of locals and visitors enjoy the North Vancouver Shipyard Markets every Friday, which is less than five minutes from the hotel. Each room has a private balcony, and the hotel offers a news-stand, gift store, hair salon, and on-site shopping.
English Bay Inn Bed and Breakfast
English Bay Inn Bed and Breakfast is in Vancouver’s West End, a great neighbourhood filled with excellent restaurants and bars. English Bay has a great beach and is renowned for its beautiful sunsets. The Inn offers guests a comfortable and intimate stay, with only six guest rooms. The complimentary breakfast is an added perk, plus visitors don’t have to go far to get to Stanley Park, Vancouver’s urban oasis.
The Georgian Court Hotel
Known as one of the city’s gems, the Georgian Court Hotel is in Vancouver’s hip Yaletown neighbourhood. This means all the city’s amenities are nearby, as are Yaletown’s scrumptious dining options. The Georgian Court Hotel offers guests a complimentary shuttle to nearby attractions, including Coal Harbour and the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park. There is also an Orchid Floor for ladies, which includes additions like curling irons, yoga mats, and magazines for that extra touch.
This list offers a budget hotel option for everyone, from those who want to stick to the city to guests who want a Hilton experience to visitors after an alternative option like North Vancouver. It is evident that there are an abundance of cheap hotel choices in Vancouver for under $100, which means you’ll have plenty of savings to spend on enjoying your surroundings instead.
