About Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia is among the world's most beautiful cities. Nestled between the panoramic Coast Mountain range and along the Strait of Georgia’s sandy shores, Vancouver's breathtaking blend of snow-capped mountains and open waters gives the city a flavour all its own. Vancouver’s west coast location ensures a mild oceanic climate. Winters occasionally see snow and summers are perfect for a variety of outdoor activities.

A typical Vancouver day might begin with a croissant and latte at one of the city's many outstanding cafés—dozens are within walking distance from the YWCA Hotel. Then a stroll to downtown’s trendy Robson Street, where you'll find exclusive designer stores, exceptional restaurants and a buzz of urban activity.

Then you’re just a few blocks from Stanley Park's famous seawall promenade, where you can enjoy the ocean air and the spectacular vistas of water, forest, city and mountains.

Looking for places to visit?

Why not take a water taxi to Granville Island where you'll find one-of-a-kind stores, unusual art galleries, restaurants, theatres and a superb Public Market offering goods and produce from around the world. Feeling sporty? Rent a kayak or sailboat and spend the afternoon cruising the gentle waters of English Bay.

Perhaps you'd prefer to relax on Jericho Beach, visit Canada Place, stroll through historic Chinatown or visit the famous Vancouver Aquarium. The possibilities are endless!

Whatever you choose, you can be sure that your room at the YWCA Hotel is never far from the action. The only hard part will be deciding what to do first. Skiing at Cypress Bowl? Sightseeing on Grouse Mountain? Hiking the trails at Lynn Canyon? A live show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre? You’ll find it all in Vancouver!
