    A real find in Vancouver Overlooks English Bay. Restaurant and Lounge particularly good, with waterside views. Only drawback is no A/C .Pricing is well within most visitors budget for a large city. Staff friendly and helpful

    West End
    A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
    verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
    Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
    paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
