Downtown Vancouver is home to the Business, Shopping and Nightlife Districts. Although a major city, Vancouver is spread over a relatively small area, which makes getting around the city a breeze. Downtown you can find Robson Street, Vancouver's most famous shopping district. Just off of Robson, you will find high-end boutiques, luxurious hotels and divine restaurants.
Head North of Robson Street and you will find yourself heavily immersed in Vancouver's Business and Financial District. Tall skyscrapers tower the streets and locals dressed in power suits charge down the sidewalks. Mixed amongst the concrete and glass you will find many cafés and perfect spots to stop and have lunch at. The Art Gallery Café within the Vancouver Art Gallery is always a great spot for lunch, and you may as well take a tour around the VAG while you're at it. If you're looking for a place to stay, Downtown Vancouver has more than a handful of top quality places to stay. The Sutton Place Hotel on Burrard St. is popular amongst the film industry, while the Wedgewood Hotel offers an intimate boutique hotel experience. The Fairmont Waterfront offers spectacular views of the North Shore moutains.
Canada Place is on the edge of the Business District, perched on the water and looks out over the water onto North and West Vancouver. Canada Place is home to many conventions and events that attract visitors from far and wide. Nestled at the back of Canada Place is the IMAX Theatre, where the movie list is constantly changing. Canada Place is also the anchor point to many cruise ships and during the summer it's a busy hub as the ships come and go. © NileGuide
