In Downtown Vancouver, near the harbor but a bit far from most popular destinations
The Tropicana Suite Hotel is in the northeastern part of Downtown Vancouver, a long (13-minute) walk away from the nearest SkyRail station.
Downtown Vancouver is the the financial and commercial hub of the city. It's bustling during the weekdays, when tourists and locals fill the streets -- but empties out at night and on the weekends. However, Robson Square is always alive, featuring restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
This budget hotel on the edge of Downtown Vancouver features drab, motel-quality one-bedroom suites. It's a family-friendly option, though, with kitchenettes and pull-out sofas, as well as laundry facilities and an indoor pool. Note that the Carmana Plaza's apartment-style rooms are a significant step up in terms of quality, so it's worth comparing rates.
