The Hyatt Regency Vancouver reopend in March 2002 after an $18 million renovation. It is centrally located among downtown Vancouver hotels in the business and entertainment core. The location overlooks a mountain-rimmed harbour, is only two blocks from Robson Street and Pacific Centre, and also close to theatres, 1,000-acre Stanley Park, Granville Island, and Grouse Mountain for skiing and recreation.
For more details visit the Hyatt Regency Vancouver website.
An ideal, picture-postcard setting; you will just want to relax and breathe deeply! Jagged mountain peaks, sandy beaches, and beautiful clear blue water surround the best part of British Columbia - Vancouver. Mountains, forests, and oceans are the very elements that make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
A rich ethnic mix of cultures has provided Vancouver with incredible diverse restaurants and shopping areas. Languages spoken are English, Chinese (the second-most-common language), French, Punjabi, German, Italian, Tagalog (Filipino), Vietnamese, and Spanish.
There is an abundance of parks in Greater Vancouver - two forest reserves within city boundaries, Stanley Park and Pacific Spirit Regional Park. There isn't a form of entertainment that cannot be found: arts, theater, music, and professional sports. You are going to love visiting Vancouver, and you are going to want to stay!
