Pan Pacific Vancouver

Hotel | "Pan Pacific"

Quote:
The hotel is excellent, and the view is magnificent. It’s an expensive hotel, but you'll sure enjoy the waterfront view, which is breathtaking, although the lobby is not typical (in fact, it’s a convention center). If you are looking for a traditional hotel and don’t mind a view other than the waterfront one, you better find another hotel.

Parking its really expensive, about C$27 per night, which is the cost of a hostel. It all depends on your budget. For the price of the Deluxe Waterfront View (C$300), you can get a bigger room in other hotels, but it all depends what you prefer. Rooms are clean and nice, with all the businessmen things in it.

The restaurant is not spectacular, but the view is. Once you take the elevator to the revolving restaurant (167m up) and see the great view of Vancouver at night, you forget what the restaurant is like. The food was not as good as we expected for the price, but we loved the view and we couldn’t care less about the food. You definitely go for at least a cup of tea and sit there for about 5 hours until they take you out. Take your camera with you and enjoy the view; the food is not the main attraction. Note: All of the restaurant moves, except the toilets and cashier, so you can wait in your chair until the toilets are in front of you – lazyyy, I know!! It takes an hour to complete one revolution. ...Read More

Stanley Park

Attraction | "Stanley Park Visit"

Quote:
It’s HUGE and the biggest "city park" in North America. It’s surrounded by some water, which makes the view more enjoyable. It’s all green, with beautiful white trees (I don’t know what they are, but they are really nice). There are some ducks and old trees to see, very, very old trees.

Hooters

Attraction

Quote:
The restaurant? It's fine. The girls?? You better go and make your own opinion. It's a nice place to relax, order some drinks, and have fun with your friends. DON'T TAKE a girl on a date to Hooters, or else you will not concentrate.

CN IMAX Theatre

Attraction | "IMAX"

Quote:
We watched SHARKS 3-D, and it was an interesting documentary for me because I can understand a bit of English, but it wasn't that interesting for my father, who didn’t understand a word the whole movie. Once you get there and pay your admission, they give you special glasses to see the movie in 3-D. Once the movie starts, you can feel like everything goes out of the screen, and everybody is with their hands trying to touch the things in the movie or taking off their glasses and putting them on again to compare what it’s like to see the movie without 3-D effect. You must go if you want to experience a 3-D effect.
