Attended the Courage to Comeback awards last week. What a wonderful worthy cause. The night was at the West building and wonderful views of the water. It is truly amazing when a venue can feed 1500 people in a timely organized way, and the food actually being perfect! Thanks for the great evening.

One of the most beautiful convention centers in the world. It is impeccable, modern, the roof is echo friendly covered with grass to reduce energy consumption and the views of the bay of Vancouver and the mountains, with the hydroplanes that get in and out of the harbor is simply breathtaking. Very well organized Congress and is definitely an outstanding... More

We had the pleasure of being assisted with obtaining a rental vehicle, after coming back from Hawaii on a cruise ship, and a customer service representative was very helpful, providing phone service, aiding in directions, and looking after our luggage while we walked through downtown Vancouver to the Budget Car Rental for a vehicle to operate for the day. Outstanding... More

I attend a conference here every year. Very walkable place with plenty to do nearby. You have shops and restaurants without needing a taxi. It's pretty safe. Train stations are nearby so it's very easy to get to and from the airport.

First time in Vancouver and attending TED conference, astonished about the setting, wherever you look it's breathtaking! The convention centre as expected is huge but the fact it is surrounded by glass from inside it's just spectacular to look out!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
