hotels near rogers arena for game 1

Today after HOURS of calling and searching I got tickets to game 1. I have never been happier in my life. But I'm from kamloops and need a hotel near the arena for june 1st. Everywhere I call is sold out, does anyone have any suggestions? All the hotels I've called downtown say there are a number of large conventions in town during that week and all the downtown rooms are booked

Does anyone have any advice to help me get a decent room. I want to stay somewhere nice, not a pay by the hour joint haha.

Any advice is appriciated!!!

L'Hermitage on Richards St

http://www.lhermitagevancouver.com/

Ive been to all the hotels, probably the best bet and very close. Good deal for how nice it is

Edit-- Nevermind, probably booked. Try anyway

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g1...ia-Hotels.html

Go down the list and call them all. Theres not much else we can do. We can't call for you.

I also recommend

http://www.carmanaplaza.com/suites/executive.html

GREAT suites. Doesn't feel like your in a hotel. Awesome leather couch set and very spacious! Theyre usually not sold out

I also recommend carmana for anybody just wanting to get some friends together and watch the game if their house isn't ideal. Theyre actual condos and have a great living room set and a nice t.v and you can head right downstairs for all the celebrations afterwards

Really depends on how much you want to spend. Hotel Vancouver and the Four Seasons are only a few minutes from Roger's Arena. If you want to spend a little less, there is a Sandman on Davie and a Holiday Inn on Howe, which are not too far from the Arena and in the heart of DT

My recommendations (having been to them all)

L'hermitage (beautiful kitchen for making and having drinks and closest to arena)

Carmana (spacious and an actual condo)

Sandman on Davie as somebody said. Good deal and they have penthouse suites for very cheap (In the low 200s, can't remember) which includes inroom jacuzzi (with wall mounted tv above) and a killer view with a balcony

I suggest paying the extra bit at sandman on Davie. Dont confuse that with the other Sandman in Vancouver. The other is outdated.

Four Seasons/Pan Pacific are too businessy and very plain. Also overpriced

If you can't get something downtown, try one farther out with easy Skytrain access like the Metrotown Hilton. It'll take a few more minutes to get to the game, but if you're driving down you'll more than make that up by not having to drive downtown to the hotel.

I recommend the Metropolitan. It's opposite the Four Seasons and for the money (if they have any room) it is great value.

If you fail to find anything, there's always the option of staying at the River Rock Casino (they have a Hotel there), and the prices aren't too bad - as they expect you'll be gambling.

It's near the airport but has a Canada Line station (3 or 4 stops from the airport) right outside and is about 15 minutes by Canada Line from downtown (Yaletown or Waterfront) which again is only a 10 minute walk to Rogers Arena.

In fact, I'm impressed with that idea. Check that out.

Yup, my suggestion would be to get something around Metrotown (Burnaby) or the airport (Richmond) if you can't get downtown. Both have skytrain access that will fly you downtown in under 30 mins.

There is alot of hotels downtown, no need to get outside Vancouver, alot of them have alot of rooms. Plus oddly enough, rooms dont really get cheaper away from downtown.

Good luck finding anything (at a reasonable price) for this Wednesday night. I'm in the hotel industry. Most downtown hotels have been sold out for months. There's a MASSIVE citywide conference taking place until the 3rd.

Don't know how old you are, but if it were me making the trip out I'd be seriously looking into Hostels. Ticket prices are expensive enough and you can just spend your days out and about in the city. Check into a hostel just as a place to crash for the night and save yourself the extra $100.

http://www.thecambie.com/hostel/book

Looks to me like the Cambie is available for tomorrow night. You can get a dorm for just under $30.

He just said he wants to stay somewhere nice and you recommended the Cambie?

There's an Executive Suite at the OPUS Hotel for $559 + tax on Expedia. Not terribly overpriced given:

- they're one of the pricier hotels in the city, normally
- second nicest room at the hotel
- city is sold out

Why not try a hostel?

The Samesun Backpackers hostel on Granville is not too bad.

Cheap and has a bar at street level (The Beaver)

Co-Ed rooms @ $64 for two days (May 31 to June 2), leaves you more money for beer at Rogers Arena (trust me, you'll need it @ $8.50 a pop)

Since you probably don't care about brand name hotels, just goto hotwire.com, plug in 4 or 5 stars, and, bam, savings.

I stayed at the Georgian Court (1.5 blocks away) for game 2 of Nashville series and it was a nice hotel. I am staying there again for game 2 of SCF!!
