The Amtrak station would be an inexpensive cab ride from your hotel. Maybe $10?

Translink operates all the transit in the Lower Mainland. They do have a trip planner on their website- you can enter starting point and destination and it will give you options.


You could catch the C21 bus right in front of the Amtrak station and get off at Richards and Pacific. You would then have to walk back one block to Drake and over 2 blocks from Richards to Granville to your hotel. Adult  fare is $2.50.

Your hotel is in an entertainment area that is recovering from being a rather sleazy area but is totally safe to walk in now. There are still some boarding hotels in that area so you will see a selection of street characters.

Because there are so many clubs in that area, it can be rather noisy late at night. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel. The view won’t be great ( the alley and other buildings) but the front won’t have a great view enice.ither.

If you are travelling from Downtown Vancouver over to Granville Island, Kitsilano etc remember the False Creek ferries and Aquaus, especially if the weather is nice.
