Priceline is the way to go in Vancouver- consistant excellent awards and the lowest price.

We booked into Days Inn, 921 Pender St., downtown Vancouver. It was $111.00 for a double bed, 2 people. They are 2 blocks from pier and they will take you to the terminal. I didn't want to wait any longer as some of the other hotels that were close had already filled up. Might try there to see what deal you can get. Our travel agent said she had a client that just got back from there and he said he wouldn't hesitate to tell someone to stay there.

I have tried Priceline for 3 and 4 stars and have gone up to $80. They say they have no rooms for that price. What time of they year are all of you going that you got the good rates from Priceline? We will be there the end of May on a Saturday night.

Shall, we stayed at the Days Inn in 2002 and it was fine. Not elegant, but OK. Close to pier and Robson Street. Shuttle service to pier. Met our needs.

Sorry no specific info on Days Inn, but I can say it is a chain that is basic, budget, but known as being clean and decent.

We will be going on the Ryndam on May 29. So we will spend Sat. night at the Days Inn. Our TA told us a client of hers had stayed there (he booked it himself) and he said he wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone to stay there. That is why we decided to book there plus they have shuttle to cruise terminal. They are only 2 blocks from there so you'll be able to see some of the downtown area also.

I have been trying to get a hotel with Priceline for the last 4 weeks & have not had any luck. I need a room for two nights in July (prime season) and kept adding $$$ to my bid as well as expanding my area for a hotel. I went onto HotWire yesterday morning & requested all of the areas in Vancouver. I wound up getting the Hyatt Regency Downtown which they have listed as a 4* for $99.00 per night. I am very satisfied with this price.

No, once you book with priceline - it's yours whether you utilize it or not. No refund that I know of.

priceline does not allow me to specify 3 people in a room.
Would it be a problem after I got the room and call the hotel to ask for 2 double beds?

No you can call the hotel direct and request it. You are not guaranteed 2 double beds for sure, but I have done it serval times with no problem. It is only difficult when the hotel is booked up and all of the double rooms have been taken. Even then you can get a roll away bed. DOn't fall for the trap of having to pay a surcharge to guarantee a double bed room, just tell them what you want upon check in.

i got a room from priceline at sandman downtown for $75..
the problem is we will be three people in the room but when i called the hotel they told me that what they have available only for that day is one double bed...and they don't have rollouts..
i am forced to make a reservation thru them directly for another room at 122 Cad...

- i took the cancellation insurance from priceline, will it be a problem cancelling it if i invent any reason

I have never canceled a room that I booked from priceline so I don't know. I do know that at one hotel, they told me over the phone that they couldn't give me a double bed room ahead of time unless I paid an extra fee, but when I checked in and requested the double bed they gave it to me with no problem. Not sure what to do if the hotel is all booked up.

thanks...
i tried cancelling it, but they told me unless there is a divine intervention there is no way i can cancel it..

maybe i'll just do what you did and see if i can get a double bed room once i get there...anyhow, i still made the reservation for another room...

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency 9/2002. It has very nice, large rooms. I got it for $50 or $60, but that was late in the season. It's only a short taxi ride to the pier.

The Hyatt Regency is very nice. My family stayed there a few years ago, pre cruise. I stayed a couple of blocks away at a wonderful boutique hotel that I just loved. Can't recall the name of it but it ran over $200US a night backthen. I was able to get it at about $75 because I'm a travel agent.

I joined my family for breakfast the morning before we cruised - the hotel wouldn't hear of my paying for the "free" breakfast the room came with. My aunt's 2 room suite was beautiful. Didn't see the regular 1Q bed room my cousins had. They also had a nice pool area the kids used the afternoon they arrived. Due to a computer crash, no one could check into the hotel - couldn't access their reservation system for hours, but they gave everyone vouchers for drinks & appetizers at a nearby restaurant (or maybe in the hotel, I don't recall) plus a free bottle of champagne for each room, followed by special desserts-again, not sure if the desserts were in a local restaurant or what.

I just LOVE Vancouver. Been there twice, each time for one day only & I'd like to spend a good 3-4 days there alone. And, take one day to go to Victoria Is.

Have fun.
