CHRISTMAS 2013 IN DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER
Spend a night in downtown Vancouver this Christmas season, and enjoy the lights, music, and fun of this special time of the year. At the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville Hotel and Suites and Convention Center in the city center, you’re close to all the favourite attractions Vancouver has to offer over the holidays.
Granville Street is a great place to start your Christmas season visit. Music shops, clothing stores, malls, restaurants and more are only steps from our front doors. After the shopping day is done, Granville Street Entertainment District is fun late into the night.
There’s great shopping along Vancouver’s famed Robson Street, only three short blocks from our front doors. Featuring the likes of Lululemon, Zara, Banana Republic, Roots, and many more flagship shops, and with easy access to Pacific Center Mall, you are bound to find that perfect gift.
Also nearby is the historic district of Gastown, “where old meets new.” In Gastown you will enjoy festively lit streets, historic architecture, fine fashions, cafes, pubs and clubs, and the renowned Gastown Steam Clock.
You can experience a traditional German Christmas Festival on the plaza at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on West Georgia Street, where you will find the authentic tastes, smells, and sounds of an outdoor Christmas Market in a quaint village setting.
But Christmas in downtown Vancouver is more than just shopping. Fabulous Christmas light displays can be found right across the downtown peninsula. The St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation Lights of Hope is just up the street. Jubilee Fountain in Stanley Park has hosted a Christmas display since 1936. The Carol Ships Parade of Light celebrates its 52nd year in 2013! At English Bay, a grove of stately elm trees are draped with thousands of Christmas lights. Above the city, coloured lights are strung up atop the tower at Harbour Center, looking like a giant Christmas tree.
There really is so much to see and do this Christmas season in downtown Vancouver. From the annual Santa Claus Parade, to great Christmas shopping, to Christmas displays and more! Book a room at the hotel, and make your Christmas season 2013 a fun and festive time to remember!
