We are family of 4 (kids 9 and 12 years old) that plan to fly to Vancouver next year on 6/20, stay for 4 nights at Vancouver downtown, take a Alaska cruise from 6/24 to 7/1, then fly back home on 7/1.
After doing a lot of research, I have narrowed our hotel choices to the list below. All of them are under US$300 during our stay, which is our budget. Since we don't plan to rent a car, what we are looking for is close to attractions, restaurants, cruise terminals, etc. What do you think is the best choice for our trip?
Also, do we need to carry Canada currency in Vancouver or credit card will be accepted everywhere? Thanks for your help.
1) Times Squire Suites (So far my favorite. My only concern is the noise since we have been living in quiet suburb neighborhood).
