Guests are then asked to present the card at Tourism Vancouver's flagship Visitor Centre conveniently located less than a mile from the hotel at 200 Burrard Street, where it can be used to book activities or swapped for the $125 HBC gift card. The Vancouver 125 promotion is valid for reservations made before December 31, 2011 for stays prior to March 31, 2012.
