VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2014) - As with real estate, many things contribute to a hotel's appeal, but the biggest factor by far is its location. And in Vancouver, locations don't get any more enviable than the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel's West End address. From conferences to shopping, foodie epicenters to urban galleries, the city's rich tapestry of attractions is within steps of this Vancouver hotel near the cruise port.

As one of the most elegantly inviting Vancouver hotels near Stanley Park, this property lets guests experience the upscale accommodations of a premier hotel alongside the natural splendor of the city's oldest and largest park. Visitors find themselves just a six-minute drive away from Stanley Park, where trails, beaches and gardens share space with organizations like the acclaimed Vancouver Aquarium.

Even closer to home is the Harbour Green Park, which resides just one block away. Its undulating green space forms the longest continuous waterfront park in Downtown Vancouver, which translates to spectacular views of the harbour.

Of course, those who'd rather stroll among the more than 200 shops and cafes of Robson Street can easily do so from this hotel's location in Downtown Vancouver. Situated just seven blocks from the world-renowned street, the hotel makes it easy to spend the day shopping, dining and viewing the masterpieces at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

At the end of Robson Street, pedestrians will find themselves in the trendy neighbourhood of Yaletown, where warehouses are now stylish lofts, condos, galleries, boutiques, restaurants, pubs and even the occasional movie set. Or travellers can set off by foot to the historic Gastown, whose Victorian and Edwardian architecture vie for attention with the artist studios, antique shops and the world's first steam-powered clock.

Granville Island is also easily accessible from these luxurious guest rooms and hotel suites in Downtown Vancouver. Guests have only to hop aboard a water taxi to find themselves in the midst of Vancouver's legendary Public Market. After savouring the smells and samples of food vendors and artisans, travellers can explore the various markets on offer, including the Kids Market and the Maritime Market.

While there's plenty to indulge in, Vancouver attracts its share of business as well. And the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel welcomes its corporate travellers with a wealth of conveniences. In addition to its 20,000 square feet of high-tech event space (including two outdoor terraces) and full-service business centre, the hotel is just two blocks away from the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Business or pleasure, this property is positioned to let guests experience the best of Vancouver with ease.
