Subject: Re: Hotels Victoria and Vancouver
Hi Beverley,

Vancouver and Victoria can both be quite expensive in August. We travel to Victoria quite a bit and oten stay at either the Queen Victoria Inn or Harbour Towers hotel. Neither is anything particularly special but they are both in good locations especially the Queen Victoria Inn which is behind the Empress Hotel. The Harbour Towers offers Suites which might work well for 6 people as well as regular rooms.

I've noticed rates seem to be quite high on the Queen Victoria web site and we've always done better by telephoning there and asking what "specials" they have.

Having said all that, the last time we were there and the last time we were in Vancouver we booked Priceline rooms and in both instances we got Marriots. The Marriot in Victoria is particulary nice. I don't know if you are interested in going this route.

Any questions, please ask. Regards Judy Abbotsford BC
