Great views of Vancouver, it was not busy the day we went so we got to spend as long as we wanted admiring the views. Loved that you can reuse your ticket in the evening to also take in the lights.

After spending a day site seeing in Vancouver, it was fun to go up high and see the entire city and where we had been. The views were amazing. The ticket allows one to come back again in the same day. For instance, later at night to see the city lights.

This is a beautiful spot in Vancouver to get a panoramic view of the city/mountains. The price is very affordable given that you have access all day! My boyfriend and I went up 3 times in total and even had a beer up in the restaurant. I highly recommend this for tourists. Be sure to visit during sunset!

Nice views of the city but difficult and expensive to get up there. Pro tip...buy the "City Passport" discount book for $20 when you arrive in the city, gets you up there free!

Great for the overview of the city, interesting info boards around the views gives an insight into buildings and the development of the city. Little confusion as to where to get the lift as the glass ones are currently out of service and we were told to go round the corner to the other lifts and 'wait for someone to... More

The wonder of flight is almost replicated as you soar upward in a glass elevator on the outside of the building. Eats are available at the sky level but it may be cheaper to eat at street level.

I've gone up many times over the years with my family in the elevator but this is the first time taking the 34 flights of stairs up! Doesn't take to long to climb up and the 360 degree view is still great!

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. It was a pleasant stay and the location was great. Walking distance to great restaurants, shopping etc... We had dinner at the restaurant in the look at and found the service to be very good and the meal quite nice. Sunset dinner and killer views were definitely an amazing way to end... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
