5 Favorite Vancouver Family Friendly Hotels

5 Favorite Vancouver Family Friendly Hotels

#Vancouver has it all; #mountains to the East, the Pacific #Ocean to the West, skiing, great food, public transport, shopping, cycling, and more. But where to stay can be more complicated, so here is my list of #family friendly hotels for all #budgets.


Vancouver, British Colombia is one of my favorite places to visit. 

A sparkling city with mountains to the East and the Pacific Ocean to the West, Vancouver has it all: beautiful coast, world-class skiing, and incredible shopping and restaurant options. When I stay in Vancouver I love to stay downtown. There is so much for families to enjoy in the center– Granville Island, Stanley Park, and a myriad of cheap fresh food all accessible by bike, train or public transit. I have put together a list of favorite hotels to fit a variety of budgets. I hope this makes planning your family trip to Vancouver a little easier.

The Westin Bayshore, Vancouver

The Westin Bayshore Vancouver is right on the edge of Stanley Park. The hotel has a walking path right in front; head one way to the Vancouver Aquarium and water playground or go the other to the Coal Harbour playground and Italian ice-cream shops! 

Kids enjoy complimentary kid’s packs with toys and treats, and a free in-room movie. 

The outdoor pool is incredible on nice days or you can play in the indoor pool on cooler days.

The Westin Bayshore is a more expensive stay but worth the money if you are looking for something special.

Times Square Suites

Time Square Suites is one of the best Vancouver family friendly hotels that has everything I love for a comfortable stay! It is conveniently located right next to Stanley Park and includes amenities like a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and separate sleeping for kids and grownups. This cheap to mid-priced hotel is not posh, but it gets top marks in my book for comfort, convenience, and price.
