British Columbia hotels offer a bit of everything, so whatever you're looking for, you can find Canada's westernmost province, which stretches from the border of Washington State up as far north as Alaska and the Northwest Territories. Both on and off the beaten path, British Columbia accommodations provide hospitality to those who come to experience this one-of-a-kind scenic wonderland. Whether you book a room in the heart of Vancouver, along the shore of Vancouver Island, or somewhere else, you will a chance to enjoy a vacation to savor.
The bulk of the populations and the BC Canada hotels are located in the southernmost quadrant of the province, close to the US border. Vancouver offers a wealth of things to do and places to explore, including the seaside Stanley Park. Many of Vancouver's British Columbia hotels are within walking distance of this great gathering place. The Sylvia Hotel, housed in a tower built in 1912, offers hospitality just minutes from all the action of downtown Vancouver. Some of the 120 rooms overlook English Bay, while others provide views of the city core. With attentive service and welcoming hospitality, the Sylvia may feel like something out of the past. But make no mistake, this hotels offers everything modern travelers demand. Four-legged guests are welcome, and a walk through Stanley Park is something both Fido and his owner will enjoy.
British Columbia hotels are also plentiful in the Okanagan Valley. This populous valley in southern BC enjoys an abundance of sunshine and weather perfectly suited for growing fruit and making wine. In the heart of wine country, the Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa (pictured) offers luxurious surroundings without pretension. The 226 suites and villas provide all of the comforts of home, and then some. As they're soaking in the views of Lake Osoyoos and the surrounding vineyards, guests of Spirit Ridge will enjoy an escape from the every day. In addition to the guestrooms, this fine choice for British Columbia accommodations offers a spa, access to a golf course, and a restaurant specializing in wine country cuisine.
While the Okanagan Valley is a top favorite in the summertime, when the snow starts falling, people's attention turn to the ski resorts sprinkled throughout the province. Few resorts are more famous or as big as the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort. Plenty of British Columbia accommodations are found on and near these twin mountains. Whistler's options for BC Canada hotels are open year-round; even when the weather is warm, there are plenty of fun things to do at this bustling destination. The Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside is within walking distances of the gondolas that whisk you to the top of the either mountain. At a sister property, Pan Pacific Whistler Village Center, the package rate includes morning breakfast and wireless Internet connections, as well access to the outdoor pool deck. The saltwater pool is heated, as are the hot tubs with a view.
Moving farther north, British Columbia's population gets sparser and the scenery more dramatic. That doesn't mean you'll have to stay in cut-rate accommodations or mud huts. You'll find a mix of luxury hotels, comfortable budget accommodations, and everything in between on the list of northern BC Canada hotels. Esther's Inn, one the Prince George hotels, brings a taste of the tropics to Northern BC. Even if the snow is piling up outdoors, you can warm up at the pool or read while sitting in a lounge chair. The 118 guestrooms, ranging from singles to expansive suites, are wrapped around hallways overlooking the tropical gardens. The onsite restaurant and lounge also offer a taste of the tropics.
