Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Hotel, Vancouver, B.C.
(Note the recent name change: formerly the Delta Pinnacle Hotel)
Located in downtown Vancouver, in the heart of the business district, the four diamond Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle is an architectural marvel, a gleaming tower standing proudly above the city’s vibrant skyline. Only a short block from the city’s waterfront, it is also a few blocks from the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre, cruise ship terminals, Robson Street shopping and Stanley Park.

Standard rooms - CA$160 + 17% tax
