Vancouver & Victoria
In the summer of 2003, Vancouver was awarded hosting rights to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Still 6 years away, preparations are already visible, and the excitement in the city is palpable. Prices on real estate, restaurants, and hotels are sure to go up. Fortunately, at present, fabulous restaurants and accommodations are still a steal in Vancouver and Victoria, compared to Toronto or Montreal. VANCOUVER Accommodations The Gallery Floor at the Listel Vancouver (1300 Robson St.; & 800/663-5491 or 604/684-8461) proved such a hit with guests that a museum floor was the next logical step. For the past several years, guests on the penultimate Gallery floor have been able to enjoy original works of art from Vancouver’s Buschlen Mowatt Gallery, temporarily displayed in the Listel’s ever-so-tasteful rooms.
