E...could you please recommend a neighborhood or area of Vancouver where we can stay one night before our HAL cruise to Alaska. I have been to Vancouver twice and the last time we stayed in the Richmond neighborhood. However, this area has gotten very pricey for a one night stay. We'll have a car and I am willing to drive to the outskirts of Vancouver to stay in a pleasant and interesting area where the hotels will be nice and hopefully reasonable.
Any other suggestions you have will be appreciated.
