Decide Between Short vs Extended Vacations in Vancouver

From gorgeous seawalls to a thriving art and theatre scene, the city of Vancouver has something to offer everyone. While some tourists prefer to visit the main tourist attractions in their short visits and get a flavor of Vancouver, you may find it an unforgettable experience if you extend your vacation to a month or more, and in doing so, experience the pulse of the city and explore it in full. A brief vacation suits people who can’t take too much time out of their busy lives, but if you do afford the time, there are many perks to an extended vacation and it may cost much less than you think. 

Pros of a Brief Vacation

The scenic views that Vancouver has to offer will surely make a lasting impression even if you stay for just a week or less. The quality of your vacation heavily depends on the place you choose for your stay. At Sunset Inn and Suites, you get the best of both worlds. With a hotel that is close enough to the seawall that you can bike there with your friends and family, but far enough from the downtown area that you get to experience the peace and quiet you crave from a vacation. Even if you have only a few days to spare, there’s no need for the fear of missing out. The attractions of Vancouver will help you forget all your stresses and unwind. Our welcoming and friendly staff will make your stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. We make sure to provide our guests with the best services and make you feel at home. 

What You Must Visit During a Short Vancouver Visit

Vancouver makes a fantastic vacation destination for a horde of reasons. An exceptionally safe and clean city, you will never have to rethink your decision if you come to Vancouver with your family. During your short stay, you can prioritize the main tourist destinations so you do justice to the great city. These destinations include Stanley Park, Granville Island, Grouse Mountain, Kitsilano Beach, Chinatown, and the Museum of Anthropology. These places can’t be missed if you are coming to Vancouver. All these family-friendly destinations boast unique experiences for tourists of all ages. If you do not have young children along with you and are more into mingling and partying away from the stresses of the year, there are many bars and clubs that will suit your preferences. There are malls, high-end restaurants, and bustling nightlife centers all within walking distance of Sunset Inn. The Seaside Greenway you can walk to is the world’s longest waterfront pathway. This ensures that in conjunction with a comfortable stay, you will not need to sacrifice visiting many essential tourist spots during your short stay. 

Reasons to Choose Sunset Inn for a Brief Vacation

Sunset Inn and Suites make a great choice when your stay in the city is short. 

Here are just a few of the reasons for you to let us show our hospitality:

  • Complimentary continental breakfast
  • Gated parking for your car
  • Wired and wifi Internet options
  • Exceptionally welcoming and accommodating staff

Pros of an Extended Stay

If you can extend your stay in Vancouver, you get the additional benefit of steeply reduced rates with a room at Sunset Inn for more than thirty days. For a longer stay, you might want to shrug the feeling of being a guest and feel at home away from home. Our staff goes above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. In the time you stay with us, you will be able to get to know the city of Vancouver intimately and by the time you have to leave, you will know that you have done justice to your vacation in the great city. If your stay is associated with work or study commitments, the extended stay rates at Sunset Inn, coupled with the amenities we offer make it the perfect choice for you. Although you lose some of the benefits that come with daily hotel rates, such as our complimentary continental breakfast, the trade-off makes your stay much more affordable. The free parking is a luxury that few hotels will give you in this area. 

Get to Know Vancouver

Imagine daily walks to the seawall, bike rides to curated art galleries and dinners at any number of diverse restaurants. The gorgeous beaches will sap away at any tensions you may be carrying over from your busy life. Enjoy long walks along the beach in the beautiful summer weather. Vancouver is best in the summer as it opens more options for outdoor activities. A bike park tour is a great way to spend the day outside and explore the city while getting a little exercise. The ideal summer weather makes just walking in the streets a fun way to spend your day. For a more in-depth tour of the city, tag along with the wonderful tour guides in the city. A whale-watching trip or going snorkeling and kayaking near the seals is bound to make your trip unforgettable. If your visit lies in the winter season, revel in the once-in-a-lifetime experience of watching the northern lights by the lakeside. The art, music and theatre scenes open your mind up to a world of possibilities and help you appreciate the finer things in life. The only downside to staying in Vancouver for more than a month is that you will never want to leave. 

Consider it the perfect vacation for your family or a fantastic weekend getaway to spend some quality time with your friends and make unforgettable memories together.
