Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountain Range, Vancouver is truly spectacular by nature. A unique geographical location has earned Vancouver the reputation as a playground for all ages. From the 1000-acre lush jewel known as Stanley Park to the chic and fashionable Robson Street, Vancouver is a city of unparalleled beauty. Its vibrant, pedestrian-friendly streets are filled with individuals of varied ethnic backgrounds and walks of life people-watchers, shoppers, celebrities, business people, university students and, of course, visitors. This city enjoys the best of all worlds: four distinct seasons and showcases snow-capped mountains, ocean-side beaches, outstanding hotels and restaurants, one-of-a-kind entertainment, cleanliness and safety. With its diverse neighborhoods, convenient locale and natural beauty, it’s no surprise Vancouverites love their city and we are sure you will too.


Located in the heart of Vancouver, you will never feel more at home than at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre. Step outside the doors and into the celebrated sites of the city. Stroll leisurely through the boutiques of Robson Street and Yaletown, take a Sea Wall Walking Tour with friends, and create memories at Stanley Park and the Vancouver Art Gallery, all just blocks away.

Slow down and take in the views of the skyline and the Pacific Ocean from your room. Jump into the heated swimming pool, ease into the whirlpool to get refreshed or get re-energize at the health club. A warm welcome awaits you at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre.
