    The Listel Hotel in Vancouver's West End is a great hotel to retreat from Robson Street's bustling shopping district. Clean, comfortable rooms offer quiet and the hotel is close to izakayas and cafes.

    The Bay department store is excellent for last minute items if you're traveling. Pack up some men's fragrance and accessories on the go or as gifts. Nice selection and great prices.

    Vij's Rangoli serves up some of the freshest Indian food in Vancouver. Drop in for a curry at this small modern South Granville cafe, take home ready-to-eat entrees, and snap up their cookbook too.

    Uva Wine Bar on this inviting corner of the Moda Hotel not only offers shaken cocktails and sips of wine, but breakfast. The city offers few places for a morning bite so stop in for eggs and espresso.
