VANCOUVER ACCOMMODATION

UPDATED DECEMBER 2011

—With special thanks to Olga Borges (Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies, UBC), who graciously allowed us to reuse and amalgamate materials, research work, and organizational/design features from the Lodging and Travel Information page of the FHIS Graduate Student Conference 2011: Labyrinths website.

NOTES:

  • The following are merely indicated as suggestions, and are near UBC and easily accessible by public transport.
  • Hotels are listed in order of proximity to the Workshop (Green College, UBC), closest first.
  • Prices were last checked in January 2012.
  • The main list of suggestions is followed by links to further resources for information on Vancouver accommodation.
  • Do let us know if  you are interested in sharing a room or suite: we (the organizers) can then put you in contact with other like-minded participants.
