Then and Now Vancouver Hotels

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

After staying in 4 hotels over the last 7 nights, I figured a reprise of the “hotel” theme for my Vancouver Then and Now series would be in order. The original photos are from the City of Vancouver Archives’ online collection, and some of the new images are from Google Street Views.

    does anyone know where the Grandview Hotel is located in vancouverÉ I knew it was on Cordova street in 1929, but I don’t know what the numeric address would be today.
