Vancouver, BC, Canada, is located just 140 miles (225 kilometres) north of Seattle, across the US -Canada border. By air, it is a short hop with most major airlines offering connecting flights. Prefer to drive? The Seattle to Vancouver trip on Interstate 5 will take you approximately 3-hours by car or bus. There is also a train which runs regularly between Seattle and Vancouver.
We have reserved a number of rooms at the Fairmont Waterfront. Located on the city’s harbourfront, this luxury hotel offers world-class hospitality and a convenient location from which to explore the heart of Vancouver.
The Signature Harbour View rooms we have reserved offer excellent views of the North Shore Mountains, Coal Harbor or Stanley Park. These rooms can be booked for $449 CAD per night. Due to a large conference being held in the city during this time, hotel space is limited so we kindly suggest you book early.

Vancouver, BC, Canada, is a city worth seeing and a great excuse to extend your INTA 2018 experience. We don’t want to be overly effusive in our description (after all, we have the pleasure of living and working here), so, instead, we’ll let The New York Times sing the city’s praises: “Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.”
The Oyen Wiggs’ reception at the peak of Grouse Mountain is the perfect opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of Vancouver while contemplating which part you plan to visit next.
Cosmopolitan and diverse, Vancouver, BC, Canada, has something to excite any traveler. Historic Gastown offers a plethora of culinary delights, while Stanley Park, one of the world’s largest urban green spaces, offers tranquil forests, beaches, and a six-mile seawall that is perfect for an afternoon bike ride.
Tourism Vancouver has compiled a helpful list of their 10 Must See Attractions. Beyond these highlights, there are endless hidden treasures to discover and a world-class restaurant scene that will delight your inner foodie.
Meanwhile, at Grouse Mountain, the grizzlies Grinder and Coola are awake after 153 days of hibernation. They’re hungry and ready to play and to explore their alpine habitat. The pair has been together at Grouse Mountain for 17-years, “since coming to the wildlife refuge in 2001 as orphans after being rescued during separate incidents in Bella Coola and Invermere“. Our reception at Grouse Mountain is the perfect opportunity to meet two of Vancouver’s biggest and furriest residents.

We hope to see you on Thursday, May 24th, for what is sure to be an enjoyable evening!
