We are in the process of blocking a limited number of rooms for just $269 Cdn, that’s $200 US (2 x queen, non smoking) at the Holiday Inn & Suites on Old Lillooet Rd. in North Vancouver. It’s just a 6 min drive to the rinks, 15 by transit and just a 30 minute walk! There are also many hotels and apartments for rent in downtown Vancouver but August 3, 4, 5 is a long weekend in BC so rooms are filling up fast!
Games will be held at Canlan Ice Sports in the North Shore. The public bus takes you straight to the arena from downtown Vancouver and the West End Village. It is located off of Highway #1 at the north end of the Second Narrows Bridge. It has 3 NHL-sized ice surfaces, complimentary parking lot and unobstructed upper level licensed viewing area.
Wild Wing Restaurant overlooks all 3 ice surfaces and provides a comfortable environment to view games or to relax in afterwards with your teammates. Bag storage will be available at the rink.
