Get ready, folks - Curbed Vancouver's first ever Hotels Week begins right now. We'll be diving into the best and the worst of the Vancouver hotel scene, sneaking a peek into the most coveted hotel lobbies, and finding what hotel rooms won't break the bank. We're kicking off Hotels Week with Hotel 18 - the answer to the question "Where should I stay in Vancouver?"
As always, the tipline is open for your hotel horror stories, hotel construction updates, or ridiculous amenities that we should know about. Please send your stories, tips, and photos, or you can leave a comment on the site.
This year, for the first time ever, there's also an Instagram contest worth $500 to sweeten the pot. Have an awesome hotel photo to share—perhaps one with spectacular interiors or architecture? The steps are as follows:
1. Follow @curbeddotcom on Instagram.
2. Instagram your hotel photo, and be sure to tag @curbeddotcom in the caption.
3. On Thurs., March 27, we'll re-gram our favorites (and publish them here on the site).
4. On Fri, March 28 at 1 p.m. PST, the photo with the most "likes" will be crowned as the winner, earning its photographer a $500 gift certificate to a hotel of their choice.
For those who have a not-so-beautiful experience at a hotel, we want to hear about those horror stories, too. Tweet using #hotelsweek—we'll be mining the hashtag for the best and brightest tales.
And with that, Hotels Week has officially commenced!
