A new business and entertainment district is earning kudos in this outpost in British Columbia, Canada. Parq Vancouver, which opened last fall next to BC Place, is anchored by two luxury hotels, eight restaurants and lounges, an expansive park and downtown's only casino.

The posh JW Marriott Parq Vancouver has 329 guest rooms, while its hip sister, the Douglas, offers 188. The hotels share 60,000 square feet of meeting space, including the city's largest hotel ballroom.

Nestled between the Gastown and Yaletown districts, Parq is a 10-minute drive from the Vancouver Convention Center and an easy walk to Stanley Park, shopping and more.

Explore the area on two wheels with Cycle City Tours, which leads memorable group excursions for all fitness levels.
