Host Hotel: The Holiday Inn Downtown



Did you wait too long and now can’t find a hotel room for VFW? We’ve got some suggestions for you!

Summer is HERE, with heatwaves and amazing weather coursing across Vancouver, and excitement ramping up further every single day for Vancouver Fetish Weekend at the end of the month. We’re hearing from many people who are only now starting to look for places to stay and discovering we weren’t kidding when we said Vancouver is in high demand in summer. Our host hotel is SOLD OUT of our discount block, with regular rooms now going for well over $300/night, which is absolutely standard across Vancouver – IF you can even find a room! Many places are already booked out, with rooms being scarce and hard to find at all!

At this point we highly suggest trying AirBnB – rates can be very reasonable, with amazing places to stay in downtown Vancouver, close to all the action of VFW! Head to the website, see what you can find, and make sure to refine your search to the areas we suggest.

We highly suggest staying in one of the following areas listed below. They are all downtown with access to everything you will want. Everywhere else is an outlying suburb of the city! Refine your AirBnB search to these Vancouver neighbourhoods – and good luck!

– downtown Vancouver
– Gastown
– Coal Harbour
– Yaletown
– Chinatown
– West End
(NOT West Vancouver, that is a whole other outlying suburb!)



We are pleased to once again be working with the Holiday Inn downtown to offer a group booking and discounted rate for Vancouver Fetish Weekend attendees!

to book your hotel rooms, or view the hotel website.

* Note that you must enter the group code to get the discounted rate!

Group: Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2017
Group Code: VFW

Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Vancouver Downtown
1110 Howe St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 1R2
(604) 684-2151

Rooms from CDN$189/night (Approx US$144/night)

Group discount cutoff date is : June 27

Book your rooms early to hold them if you are even thinking of coming – you can always cancel right up to 24 hours beforehand and get 100% of your deposit refunded.

Please note that Vancouver is expensive for hotels in summer, with hotel rooms being hard to find at all as all hotels sell out across the city. Vancouver is in line with cities like London and New York when it comes to the demand for summer hotel rooms!

After the cutoff date, prices jump by over $125/night!

The discounted room rate is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We have only a limited block of rooms available at this discounted rate. Most other comparable hotels which aren’t either hostels or in a skid row area of town are $325+/night minimum at this time of year, if they aren’t 100% sold out (which is common!) so book your rooms soon!

Nearby Amenities

The Holiday Inn is in the heart of downtown’s business, shopping and entertainment districts. Walk to Robson Street shopping or Yaletown businesses and restaurants. The Stanley Park seawall and SkyTrain’s Canada Line with easy access to the airport are also close nearby, as is the Davie Street Village and West End (known to locals as the ‘gaybourhood’).

Distance to Fetish Weekend

While on downtime from the many events going on during Vancouver Fetish Weekend, the best of the city is at your doorstep. The Holiday Inn is only a short cab ride away from all venues for the weekend’s festivities!
