Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Hotel, Vancouver, B.C.

Marriot Hotel Located in downtown Vancouver, in the heart of the business district, the prestigious Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle is an architectural marvel, a gleaming tower standing proudly above the city's vibrant skyline. Only a short block from the city's waterfront, it is also a few blocks from the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre, cruise ship terminals, Robson Street shopping and Stanley Park.

There are three types of guest rooms available at the special conference rates, each with either a king bed or two double beds. Rates are per room, not per guest. Attendees will receive these special room rates:

  • City View - CA$ 210 + 17% tax
  • Harbour/Mountain View room - CA$ 240 + 17% tax
  • Concierge room - CA $260 + 17% tax

Visit the Universal Currency Converter for current conversion rates for your currency.

These guestroom rates are applicable during the conference, as well as three days before and three days after the conference dates.

Please Note: In the summer Vancouver hotels often are full, so to avoid disappointment, IWIPS attendees should reserve their rooms early. The block of rooms reserved for IWIPS 2004 expires on 23 June 2004.
