Pedestrian ferry services

Granville Island Pedestrian Ferry Services: Image via Wikipedia

Granville Island is built on a small peninsula of land connected to the south shore of False Creek. Access to Granville Island from the south is by car, bus, bike, and foot as all traffic enters and exits through one road. From the north shore (the downtown Vancouver side) of False Creek, Granville Island can be reached by taking small colourful passenger ferries from a number of docks OR by travelling to the south entrance by the usual land transport methods.

We recommend that you spend some time reviewing these hotel options on Google Maps, to get a sense of the lay of the land, before booking your hotel. We’ve gleaned this information from a variety of sources, and so it is offered not with recommendation, and no guarantee of accuracy, but simply to expedite your search. There are likely some ‘bed and breakfast’ options nearby as well, if that is your taste. Let us know about any info that should be updated!

The only Hotel actually located on Granville Island is:
Granville Island Hotel
1253 Cartwright St.
604 683 7373
This is a small hotel, and in demand during August (wedding season), but may have a few rooms at Emily Carr University rate if you book early and mention this.
