Excellent Weekend at the Pinnacle!We checked in on Friday to our lovely, large clean room. We were upgraded from our mountain view room to waterfront room so our visit was really special. We needed to be in that location for the weekend so the location was special for us.
Birthday StayMy husband and I like to come for a night away on our birthdays. The Pinnacle is close to home, but it is still a great get away. We always appreciate finding chocolate covered strawberries in the mini fridge, a great treat.

Home away from homeThe Pinnacle at the Pier is always my first choice when working in Vancouver. Nestled in hip LOLO and a quick Seabus ride to downtown, the Pinnacle offers a budget friendly refuge away from home.. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The fitness facility is great – workout to a view of the harbour before swimming laps and soaking in the hot tub.
