Default Transportation to Grouse Mt?

I am staying at the Sheraton Wall Centre and have reservations at the Observatory on Grouse Mt. Anyone have reviews of either? Does anyone have any insights on the best transportation from the hotel to the mt.? Thanks for your help!

You can take the SeaBus to North Van and then a public bus to both the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mtn. I used an all-day pass, so it was very cheap. You can get a "discount" on admission if you book through the TourInfo place across from Canada Place (and other places, too?). Most posters here recommend you go on a reasonably clear day to really enjoy it--I imagine that would be even more important for the Observatory!

Grateful Guy is right - very easy to use the public bus system to get to Grouse Mtn and an $8. all day bus pass is very cheap transit.

However if you want you can use a taxi I would guess the fare would run you about $30.

Oops, didn't realize "Observatory" is also the name of a restaurant. I thought I remembered seeing a small observatory dome on the property, but that may have been some kind of senior moment!
Bon Appetit.
