Had psoted this over in West Coast Departures, and it was suggested to post over here for the Vancouver locals:

Three ladies in our 50's, plus size but no real mobility issues (wouldn't want to attempt a 3-mile hike pulling luggage ); is it OK to walk from Canada Place to the Auberge on a Sunday morning after debarking HAL? Is it really hilly? I sure would hate to have to get a cab for such a short distance.

I'm not a local, but we walk all over Vancouver whenever we are there. If you look on Google maps, it looks like the hotel is about 300 yards from the cruise ship terminal. If I recall, there is a slight incline, but nothing major.

Answered on your original thread which I saw first. Don't know any local posters who don't read both this and West Coast board so you'll just end up with two threads to track now depending which we see first - personally I'd ask mods to merge them for simplicity (into WC board, since technically this isn't a port-of-call but a terminus port for you).

Auberge is a great location for the cruise terminal and shuttle buses to Grouse/Capilano.

It's a 3 block luggage drag. I would get the room.
