Welcome to Vancouver! Here are some pictures and videos of place within walking distance of the hotel.
The hotel is across from Esther Short Park, which will host its first Farmer's Market of the season on April 9th! Vancouver - and the Hilton - are just across the river from Portland, Oregon. From the Hilton it's only a few minutes to walk under the bridge and over the the Columbia River Renaissance Trail. Walking along the waterfront is a wonderful way to get some exercise while enjoying the view. See also and this. Some waterfront-walk-along-the-river interviews to convince you to come.
