I agonized over this, did my research, didn't know where to stay, couldn't make up my mind... and then our friend from the R&D /Marriot gave us a code to use, and a gift certificate! WELL! That kind of cut down the choices for us! Then I had to decide between the Marriott Pinacle and the Renaissance Harbour View. ... tough choice, but I kinda got seduced by the guarantee of the Harbor view, an 8am check in, and the price! So, we'll be staying one block from Canada Place for $29/nite!!! Yahoo! Now, I just have to pick our excursions.. hey, did I tell you I'm going to Alaska???
