For a few weeks in early 2010, Vancouver will become the most well-known city in the world as it takes a turn in the spotlight of the world stage by hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics. The city is one of the crown jewels not just of Canada but of North America, but going during the Olympics might be too expensive or crowded for some travelers looking for discount hotel packages.

The good news is that fall is perhaps the most beautiful season in Vancouver, featuring a temperate climate and gorgeous sights including stunning foliage. And as has happened when other cities have hosted major events such as the Olympics, improvements to the city are happening months in advance. This includes the building of new hotels or hotel expansions, meaning there are plenty of hotel suite deal possibilities out there for the taking.
