The Availability of 2010 Accommodation on the North Shore is Now Growing!
According to a new report from Daniel staff reporter for the North Shore Outlook, there is a growing inventory for North Shore 2010 accommodation in both West Vancouver and North Vancouver rental markets for short-term stays. Visitors to the Vancouver Winter Games will now have a choice of three main categories of North Shore rental types and 2010 accommodation that will include multiple cruise ships, a new hotel as well as furnished 2010 rentals directly from home owners.

This increase in inventory for North Vancouver 2010 rentals and West Van Olympic accommodation is much needed as the latest statistics have shown a huge lack in rental housing during the short-term event. The Winter Olympics are just 6 months away and the North Vancouver waterfront area is looking to inject a huge supply of luxury 2010 accommodations to the Lower Lonsdale Pier development. With most of the downtown Vancouver hotels booked out by the IOC and VANOC, this leaves the majority of 2010 hotel suites in the Lower Lonsdale, North Vancouver area. Right now, approximately 80% of all the downtown 2010 hotel rooms are booked or held under an agreement between the Olympic officials and hotels themselves, so the new 105 room Lower Lonsdale Pier Hotel called the waterfront Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier will likely be a huge draw for visitors looking for luxury North Vancouver 2010 hotel suites during their stay.

In addition, there has already been confirmation that there is a 1119 room cruise ship docking on the North Shore for the duration of the Winter Olympic Games. Right now, the ‘locked off’ downtown Vancouver 2010 hotel suites can actually be released by the hotel come August 2009, but it is expected that most of the hotel rooms will be kept by VANOC and the IOC. As far as the Lonsdale Quay Hotel is almost fully reserved, and it is anticipated that very few hotel rooms will be released come August. However, with Pinnacle International’s new Lower Lonsdale Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier North Vancouver under construction and ready to be open in December 2009, this will inject a full 105 rooms to the general public for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic accommodation inventory. Currently, none of the 105 rooms at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier Lower Lonsdale are booked by VANOC and the IOC. The North Shore 2010 cruise ship docking here is the Norwegian Star which is three hundred metres in length and can accommodate more than 1000 passengers and visitors at any one time starting February 10, 2010. The Vancouver 2010 cruise ship accommodations will represent the largest ‘hotel’ in terms of number of rooms for the Olympic Games and will be operated by Newwest Travel and will be docked at Kinder Morgan pier. With on board amenities like restaurants, theatre, casino and much more, bookings for these 2010 cruise ship accommodations on the North Shore are heating up in both Canada and the United States. The European market for bookings has been much slower thus far. In addition, the City of North Vancouver is also contemplating docking a North Shore 2010 cruise ship at the Burrard Dry Dock Pier during the Winter Games, but that has not yet got the go ahead. The earlier agreement through the Deap Group for the Burrard Dry Dock 2010 cruise ship docking fell through at the last minute, but that may be revived sooner rather than later.

North Shore Olympic 2010 Accommodation Countdown
According to the North Shore News, both West Van and North Van residents and homeowners are gearing up and preparing to host the 2010 Games visitors. By Daniel, staff reporter in April 2009. North Vancouver could only be weeks away from finding out if two cruise ships will be docked at the city pier in Lower Lonsdale North Shore during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The cruise ships would mean additional 2010 Olympic accommodations to the already scarce supply facing the Greater Vancouver area as the Winter Olympic Games approach in February 2010. Right now, president of the Deap Group, Greg, confirmed that he is close to finalizing a deal with the City of North Vancouver to bring the Olympic 2010 cruise ships to the Lower Lonsdale Pier area for the Winter Games, which will be a breakthrough and welcome addition to accommodation seekers and international visitors looking for alternative furnished 2010 accommodations other than 2010 hotel rooms and suites that are fully booked and reserved for VANOC. All cruise ship based, Deap Group is looking to berth two 2010 Olympic cruise ships in the City of North Vancouver in addition to another 2010 cruise ship in New Westminster Quey. A hot button issue even when the Winter Olympic Games were awarded to Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver could also be amending their city bylaws to allow for short term Olympic 2010 West Vancouver accommodations, which it currently does not allow. The manager of the West Vancouver short term rentals permits, Liz, said that the current West Van bylaws don’t regulate bed and breakfast and short term Olympic 2010 accommodations up to 30 days. It will be another 4 to 6 weeks before her team can present changes to the West Vancouver bylaw to allow for West Van 2010 rental accommodations for short term accommodation seekers and international Olympic visitors in this city. As West Vancouver is one of the Venue Cities for the 2010 Olympics, it makes sense to allow for short term West Van 2010 furnished rentals and short term stays. In addition, the District of North Vancouver regulations and bylaws allow homeowners to rent their homes to a family, or host up to two boarders or lodgers for more than 28 days. However, North Vancouver bed and breakfast operators are required to have a business license from the District of North Van in order to operate at any time, including during the Olympic 2010 bed and breakfast offering. The bylaws are seen as a compromise in allowing for more rentable West Vancouver suites and North Vancouver rentals but still protecting current tenants.
