I just arrived in Vancouver (BC – Canada). After failure to find a Seattle-Vancouver ferry accepting same-day reservation, I checked trains and actually www.amtrak.com offers a bus shuttle to Vancouver for just 25 USD. Which I took. Then in Vancouver I just had to take the monorail train to the waterfront (2.50 Canadian Dollars) to get at the Pan Pacific Hotel. A pretty luxurious hotel yes, but for the convention of t10 we had an unbeatable discount group price.
