Hotels in Vancouver with good transit access

We're off for a late-booked trip to Vancouver in August and need to find a place to stay. Most hotels are booked in the West End/Downtown/Yaletown area. What hotels would you recommend that are moderately ($100-200) priced with easy transit access to tourist attractions? We'd like to use public transit if possible, but can rent a car if public transit is infeasible. We will have at least one member of our party who can't walk longish distances, and a toddler to deal with as well, so frequent bus changes may be a challenge. We were looking at the Holiday Inn Express Burnaby, is this a sane choice?

Traveling to Vancouver. Pre-paid mobile data plans?

I'll be in Vancouver and the surrounding area next week. What's the best way for me to get data on my cellphone? Something like a prepaid mobile SIM card tied to a data plan. Just relying on wifi isn't an option as half of the time I won't be in the city. [more inside]

Where to buy a stylish but affordable trenchcoat in Vancouver BC

I'm going to be up in Vancouver this weekend and want to shop for a new spring coat. Something trenchcoat style but not in black or beige - cool colors or prints/patterns would be better. Size 12 or M/L, between $100 and $200. The style constraints are that it should not be teenagery but not dowdy either - I like classic cuts but trendy colors and patterns. I already plan to check out The Bay.

Where to find mulled wine in Vancouver, BC Dec 28, 29 ?

The only place the Internet indicates we can find this is the Christmas Market, which has ended for the season. I've called a few places but haven't found anyone who currently has this beverage on their list. Will be there the 28th - 30th, and if anyone could point us at a place where we could find a glass of Gluhwein, mulled wine, Glogg (insert appropriate diacriticals where needed,) would be most appreciative.

Where can I buy a good, pre-made earthquake kit in Vancouver?

What was your experience getting off the pill after many years on it?

A lot of people experience intense moods and emotions while their body transitions off the hormones. After that, some people notice that their personality has changed one way or the other for good. I've real some studies that show hormonal birth control also has an effect on the kind of person you are attracted to when you are on it. Does this mean you might not be as attracted to the person you're already with? What was your experience?
