Parking near or at Executive Hotel Le Soleil Vancouver

Please recommend a parking lot near the hotel.

The hotel has valet parking with in/out privileges, according to its website. Does it mean I cannot self park in the hotel?
If I valet park my car, should I give tip every time?

Is there street parking around the hotel? Is it safe?

Safe is relative when you park in downtown vancouver. Not that I want to scare you, but cars do get broken into occasionally whether parked on the street or garage. Always make sure that your car is locked and windows rolled up before you leave. Of course that wouldn't deter anyone from smashing the windows to get its contents, so never leave anything that you can't afford to lose. Take all your belongings with you when you retire for the day.
I personally wouldn't leave the car on the street overnight and opt for covered parking instead. there's plenty of public garages and each have different rates as you will see on these websites:

The hotel's valet service can get really expensive. Aside from the daily rate, you also have to tip, although some do not.

Thanks for the sites.

It seems, the hotel valet parking (at $37/day with in/out privileges) will come out cheaper if I'll be getting in and out of the parking lot several times a day. But how much is the usual tip for the valet?

At least $2, but really it depends what you can afford.
