Baby, it’s cold outside. Escape the chill – without having to hop on a plane – and hole up inside the Douglas Hotel. Part of the autograph collection of Marriot, this luxury and lifestyle facility is the definition of ‘West Coast chic’ and features countless amenities, including immediate access to Parq Vancouver, the city’s newest newest entertainment destination.
5 Cozy Decor
Named after the Douglas fir tree, the Douglas features 188 guest rooms including 10 suites and three penthouse suites with private rooftops! The lobby is a display of local, PNW inspired artwork and the funky mirrored elevators are easily the most instagrammed elevators in Vancouver. Dark, richer woods accent the rooms and amenities are locally sourced (like the gin, antioxidizing Douglas fir tea and Aesop soaps.)
4 Convenient Layout
Where else in Vancouver can you have access to a world-class, Vegas-style casino, social event spaces, luxury workout facilities, 24-hour service food, a spa featuring an aqua lounge and outdoor zen garden – the list goes on and on and on.
3 Variety of Restaurants
Burgers, salads, acai bowls, dim sum, steak, and seafood – you name it and you’ll find it all within steps from your room. Start your day with guilt-free pumpkin pancakes at Honey Salt, enjoy afternoon tea at 1886, feast on the best our waters have to offer at The Victor, grab asian-fusion eats to-go at Market East and cheer on your favourite sports team over nachos and wings at BC Kitchen.
2 Slumber-Party Perfect Beds
At the top of our hotel-rating checklist? Beds. The beds at the Douglas are 100% approved for jumping on – we mean, sleeping in. So slip on your onesie, pour yourself a glass of your poison of choosing, sit back, and chill. We guarantee you’ll wake up feeling like a new person.
1 The Staff
As we like to say, “the people make the place.” This is especially true with the people who work at the Douglas and throughout Parq – all 2000 of them. Attentive, knowledgeable and entertaining, they’ll feel like friends in no time.
