Planning a trip to Vancouver? When it comes to hotels, the following are as hip as it gets and truly one-of-a-kind, combining cool design, unique amenities, and exceptional service:
5 Fairmont Pacific Rim
1038 Canada Pl
Luxury has no limits at Fairmont Pacific Rim. Soothe your mind and body at award-winning Willow Stream Spa, enjoy sushi and live music 7 days a week in the lobby, or pop some bubbly in the champagne lounge inside Botanist, Vancouver’s hottest new #PNW inspired restaurant. Style is of the essence here, with each room incorporating elements of fashion and the arts.
Decor, and amenities aside, the beds are the real selling point. If you’ve yet to sleep in a Fairmont bed, it’s the next best thing to sleeping on a cloud. It’s so incredible, in fact, that you’ll never want to leave, and that’s okay because with all the features this hotel has to offer, you never have to.
Fun fact: you can purchase your own Fairmont bed online!
4 The Loden
1177 Melville St
If you like the idea of starting the day with a cup of coffee in your own private courtyard (in the company of Buddha) then the eco-chic Loden Hotel is calling. An urban oasis, The Loden is tucked away in the heart of the city, close to countless attractions.
The place to stay for the active-traveler, this boutique sanctuary is just minutes away from the world-famous Stanley Park where you can walk, run, rollerblade, or bike the seawall while taking in staggering views of the city. This hotel truly caters to your every health and fitness need, offering 24/7 access to their fitness studio, yoga mats, and complimentary cruiser bikes. This year, the hotel introduced privately guided and customized cycling tours!
Not only will YOU get pampered, but so will your fur baby! The Loden is 100% pet friendly and goes above and beyond to provide your pooch with a simply pawfect experience, with house-made dog biscuits, luxurious plush pet beds, and a dog-walking map of the city.
3 Rosewood Hotel Georgia
801 W Georgia St
Where the bold and beautiful stay and play, Rosewood Hotel Georgia’s appeal lies in its vintage-chic decor, prohibition vibes, and rich history. Beautiful modern and old-world furnishings adorn the hotel and add a sense of charm and comfort to spacious rooms.
The hotel’s pièce de résistance? A stunning, NYC-esque hidden rooftop, equipped with a full-functioning bar and kitchen. Within the hotel, you’ll find Hawksworth Restaurant voted one of Vancouver’s best restaurants specializing in locally sourced, contemporary Canadian cuisine and Prohibition, a suave, speakeasy cocktail bar.
Famous celebrities that have stayed at Hotel Georgia include Elvis Presley, Marlene Dietrich, and Nat King Cole. NBD.
2 The Burrard
1100 Burrard St
If you’re all about the retro vibes, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with The Burrard! An Instagrammer’s dream, this hotel first opened in 1956 and features pops of colour and contrasting whites throughout, making you feel as if you’re chilling in Palm Springs rather than smack dab in the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver.
Grab a latte at Elysian Coffee Roasters downstairs and then hop on a hotel cruiser (bikes all come equipped with baskets) and explore the city on two-wheels, in true local fashion! Post-cruise, grab a bite next-door at comfort food hot spot Burgoo! Must order: Grilled cheese sandwich and french onion soup!
1 Opus Hotel
