Our favourite rooms
Every room is sleekly Asian in style and loaded with mod cons, with beautiful marble bathrooms. Opt for a room facing northeast, on the West Georgia Street side for the best views of Downtown Vancouver, including the harbour, Stanley Park, the mountains and the water. Executive Kings and Suites are on higher floors, with more sweeping views. Request a room with a balcony to best enjoy them.
The black-tiled heated outdoor pool is surrounded by sunloungers and a welcome city hideaway. There is also a Jacuzzi for chilly days.
Bring hiking gear, skiwear, rafting garb or whatever else you'll need to experience the rugged splendour of British Columbia.
Rooms 704, 706 and 709 are handicap-accessible with roll-in showers.
Small dogs and cats are welcome; the hotel charges a CA$50 fee per booking for bringing furry friends along. See more pet-friendly hotels in Vancouver.
Welcome. The hotel can provide cribs and rollaway beds for no cost, though it's best to reserve in advance. Children get milk and cookies upon arrival, and the hotel has good ideas for activities. Babysitting is available for $18 an hour.
