3 Chic Vancouver Hotels

With architecturally innovative bayfront mid-rises, woodsy pine forests, an array of parks, and snow-capped peak backgrounds, Vancouver is one of North America’s most beautiful cities. The Canadian metropolis is located in British Columbia, where it is often deemed one of the world’s most livable locales. Below are three hotels we love👇 🇨🇦

1️⃣ One of the city’s most revered buildings, the Exchange Hotel Vancouver (@exchangehotelvancouver), is a towering glass-paneled structure incorporated into the old 1929-constructed, neo-gothic-and-brick Vancouver Stock Exchange building, which won the 2017 American Architecture Prize for Heritage Architecture. The hotel pays homage to its monetary-oriented history with swaths of gray marble and brush-brass pomp. Upscale and debonair, the hotel also hosts Hydro Estiatorio, a chic Mediterranean restaurant with a first floor café and second-floor mezze bar, where design splendors like a deftly carved hanging chandelier of a swarming school of fish, and 14-foot Pantheon-inspired columns that connect terrazzo stone floors with high ceilings, evoke a contemporary-but-Aegean-inspired ambiance.

2️⃣ Wedgewood Hotel (@wedgewoodhotel) in Vancouver — right next to Robson Square — evinces a regal environment that is redolent of ritzy European hotels that you would see in some of the old country’s cities. The lobby exudes grandeur with its vintage furniture, dimmed wood accents, and dazzling chandelier. Guestrooms are populated by old-time antiques, pastel artworks, patterned curtains, and brown-toned furnishings. Downstairs, velvet armchairs, grand pianos, and mahogany wood decorate resident Bacchus Lounge, which offers French cuisine — perfect for couples, as it has won the title as Vancouver’s most romantic restaurant for several years.

3️⃣ Dressed from head to toe in Virginia Creeper — an ivy-like plant that changes color with the season — the Sylvia Hotel (@thesylviahotel) is located in Vancouver’s English Bay neighborhood, near Stanley Park. When first built in 1913 as an apartment building, it was the tallest tower in the city — today, that’s not the case. The hotel is known for its old-fashioned flair and great service.
