Luxurious Places To Stay in Vancouver
This month the world's eyes turn to Vancouver, British Columbia as the Winter Olympic games begin. Vancouver, being such a cosmopolitan city, offers the finest in the boutique hotel experience. We'll be looking at two very special boutique hotels that certainly set the pace.
The Wedgewood Hotel and Spa is the perfect combination of that luxury "get away from it all feeling" combining with all the convenience necessary for the business traveler. The lobby is beautifully appointed with overstuffed furniture, several antique pieces, original works of art, and an abundance of floral arrangements. The staff pays attention to every detail. They are well acquainted with the city, and will offer every assistance possible to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The hotel is small, and intimate in size with only 83 rooms, but huge on the amenities they offer. Each room has its own walk-out balcony, a large limestone shower, and a separate soaking tub. The rooms are also provided with plush bathrobes, towels, and slippers. If your aim is pleasure, begin to de-stress with the complimentary steam room, arrange a massage, or other spa service.
The Wedgewood is located in the heart of fashionable Robson Square providing Vancouver's best in restaurants and shopping, but the Wedgewood itself provides an excellent choice for dining in the Bacchus. The Bacchus cuisine is modern french, and offers a wide variety menu. For the best in luxury comfort, this is definitely one of the finest Vancouver has to offer.
Another premier hotel is The Sutton Place. It is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The Sutton Place sets itself apart from other chain hotels with their unique European flavor, and hospitality. As you enter the lobby, the opulence of your surroundings is more than impressive. You are surrounded by elegance. The hotel has everything for the single business traveler, to the couple looking for a romantic get-away, to large groups in need of banquet facilities.
The Vida Spa is a favorite among guests staying at the Sutton Place. They have a wide menu of offerings. You'll find everything from a simple body wrap to their signature Ayurvedic treatments. Their services begin with a treatment as short as a 30 minute massage priced at only $60.00, to a fun girls' night out packages. One of the more popular packages recently is the bride's package. You set the pace, and the package!
The Sutton Place excels in their meeting and banquet facilities. They offer sixteen different meeting facilities to accommodate any size group or event. The hotel provides a staff that is ready to answer any question you may have, as well as being fluent in eleven different languages. Their attention to detail is a real plus for any meeting or event planner.
Dining is also a five star experience at the Sutton. The Fleuri Restaurant offers an incredible variety of seafood, and the Gerard Lounge offers a light bistro menu. Not only will you be pleased with the cuisine offerings, but they provide an option for "private dining"with spectacular views of the city to impress that special someone. ThIs is one of those special places where your hotel is as much the destination as the city itself.
