    Rosewood Hotel Georgia
    Vancouver, British Columbia
    #1 in Best Hotels in British Columbia
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2021 reviewsTripAdvisor (2021)
    Free WiFi

    For travelers who put a premium on luxury, the Rosewood Hotel Georgia delivers. Recent visitors said the staff's attention to detail makes guests feel like royalty. And the 156 rooms and suites aren't too shabby either: Accommodations feature views of the hotel's inner courtyard or the Vancouver cityscape, flat-screen TVs, Nespresso coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are just as impressive with rainforest shower fixtures and heated floors. For extra pampering, treat yourself to a visit at Sense, A Rosewood Spa. When hunger sets in, the swanky Reflections: The Garden Terrace (open during the warmer months), serves cocktails and small plates. Meanwhile, Hawksworth Restaurant features a formal atmosphere and a menu with locally inspired cuisine. But when just drinks will do, kick back at the 1927 Lobby Lounge, which borrows its name from the building's original construction in 1927. You'll find this Rosewood outpost in downtown Vancouver at the corner of Howe and West Georgia streets (around the corner from the Vancouver Art Gallery).

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3500 reviewsTripAdvisor (3500)
    Free Breakfast

    While the Fairmont Pacific Rim features a long list of luxurious amenities, its downtown Vancouver location is what helps it stand apart from competitors. Set on the Coal Harbour waterfront, the hotel sits across the street from the Canada Place cruise ship terminal. Thanks to the hotel's location, recent guests say the views from the rooms and rooftop are spectacular. When you're not gazing out across the harbor, relax poolside in one of the private cabanas or by one of the cozy outdoor fire pits. For even more serenity, visitors recommend booking a treatment at the Willow Stream Spa. Continue the pampering at Botanist, which serves regionally sourced dishes. Craving a pick-me-up? Venture to giovane cafe + wine bar, which offers house-made pastries for breakfast and Italian cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Once you've refueled, retreat to your digs where you'll find a Stearns & Foster bed, an iPod docking station and an iPad2, which you can use to order room service and operate various controls in the guest room. Although this Fairmont's high-tech amenities are an added perk, according to recent visitors, it's the hotel's exceptional service that makes a stay here memorable.

    Sonora Resort

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 383 reviewsTripAdvisor (383)

    A getaway at this Relais & Chateâux property isn't cheap, but previous guests say the Sonora Resort offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The resort sits on Sonora Island, which is accessible from Vancouver (about 120 miles southeast) by seaplane or water taxi. This part of the Pacific archipelago is famous for its salmon, and Sonora provides everything avid anglers need, including boats, equipment and fishing guides (for a fee). The secluded locale also lends itself to a bevy of other outdoor activities like hiking and kayaking. The accommodations aren't too shabby either: Rooms are spread out across several lodges. Accommodations in the marine lodge extend over the water. For more views, indulge in a treatment at the oceanside Island Currents Spa or a meal at the on-site restaurant, the Tyvee Dining Room (remember: all meals and drinks are included in your nightly rate). Visitors say the service and locally sourced plates are sublime.
