    Rosewood Hotel Georgia
    Vancouver
    #1 in Best Hotels in British Columbia
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2035 reviewsTripAdvisor (2035)
    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).

    A landmark in its own right, the Fairmont Empress Hotel is easily recognized by its old-fashioned facade. The elegant building (a National Historic Site of Canada) draped in emerald green ivy opened its doors in 1908 and was designed by the same architect of the Parliament Buildings nearby. Plus, a $60 million renovation completed in 2017 has restored the hotel's interior to its former glory. Accommodations are outfitted with king- or queen-sized beds and offer views of the city, courtyard or the Inner Harbour, though recent guests said the bathrooms are on the smaller side. The Gold level luxury rooms and suites include continental breakfast, free evening hors d'oeuvres and cocktails and access to a private lounge. During your stay, step back in time and embrace the Victorian tradition of afternoon tea at the hotel. For other eats on-site, head to The Q at the Empress, which serves locally sourced Pacific Northwest cuisine. After your meal, indulge in a relaxing Willow Stream Spa treatment, also recently renovated. And if you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member and choose to stay here, you'll be able to earn frequent flier miles.

    The Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver beckons to travelers with its prime location and exceptional service. Situated in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the hotel is just a five-minute stroll south to the Vancouver Art Gallery, bustling Robson Street and a string of delicious restaurants. If you're content to dine at the hotel, you'll find the Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar – a seafood-focused eatery that is a hit with recent guests. Travelers weren't as pleased with the accommodations, citing worn furniture, but they do compliment the amenities, which include Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, flat-screen TVs and stellar city views. Should you crave additional amenities, such as a kitchenette or a furnished balcony, consider booking a suite in the La Grande Résidence section of the hotel. Wherever you choose to hang your hat, you'll have access to the indoor pool and spa.

    Thanks to its Gothic architecture and grand interior, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is known as the "Castle in the City." Visitors say this hotel's unique Old World charm sets it apart from some of the downtown area's trendier accommodations. Rooms are outfitted with flat-screen TVs and windows that open to inner courtyard or city views. When guests aren't admiring the view from their rooms, they can slip away to the Notch8 Restaurant & Bar in the hotel's lobby for fresh seafood and steak. After a memorable meal, take advantage of the property's ample amenities, including the 24-hour fitness center and expansive glass-enclosed indoor pool. For a little more rejuvenation, book a treatment at the Absolute Spa. Though a stay at this "castle" will cost you, you'll be eligible to earn frequent flier miles for future travels if you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member.

    Airport hotels aren't usually lauded for their luxury. But the Fairmont Vancouver Airport – the only hotel located directly within Vancouver International Airport (YVR) – ups the comfort for guests in transit. Situated above the U.S. departures terminal and only a short jaunt from baggage claim, the Fairmont offers soundproof floor-to-ceiling windows, minibars, Le Labo bath amenities and flat-screen TVs. When you're not sleeping off jet lag, travelers recommend kicking back at the Globe@YVR restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling windows put you right in front of the departing planes, while a Pacific Northwest menu will fill you up for the journey ahead. And if you're looking for a little pre- or post-vacation rejuvenation, recent visitors recommend a treatment at the Absolute Spa. If you're in the mood for a nightcap, travelers suggest Jetside Bar for its local wine selection. Though previous visitors warm that the hotel's comfort and convenience comes attached to a hefty price tag, you can earn airline miles and perks if you're a member of the Le Club AccorHotels program.
