This boutique hotel lives up to its name: The lobby, guest rooms, meeting spaces, restaurants, even the pool's tiles, are all decorated in different shades of blue. Not to mention the blue window panels that cover the property's facade. Aside from the distinct design theme, recent guests also loved hotel's central location in downtown Vancouver (Yaletown, Chinatown and Gastown are all less than a mile away). Along with a great address, the hotel has its finger on the pulse of conservation, employing a variety of green practices, including in-room energy management systems, low flush toilets and a ban on plastic water bottles. But that doesn't mean comfort takes a backseat: Standard guest rooms feature Nespresso coffee makers, Samsung smart TVs, minifridges and more. A business center and gym are among the other amenities available at Hotel Blu, and there are three on-site restaurants, including Black Rice, an Izakaza, or Japanese drinking establishment for which the hotel has a private entrance.
