Auberge has a prime spot in the Terminal City Tower, which translates to fab views of the city, the mountains or the harbor depending on what room you’re in. It also means that guests can use the building’s mind-bogglingly good fitness center, which includes three squash courts and a 25-meter indoor pool. Tiny hotel gyms—we’re so over you. The vibe here is well-heeled tourist or business traveler (plus cruise voyagers, as the hotel is just yards from the cruise ship terminal), so there are plenty of extras, like those gourmet chocolates that appear in the room every day. But the real selling point is the location, which boasts proximity to both the water and the city’s most exciting offerings.
In the Area
So much of Vancouver is walking distance from this hotel that you’ll be able to avoid taxis and public transportation for much if not all of your visit, if you’re so inclined. Gastown, with its historic buildings and trendy shops, is a ten-minute walk – we suggest stopping at Revolver, coffee purveyors par excellence, for a caffeine injection before strolling around admiring the architecture and ducking into trendy boutiques like Oak + Fort, which sells chic mens- and womenswear, or lunching at The Flying Pig, whose New Canadian menu is heavy on local seafood and includes a short list of clever cocktails. Closer to the hotel, book dinner at Hapa Izakaya, just two minutes away and serving some of the best Japanese food in town (Bon Appétit called it one of the top five izakayas In North America) or head to Rogue Wet Bar, which does creative comfort food, like cauliflower and squash tacos, along with local craft beers by the pitcher.
How to Get There
Great location in downtown Vancouver. The hotel is quiet, it does not have a restaurant of bar but there are lots of places near this location. The rooms are laid out as suites with a living room bar area and a separate bedroom. Great for work travel.
We decided to stay at the Auberge hotel due to its location to the cruise terminal, literally one block away so very convenient for dragging your cases off a cruise ship. The hotel was very centrally located and ideal for all the shops and attractions you want to visit in Vancouver.
Upon check in we are upgraded to a suite which was greatly welcomed (thanks very much to the front desk staff for offering this). The room was perfect, house keeping and hotel staff were all very friendly.
The hotel doesn’t have a bar or restaurant but you can make use of the next door pub which also offers room service to the hotel. Hotel guest get access to the leisure facilities which are provided by the on site private leisure club. A brilliant pool, hot tub, other facilities all over looking the waterfront. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to family and friends.
I chose this hotel near the port and the station to go on a cruise. The room was a corner room and looked very good, and I was able to see the scenery of the bank bar office and the harbor. It was about 10 minutes on foot from this hotel to Cruise Port, so it was a distance where you could walk with a large suitcase.
The room seemed to be renovated and it was very nice with a modern atmosphere! The next time I went to Vancouver, I liked it so much that I wanted to stay at this hotel again.
