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
If you can survive three fire alarms in one night, accompanied with just one elevator working, and your room is on the 12th floor, then have at it. I won’t be back. Room was nicely decorated, I think. Spent about as much time in the lobby as we did in the room.
The location is super close to Canada place . Only a few blocks . No view of anything from the room . The rooms clean but dated. The staff are great . It’s part of a private club so theirs limited access to certain things within the building .
We stayed here for two nights before a cruise. This hotel is in a great location. It's good to know in advance that this hotel is primarily luxury apartments. It also hosts a longstanding private club. It's very clean and the staff is quite attentive.
