Four Seasons Vancouver’s ideal downtown location gives guests access to the cosmopolitan delights of the city, while its interior décor is inspired by the more natural elements of Vancouver. Rooms are adorned with soft palettes that include tea green, aqua, cream, and saffron. When it comes to dining, YEW Seafood is the ideal restaurant for foodies, serving western British Columbia classics, like Qualicum Bay scallops and Sidney Island venison. And for those who are looking for a little variety: YEW Bar delivers, with 300 selections of wine by the glass.
In the Area
Vancouver has something for everyone and the hotel’s ideal location makes exploring easy. Walk over to Gastown where the world’s only steam-powered clock keeps time in this popular shopping and dining area. For the athletic crew, the hotel provides a morning jog tour to catch those elusive morning views. Nearby, The Vancouver Art Gallery is housed in a unique heritage building. For adventure-seekers, Grouse Mountain has skiing and views of Vancouver from 3,700 feet. Finally, a trip to Vancouver wouldn’t be complete without visiting Granville Island, to enjoy great food and shopping. Try Public Market, for an assortment of homemade products made by Vancouver locals.
How to Get There
This property's level of service, amenities and consistent professionalism provided this traveller with a relaxed stay. I have returned on 3 separate trips since January of this year. The food in room and the YEW as well as its simple access to shopping downstairs allows travellers ease and comfort.
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is very centrally located in downtown Vancouver, walking distance to the waterfront, Gastown, Chinatown, lots of good shopping and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and the indoor/outdoor pool was a unique treat. We used the hot tub and pool all three nights we were there, as well as enjoyed the coffee, tea, fruit and water that were offered in the pool/gym area.
Prior to booking, the hotel staff were wonderful answering questions that we had and were so friendly overall. I am sad to hear that this space may not be a Four Seasons for much longer - if I have the chance to stay in Vancouver again, I would absolutely come back!
This hotel is in need of renovations and adjustments to customer service. Gym with older equipment, some with loose wires. Lobby pretty ok. Manager less than gracious when a complaint about the quality of the hotel room was raised (he just did not seem to care). This Four Seasons, is my opinion, is several levels lower than other Four Seasons hotels I have experienced.
Four Seasons Vancouver
A three-week trip and sadly, this was the only Four Seasons on the itinerary. High service standards and an excellent downtown Vancouver location make this hotel a nice stay. It’s walking distance to several restaurants (if you can catch them open on *gasp* a Monday - what is it with Vancouver and seemingly every kitchen closing early that day?). Attached to a mall with Holt Renfrew, and across the street from Nordstrom, shopping is also convenient.
Uber-efficient and ultra-friendly valets tend to your bags and car. A quick escalator ride up to reception, I found no wait at check-in and was greeted as a returning guest. As I arrived after 9pm, the Concierge called around to several restaurants to (finally) find me a table at Glowbal a few blocks away, where I experienced excellent service and a delightful pasta dish.
The bed was very comfortable, and was probably my favorite part of the room. They found a fabulous way to eschew with throw pillows, and instead placed two over-sized, square and wonderful freshly re-covered, soft Four Seasons-embroidered pillows on the bed. Closet was an adequate size. So was the desk, with two chairs.
Erno Laszlo Products in a kind of strong scent that reminded me of grass and the color green: shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bath gel. Also provided: shower cap, 3 cotton swabs, and 2 cotton rounds (I loved that they were not covered in wasteful plastic). Plenty of fluffy white towels and washcloths. And a rarity for hotels: a normal full-sized hair dryer with a cord long enough to blow-out long hair - simply *amazing*.
Stylistically, I cannot tell if this hotel wants to be modern, or if it wants to be classic, as it awkwardly straddles both. Maybe that’s a difficult challenge with old layouts in an otherwise non-remarkable building. But service-wise, it’s still Four Seasons, it’s super clean, and I would certainly stay again.
I have always enjoyed the 4 Seasons to stay in Vancouver. I stay there for my leisure and work trips as much as I can. When its a family trip my boys love being at the indoor/ outdoor pool. Even I enjoy the pool even if it raining out
