Live like a local in this sophisticated 60-room boutique hotel. On the corner of Richards and Robson streets, sleep in a residential tower that rises up amid Vancouver’s most coveted addresses. The lobby puts on a show of magnificence with marble floors, velvet walls and gold furnishings, while the rooms rock a residential sophistication with fireplaces, kitchenettes and big marble bathrooms. Some rooms overlook the heated, outdoor pool and garden terrace. Crackerjack concierges take pride in guiding guests around the city, and they’ll map out the best bike routes for the hotel’s fleet of bikes (just be sure to reserve yours well in advance).
In the Area
Bordering downtown’s eastern edge, Vancouver’s Chinatown was one of North America’s original havens of Chinese culture, and it remains a vibrant original. The place to start your exploration is The Keefer Bar for its handcrafted apothecary-style “prescriptions” with house-made tinctures, bitters, syrups and teas. The small plates at Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie, whose menu melds the tastes of Taiwan, Shanghai and Sichuan province, makes it one of the busiest spots around. It’s worth the wait for the Shao Bing, sesame flatbread with cumin lamb sirloin, pickled red onion, green pepper and salted chilies. In Gastown, Vancouver’s hottest neighborhood, stroll the cobblestone streets past restored heritage buildings and hip hangouts to Alibi Room, where the cool crowd sidles up for 50-plus locally brewed pours. For dinner, House Guest is a casual supper club that feels like a friendly dinner party — only with infinitely better food. Gourmet faves include mac ‘n’ cheese croquettes, confit chicken wings and scallops in a beer jus.
How to Get There
My overnight stay with my daughter was fantastic, your very attentive to every detail, and kindness is so welcoming and professional. The beds and pillows are perfect after along day exploring the town. The location is the best for anyone visiting from out of town. Thank you, we will be back!
This was an excellent city hotel, clean, comfortable with very friendly staff. Ideally located for restaurants and shopping in the downtown area of Vancouver.
We took advantage of the use of their bikes to explore the city visiting Stanley park and Granville island.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would use the hotel again
The conceirge team is fabulous at this hotel. They made dinner reservations, booked tours and offered general travel timing experitise. We wanted to take the ferry to Victoria and their assistance was very helpful. The fronk desk was very accommdating as well. We arrived before our rooms were ready and they offered to escort us to the 5th floor lounge and provided a complimentary cooffee and/or tea. Most times when we returned from our day of exploring we were greeted byt name.
The room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spacious and had lovely toiletries. On top of everything...the location is convenient to all the downtown attractions without being noisy. I'd highly recommend L'Hermitage.
