Overview

Boutique digs on Robson Street, steps from the best shopping in British Columbia

The Lowdown

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.

Treated like royalty!
SusanVT63

We were treated so well by all the staff. When they found out this was my birthday trip our room was upgraded and included the delicious breakfast buffet. The fitness room was very nice and we enjoyed our travels around the city on the free bicycles! We had a wonderful time and hope to return to L'Hermitage.

Great hotel, updated our room suite, all the staff provided outstanding service. Good breakfast with a variety of options, nice turn down service in evening. Location is extremely convenient, easy walk to many areas.

a week in Vancouver
John S

We were fortunate enough to spend a week in Vancouver and were treated to both the exceptional service of the L'Hermitage Hotel staff, but also the most unusual confluence of a week in November with sunny days and no rain. Who could ask for more?
Pretty sure we met every member of the staff and to a one, we were treated as you would be if at a Ritz (we've had that experience as well, so it's not a comparison of jest).
We will return.
