Located near leafy Stanley Park and the shops of Robson Street in the downtown neighborhood of Coal Harbour, the Loden brought new style and high design to cosmopolitan Vancouver when it opened in 2008. Custom-designed interiors mix creature comforts with a stylish edge, so expect sleek furnishings, bold colors and all the modern extras. The welcoming lobby sets this tone with velveteen sofas, a fireplace and striped marble.
Bed and Bath
Upstairs, guestrooms capture the views of the harbor and mountains through floor-to-ceiling windows — views reflected in the huge mirrors covering the walls behind kingsize beds in most rooms. In Signature Rooms, sliding walls divide (or connect) living rooms and bathrooms, while in the 800-square-foot one-bedroom suites, pocket doors section off the bedroom from the living area. The vibe here is certainly sexy; Agent Provocateur once took over a few floors for a lingerie show.
Vancouverites flock to the Loden’s Tableu Bar Bistro, which is fronted by a lively bar. Room service also provides ample sustenance, and favorite nearby eateries include Italian Kitchen, Coast and Chambar. The large fitness center is open 24 hours a day — and it too is enclosed by the signature floor-to-ceiling windows. There is also a one-room spa that has the unique bonus of an infrared sauna. For travelers with dogs, the hotel will provide beds, bowls, freshly baked biscuits, dogsitting and appointments at a local dog spa. Vancouver naturally draws people to the great outdoors, and the Loden provides cruiser bikes for exploring the city in style.
In the Area
A short drive from the Loden, Grouse Mountain has skiing until early April, plus eco-walks, Theater in the Sky, Refuge for Endangered Wildlife and Skyride year-round. This new Chinatown brasserie is the place for small plates with big flavor such as shao bing, crunchy flatbread with braised pork butt, Asian pear, pickled onion and mustard greens.

How to Get There
Very good hotel with excellent service. Room was comfortable and quiet. Only downside was that air condition was not able to keep room temperature comfortable during afternoon hours when sun was directly shining to our corner room.
We loved our stay at The Loden, it was such a great sized hotel, the staff were amazing, nothing was too difficult. The location is great and the attached restaurant terrace was a plus! We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends visiting Vancouver.
The Loden Hotel is small and quiet with a personal touch. Located within a few minutes walk of the waterfront, our room had views of the waterfront and the mountains.Our corner room , while not large, was very well- equipped with a spacious bathroom with marble floors and a separate stall shower, large closets and storage space and a writing desk. The staff is attentive and friendly. An excellent choice!
We stayed at the Loden (Park View room) at the beginning of July 2018 and found it to be excellent. Then room was spacious and modern with both a shower and a bath. The staff were really helpful - a free taxi service to town is provided. The location is convenient for the centre of Vancouver and a short walk from the (lovely) park and harbour front. Would definitely stay here again.
A truly well thought out boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown with easy access to everything. The room was spacious and had some really nice features that elevated my time during the stay. Great spot for either business or pleasure.
