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. The cool Canadian designer has 2 Vancouver stores that feature uncommon designs for men and women.

How to Get There
I loved the attention to detail like the staff calling me by name and all the thoughtful touches in the room - a glass of ice water upon check-in, the luxurious bathroom. The fitness facility is one of the best I've ever seen, even in much larger hotels. THis place is small but mighty.
Thank you for making my stay at the Loden so wonderful. Everything was perfection; from the amazingly friendly staff, to the best rooms and best services. I felt like a princess during my entire stay.
Super comfortable room, helpful staff who gave us very personalised treatment & great recommendations for dining & activities. Also loved the extra touches like free bikes, free London cab service around town & welcome macaroons that were among the best I've ever tasted.
Had a lovely stay at the Loden. Will definitely come back ! Loved the letters on the desk and the small attentions given! The food was just amazing, very nice French cuisine selection.
Good location, very helpful staff, although we were told we had been upgraded but the room was small and the bed seemed to be a queen bed and we had booked a king room. Also quite noisy with the construction next door and you could hear everything going on in the hall way and the light from the hall way streamed under the door creating light into your room while trying to sleep. The restaurant was excellent the food was amazing and the staff so helpful and friendly.
