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. Join a plugged-in walking tour led by a chef from the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, or visit Vancouver’s famous microbrewery, Granville Island Brewery.
How to Get There
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at the Loden. You guys were absolutely amazing, especially the ladies at the front desk!
For the reader who is considering this hotel, trust me, this hotel is worthwhile. The place is extremely clean, and fresh and the staff are so helpful. I would definitely recommend!
Tx guys - i hope to see again!
Great hotel, great location, great service! This hotel is always very welcoming. It is in a perfect location, close to the waterfront and a couple blocks away from Robson St. Great coffee in the rooms and lobby. The bath products in all the rooms are cruelty free and smell amazing! All in all great place to stay :)
The Loden was the perfect setting for a weekend get away for my husband and me. The staff were so helpful, and it felt like they did everything they could to make our stay memorable. Loved the welcome gift of chocolate and wine, and we used the complimentary bikes every day. Oh, and daily breakfast was delicious! The Loden is a luxury hotel without pretension or the hub bub of others we've been to. Thanks, Loden team, for a wonderful stay in Vancouver! This will be be my go-to hotel when we return to Vancouver.
Exceptional stay from start to finish. Every aspect of the stay was outstanding from the valet/bellman to front desk to management to housekeeping to food/beverage. Great location! Use of bikes and the hotel cabbie is a nice touch.
We have stayed here twice now and have decided to make it our regular hotel when we visit Vancouver.
This luxury hotel has the friendliest, most helpful staff. Every time we stay we are greeted with a hand-written letter welcoming us to our room. The rooms are very luxurious with large king-sized beds and marble bathrooms. Molton Brown products are standard in the bathrooms. There are only a few rooms on each floor giving it a very exclusive feel. There is valet car parking for a fee. The lobby also contains a bar/restaurant with a great ambiance and excellent food/drinks. This is one of the best hotels in Canada in my opinion.
