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
We booked through American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts after seeing the high rating you got on Trip Advisor. We absolutely loved our 2 stays at the Loden. It didn't hurt that our complimentary room upgrade was to the penthouse! The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The food was fantastic (both breakfast and dinner). The bed was extremely comfortable. And the location was great. I'll be recommending the Loden to all of our friends.
I had a quick trip into Vancouver for business. The service at Loden was terrific and the rooms had excellent finishes. Nice touches throughout. The complimentary car service and the pillow menu were especially nice touches. I was impressed and will certainly stay there again.
Very friendly staff, restaurant food was amazing, relaxed atmosphere. The location is great, short walk to everything and my office. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. My stay was excellent....I will be returning!
Perfect location only minutes from the cruise port. They’ll even take you to the port in their London cab. Service is impeccable, but not at all stuffy. Every staff member was incredibly friendly and very helpful. Recommend without reservation.
First time trip to Canada and me and my friend met the most friendly staff. We stayed on double bed room near elevator but it’s not noisy.. Bathroom is luxurious and view of the city is beautiful. All staff are very helpful and Camille helped us with booking tours, seaplane and she made itinerary for 2 days so we followed her advice very helpful and kind young lady. Food at le tableau is good.. When we visit vancouver again I will go back to this hotel and it is my favourite. 5 stars!
