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
Great hotel. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Great location. Quick walk to the Seawall. We had views of the water and mountains through two different sides of our room. All employees we encountered we very friendly.
I’ve stayed at this hotel multiple times and the service and quality of the rooms is always excellent. The gym is also perfect. The location is downtown which makes it great for business trips. The staff are friendly and very helpful. One piece of feedback is that the internet quality has deteriorated in the last year. It would be helpful if they could look into this as it has been consistently slower than it used to be over the last year.
We absolutely loved this hotel and would stay again and again! Everything was perfect from check-in, to comfort of the room, the staff, the gym, and all the personal services they offered. Our king size bedroom was more than ample and the bed and pillows were so comfy. They asked us the type of pillow we’d like!!!! Everything worked perfectly. Excellent shower, wi-fi and service. We arrived via a crew ship at 9am and they checked our baggage and called us by 10:30 to tell us our room was ready. Housekeeping could not have been better or more prompt. The location was perfect! Walkable to the sea wall, Stanley Park, all shopping and so much more. I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else, that’s how amazing the Loden was. We didn’t even make it to their restaurant which seemed to be an in spot.
Everything was first-class. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The hotel is wonderful and location is really good. A truly great experience. A very good way to end our trip. Will definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at the Loden Hotel very much and would like to highlight the exceptionally friendly staff, especially Adrien Litargne, Director of Guest Operations. We also loved the suite we had with very nice interior and high quality furniture. The service offered was great as well - we liked the fresh flowers and the evening service including water and chocolates. Coal Harbour and Canada Place are within short walking distance. The hotel also offers a complementary drop-off service that we used. The hotel's slogan "Central. Quiet. Beautiful." fits to the hotel very nicely based on our experience. We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Vancouver.
