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 really enjoyed our stay at Loden. The service is top notch! The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly. The variety of amenities offered is amazing! We loved having access to their bikes for a ride around Stanley Park as well as the taxi cab which we used to get us to dinner. They offer coffee and tea in the lobby in the mornings and the room was also equipped with a Nespresso machine as well. Got to mention the Molton Brown toiletries and there were also robes and slippers in the rooms too! The room was very spacious and comfortable. The location is excellent and close walking distance to most things in downtown. The staff really do go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need/want. Our first day, we were delivered a hand written note and some Perrier and snacks. In the evenings a carafe of water was always left bedside along with some chocolates. We really appreciated all the little touches that made our stay so wonderful! Would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
When ever I needed help there was friendly, competent staff, that immediately took care of my needs. The rooms are immaculate, clean and tasteful. A very central location, that is easily accessible through public transport made the stay very convenient.
I cannot overstate how much I love this hotel! The room and view were amazing! The staff was so friendly and helpful! I absolutely love the complimentary taxi service, we used that so much during our stay! Even though the taxi only drops you off, it’s easy to find a regular taxi in the area. My sister and brother in law loved the bikes they got to use from the hotel. It’s a great location with an amazing staff. If you are staying in downtown Vancouver, I highly recommend this hotel! We will definitely be back!
The room was immaculate and perfect for my needs. I had a corner suite, which provided plenty of space, light and great views. The staff was courteous and helpful. I will definitely stay here again! Great value for a VERY nice hotel!
I spent a week here. It is a superb, very well run hotel. It is boutique in style, with very good rooms, which are very quiet. My room was very spacious, with lots of room for work and travel gear for a week. Its showers are very good. Breakfast was very good. The service throughout the hotel was superb at all levels. It was fun and customer focused. It is a 15 minute walk to Vancouver's convention centre and/or to Vancouver downtown. It is a 2 block walk to Vancouver's metro. I would gladly stay here again.
