Georgian Revival. Toronto-based interior design firm Munge Leung blended a modern, sophisticated look with the historical style of the 156-room hotel. They preserved Art Deco details including Italian marble flooring, the fireplace and elevators with original brass dials. The Rosewood currently has the largest private collection of Canadian art in Canada, curated by Vancouver-based Farmboy Fine Arts.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms, in a palette of ivory, chocolate and powder-blue, have sleek Deco-inspired furnishings, such as pearlized leather loungers and quilted headboards. Well-styled accessories include a vintage-look brass clock, mercury glass bottles and a chevron throw. Spa-style marble and dark wood bathrooms feature a deep soaking tub, a luxury shower and bamboo-and-lemongrass-scented Ohne bath amenities. Thoughtful extras include Nespresso machines and fully stocked bars.
The hotel has a huge local following thanks to chef David Hawksworth, who prepares stunningly fresh, inventive fare (think hamachi sashimi with passion fruit, jalapeño, coconut and white soy, and roasted halibut with wild mushrooms and bottarga). There’s also the super-swish rooftop restaurant and bar, Reflections, and the business-friendly 1927 Lobby Lounge. Or you can linger over pastries and coffee at Bel Café. Other on-site offerings include a spa with cult-favorite Intraceuticals facials, a 52-foot indoor saltwater lap pool and a business center.
In the Area
Since the Rosewood is located so centrally, walking is easy. Culture vultures will want to check out the Vancouver Art Gallery, right across the street, and the Pacific Centre shops are also just a stone’s throw away. Hit the Diamond Restaurant and Cocktail Bar for pulled pork tacos, yucca fries and great drinks; for an upscale mix of French and Pacific Northwest, slide into L’Abattoir for milk-braised pork shoulder and black kale. Over on Robson Street, Vancouver’s shopping district, sample the hyperlocal fare (pork cracklings, bison tongue ravioli, beet and cress salad with black pepper praline) at Forage. And, of course, no food lover’s trip to Vancouver is complete without a trip to the Granville Island Public Market.
How to Get There
This was our second stay in two years. Up for a quick weekend to relax and take in a hockey game. We love this hotel. The rooms are spacious and great restaurant and lobby bar. We especially liked the basement bar Prohibition. Expensive but delicious and creative cocktails. We walked to Stanley Park from the hotel. Rogers Arena is a 10 minute walk as well.
We will definitely stay here again, the staff is helpful and courteous.
My daughter and I stayed here for a couple nights, in town for an event and some shopping. Choose this hotel based on location, it being an Expedia VIP, and what I hoped it would be, which it came very close
Friendly professional staff, all the extras you would expect from a top hotel,
The only slight issues would be, as a VIP Expedia hotel. No upgrade was given or mentioned that none were available, if that was the case, a note in our room with a pear and apple welcoming us as Expedia VIP was there, and I did receive an email a few days prior saying I could get 20% off spa services. But it’s a small spa and nothing available
I also had a delivery to the hotel and when I asked about it they seemed to not have received it, but later found it was at another desk area, which they apologized for.
All in all a fantastic hotel, Just pointing out little things, that could have made it even better
I would recommend staying here and would myself stay again!
A wonderful stay. Quiet inner garden room on a high floor. Very good service and extremely comfortable bed! Good location close to three sky train stations. Good gym and pool. I would recommend for anyone wanting a nice central stay.
Yes, its an iconic old landmark and they offer good service but not superb. It is a good, solid hotel, with staff that do care for your needs and many amenities available. The coffee shop downstairs is terrific. Hawkesworth is another story, not great. Anyway, fairly pricey place but it offers a good night's sleep and good staff.
It's just the noise from the nightclub in the room we had on the 5th floor facing that courtyard. Stoppedat 11PM. The bathroom was sumptuously-appointed! The bed was very comfortable and the accoutrements in the room were personalized and thoughtful - tiny perfect cookies to go with the in-room espresso machine, TWG teas! And much more besides. Not cloying or obsequious, just very very professional service care and provisions. Highly-recommended overall.
