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
If you're looking for excellent service, luxurious & comfortable rooms, and a romantic setting look no further. This hotel was worth every penny. The staff was excellent from arrival to departure. The bed was so comfortable and the room was lovely! Did I mention they also have soaking tubs in the bathrooms? Love love love this place. We will be back.
From the time you pull up the driveway, greeted by the valet (no self park here), and hand over your keys it was such a pleasure staying here. The hotel itself is so old-world opulent and straight up gorgeous. Check-in was welcoming, quick and thorough explaining the hours for the restaurants etc. I found out at check-in that the Prohibition Bar wasnt open that particular day so that was a little sad- I've heard it's spectacular. However, we had the chance to cocktail hour/dine at the Reflections Patio where we were treated to some comlimentary caramel popcorn and welcomed with some hot apple cider. The food was positively outstanding(my understanding is it constantly changes but we had a pizza that had thinky sliced apple slices, trufffle oil, prosciutto and some very good nachos)and vibe was like a lively winter garden - drink choices are beyond extensive (multiple pages). We left the hotel later to have dinner elsewhere (Kobe Japanese Steakhouse) and we absolutely regretted it- I could not even stand it, after a few bites took the food to go and gave it to a homeless person. Hawskworth at brunch was beyond excellent as well. At turndown, the little sugar cookies were actually very good and we had a chance to meet & chat with the housekeeping staff that did our turndown in the lobby washrooms- which are also very big & beautiful.
As soon as you arrive the service goes beyond anything we could imagine . Staff are smiling helpful and very caring . The rooms are spacious and clean . Beds etc cozy and warm . The food is the freshest we ever had and prepared so good .
very well located for touring and cruise ships and s

best restaurant in town is onsite and the reflections bar has a great vibe and mexican themed cocktails
Continues to be as good as ever, with impeccable service and great cuisine. An excellent example of a restaurant that has maintained standards . Definitely not inexpensive but no-surprises as to why. I congratulate them for continuing a tradition of excellence.
