Rosewood Hotel Georgia
What it is
A 1927 celebrity magnet with 156 sumptuous rooms and an Instagrammy saltwater lap pool.
What it isn't
A boring business hotel. Staffers have a fount of activity recommendations at-the-ready, including spotting totem poles at Stanley Park and exploring the VanDusen Botanical Garden.
What we think
Elvis. The Beatles. Queen Elizabeth II. John Wayne. They’ve got almost nothing in common—except adoring fans and Rosewood Hotel Georgia, where each one of them has slept. These days, recently revamped guest rooms are fitted with tailored lines in the form of tufted headboards, piped wingback chairs and graphic sheer draperies—all a little more Queen Elizabeth II than John Wayne, but luxurious enough to comfort any road-weary guest. We love the thoughtful touches most hotels forget, including heated floors in the marble-lined bathroom, Bose docking stations, Rivolta Carmignani Italian bed linens and plush oversized towels. Another major perk? There are six restaurants and bars on the premises, a godsend on sloshy winter nights. Come summer, don’t miss nabbing at least one meal at Reflections: The Garden Terrace, a courtyard tapas place with outdoor heaters and blankets for curling up with a negroni amid lush foliage.
You're here because
You’re bringing the family, and the Rose Buds for Children program means you’ll have every need met, whether you seek wireless baby monitors, a child-sized velour robe or in-room bottle warmers.
Exhausted from a day flocking hither and thither like Vancouver’s may seagulls, you decide to treat yourself to some true solace in Sense, A Rosewood Spa. But when you walk in, you feel a tear slip from your eye—it’s absolutely magic, and every bit as calm as that onsen you once steeped in in Japan. After much deliberation, you opt to be massaged with broom flower and honey body oil—a French import that leaves you feeling fresh as the morning dew.
