“A 20th century hotel overlooking English Bay, Vancouver. The comfortable rooms range from single suites to self catering apartments, with every modern convenience. Right on the water, this spot is perfect for swimming or skating and biking the seawall. City escape with a splash of seaside!”

GUIDE TO VANCOUVER

This ivy-coloured building was built in 1912. Directly across the street from the city's most beautiful beach, English Bay. Rooms have great views over the harbour. Service is impeccable, the hotel has been family-owned since and most of the staff have been there for at least 10 years.
