In Vancouver’s vibrant city centre, the striking Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver stands 30 storeys high, commanding spectacular views over the city and its majestic mountain peaks. Just a few minutes from areas such as Granville Island Market, Stanley Park and Robson Street, the hotel is in the perfect position for exploring the surrounding natural beauty and adventure activities of Vancouver.
The luxury guest rooms are decorated with woody greens, warm ambers, bright blues and soothing creams, reflecting the area's versatile natural environment. All rooms have elegant marble bathrooms and picture windows which frame city scenes and mountains, the hotel's garden, or Vancouver Harbour. The suites have the addition of dining and seating areas, while the Prime Minister Suite offers the largest space, occupying the hotel's top two storeys.
With such inviting views, it is not long before guests head into the energetic city to explore its myriad of wonders. Options include a leisurely cycle ride around Stanley Park, visits to the cobbled streets of the Gas Town and one of North America's largest China Towns, or shopping sprees at the artsy shops on Granville Island. For those seeking more daring adventures, visitors can climb Grouse Mountain, known as 'The Peak of Vancouver', or walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which stretches above the rushing Capilano River.
The hotel itself offers a range of activities, catering for both adults and children and during the summer, Kids in the City arranges daily activities including face painting and cookery classes. The swimming pool provides fun for all the family.
Dining in the YEW Seafood restaurant is a treat, with the seasonal menu based on the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy specialities inspired by British Columbia, including Qualicum Bay scallops and Sidney Island venison. The cosy wood panelled restaurant with its floor-to-ceiling sandstone fireplace is certainly welcoming, but if guests rather an exclusive dining option, all day in-room meals are available.
Why we love it
The Four Seasons Hotel is the perfect choice for a luxury family break in Vancouver - parents can indulge in spa treatments in the RedCedar suite, while children are entertained by the arts and crafts activities and Xbox games at the hotel's seasonal Playzone.
