True to its promise to “redefine the downtown boutique”, this hotel shows some serious attention to detail. Each of the 96 rooms practices precision styling to strike the perfect balance between modern and sleek but with lashings of playfulness – think Hello Kitty Pez dispensers instead of chocolates on the pillow. The stylish setting doesn’t end with the rooms, wander down to the lobby and find yourself in Vancouver’s hottest nightspot, the OPUS Bar. Expect to rub shoulders with the who’s who of Vancouver whilst sipping on one of their many inventive cocktails.
Set in the middle of the fashionable district of Yaletown, this neighbourhood boasts countless restaurants, bars and shops and is known for its vibrant nightlife. A mere 35-minute drive from Vancouver’s International Airport makes this hotel the perfect place to take a sneak peek into one of Canada’s most bustling city scenes.
Choose from five uniquely themed rooms ranging from the modern and minimalist to the daring and dramatic. No stone has been left unturned, from refrigerated towels in the summer to the heated bathroom floors in winter; this is the sort of subtle decadence OPUS hotel prides itself on. Each room has been specifically crafted to indulge the personalities and tastes of different guests whilst unifying the common elements of style and comfort. For added luxury choose a room with a fireplace or private balcony.
Why we like it
The ultra-sleek, modern design coupled with the area’s notorious nightlife and endless restaurant options is, of course, a winning combination. But add the complimentary bike rentals, and of course, the five different lifestyle concierges educating you on all things Vancouver – and this hotel really is love at first sight.
