Whistler regular, Passported contributor and mom-of-two Cathy Fedoruk recently snuck in a stay at Vancouver's stylish Rosewood Hotel Georgia en route to her mountain retreat. She shares what to know (and love) about this Rosewood property, and why she'll be returning.
- Originally built in 1927 and renovated in 2011, this Colonial-revival hotel has 156 rooms and is walking distance to Stanley Park, Gastown and English Bay.
- Tired from a flight? You can eat in. The Georgia’s two restaurants including the award-winning Hawksworth, as well as two bars and a casual café.
- Rosewood pampering ranges from a Bentley house car to Rivola Carmignani linens, La Bottega bath amenities, Nespresso machines in all rooms and complimentary wifi for all.
- For value hunters, the superior room will fit a family of four, but you’ll be sharing two double beds.
- Spread out with more space in connecting rooms; the deluxe rooms connect to each other or to an executive suite.
- The quietest rooms overlook the inner courtyard.
- Nothing beats a splash in the 52-foot indoor saltwater pool.
- If you’re on a quick stopover but want to sneak in some culture, the hotel sits steps away from the Vancouver Art Gallery.
- Kids can spa with mom and dad thanks to children’s treatments in the Sense Spa.
- Views maybe obscured by buildings, so if a skyline view is important, request in advance.
- Not all rooms have bathtubs, so be sure to request one if traveling with an infant or small child.
- Although suites are large, they’ll only allow one bed to be added, meaning families of four or more need connecting rooms.
