I want to tell you about our experience at one of Vancouver’s luxury boutique hotels: Rosewood Hotel Georgia. This 5 Star hotel is full of amenities and has a world class charm that would be hard to match. With three restaurants (one on the rooftop), a lounge, concierge, free Wi-Fi, a spa, pool and gym, you don’t need to leave the hotel to be pampered.
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted and assisted by the friendliest staff ever! The lobby area has a world class charm with dark wood walls and marble floors. Behind the lobby front desk I noticed a collection of all types of perfumes. When I asked what the perfumes were for, they said it was for guest to use in case they forget to bring theirs. Every time they went out, my daughters went to the front desk and tested a different perfume.
Another thing that immediately caught my attention was a painting in the lobby called “Internity – Artist Patrick Hughes”. It was a scene of the canals of Venice. The painting provides an amazing 3D illusion that seems to change and follow me as I moved around the room. It’s a form of art called Reverspective.
After check-in we were escorted to our Deluxe Guest Room. Our room had a king size bed with a desk and chair on one side. The bathroom was very large with big tub in the center, a rain shower to one side and the toilet on the opposite wall behind frosted glass. It had two completely separated vanities with sinks on opposite sides, which made me very happy. The hotel provided us with bathrobes and slippers. In the evening the bathroom lit up with “night” lights. The view outside our room overlooked the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Our kids stayed in a connecting Deluxe Double Room. Our housekeeper showed up immediately after we arrived with an ice bucket and fresh baked cookies for everyone. My son’s first experience with a rain shower was at the Hotel Georgia and he has been asking ever since about getting a rain shower for home.
The hotel has a variety of restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Bel Cafe is located right outside the hotel lobby area and is an ideal place to grab a quick breakfast bite, or a morning coffee. They serve a sumptuous lunch with a selection of sandwiches and salads to choose from. We enjoyed the croissants for breakfast in the morning before heading out for the day. I had a delicious eggplant sandwich for lunch.
Reflections is an outdoor rooftop patio restaurant on 4th floor next to the spa open to the public and guests. They offers an excellent menu with healthy options for lunch and dinner. The views of the city are amazing since you’re surrounded by high rises. It’s a great spot to hang out (people watch), and have a drink. It becomes quite a scene in the evening. Make sure to dress up in the evening, everyone does.
It’s a stylish restaurant located in the lobby floor of the Georgia Hotel, Hawksworth is a lively place with a warm ambience, nice bar area, and most importantly a terrific menu. To dine at Hawksworth restaurant on a regular basis, would be prohibitive unless one is blessed by an ample expense account, but for special occasions it is ideal.
1927 Lobby Lounge
The 1927 Lobby Lounge, a contemporary tribute to the hotel’s grand opening year, is a cozy and trendy venue with retro cocktails and casual fare. It was one of my favorite places to relax and work on my travel blog while savoring the ambience and enjoying a drink. Many locals find it ideal for having work related meetings, having a relaxing cocktail before dinner or enjoying an evening nightcap.
After eating in all their delicious restaurants. You can burn off some calories by working out in their fitness center or swim some laps in their lap pool. The family enjoyed the use of all of their facilities and even had a massage at Sense Spa.
Finally, on one of the days that the family decided to venture off on bikes at Stanley Park, I decided to go down to the cruise terminal and walk around. The hotel concierge arranged for their driver to drop me off in the hotels Bentley. That was a treat!
Our family really enjoyed our five day stay at Hotel Georgia, a totally impeccable 5 Star experience. If we happen to travel through Vancouver again, we wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
