A bright, modern Vancouver boutique
“Banish the beige” could well be the motto of the Opus Hotel Vancouver, a 96-room boutique hotel set amid the cafés, restaurants, and boutiques in Vancouver’s trendy Yaletown district. From the vibrant magentas and deep purples in the lobby to the brilliant oranges and lime greens in the guest rooms, the Opus Hotel Vancouver practically blazes with vivid colors. While the white-and-granite bathrooms appear more sedate, they’re just as playful as the rest of the décor, with windows that face either into the bedroom or directly out to the street. But don’t fret if you’re feeling modest — you can simply close the blinds.
The Opus Hotel Vancouver also distinguishes itself with its up-to-the-minute technology, which includes iPads in every room and mobile phones (in the higher-priced room categories) that you can use both in and out of the hotel during your stay. A complimentary car service will shuttle you around town, or if you prefer to channel Vancouver’s active lifestyle, you can take a spin on one of the hotel’s mountain bikes. The lobby-level restaurant, Le Pentola della Quercia, is one of the city’s best Italian dining rooms.
