A Vancouver highrise with a prime location
Located on the downtown waterfront behind the iconic white sails of the Canada Place complex, the deluxe Pan Pacific Vancouver has a prime location for both business and leisure travelers — and for anyone who appreciates the city’s prime waterfront views. Many of the 503 guest rooms, as well as the restaurants, lounge, terrace, and heated saltwater pool, look across the harbor to the North Shore Mountains and all the way to Stanley Park. Even the rooms that don’t face the water have attractive skyline vistas.
The Vancouver Convention Centre’s east building is part of Canada Place, making the 23-storey hotel, which was built in 1986, handy for conventioneers. The Pan Pacific also sits directly above the city’s main cruise ship terminal, so it’s popular with ocean-bound travelers; you can take an elevator directly between the cruise terminal and the hotel lobby. Outfitted with maple furnishings and white linens trimmed with nautical navy-blue piping, the guest rooms play up the cruise-ship setting. For even more spectacular views, book a room on the top-level Pacific Club floor, where guests can call on a private concierge and enjoy an exclusive lounge with complimentary breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres.
