Vancouver is consistently ranked one of the most livable cities in North America, and we agree it’s one of the most welcoming. Whether you’re seeking an outdoorsy getaway to explore parks and beaches or want to explore a city of fine dining and culture, Rosewood Hotel Georgia offers you a fantastic home base. Here are other things you should know about the hotel:
1. Use the concierges. The outstanding concierges at Rosewood Hotel Georgia truly know their stuff, from recommending great restaurants at both the high-end level and local hangouts, as well as shopping expeditions and local attractions. Patient and willing to go the extra mile, they’ll listen to ensure they completely understand what you want and will offer thoughtful suggestions, even setting you up with the courtesy house Bentley if it’s available (or providing you with the most scenic walking route if it’s not).
2. Check out the art collection. The Vancouver Art Gallery is located directly across the street from the hotel, but you’ll find an amazing art collection right inside the hotel. Featuring works by contemporary Canadian artists like David Robinson, Alan Wood and Jack Shadbolt, you’ll find color and beauty at every turn.
3. You’re in the ideal location. Just one block from bustling Robson Street, the city’s prime shopping destination, mere minutes from Gastown, a short walk to gorgeous Stanley Park and a very quick cab ride (or leisurely stroll) to Granville Island, the hotel is a great jumping-off point for exploring the entire city.
4. It’s surprisingly kid-friendly. Chic boutique hotels aren’t necessarily known for being the best venue to bring along the kids, but Rosewood Hotel Georgia is different. The kids' room service menu, for example, even offers babies a range of local, seasonal and organic fruit and vegetable purées, served warm and with an infant-friendly bowl and spoon. You can also easily request items like en suite wireless baby monitors, kid-sized bath robes, baby skincare products and in-room bottle warmers.
5. There’s a fragrance butler. This is one of the quirkier amenities we’ve come across in our travels, but we’ve got to admit it’s pretty genius. Realizing that guests can’t bring full-sized bottles of perfumes with them if traveling and carrying on their luggage, the hotel curated a selection of perfumes for guests to use. Simply call the operator and within minutes, a butler will arrive at your door with a tray of assorted fragrances for you to spritz on (alternatively, on your way out, swing by the reception desk where the perfumes are kept on display).
