A glittering tower in Vancouver
131 Rooms / 16 Suites
Vancouver’s skyline is punctuated by its second-tallest building, the new Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver. Designed by famed Canadian architect Arthur Erickson, the 63-story twisting skyscraper gives its first 21 floors to Trump, the luxury brand’s second Canadian property (the first is in Toronto). Guest rooms range from 343 to 1,500 square feet and each has a slightly different layout, thanks to the innovative building design.
Situated in the city’s Golden Mile of high-end boutiques, Trump Vancouver combines glamour and understated design to create a space that exudes quiet opulence. A muted color scheme and extensive meeting facilities bring a business-friendly air to the hotel, but this is softened by local West Coast touches, such as meeting spaces named after Vancouver neighborhoods, light woods in the rooms and locally sourced drinks in the minibars.
Trump Vancouver also brings a couple of firsts to the city with Drai’s, the Vegas-inspired poolside lounge, and Mott 32, the sister restaurant to the renowned Hong Kong original.
Our Inspector’s Highlights
• The architecture of Arthur Erickson’s innovative triangular design is something to behold — it twists up to 45 degrees from the bottom to the top of the skyscraper.
• Hot spot Drai’s is a place where you can lounge by day and dance all night surrounded by palm trees, lush greens and, of course, stellar views of the city.
• A pedicure at The Spa by Ivanka Trump involves resting on one of the thrones that look out over Vancouver.
• The Trump Attache concierge/butler service is helpful in many ways, from arranging personal shopping, to customizing your guest room to scheduling the use of the hotel’s chauffeured Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II car service.
