Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver

Downtown Vancouver's urban escape
Surrounded by city center office towers, Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver settles rather anonymously into the downtown cityscape. Much of urban Vancouver has grown up around this 28-story tower since it was constructed back in 1976, and with its side street entrance behind the busy Pacific Centre mall, it's easy to pass right by the property. Once inside, though, this elegant Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel makes its presence known.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• A block from the Vancouver Art Gallery and a 10-minute stroll from the Vancouver Convention Centre, the hotel's street-level entry leads to a bustling lower lobby that's worth a pause to check out the changing installations by local artists.

• One of the best features of Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver is its secluded fourth-floor pool and Club 4 fitness facility with a stone deck ensconced in a lush garden just outside.

• If you're traveling with the family, ask about the hotel's Kids in the City program, offered during the December holidays, spring break and throughout the summer, with games, crafts and other activities to entertain the younger set.

• Both the Yew Restaurant and Bar are popular with downtown business people, local couples, and visitors, particularly for midday confabs and after-work cocktails.

• The staff of this Vancouver hotel are incredibly experienced with one of the longest average tenures in the Four Seasons chain. You can expect your needs to be met at every turn.
Things to Know
• You won’t find a full spa here, but RedCedar Boutique Massage Suite will take care of your massage needs or choose to get a rubdown in the privacy of your room.

• And if you want some help with primping, head to the lobby’s Blo Blow Dry Bar for a quick blowout.

• Kids in the Kitchen, takes youngsters behind the scenes with the hotel's chefs, and, yes, cookies are involved.
The Rooms
• The 372 guest rooms at the Vancouver hotel are spacious, with standard units ranging from 329 to 550 square feet.

• Whichever room type you choose, opt for accommodations on the 20th floor or higher for views above the surrounding buildings and glimpses of the North Shore mountains.

• In the spacious guest rooms, down pillows stack against the cream-toned headboards, and puffy duvets top the king (or double-double) beds.

• Standard high-tech amenities include flat-screen TVs, DVD/CD players, iPod docks and complimentary Wi-Fi. Housekeeping freshens the rooms twice daily.
The Restaurants
• The Northwest-style Yew, with high ceilings, wood finishes and a stone fireplace dividing the lounge area from the dining room, emphasizes seafood on its seasonally changing menu.

• As Canada’s first 100 percent Ocean Wise luxury hotel, Four Seasons Vancouver only serves sustainable seafood in all its food service operations.

• While the menu does change seasonally, you can always expect local fare at Yew. Favorites include BC specialties like Qualicum Bay scallops and Sidney Island venison.

• Named for a tree indigenous to British Columbia, the chic interior of Yew Bar reflects the Vancouver area’s natural surroundings with lots of natural light bouncing off the lustrous wood and rock elements.
