Opus Hotel Vancouver

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.

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.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Opus Hotel Vancouver is located in the city’s Yaletown neighborhood, a trendy downtown district of rehabbed warehouses, glass-windowed condo towers, eclectic boutiques, and an assortment of restaurants and bars.
  • The Opus has partnered with four local artists — Tiko Kerr, Mark Mizgala, Alana Rothstein, and Taizo Yamamoto —whose original works now hang on the guest room walls. Bright colors are everywhere, from the fuchsia and purple lobby bar to the vividly hued guest rooms that pop with bright oranges, lime greens, or raspberry pinks.
  • From the hotel, it’s just two blocks to the False Creek waterfront, where you can sip a glass of wine in one of the outdoor cafés or stroll along the seawall path.
Things to Know
  • The hotel provides bicycles for guests, too, if you prefer to cycle the seawall, which continues all the way to Stanley Park, Vancouver’s huge rainforest green space.
  • Attractions such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, as well as many downtown office buildings, are within walking distance or a short cab ride, as is Davie Village, the center of Vancouver’s large gay community.
  • The Canada Line branch of Vancouver’s SkyTrain subway system, which makes several downtown stops and connects the city center with the airport, has a station — Yaletown/Roundhouse — directly across the street from the Opus Hotel.
The Rooms
  • Bright and lively, the guest rooms at the Opus Hotel Vancouver almost explode with color, from the vividly painted walls to the multihued upholstery.
  • You can select a room in one of five palettes, which range from deep lavender to bright orange to lime green.
  • Most rooms have a queen or king bed (a few offer two doubles), topped with white Egyptian cotton sheets and down duvets, as well as a colorful bolster and padded headboard.
  • The in-room technology includes a flat-screen TV, iPod clock radio, cordless phones, and complimentary wired and wireless Internet service, as well as an iPad that you can use during your stay, both in and out of the hotel.
  • Each room also features an original work by one of four local artists, as well as a large desk, a brightly upholstered love seat, and a stack of design and lifestyle magazines.
The Restaurants
  • La Pentola della Quercia at the Opus Hotel Vancouver serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.
  • Morning meals begin with the standards — pastries, cereals, eggs — but you can also choose Italian-inspired creations such as the Kaiserschmarrn, a pillowy Northern Italian pancake, or grilled sardines on toast.
  • Later in the day, the menu stays in Northern Italy, with dishes such as vitello tonnato (veal with tuna sauce), handmade pastas, or prosciutto-wrapped rabbit loin.
  • You can get drinks and light bites in the Opus Bar, in the hotel lobby. You can also walk from the lobby directly into the neighboring Café Artigiano, a branch of a local coffee shop mini-chain.
