Expert Review

Hong Kong-based Shangri-La’s first North American property delivers on the brand’s reputation for understated elegance and unassuming service. Located in the heart of downtown, near the Vancouver Art Gallery and the designer boutiques along Georgia Street, the hotel’s 119 rooms occupy the first fifteen floors of a new 61-story building – currently the tallest in the city. (Private residences fill up the higher floors, while a massive Urban Fair gourmet grocery shares space on the ground level.) Rooms range from 450-square-foot standard options to the 1,395-square-foot Orchid Suites; all boast B&B Italia furniture, a palette of warm chocolate, gold and wood tones, free local calls and Internet access, Nespresso coffee machines, and 42” flat-screen TVs with – a cool touch – DVR  pause-and-record capabilities. A smaller LCD television is also installed in the bathroom, along with a deep-soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Some rooms tout small balconies as well. Downstairs at MARKET by Jean-Georges, the menu plays like a greatest hits of the three-star Michelin chef’s fine-dining repertoire, with a particular emphasis on local ingredients like fresh seafood and regional wines. The expansive CHI Spa offers the brand’s signature Tibetan-inspired treatments as well as a number of organic services using the local, seaweed-based Seaflora line.
