Located in the waterfront Canada Place complex, the sophisticated Pan Pacific has easy access to the city's convention center and the main cruise-ship terminal. Rooms are large and modern, with maple furnishings, Italian linens, and stunning ocean, mountain, or skyline views. High-end suites, some with private steam rooms, saunas, or baby-grand pianos, are popular with a star-studded list of royals, celebs, and well-heeled newsmakers. The 26-room Roman bath–themed Spa
Utopia and Salon is sumptuous; the health-and-fitness center is state-of-the-art; and the outdoor saltwater swimming pool offers panoramic views of Coal Harbour and Stanley Park.
