The 5 Most Luxurious Hotels in Vancouver

Deanna deBara | July 25, 2018

There are times when you're feeling extra conscious about your travel budget—and in those circumstances, what you're looking for in a hotel is less "living in the lap of luxury" and more "how can I get the most bang for my buck."

But sometimes, budget is the last thing on your mind—and instead of staying at a sensible, budget-conscious property, you want to put the pedal to the medal and stay at the most over-the-top, lavish hotel you can find. If that feeling rings a bell, then this list is for you.

While Vancouver might not be known as luxury destination (like a New York or London), it certainly has it's fair share of high-end properties that offer the perfect backdrop for a good old-fashioned luxury escape.

Here are our picks for the best luxury hotel experiences in Vancouver:


Pan Pacific Vancouver

Why it made the list

This waterfront property has a number of luxury features that set it apart from other hotels in the city, like the rooftop pool, which offers 360-degree views of the water, mountains, and city skyline, or the on-site spa, Spa Utopia, which has a whopping 26 rooms for guests to unwind and relax with a treatment.

Shangri-La Hotel

Why it made the list

If you're looking for a Zen experience of luxury, you'll definitely want to check out the Shangri-La Hotel. The Vancouver location is this high-end chain's first property in North America, and it doesn't disappoint. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer incredible views of the city (the Shangri-La Hotel is housed in the tallest building in Vancouver) while the Asian-inspired details (particularly in the spa) create a Zen-like atmosphere that's not only luxurious, but incredibly relaxing.

Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver

Why it made the list

There's a reason the Four Seasons brand is synonymous with luxury—they do luxury extremely well. The Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver has everything you could want from a luxury hotel experience—an on-site spa, luxe furnishings in the guestrooms, and an incredible staff waiting in the wings to make sure you get everything you need out of your stay (and then some).
