Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver
791 W. Georgia St., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 2T4, Canada See on Map
When you hear the name "Four Seasons," you think luxury—and the Vancouver outlet of this iconic chain certainly doesn't disappoint. This 30-story luxury property is centered on creating the best possible guest experience, from the lavish furnishings to the epic views to the incredible staff on hand to accommodate anything and everything you might need during your stay.
The rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver are plenty spacious and the floor-to-ceiling windows offer incredible views of the mountains and the harbour. The beds are among the most comfortable you'll ever sleep on and come outfitted with high-quality down pillows and duvets.
If you've got allergies, just let the front desk know—they'll send hypoallergenic pillows to your room to ensure you're comfortable during your stay.
The bathrooms are exactly what you'd expect at a luxury property like the Four Seasons, complete with marble features, plush robes, and high-end bath products courtesy of L’Occitane en Provence.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The one thing the bathrooms are lacking is a ton of counter space, so if you're the kind of person that travels with a lot of product, it's something you'll want to be aware of.
The lobby is open and spacious, but somehow manages to feel cozy at the same time (thanks to the nature paintings, comfy furnishings, and laid-back seating areas).
Headed for a fancy night out? Stop by Blo Blow Dry Bar in the lobby and get a blow out before you hit the town.
Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver is home to the city's only indoor/outdoor pool, located on the fourth floor. Follow your swim with a dip in the hot tub or a few relaxing minutes in the sauna.
Get a massage at RedCedar, the hotel's in-house spa (if you prefer, you can also get the treatment in your room).
The fitness center has everything you need to get a solid workout, including top-of-the-line cardio machines and plenty of free weights.
Stop by Yew Seafood and sample from their seasonal menu of fresh seafood dishes and raw bar items, including salmon carpaccio, freshly shucked oysters, octopus salad, and ceviche.
Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver is right in the heart of downtown, and the area is easy to navigate on foot. For public transport, it's just a 3-minute walk to Granville Station, where you can catch the SkyTrain to other areas of the city. If you do bring a car, valet parking is $49 per night.
To keep the luxury feeling going, head to Hy’s Vancouver (4-minute walk), a posh dining destination where you can enjoy some of the best steaks in the city in the wood-paneled dining room, which has a classic kind of glamour you won't find in newer establishments. If you want to enjoy your dinner with a view, head to Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio (20-minute walk), where you can sample from the restaurant's excellent raw bar on their waterfront patio.
If you're in the mood for a beer, head to Alibi Room (21-minute walk), a modern tavern with an impressive 50 beers on tap, including a number of local selections. If you're more in the mood for cocktails, head to Pourhouse Restaurant (14-minute walk), where you can enjoy a carefully curated whiskey flight at the establishment's 38-foot bar, housed in a remodeled warehouse space.
