Fodor's Expert Review Loden Hotel
1177 Melville St., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6E 0A3, Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada See on Map
The Loden Hotel, a boutique hotel with a prime location in Coal Harbour, offers some of the best views and amenities in the city. From the amazing staff to the luxe furnishings to the floor-to-ceiling windows, no detail has been spared at this property, making for one of the best hotel experiences in the city.
Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the guestrooms at the Loden Hotel with natural light and provide unparalleled views of North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park, and the Coal Harbour Marina. And with a maximum of 7 guestrooms per floor, you can enjoy those views without any noise from your neighbors.
Ask for an upgrade on check-in—you might be lucky enough to snag a corner room, which feature two walls of windows and some of the best views in Vancouver.
The bathrooms at Loden Hotel feature classy gray and white marble and large showers and soaking tubs.
The lobby at Loden Hotel is cozy and inviting, with comfy couches, a fireplace, and a self-serve Nespresso coffee bar and selection of TWG teas (available from 3am to 10am).
YOU SHOULD KNOW Loden Hotel has Wifi, but it's not free—so if you want to connect, expect to pay a fee.
Get a massage, facial, or mani/pedi at the Loden Spa Suite, then follow up your treatment with a 30-minute session in the infrared sauna (free with any spa service).
Guests have 24-hour access to the BeFit Fitness Studio. The 1,400 sq. ft. fitness area has a lovely view of the city and has everything you need to get in a solid workout, including boxing equipment, cardio machines, free weights, and yoga props.
Grab brunch at Tableau Bar Bistro, which serves French-inspired breakfast staples with a West Coast twist.
Valet parking is $45 per night, but there's no need to bring a car—with complimentary bicycles and free drop-offs downtown via Loden Cab, the Loden Hotel makes it incredibly easy to navigate Vancouver sans car. If you need to get further out in the city, you can catch the SkyTrain at Burrard Station, which is a quick 3-minute walk from the hotel.
Stop by Coast (5-minute walk), one of the city's best seafood restaurants, for their daily happy hour from 3pm to 6pm, where you can enjoy $1 oysters and one of the restaurant's signature seafood towers—an impressive display that's perfect for sharing. If you're looking for a fun and lively night out, try Cardero’s (10-minute walk), which, in addition to a killer menu of seafood, features live music from local artists every night of the week.
Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar (10-minute walk) is a must-visit for their impressive scotch selection, inventive craft cocktail menu, and their live music scene (the bar has live music Tuesday through Saturday). The Cascade Room (11-minute drive) is an awesome late night spot if you want to let loose on the dance floor. Bonus: The Cascade room has a special mocktail menu perfect for designated drivers.
