Sights & Attractions
Throw a leg over your classic Pashley bicycle and roll out through the bustling Vancouver streets. You'll be staying at the apex of Vancouver's downtown sectors, between the old world atmosphere of Gastown, the flourishing shopping district of Robson Street, and the glittering coast of the Pacific. Cycle through Yaletown on the water's edge for a different view of the city, and peddle onto the expansive bicycle path that will have you navigating along False Creek, toward the ancient verdure of Stanley Park, and the exuberance of Granville Island.
Your Vancouver base of operations is the unique and stylish Victorian Hotel, a completely rejuvenated building originally constructed in 1898 as one of the city's first guest houses. The soaring ceilings, original glistening hardwood floors, and elegant contemporary finishes bring this historically vibrant hotel into the present without overpowering its past. Strike it rich in your Deluxe Room like the prospectors of old were hoping to when they stayed in the building over a century earlier. After an exciting whirlwind of a day spent biking through the city, take a languid soak in your room's marble bathroom, envelope yourself in a plush bathrobe and flop onto your sumptuous bed for a perfect night's slumber.
Food & Drink
As the morning light streams through your room's splendid and enormous windows, you'll find your first boost of energy with a delectable complimentary breakfast. Sip a piping hot mug of coffee, accompanied by fruits and bakery fresh breads, all sourced from nearby Vancouver locales. Being on the cusp of some of Vancouver's most gastronomically inclined neighbourhoods, you won't find it difficult to make a choice for your next meal. Tease your palate with a scrumptious lunch at the nearby Meat & Bread, a go-to for sandwiches that features a different daily special among its mouth-watering regulars. Follow up your savoury escapades with your $25 food and beverage credit on a glorious dinner at The Ascot, a refined lounge that brings together the essence of British pub culture with New York flair. Wind down with a proper Pimm's Cup while you tuck into the warm flavours of BBQ Pork Croquettes, Country Lamb Shank or the more traditional Bangers and Mash.
