HOTEL HAPPENINGS IN YVR
The Wedgewood Hotel, one of my city getaway favorites, celebrates its 25th anniversary with 25% discounts off various guest stuff: off website guestroom rates, off Bacchus restaurant and lounge items (this is the BEST place for afternoon tea and a late night tete-a-tete), off spa treatments (it’s one of the smallest, most gracious spas in existence) and even meeting room rentals if gatherings are on your agenda. Offer is good through September 25th, 2009.
Meanwhile, the Four Seasons has just unveiled its $20 million renovation which revamped the restaurant – the new YEW is very contemporary and very chicly urban, its 372 guestrooms and the meeting areas.
And thirdly, the St. Regis Hotel, has added an artsy touch. The Hotel re-opened early this year after a ginormous renovation that turned the heritage Edwardian hotel into a hip and happening place. The collection comprises 22 pieces from five different artists that blend Native, Hispanic, Asian, Irish and American influences. Eclectic? Yes. Does it work? You be the judge!
