Canada's famous Fairmont Vancouver Hotel
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is a magnificent city on Canada's beautiful Pacific Coast. The city is world famous for its active cultural and arts scenes, its distinctive Canadian architecture and forward thinking urban design which make Vancouver, BC, Canada a perennial on every list of the world's most livable cities. Vancouver, Canada is an exceptional place in Canada to visit by train, with a variety of Canada train tours and vacation packages making stops in the city. With a Pacific Canadian coastal climate which remains mild all year, the Vancouver area is the site of Canada's Pacific rainforests; themselves a popular Canadian vacation attraction for many on their trips and vacations.
While visitors can choose from a number of different accommodations in the city with their vacation packages, it is Vancouver, BC, Canada's iconic Hotel Vancouver which offers a unique balance of luxury and Canadian historical interest. The Hotel Vancouver is a recent addition to the line of Canadian-Pacific Grand Hotels, being acquired in 1988 from CN hotels, but is every bit as grand as its Canadian historic railway hotel siblings.
The Hotel Vancouver, actually the third hotel in downtown Vancouver, Canada to bear the name was built in 1939, slightly later than many of the other Canadian grand railways hotels. The "Hotel Van" as it is colloquially referred to, is architecturally distinct from other railway Canadian hotels as well. Built in the grand Italianate Revival style, the Canadian hotel is a visually striking building which is an instantly recognizable landmark in the Vancouver cityscape to any visitor on vacation here in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Until the 1970's the Canadian hotel was also home to the Vancouver bureau of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The Hotel Vancouver's Panama Roof Ballroom was home to a weekly radio broadcast for more than two decades, making this hotel not only a piece of living Canadian railway history, but also Canadian broadcasting history in Canada!
The hotel provides luxurious accommodations in a historic setting which is only steps away from all of the culture and active nightlife Vancouver has to offer. With amenities including a 50' indoor pool, whirlpool, saunas, fitness center and luxury spa, it might be hard to tear yourself away from the Hotel Vancouver on your Canadian vacation to explore the city participating in sightseeing tours included in your Canadian vacation packages!
Some of the Canadian city's best dining can be found right inside of the Hotel Vancouver; Griffin's is one of Vancouver's favorite bistros and its Sunday brunch is a local legend. Even in a city with as many terrific options for dining on your vacation as this one, a visit to Griffin's is something not to be missed on any trips or tours of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
