The Shangri-La Vancouver is a luxurious 5-star sanctuary set between the mountains and the sea on Canada’s west coast. The stunning glass façade rises 62 storeys into the sky, making it the tallest building in the city, and an impressive choice for discerning guests.
The hotel’s unrivalled location and towering height provide stunning views across the city, seawall, mountains, and ocean. Guests will find it perfectly situated to explore Vancouver’s greatest sights like the majestic firs of Stanley Park, the vibrant shopping and entertainment scene on Robson Street, and delectable dining options on Granville. Of course, why venture out to eat when you have a restaurant in-house from three-star Michelin chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten? Bon appetit indeed.
When not out exploring the city, the seawall, or the slopes, guests can relax in exquisitely appointed rooms with Asian-inspired décor and luxurious finishes. Floor-to-ceiling windows (and balconies in select suites) are designed to maximize the majestic views and allow ample natural light that highlights the golden hues and sophisticated palette of the surrounding scene. Serenity, luxury, and comfort – expect nothing less from Shangri-La.
