Loden VancouverVancouver, British Columbia
Poised at the edge of Coal Harbour in lovely downtown Vancouver is the newly-opened Loden Vancouver hotel, part of Kor Hotel Group's urban portfolio and its first foray into the Canadian market. Loden Vancouver's modern design, inspired by the region's cascading mountains and placid waterways, is a city skyline standout with a mix of gleaming curved glass, natural stone and copper positioned to mimic ocean waves. The compilation of spacious guest rooms and suites are meticulously appointed in a soothing palette of chocolaty earth tones and rich caramels, coupled with an assortment of amenities. Little details, such as heated bathroom floors and fully-stocked private bars, provide that extra element of comfort and luxury.
This urbane retreat is also home to Voya, a destination restaurant and bar with a menu of West Coast cuisine and chilled libations. The intimate dining room and lounge boasts a hip motif of ice-blue hues, bold pattern screens, oversize mirrors and sleek white-lacquered tables - all illuminated by a trio of crystal chandeliers. The restaurant is also eco-friendly and part of a sustainable program that promotes green practices. Indulge behind the doors of the intimate spa suite, where a selection of customized aesthetic treatments and a menu of massage techniques await. You will also find a state-of-the-art fitness room with 24-hour access. Beyond the hotel lobby is where you will find many diverse neighborhoods teeming with museums, galleries and fabulous shops. Granville Island, a nearby Vancouver landmark, with its public market, culinary finds and unusual street performers, should not be missed when you stay at Loden Vancouver.
