We have been staying at the Wedgewood every few years since around 1990, and it has delighted us every time. The location is excellent, with Robson St right around the corner, and the Bill Reid Foundation's gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery (don't miss the special exhibit on Surrealist Art and its connections to the art of NW coast peoples) right down the street. Taxis in Vancouver are a bargain and easy to find, so it's simple to get to and from restaurants and more distant shops.
The staff at the front desk are superb, cheerfully fulfilling special requests, giving excellent recommendations on touristic activities, and handling suggestions and reservations for restaurants with complete accuracy. They also adjust their information depending on how much the guest already knows about a subject - so much nicer than being recited a standard "script".
The junior suites with balcony are spacious, well-decorated and functional. The box of Daniel chocolates and the nightly fresh cookies were delicious! Although our bathroom was not large, it had a fine soaking tub.
We ate breakfast each morning at Bacchus and had exceptional service from the waitstaff. Eggs Benedict with crab cakes really can't be improved upon! It is also really pleasant to sit at the table in the front corner on a sunny summer Saturday when the floor-to-ceiling windows are open. For a completely different experience, have Christmas dinner there - we did that in 2006, and it was wonderful!
I can't imagine staying anywhere other than the Wedgewood while in Vancouver.
