LOCATION: Couldn’t be better. A couple of blocks to the great shops and restaurants of Robson Street. Walkable to Gastown, the waterfront, Roger’s Arena, Queen Elizabeth Theatre and BC Place.
There was a Starbucks just a couple of doors down, making an easy and affordable option for breakfast (although the hotel’s Bacchus lounge/restaurant looked utterly charming.)
ROOMS: Not huge, but lovely and with everything you need. There were only eight rooms on our 9th floor. The wi-fi was free, but sometimes slow. Hall noise occasionally a problem.
My sister, our two daughters and I reserved a room with two double beds. We would have preferred two queen beds but that wasn’t an option. Fortunately, we got a free upgrade to a one-bedroom suite. My daughter slept on the comfortable pull-out couch in the living room and the rest of us shared the two double beds in the bedroom. The beds were pushed together almost like one enormous king-sized bed. This worked fine for us, but the four of us in the two doubles would have been tight!
The bathroom was spacious with a large shower and a big soaking tub. They had generous portions of soaps, shampoos and other toiletries. We had four cozy bathrobes and disposable slippers, too.
A nice-sized box of chocolates awaited us in our room at check-in. This complimentary gift made our female quartet exceptionally happy.
We had a huge outdoor patio with two chairs and a small table, making a nice place for breakfast.
We enjoyed the efficient housekeeping and evening turn-down service with cookies and bottled water. Need a couple extra pillows or somebody to make up your pull-out couch? Our call instantly delivered a staff member.
VALET: Such fun to be greeted by the smiling valets out front! One even wore a top hat. We stayed only two nights, but everyone seemed to know us at the door and the front desk right away. The staff seemed exceptionally friendly and eager to please.
PARKING: No problem--they grabbed our bags and whisked our car away before we knew it. The parking fee was $19 per night. (With tax and fees, our room totaled about $300 per night for the four of us, not counting the parking.)
AMENITIES: We checked out the spacious gym with plenty of modern equipment. Off the gym we found a large, leafy terrace with several outdoor tables.
Down the hall there was a small but efficient business office with computer and fax machine. We didn’t use the spa, but it smelled and looked inviting.
OVERALL: The Wedgewood has all the advantages and class of any big high-end hotel, but with the charm and warmth of a smaller place. I’ve stayed at Vancouver’s Hyatt for business many times. This trip was for pleasure and we picked the Wedgewood. I preferred the Wedgewood, hands-down.
