“FUNKY and COOL! Hippest hotel in Vancouver.”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

After being tired of staying hotels they all look like they were decorated by my grandparents I wanted someplace for my wife and I to stay was fun, stylish (without being fancy pancy) and close to the happening stuff downtown.

I started reading the reviews about the Opus and thought - this sounds like the place. I saw the picture of the room with the bathroom that has the full window facing the street and decided that we'd give this a try for a one night downtown Vancouver hotel+dinner+drinks evening.

The hotel might be a little hard to find for first timers and there isn't the typical recessed pull out in front for the valet (it's fairly busy street and you just have to pull over to the curb and the valet will come out, or you might have to run in and let them know you are there). Valet is $30 for the night which is a little steep, but easier than worrying about finding parking in Yaletown (where the hotel is located). The lobby was decorated for Christmas and it looked like you stepped into a cool update 60's lobby. Modern design but funky and cool. The lobby also doubles as a lounge (and a nightclub on weekends I guess).

As you check in they offer you champagne (or water) and then it's off to the room. I opted for a the basic room with queen bed as it's the one with the cool bathroom. They have nicer rooms with a fireplace and stuff but they face an inside courtyard and what's the point of staying in a hotel downtown if you can't look out the window. I asked for a room on a upper floor so I wouldn't hear as much street noise.

The room was fairly small, but perfect for a couple. The rooms are blue or red or yellow and we got the blue room. Again like the lobby it look modern, had a fun funky feel, but had everything a hotel room needs. Small flat screen TV, chair, desk, night tables, etc. The bathoom is separated from the main room by some Japanese looking sliding doors. The bathroom itself is the coolest thing in the room - free standing table, full windows, and nice tile shower with glass door. bathroom was very clean (room had nice clean robes as well).

The view wasn't anything super exciting but you could see another building and the downtown buildings in the background. And of course you can look down and see people on the street. If you want to do your business there are shades that can be lowered so people can't look in and see you :) Now maybe lowering and raising the shades is a little annoying but you've probably never had a bathroom with a full windows so it's worth the trouble. Also late at night with the lights off I didn't bother to lower the shade when taking a shower so I could look out at the city (I assume no one could see me) and it was a cool experience.

We had drinks in the lounge downstairs (this was a weeknight). The waitress was nice but seemed a little full of herself but we got drinks quickly and charged it to our room. I had considered eating at the place inside the hotel but I'd read mixed reviews and with tons of amazing places nearby I figured we'd go out and explore.

The hotel is located in Yaletown which is the hip and cool place to hang out in Vancouver. It's near everything! There are dozens of great places to eat within walking distance. We chose to eat that the Blue Water Cafe (some of the best seafood in Vancouver) and the dinner was amazing. It's a great place for a romantic meal - even though it's a larger room and quite busy the tables are far apart and the service makes you feel very well taken care of.

There is a 7-11 nearby and on the way back we picked up some late night snacks to enjoy in the room. Checkout the next day was a snap and the valet had our car ready out front in about 5 mins. The stay was around $179 which is reasonable for downtown Vancouver and we enjoyed ourselves very much. No it's not as fancy as some hotels in the area, but for younger 20-40's couples who want a night out on the town and a fun hotel to stay in without breaking the bank the Opus is a awesome experience. I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Room Tip: We opted for the room with the cool bathroom with full window. Go for a room on an upper floor for...

On checking in I was presented a courtesy glass of sparkling which was needed after a long flight. Spoke with Patrick who was incredibly helpful and checked in quickly. The Internet is only free in business center but they do have wifi which is chargeable... Apparently if you get on a good room rate/confirm before they
may waive this charge too. The rooms are clean and modern.
Overall first impressions are excellent and really pleased with it.

I can't express enough how amazing my recent stay was at the Opus Vancouver. The front desk staff provided top-notch service, and my suite was breathtaking - I had the best sleep ever on the most comfortable bed ever.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Opus is lovely. Stayed in January 2012 for two nights; they greeted us at the front desk with hot mulled wine. Our room, 608, had a bathroom with huge windows that overlooked the street, and directly INTO the apartments across the street. Pulled those blinds down a lot while using the shower & toilet! Fun, though. And the heated floor was great. Cute space, decent tv, beautiful bedding and toiletries. Only had dessert in the restaurant downstairs. Used the in-room coffee maker once, but I take cream and didn't find any in the room, so we just hit the Starbucks across the street the next morning instead. To get to the downtown shopping area we used the train once and took cabs once. It's just a quick walk from this hotel to the water taxi to Granville Island. Really nice staff that works there.

Room Tip: 608 was awesome with a view of the apartments across the street (and they're quite fancy, too)

Das Personal ist äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Zimmer sind großzügig geschnitten und modern eingerichtet. Die Lage ist gut und zentral. Für nur einen geringen Aufpreis erhielten wir einen early check-in, einen late check-out und ein Zimmer-upgrade.

the opus hotel in vancouver offers exceptional value: location, price and quality. When travelling to Vancouver, whether on business or leisure, I would not stay at any other hotel. The staff are warm and helpful, the guest rooms are well appointed and the location, in Yaletown, is superb.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms
