We celebrated our anniversary by staying at the Opus Hotel where they had this fabulous special. Included was ½ bottle of champagne, large gorgeous orchid, framed photo (you email the photo) and continental breakfast. It was very appealing and perfect for such a celebration.
Situated in Yaletown across the street from a Skytrain (rapid transit) station and 1 ½ block walk to water, it’s in an area with some history and character as well as newer condo buildings. The hotel itself is quite modern with a boutique feel and is currently being redone (the sixth and seventh floors are finished). We were fortunate to get room 701 which I recommend. It’s on the top floor and facing the courtyard; while no view, it was very quiet, even with the window partially open.
The rooms are uniquely decorated. Ours was large with a king size bed, purple walls, large gas fireplace across (and to the left) of the bed. Beside the fireplace is a settee. The fireplace was très romantic at night. The bathroom has a heated floor and a separate very large shower and tub (L’Occitane products). The room was recently redone and very clean. We arrived to our room to find the champagne on ice, fabulous orchid, photo of us, personalized card and little bowl of banana chips on the large desk. It was all most impressive.
Small things I enjoyed: coffee maker with good quality coffee, creamers in the bar fridge rather than powdered creamer, water in a carafe (not bottles) brought up to the room soon after arrival, and a recycling section in the garbage container.
The iPad (3G) and $14.95/day we didn’t use as we were just there overnight but it certainly would be very convenient for those from out of town. It was nice to have an iPod docking station.
Great staff; consistently friendly, helpful and professional. The only downside was the scent in the lobby. They’ve been trying this as something new and it was my only complaint as I avoid hotels with scents (I mentioned this to the staff when I was there). Fortunately, there was no scent in the room so once checked in (or out), you can mostly avoid it.
I would definitely recommend the Opus Hotel.
