Right in the very heart of Yaletown, the Opus hotel is the quintessential hipster hotel. Walking distance to shops, lots of restaurants, late night places, the location is superb. All that is to not even to mention being steps away from the super clean, uber efficient and yes, HONOR SYSTEM Sky Train.
With the recent renovation of their first floor complete, La Pentola provides a very pleasant airy place for breakfast or even any meal. But breakfast here is my favorite. Or walk up the street to the famous Elbow Room !
The ultimate in avant garde hipster slick moves is the addition of an iPad and Samusng Galaxy 3 in EACH room. We were quite surprised and pleased by this. With the Samsung your room number travels with you! Just have someone call the hotel and your Samsung rings wherever you are in Vancouver. With smartphones being so ubiquitous and with no card carrying hipster without one, I am not sure how useful this is. The music selection on the iPad is quite narrow and limited however. They really could use a broader playlist.
The regular room, with its smallish balcony is quite nicely decorated, being most currently re-done just a month or so ago in March 2013. The artwork, with its water pistol x ray images may be a little thought provoking, but I for one consider that part of the very role of art.
Of all things Opus geographic, my favorite is that you can walk out the door, hand a left and another left and be at Rodney's Oyster House. Considering myself an oyster aficionado, Rodney's is as good as it gets.
From the moment you pull up to the door and are greeted by the front desk / bellman help, to quick, friendly concierge help to the laid back late night buzz cocktail service, the service is just super ! SUPER SERVICE !
The Opus Van gets my unequivocal two thumbs up 5 star rating. Especially with a great rate, this hotel is a delight to stay in while in Van.
