My second stay at The Sutton Place in Vancouver (April 21-24, 2011)was just as charming as the first. The hotel is well located in downtown Vancouver. Anything and everything to do is within easy walking distance (try a Japadog from the stand out out in front of the hotel). Spectacular shopping is just around the corner.
From the start, it was easy to see that my stay would be a pleasing one. The doorman, valet and bellman were attentive and very helpful. Check-in was an absolute breeze. Regrettably, a suit and a couple of dress shirts of mine did not travel well, and a quick phone call to the Valet brought quick attention. All items were expertly pressed and returned to me within a few hours. On Saturday, I sent a pair of shoes down for a quick polish and had them back within the hour.
Thursday night (our first night), my father-in-law and I had a delightful dinner at Fleuri, the hotel restaurant. The waitstaff was excellent, and the food expertly prepared, not to mention delicious. The menu is intriguing and invites you to open your mind and palette to unique preparations. The service and menu are on par with some of the best restaurants at which I've dined, if not better. I followed with a couple of drinks at Gerard Lounge, where I found the bar staff to be an agreeable lot, eagerly helping the Canuck fans assuage their grief over an embarrassing showing against Chicago.
We stayed in a two bedroom residence. The room was well appointed and had ample closet space. A small kitchenette was in the room, though we did not avail ourselves of it much. All of the necessary accoutrements are available for use. The beds are such that it's a toss-up between getting out of bed straightaway and seeing the city or tarrying awhile (which I did on Saturday morning) before starting your day. These racks are ideal for breakfast in bed.
I cannot imagine wanting to stay anywhere else when i visit Vancouver. The hotel staff from housekeeping to management is first rate. It is readily apparent that they enjoy their jobs and take customer service seriously. I've stayed at upscale hotels comparable to The Sutton Place and been left wondering why I spent the extra money over a Holiday Inn; never so with The Sutton Place. My thanks and compliments to an extraordinary hotel!
It is worth mentioning that The Sutton Place is an upscale hotel and as such is priced accordingly, but it was all money very well spent.
