We stay in hotels on average once per month, and most typically in apartment style suites. The Rosewood was tremendous in so many ways:
- check in was attentive without being intrusive and as the staff casually chatted with us about our reasons for being in Vancouver, they collected enough information to make restaurant recommendations, confirm our reservation for the hotel restaurant and book the Bentley so that I could get to my morning appointment the next day.
- the staff greeted us by name throughout our 3-day stay. As a comparison, this type of personalized attention did not happen when we stayed at the penthouse in the Trump International.
- the 1 bedroom suite had a scale. For anyone trying to be healthy while travelling, you will know why a scale is not only important, but also suprisingly rare in a hotel room. The only other place we have ever seen a scale was the Trump International penthouse.
- ladies, there are full length mirrors in this suite. Again, most women who use hotels will know how rare it is to find a full length mirror.
- the touchpad lighting system could be controlled from various areas of the suite, and again was unlike anything we have ever seen anywhere else.
- when arriving back to the suite at the end of the evening, we found robes and slippers had been laid out with a cookie for each of us beside the bed. Housekeeping noticed that we wore prescrption glasses and we found eyeglass cleaning pads were left beside our glasses in the bathroom.
- the pool and exercise area was extremely well equipped. The pool in particular was beautiful becuase of its transition lighting.
- the bedside clock was a simple alarm clock. Given the increasing complexity of the bedside clocks/docks/radios in so many hotels, it was a surprising relief to find an elegant clock that was simple to use!
- in the weeks after our stay, we contacted the hotel about purchasing the pillows and bedding. The staff who took the call actually tracked down housekeeping so as to confirm the precise pilllows in the room that we stayed in.
- unlike so many other hotels, housekeeping was absolutely invisible. We never once saw a cart or any evidence that anything other than magic is used to maintain this sparkling and beautiful property.
- overall, the suite was so luxurious that we didn't notice the terrible Vancouver weather. It was a pleasure just to spend time in the room.
The only problem was that the road was noisy, but this is to be expected in a downtown location for a major city. Without a doubt, we will stay here again. We would go back if only to enjoy the stunning lobby.
