The hotel experience is excellent from the moment you check in till the moment one leaves. The rooms are delightful and electronics are used to minimize the amount of effort required to create the ombience you desire.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at the Shangri-la Hotel, Vancouver. Upon pulling into their lower lobby, we passed by a unique candle wall before being greeted by a kind woman at the reception desk who checked us in. With two hands and a slight bow, she handed us our room keys and we headed upstairs to the 7th...

I can sum up this hotel experience in one word, amazing! They got a nice view of the downtown van-city. Choose the higher level floors to enjoy the scenery. Try their Restraurant "market" by Jean-Georges. Everything is perfect in this place.

Loved my little "Staycation" at the beautiful Shangri-La Vancouver! The staff were charming and helpful, the room was well appointed and comfortable and the spa was fantastic! The hotel's gym is gorgeous and who fun to have a juice bar just outside the gym doors for an after-workout smoothie!

Coming back to the Shangri La every afternoon after a day spent in sunless, cloudy and rainy Vancouver was the highlight of my trip. Where to start: The rooms are amazing, extremely modern but not cold and sterile at the same time. The bathroom deserves a 5 Star rating in itself for the Oppulence and Glamour of itself. I thouroughly...

A bleak, rainy, busy day in downtown Vancouver, the city seemed packed. The front door reception at the shangrila was warm, but efficient. They gave my name to the front desk clerk, who had my key ready, no fuss no muss, I felt the stress of the drive slipping away. I always feel this hotel is very private. That's the...

This is definitely my new favourite place to stay in Vancouver!! We arrived for our 2 nights stay by car via the lower driveway.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.

Basking in complete ease, you contemplate your day ahead from the cosy comfort of your room at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. Vancouver’s glittering city skyline against mountainous backdrops. As you tuck into a sumptuous breakfast, a sweeping view of the vibrant metropolis that is Vancouver unfolds before you. Settling into your tastefully furnished surroundings, you catch a glimpse of the majestic firs of Stanley Park in the distance. A leisurely stroll along the sapphire blue waters of its lakes would be heavenly. You decide on a short drive to Grouse Mountain. You’re in the right season for helicopter rides, and skiing and snowboarding off its slopes. The rush of height and speed proves refreshingly exhilarating.
