We arrived at L’Hermitage after a long, late flight, and the front desk clerk greeted us by name as we walked in the door. It’s true it was nearly 2:00 a.m. and we were the last guests of the night, but still. Awesome staff at this hotel. Awesome!
In town for a full week to attend a large conference, we elected to stay in this sweet boutique hotel rather than one of the big impersonal chains surrounding the convention center, and we made a brilliant choice. The walk to meetings was easy, and L’Hemitage was divine.
We chose the solarium room because of the full kitchen and washer and dryer. Updated and fitted with Bosch appliances, the kitchen was a welcome oasis after a long day. Wine glasses, espresso machine, creamer in the fridge, linen napkins in the drawer, and a gas-stove top. The IGA on the corner of Richards and Robson was well stocked with all the gourmet items we could want to snack on, and the liquor store just around the block had a fabulous selection. We had everything we might possibly need in our room, including the proverbial chocolates on the pillow each night.
The bed was an absolute cloud. Even though our sixth-floor room was on the street, and during this particular stay major construction of a large tower was occurring across the way, little noise entered the room. Plenty of closets, a deep bathtub, terry robes, slippers, the solarium, an extra meditation room, and a gas fireplace are some of the appreciated amenities in the room (#603).
Each day, I visited the outdoor lap pool and relished the warm salt-water and arching spray. The hot tub was well maintained and so was the steam room in the woman’s restroom. The fitness center is small but again had everything I wanted. Breakfast in L’Orangerie was worth the $17 charge, especially the salmon, croissants, terrific coffee, and fresh fruit.
Every day, I intended to borrow one of the hotel’s free bicycles and ride along the seawall walk and down around Stanley Park, but I never got to it! So much to see and do in this beautiful city, and the hotel’s location is close to it all.
All in all, L’Hermitage is a Vancouver treasure. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.
