I have stayed at 4 of the 5 top-rated hotels in Vancouver (from tripadvisor) in the last year. The L'Hermitage is rated number one for many reasons.
I booked a one bedroom suite with a fold-out couch in the living room and I was upgraded to a one bedroom suit with a full kitchen. The suite was very nicely decorated and the furniture was in very good condition. We had a fireplace and a washer/dryer. Our suite was on the 7th floor and had a nice view over the outdoor heated pool and hot tub area. It had a balcony with two chairs and a bistro table on it. The kitchen was beautiful and functional. I didn't have time to cook on this trip but I checked all the cupboards and it was very well equipped compared to most hotel suites with kitchens in them. It definitely had everything I needed to cook meals in my room.
I booked the special which included valet parking and breakfast. Parking at downtown hotels in Vancouver averages $30/night so the free included parking was a great bonus as we had a rental car with us. The breakfast was served in a nice breakfast room with servers bringing coffee (and lattes etc) and juice to the table. The breakfast was a buffet that included waffles, pancakes, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, yogurt, fruit, breads and pastries.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The valet brought our car quickly each time we requested it.
I am planning a longer stay in Vancouver this summer and I will be booking this hotel. I am looking forward to using the pool and outdoor lounging area, the balcony seating area, the hotel gym and the well equipped kitchen.
This hotel is the best of all because it has everything in one place. The other hotels in the top 5 that I have stayed in each had some of the amenities that I like to have but only the L'Hermitage has them all and at a great price too. Only the Times Square and L'Hermitage have full kitchens and washer/dryers. Times Square and Loden don't have a pool. The Fairmont Pacific Rim and the Loden don't give you a full living area with a separate bedroom at affordable suite prices.
So if you are looking for a boutique hotel with lots of amenities, a great location, friendly staff and reasonable rates then look no further.
