“Perfection”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

By far the best hotel I've stayed at yet - where to start? The soft jasmine scent you smell throughout the lobbies (there are 2) is sooo nice - I couldn't get over how good it smelled. Then you take in the stunning design - the multiple chandeliers, oversized artwork, beautiful leather sofas and sandstone tile with Asian inspired decor and artwork. The staff are all very attentive and happy and dressed in authentic inspired Asian outfits which add so much character to the stay. The corridors are well appointed with very nice wallpaper and sconces - everywhere in the hotel is extremely clean and well kept. And the rooms - beautiful! Floor to ceiling windows, I had a corner room which had excellent views of downtown Vancouver. All the blinds and drapes are automated so with the touch of a button you instantly bring the outdoors in. I had 2 balconies as well - one off the bedroom/living room area one off the bathroom. The palette is neutral and soothing - rich rosewood panelling with taupe and creamy fabrics and carpeting. Dark wood furniture and light upholstery fabric creates a nice contrast. The bathroom is all done in Calcutta marble tile - white with grey striking veining, gorgeous. A deep soaker tub and separate shower and furniture looking vanity piece. The bathroom mirror even has a tv incorporated so you can watch while getting ready - they really thought of everything. They provide the best L'Occtaine care products and the white monogrammed towels smelled so fresh and clean. I am surprised this hotel is not rated #1 on trip advisor - especially since it's the only 5 diamond hotel in Canada - which is apparently very hard to get and a huge accomplishment for the establishment. Overall nothing but great things to say and can't wait to go back!!!

I stayed one night - arrived after midnight and was given a late checkout. Staff were professional and helpful, great location, lovely rooms, great bathroom - everything you would expect from a Shangri La.

Five star service and accommodation in every respect. From the start when our staff inquired about the accommodation and services we required, through to the very prompt and professional services in making the necessary arrangements and finally our two days at the hotel, all of us were extremely satisfied with every aspect of our stay with you.

Yes, they have beautiful rooms, yes the location is great, yes amenities are luxurious but the Shangri La is all about amazing genuine hospitality.

Difference between a good hotel and a great hotel is attention to details and the folks at the Shangri La gets it.

They listen to your every needs and make it happen. Everything is easy.

I said at check-in in a casual way that I needed to eat something quickly before my meeting. Minutes later I got a small snack delivered to my room without asking.

I left all my shopping at the concierge desk as I was in a hurry. Everything was perfectly place in my room when I came back hours ago.

Absolutely, too short, lovely stay.

I had a suite reserved for my engagement, and the Shangri-La staff went above and beyond to ensure our night was memorable. The service was incredible and the rooms absolutely amazing. I would stay again.

We decided to stop in Vancouver for a day before heading to Whistler. The staff were super friendly, helpful, and always smiling. This hotel is centrally located with many shops and restaurants close by. If you can book your room with free breakfast, I would highly recommend it - it's not your typical continental breakfast. I also love that there is complimentary wifi and valet parking.
