Shangri-La Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia is located on the West Coast of Canada and is an amazing city to visit. 

One of its best hotels is the 5-Star and I was fortunate enough to have gotten to stay there for a bit recently.

Let me take you on a little room tour :)

I stayed in the Executive King room with a balcony and just like with all other Shangri-La hotels around the world, the interiors have a cozy feel with distinctive Asian flourishes…

and (as a coffee lover) one of my favorite things, a Nespresso machine

The room itself was positively comfy in all the best ways. Vancouver is known for its moody weather and to be quite honest, there is nothing better than having a cozy, comfy hotel room to stay in while hiding from the rain…

The floor to ceiling windows were SO incredible and provided some truly stunning views of downtown Vancouver

Even cooler? The room had its own enclosed balcony (helpful in the rain!) with some really beautiful downtown views of Vancouver

I don’t know if it’s just me but I love checking out the bathrooms in hotels. The bathroom here is decked out in white marble…

And yes, even the bathtub has a 5-star view of downtown Vancouver!

The amenities were really wonderful as well, L’Occitane toiletries…

There were also lovely little details that Shangri-La is known for like…the pillow menu. Yes, a PILLOW MENU. Can my whole life have a pillow menu?!

And every night a bookmark with a beautiful passage would be left on my bed…

Honestly, I didn’t want to leave.

Things to indulge in while you at Shangri-La Vancouver:

1) Market by Jean Georges 

This is their restaurant and the food is some of the best in Vancouver. I experienced the current tasting menu during my stay and it was, hands down, one of the best meals of my life. 

Definitely try the Sashimi appetizer:

And the desserts were every bit as good as they looked:

2. Get the CHI Aroma Vitality Massage at the spa in the hotel (CHI, The Spa)

It is a massage that brings together elements of Swedish, Shiatsu, and lymphatic drainage combined with the therapeutic qualities of aromatic essential oils. I experienced this while there and it was transformative.

And whatever you do, make sure you enjoy the views at night. Shangri-La has some of the best views of downtown!

I also did a video room tour if you are interested in seeing these images brought to life :)

Hope you enjoy!
