Located on the banks of False Creek and surrounded by spectacular waterfront and cityscape views, this hidden gem offers the feeling of a resort while being completely accessible to all the urban amenities business travellers and vacationers may wish to enjoy.
Eighty-two newly renovated rooms are complete with superior features like 46” high definition TVs and complimentary wireless or wired Internet. Sweet dreams come with ease with deluxe mattresses and duvets, high thread count linens and triple sheeting. Other amenities include a 24-hour business centre, available fax and photocopy services, fitness centre, safety deposit boxes and complimentary newspaper. The hotel’s three executive suites overlook False Creek, and two fourth floor penthouses each have their own hot tub. A business traveller’s stay will certainly be memorable.
Within steps of the hotel’s front doors, Granville Island offers a unique artisanal shopping experience, vibrant comedy and theatre scene, culinary classes, sake tasting and a local craft brewery. With the Aquabus ferry dock a short walk away, take a ride across False Creek to Vancouver’s unique neighbourhood and destinations, including Yaletown, the Science Centre and Kitsilano. Hotel bicycles are available for rides along the sea wall or around Stanley Park with its ancient cedars and pristine beaches.
Business travellers can depend on Granville Island Hotel staff members, who are dedicated “small meeting specialists,” and experienced at facilitating events for local and international clients. The hotel’s newly renovated meeting rooms can accommodate conferences of up to 100 participants, and are complete with large windows that flood the space with natural light, as well let in the ocean breeze. Every conference need is satisfied, from in-house audio/visual equipment to arranging meals and snacks from The Dockside Restaurant.
Although Granville Island may have plenty of dining options, The Dockside Restaurant is loved by locals and guests alike for its fresh seafood and wood-fired oven classics. The restaurant seats 200 and features a 50-foot aquarium, which wraps around the open kitchen. The waterfront patio catches the sun from morning to late afternoon and with fireplaces to stay cozy on cool nights, the patio is a terrific option for dining. Or enjoy B.C.’s finest cocktail creations, local wines and craft beer in the inviting lounge inside. Dockside’s brewery offers a selection of handcrafted signature beers, all brewed in-house. Complete with breathtaking panoramic views of the city, having a meal at The Dockside is a feast for all of the senses, and an ideal spot for casual fine dining. The Dockside is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
