The EXchange Hotel brings Vancouver’s rich history into a luxurious 21stcentury setting, providing guests with a sophisticated and contemporary escape from the ordinary

Amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver’s financial district, you will find its most distinguished historical landmark; the original Vancouver Stock Exchange. This building, which once played host to the city’s greatest illustrious and creative minds, is now home to Executive Hotel & Resorts’ latest revelation; the new, world class luxury hotel, the EXchange Hotel Vancouver. 

Given the EXchange’s historical and architectural significance, it was necessary for Swiss-based firm Harry Gugger Architects, (whose portfolio includes the iconic “Bird’s Nest,” Beijing’s National Stadium) to marry the building’s rich, art-deco character with modern flair. The result is the building’s stunning design features like the 32-storey pinstriped curtain wall and the immaculately preserved 1909 facade.

This inspired architecture extends itself to the hotel’s 202 rooms, suites and studios. Every room in the EXchange features custom wall art murals, inlaid herringbone hardwood floors and gorgeous marble bathrooms. Each room and suite also features luxury amenities, imported linens and indulgent products from L’Occitane. The exclusive Dividend Floor offers high-end design and impeccable views with an enclosed private rooftop court featuring greenery walls. Fully indulge and relax knowing your stay helps our planet; the hotel is proud of its title as Vancouver’s first LEED Platinum Heritage Conversion.

The EXchange offers select venues for different flavours of celebration. They range from The Cabana, a semi-private dining room, The Mezzanine, which is perfect for larger gatherings, complete with a beautiful private patio, and the immaculate Townley Studio; a 1,400 square-foot space boasting stunning oak hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and state of the art audio-visual capabilities. The EXchange is also home to a restaurant and café; Hydra Estiatorio Mediterranean—a stylish bar and restaurant named after the coveted island, and the Hydra Café, a gorgeous mirrored coffee bar modelled after The Philosophers Library in Greece, which are both set to open in March 2019.

The EXchange marries traditional with modern-day style, offering guests a unique blend of historic inspired architecture, trendy interior design, luxurious amenities, sustainability and delicious food and drink. EXchange Hotel Vancouver. Experience history reimagined.
