boutique hotel VancouverAn 87% approval rating on Expedia provides a lot for a business to crow about. For the Vancouver-based Victorian Hotel, it’s the culmination of a lot of hard work, including extensive ongoing renovations and steady marketing.

Even though the Vancouver boutique hotel offers only 47 beautiful rooms, features like free continental breakfast, WiFi, nearby restaurants, and a 24-hour front desk have made it a go-to destination for out of town tourists and earned it a 2016 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

The smoke-free hotel offers coffee and tea in the common area, a computer station, and—even rarer in downtown Vancouver—self-parking. With the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Rogers Arena, and Canada Place a brisk 10-minute trot away, the Victorian Hotel is a convenient option for those coming into Vancouver for different events.

Best of all, the rooms feature high-speed WiFi, comfy pillow top beds, and flat-screen TVs featuring all the popular cable channels. In addition, there are high-quality SALT toiletries, plush bathrobes, and deep soaker tubs to ensure guests are refreshed and relaxed during their stay.

With all the conveniences of a modern hotel set an 1898 Victorian-style brick building, the Victorian Hotel offers guests turn of the century with a twist.

Vancouver boutique hotelAs a Vancouver boutique hotel, the Victorian combines casual elegance with historic design to provide guests with a comfortable and convenient stay in the heart of Vancouver. Housed in a beautiful Victorian-style building that dates back to 1898, the hotel sets you in the perfect location to explore the city in any season.

For those wondering what Vancouver has to offer in the pumpkin spice season, the marvellous answer is foliage and festivals. The city is simply awash in fall colours, which makes even a simple walk a lively and beautiful outdoor adventure. However, for those wondering what else to do, there are two holidays (Thanksgiving and Halloween), the VIFF (Vancouver International Film Festival), and plenty of events and activities.

While evergreen trees dominate most of BC, Vancouver does have its fair share of deciduous, which show off a rhapsody of colour this time every year. For the best fall viewing, catch a bus and ride over to Stanley Park, which is about 10 minutes away from the hotel. As a designated World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful parks in the world, it’s worth seeing in any season!

September is a particularly fine time to indulge in some outdoor adventures. Whether it’s kayaking on the harbour front or zip-lining through the trees, Vancouver has a veritable smorgasbord of outdoor activities to choose from. One of our favourites is bicycling along the Seawall. You can rent bicycles from vendors all around the city or try Mobi, the City’s own bike share system.

For cinephiles, fall is THE time to visit. The acclaimed Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) just keeps getting bigger and better. Last year, the festival screened more than 300 films from more than 60 countries and attracted a star-studded audience of industry insiders, celebrities, and movie-lovers from across British Columbia.

Thanksgiving & Halloween

Thanksgiving is a family-oriented holiday, but it’s also harvest season. Look beyond the succulent squash, turkey, potatoes, and pie, because Vancouver is a culinary haven full of innovation. Many restaurants will roll out their own interpretations of this delicious tradition.

Of course, the biggest event of the month is Halloween, which is probably only second to Christmas in terms of activates and attractions. There are always plenty of corn mazes, haunted houses, and parties to celebrate at during this spooky time. Remember to do your research and make your bookings early, because events like these tend to sell out fast.

With so much to see and do, this is definitely the season to fall in love with Vancouver. And if you’re staying at the Victorian Hotel, you’ll be in the middle of it all. As a Vancouver boutique hotel, you’ll need to make reservations, and don’t hesitate to ask our staff for their recommendations, because the locals always know the best haunts.
