Boutique hotel. You’ve probably heard the term. But have you ever wondered what it actually means?
To start, boutique hotels tend to be on the smaller side, ranging from between 10 to 100 rooms. Guests are usually treated to more luxurious amenities, and there’s often a stylish theme that ensures a more personalized and memorable experience than you’ll find with the more vanilla big box brands.
As a boutique hotel located in downtown Vancouver, all of us at the Victorian Hotel strive to put together an accommodation experience that will appeal to travelers who want to step off the beaten path and chronicle unique and engaging journeys that titillate the senses.
Our hotel is housed in a Victorian style brick building that holds 47 beautifully appointed rooms with a stylish turn-of-the-century architectural design that treats guests to a sumptuous array of modern furnishings. Hardwood floors, high ceilings, and original brickwork feature prominently around the hotel. But we’ve reconciled this antiquarian charm with comfortable modern amenities as well. All the rooms feature conveniences such as high speed Wi-Fi, large flat screen TVs, soaker tubs, pillow top mattresses, and lovely locally made toiletries by Purely Salt Spring.
For gastronomes, the exclusive CINARA restaurant, which won the Best Downtown Restaurant Award in 2016, is also housed on the premises. The chefs at CINARA specialize in exquisitely crafted Modern European Cuisine that’s surprisingly affordable. For example, a menu staple, Clams with corned veal tongue, fregola, & saffron, goes for just $17.00, but there are always plenty of new features to keep things interesting.
For those coming to Vancouver this summer, we invite you experience the style and luxury of a boutique hotel. The Victorian Hotel is located within walking distance of four of Vancouver’s most distinct districts—Yaletown, Robson, Chinatown, and Gastown. There’s no cost for children under 12 (when accompanied by their parents), and our staff members are very knowledgeable about the local restaurants, bike routes, and attractions around downtown Vancouver.
