No luxurious detail has been missed at this gorgeous downtown hotel. Guests here find the finest accommodations, distinctive amenities, and courteous, attentive service in a fantastic location just beyond chic Robson Street. There are few places anywhere lovelier for a cup of coffee than the L'Hermitage Vancouver's terrace garden. And guests wonder how they have lived without the outdoor saltwater lap pool, kept heated to a perfect 15 C.

Rooms

Thoughtfully designed and beautifully decorated, these guest rooms and suites capture the essence of comfort and luxury. All rooms and suites feature modern amenities such as large plasma televisions, iPod docking stations with MP3 connection, and complimentary Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access. High-quality linens, designer bathrobes, and spacious Italian-marble tubs are also standard. Some suites have a fireplace, high-pressure rain showerhead, furnished balcony or patio with stunning views, walk-in closet, solarium with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances.

Property features

Guests will find the best in everything at this sophisticated boutique hotel. Artful decor, modern amenities and luxurious details grace every suite. Enjoy the view near the windows at L'Orangerie, the on-site restaurant serving breakfast daily, or take your meal to the terrace garden when the weather is particularly nice. Tour the city by bicycle with complimentary rentals, do laps in the heated outdoor saltwater pool, or hit the fitness studio before visiting the steam room for a great way to start or end the day.

Incredible service

This hotel is top notch at customer service. Extremely polite and attentive staff. Everyone you see stops, greets you and asks if there is anything you need. Hotel has a good location to all the downtown area. IGA and many many restaurants within a block. Hotel is an easy walk to Rogers arena, Gastown and shopping. Our room was beautiful. We were surprised by a very large balcony patio outside our room which was not listed in the room description. There is construction across the street but we barely heard the noise. Only thing that would have been nice in the room would be a microwave. Easily the best hotel, we have ever stayed in and we will come back to Vancouver just to stay there!

Great Stay

The location was very convenient a relatively short walk from the SkyTrain/Canada Line. There's also a supermarket/grocery right next door and a row of really good, small ethnic restaurant/takeouts right around the corner (Japadog!.. and others)... and no trip to Vancouver is complete without a stop at the Elbow Room (just be sure to clean your plate!), which is also within walking distance. The boutique restaurant to the other side (Medina) was also excellent... a little pricier than other local options, but definitely worth it. Really, all the West End/Downtown neighborhoods are well within comfortable walking distance. The room was very clean, roomy enough, with a nice electric fireplace, cable TV, mini-fridge and other amenities. Bathroom was spacious, clean, and well-appointed. I liked that they gave you the option to keep your towels longer or toss them in the bathtub to have them washed. And the fully closed-off W/C was also nice. We took daily bike rides to and through beautiful Stanley Park, taking advantage of the free bike rentals provided by the hotel (as long as you reserve them ahead of time). Staff was extremely pleasant, courteous and helpful. The banquet style in-hotel breakfast wasn't really worth the cost, unless you really plan on packing it away.. The only downside of our stay wasn't the fault of the hotel. We had an outside corner room and, while I was worried the active construction across the street would be an issue (it wasn't, to my surprise, probably because we didn't really sleep in too late in the mornings) what WAS an issue were the guys driving around in little import cars with super loud exhausts on them, who apparently believe the way to drive correctly is to incessantly goose the gas pedal all hours of the night (I'd pity their girlfriends, but not having any is probably why they're doing that all night). Anyway, after the first night I found an online white/pink/brown noise generator website on my notebook, that did the trick, so I didn't have a problem sleeping the rest of the stay. Definitely recommended, and plan to return.

Great Friendly Hotel

Great boutique hotel in downtown Vancouver. Large, clean rooms with luxury bathrooms that have stand up shower and separate tub. Very friendly and helpful staff made good restaurant recommendations. Excellent value for money. Small but clean gym facility. Would stay again next time in Vancouver.

Brilliant stopover

After a 14 hour flight L'Hermitage was a perfect place to stop and re-group before moving onto the next stage of the trip. We appreciated very much the thoughtful and attentive service and the understated elegance and comfort of the facility overall.

Central City location

Great boutique style hotel, very centrally located in Vancouver which was ideal for a two night stay. Staff were all very helpful & welcoming. The room was very comfortable & had a small outside balcony with table & chairs. The buffet breakfast, charged as an extra, was very good with a hot selection of food also provided. We would definitely return to L'Hermitage when next in Vancouver.

Great location, right near Canada Line too

Terrific boutique hotel that is 3 blocks from the Canada Line. Take the train from the airport, it's faster then a taxi by FAR. I had an event at BC Place and it is about 4 blocks from there too. If you have a Canucks game or concert at Rogers Centre, location wise this works great too. If you need to walk to Gastown its about 15 minutes away. I really liked the hotel.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Canada Line to go downtown and save the money and time that you would be in a cab.
