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.

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.

Nice hotel with french accents

For a quick one night stay in Vancouver, I was pleasantly surprised with L'hermitage. Friendly staff, very nice room with a roomy bath. The location is near Robson and Granville, so close to heart of the City and a short walk down to hip Yaletown.

Fabulous finale to our Canadian Adventure

The welcome from the staff, the facilities in the suite to which we were upgraded, the comfort and cleanliness, and the central location made our final two days of our three weeks spent in Canada so special. The hotel was recommended to us and we shall certainly recommend it to others. Not to be missed

A Place to Sleep

Hotel is nice, but staff was not readily available. For price paid, breakfast or some other amenities should have been offered. Likely would not recommend or go back to this hotel.

Best in Vancouver

Nice hotel---staff----location-----many places to buy food and restourants close by. Wish breakfast was free or less costly and PM wine and food would have been nice touch----many hotels do this now. Concierge VERY helpful setting up trips and getting around town.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Victoria and gardens---take the EARLY bus to the gardens---normal arrival is too late and shadows spoil the views. It is a LONG day---and the bus we went on was very uncomfortable.
