So what, exactly, separates Vancouver boutique hotels from normal hotels in the city? First, they’re smaller (hence the term “boutique”). Secondly, you can expect better service (usually 24-hours) and a much more social atmosphere. Vancouver boutique hotels often have their own bars, lounges or restaurants.
There are several boutique hotels in Vancouver that offer world-class accommodations in a cozy atmosphere. Many are found in some of the city’s most fashionable neighbourhoods, giving them a certain trendiness not found at most hotels. If you plan on staying, book well in advance. There are way less rooms than in average hotels.
