Rosewood Hotel Georgia: Tried, Tested & Recommended
The Telegraph gives our Rosewood Hotel Georgia a dazzling review!
Style & character: 9/10
Service & facilities: 9/10
SENSE may not have the usual hot tubs, steam rooms and sauna space, but it packs in a deluxe experience nonetheless. Try the Vancouver Signature Sensation for a skin smoothing treatment complete with Vichy shower and essential oils ($190/£113). The spacious day-lit fitness centre boasts the very latest Technogym equipment along with a separate yoga space, and plenty of fresh fruit and water.
The saltwater pool has a fun illuminated floor which softly glows different colours. A Bentley and Mercedes car service offer downtown transfers on demand, and each room comes with a comprehensive guide to local dining and activities. The Clef d’Or concierges can organise everything from after-hours private shopping to tickets to the latest shows. Staff are meticulously trained and offer a genuine warm welcome and have a ‘can’t do enough’ attitude to making each stay something special.
Facilities include: a bar, laundry, pool, room service, Wi-Fi, fitness centre, parking, restaurants, and spa
Pure understated elegance is the theme with a soothing palette of unobtrusive vanilla and cocoa accented by marigold and violet cushions. The Art Deco vibe continues with Twenties-style lamps and wooden furniture with beautiful grain detail. Even standard rooms come with an oversized marble bathroom complete with underfloor heating, double soaker tub and separate rainfall shower. Crisp high thread count linens and cream leather headboards complete the refined picture.
FOOD & DRINK: 8/10
The hotel is home to one of Canada’s most celebrated restaurants, Hawksworth, where chef David Hawksworth and team whip up beautifully plated fresh, seasonal and local food with a twist of Asian flavours and innovative techniques. Splurge and get the tasting menu ($108/£65) to enjoy treats such as local halibut with sea buckthorn. The Hawksworth cocktail bar with its Damien Hirst art and expert bartenders is a must; try the Hotel Georgia cocktail based on an original recipe from the Twenties. Breakfast is a rather pricey – although still delicious – affair with classics such as eggs benedict ($21/£12.50) or steak and eggs ($27/£16).
Value for money: 6/10
