Construction of Vancouver’s “Castle in the City” began in 1928. The Great Depression caused delays and it wasn’t finished until 1939, opening its doors just in time to accommodate a royal visit from King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. Completed in a French Château style that remains iconic to this day, when the hotel opened it was the tallest building in Vancouver, boasting 17 stories and 500 rooms. With its many elegant ballrooms, restaurants, and bars, it quickly became the socialite hub of the city. Over the years it has housed world royalty, the CBC’s Vancouver bureau, politicians (both in favour and disgraced), celebrities (both in favour and disgraced), and a resident ghost affectionately dubbed the Lady in Red.
A landmark of architecture, culture, and luxury in the very heart of downtown, the Hotel Vancouver is Vancouver’s premier destination for New Year’s Eve.
The blowout is being put on by Arrival, a Vancouver-based agency with the mission of creating extraordinary experiences. In the past we’ve programmed the Khatsahlano Street Party, produced Food Cart Festival, re-opened the Fox Cabaret, and staged the massive NYE and Halloween Celebrations at the Hotel Vancouver.
