The Entertainment

The Hotel

Construction of Vancouver’s “Castle in the City” began in 1928. Completed in a French Château style in 1939 that remains iconic to this day, when the hotel opened it was the tallest building in Vancouver. With its many elegant ballrooms, restaurants, and bars, it quickly became the socialite hub of the city.


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.
