Spending the Night: Vancouver's Historic Hotels

Vancouver Heritage Foundation
Date of Event: 
Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

As part of Heritage Week 2016: “Distinctive Destinations: Experience Historic Places”, John Atkin leads this walking tour of downtown Vancouver hotels, past and present, to discover the history and architecture of these storied buildings. Vancouver’s historic hotels speak of the way early travelers experienced our city, and how design was integral to the type of clientele the hotel was hoping to attract. From humble structures hugging the shoreline on the edge of a forest, to the grandeur and elegance of the iconic railroad hotel now updated with today’s luxury offerings, this tour takes a look at the fascinating history of spending the night in Vancouver.
