Without hotels, the miniature soap industry would fold, leaving baby hedgehogs as smudgy as chimney sweeps. Keep spiky little ones fragrant with today’s Groupon: for $129, you get a superior room, parking, and a $25 food voucher (a $312 total value) at Coast Coal Harbour Hotel on West Hastings Street.
A contemporary hotel that combines satisfying proximity to downtown Vancouver’s sights and shopping with hip, modern amenities, the Coast Coal Harbour is a spacious and stylish improvement on home. Each brand-new superior room is environmentally friendly and—although it’s too modest to boast—sports a king bed, terry-cloth bathrobes, extra-special toiletries, and (on select floors) pet-friendliness. What’s more, all Coast Coal guests can annoy their neighbours by bragging that their visit will include free Wi-Fi, marvellous Vancouver views, a business centre, a full gym, and, cooperative seasons permitting, a landscaped roof deck with an outdoor lap pool and hot tub. Today’s Groupon also includes a $25 voucher to the hotel’s close friend and restaurant, Prestons, whose West Coast–friendly, Euro-Asian menu looks equally inviting through breakfast-, lunch-, or dinner-coloured glasses.
Although both sides of one’s exceptionally fluffy pillow are usually enough to qualify as a welcome sight, the hotel is located mere steps from the Vancouver Art Gallery, Gastown, the Convention Centre, shopping on Robson Street, and the Stanley Park Sea Wall.
Ninety-four Trip Advisors give Coast Coal Harbour Hotel an average of 4.5 owl eyes, and fifty-four Expedia.com users give it a 4.6-average rating out of five. Six Yelpers give the hotel a 4.5-star average.
