Contemporary Hotel with Stunning Views near Vancouver’s Waterfront
Set on the western coast of British Columbia, Vancouver's geographical backdrop is astounding—snowcapped mountains edge dense forests, tree-lined waterways pour into the Pacific Ocean, and elongated islets create a dramatic shoreline. One of the best places to enjoy this natural beauty is along the city’s waterfront, lined with harbors, walking trails, and public parks. Thanks to the city’s temperate ocean climate, the waterfront can be enjoyed year-round. The Coast Coal Harbour Hotel is located just south of here, and it's within walking distance of the art galleries, restaurants, and museums downtown.
Coast Coal Harbour Hotel has a fresh, contemporary vibe. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek furnishings fill the interior, and a zero-waste initiative has been implemented throughout the hotel. At Prestons, the hotel’s chic restaurant and lounge, chefs churn out contemporary Mediterranean-Asian dishes such as ginger-marinated wild salmon and mozzarella di buffalo and prosciutto salad. A communal plank table encourages laid-back socializing, and high-backed banquette seating provides more privacy. In the morning, choose from “hearty,” “healthy,” and “happy” breakfast options.
Guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the waterfront or the city center. A muted color palette reflects the natural mountain scenery, and each room houses a platform bed and textured chairs. You can also enjoy the elements at the hotel’s heated outdoor pool or relax with a visit to the onsite nail salon and spa.
Vancouver, British Columbia: Bustling Metropolis near Skiing Wonderland
Vancouver enjoys relatively mild winters; its coastal climate allows very little snowfall to stick to the ground. As a result, the historic Gastown neighborhood, with its cobblestone pedestrian mall near the waterfront, remains lively throughout the season. Once a cluster of saloons, this bustling area located less than a mile from the hotel is now full of clothing boutiques, coffee shops, and nightclubs, as well as an iconic steam-powered grandfather clock that whistles every quarter hour.
Though numerous ski resorts stand just outside the city limits, Whistler, about two hours north of Vancouver, is widely renowned for its skiing—Whistler Blackcomb even played host to the alpine-skiing events in the 2010 Winter Games. Powdery snow blankets the mountain by late November, attracting skiers and boarders who pack its slopes every winter, and the ski season lasts about six months. You can shuttle back and forth between the two mountains on the Peak 2 Peak gondola, the highest and longest unsupported cable-car span in the world. It’s surrounded by 360-degree views of ancient glaciers, dense evergreen forests, and mountain goats peddling time-shares.
