Vancouver, the greenest city in Canada is an attractive place to visit any time of the year. There is something exciting for every age group and any interest - hockey nights, amazing dining, concerts, theater, art exhibitions, shopping, craft beer pubs.
There is a brand new hotel just opened it's doors to public - Seaside Hotel, by Executive Hotel group. It is located at old shipyards area, next to ocean harbor. What is great about this location- you can take a 10 min sea bus ride to Downtown Vancouver! Visit Downtown and get back to North Vancouver- no driving required.
The hotel itself is featuring well-designed rooms with quality finishing. The carpets are soft plush (they still smell new), beds are super comfortable, pillows are made for good-night sleep.
Each room has two cotton bath robes, 2 pairs of slippers, as hotel offers spa services to it's guests. There is a modern coffee machine with Illy coffee brand capsules and a pay for minibar containing chocolate chip cookie, potato chips, soft drinks.
The walk-in shower with rain-head and marble tile floors looks stunning! The toiletries are from French brand L'occitane. Every detail in the interior design reminds you about seaside and soothes all senses.
The room also has large flat screen TV, desk and a comfy chair.
Hotel serves tasty and reasonable priced breakfast in a tastefully furnished restaurant.
There is an ice-rink just outside the hotel for winter skating, honey products store, Caffe Artigiano (they make most delicious London Fog and Coffee Latte), Pier 7 Restaurant, Tap&Barrel Shipyards eatery/brewery, Lonsdale Quay Market.
Lonsdale Quay Market features various shops that sell food and drinks. You are welcome to try anything fancy! Very tasty soups from Soup Masters, pickles, crepes, breads, baking, fresh produce. So worth the visit!
With Christmas being only a month away, it is time to do some Christmas shopping.
Since most of us live modest lives, spending has to be conservative and presents better be useful. Hopefully I found something interesting for everyone.
