Hotels in British Columbia

Just a short stroll away from Vancouver’s famed wilderness-within-the-city, Stanley Park, this mid-priced, all-suite hotel in the gay village is also within walking distance of the downtown shopping and business districts.

A 22-acre resort situated on Rathtrevor Beach (which extends north into a provincial park), Tigh-Na-Mara's name means "house by the sea" in Gaelic. The 192 rooms, suites, and cabins are all log constructions with wireless Internet; many also have fireplaces and waterfront views.

Sitting right atop Canada Place, the Pan Pacific’s 504 rooms are just an elevator ride away from docked cruise ships and have the best waterfront views of any Downtown hotel.

Sitting on the edge of the Coal Harbour neighborhood and Vancouver's financial district, the Loden Hotel is a distinctly modern-chic entity amid the area's mountains and waterways.

The Setting: At Nimmo Bay Resort, two idyllic red cedar tubs, heated to 104 degrees, are secreted away in a wooded inlet, 200 miles north of Vancouver.

Kicking Horse Resort is perfect for advanced skiers, with 70 trails and two spacious Eagle’s Eye suites overlooking five national parks.

A six-bedroom, 6,500- square-foot villa in British Columbia, complete with outdoor infinity pool, rock hot tub, and adjoining backyard spa that includes a sauna and gym equipment.

Metrosexual to the max—starting with the model-hot doormen—the Opus packs in guests who want to sample the city’s trendiest neighborhood.

The Wickaninnish Inn, set on a remote, pine forest–ringed promontory, is best enjoyed during fierce weather—the more ferocious, the better. In the 75 rooms, duvet-covered beds and deep soaking tubs sit beside ample windows that look out on the churning ocean and rain-lashed coast.

Built in preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel towers a lofty 48 floors above the Burrard Inlet waterfront, with panoramic views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park, and Coal Harbour.
