St. Regis Vancouver Re-Opens Dec. 1st at $103 a Night

This week we saw one of the cheapest Ritz-Carlton rates in New Orleans for $100 a night and now we are witnessing one of the lowest St. Regis Hotel rates at $134CAD a night which is roughly $103USD. However, there is a catch--this isn't actually a Starwood-branded St. Regis Hotel. Nevertheless, a newly renovated hotel in this Canadian city is still a pretty good deal for a $100 is a deal.
The St. Regis Vancouver has just completed an $11 million renovation which has brought all of its 65 rooms and suite into the 21st century.
Led by Vancouver design icon Elaine Thorsell, the visionary behind masterpieces like Toronto's Ki and Vancouver's Gotham and Shore Club, the renovations have added a sleek, modern lustre to this authentic Vancouver heritage site. Thorsell's aesthetic is distinctive and sophisticated, and in reshaping the St. Regis she has blended cool neutral colours with dark wood to create a living environment which perfectly balances work and rest needs.
All rooms will have Plug & Play media technology, 32" LCD TVs and Acca Kappa toiletries. And the hotel will also feature complimentary wireless internet. It's aboot time!
NBA fans will also get a kick out of this hotel as the St. Regis has partnered with the Steve Nash Health Club which gives guests access to the 38,500 square feet of facilities, so you can pretend you are Steve Nash for a day.
The hotel will officially re-open on December 1st and unlike some hotels, they are mindful of the crappy economy offering rooms for the special rate of $134CAD a night. Again, this is the kind of deal where we want to clear our schedule just to take advantage of the cheap rates.
PS. We are loving the hockey game on the tube in the pic above.
