It’s Official: Twisty Trump Tower Hotel Confirmed for Vancouver
Back in February we told you that rumors were swirling in cyberspace that a Trump Hotel & Tower might be coming to Vancouver. Well, stop the swirling because we can confirm that Mr. Trump is coming to Canada’s biggest west coast city.
The Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver is expected to open in summer 2016. Here are some of the tantalizing deets:
• 147 guest rooms, 218 residences
• Vancouver’s first pool bar nightclub (details on what this is all about are scarce right now)
• A champagne lounge
• A signature restaurant
• Canada’s first Mar-a-Lago Spa by Ivanka Trump, a new line of boutique spas
• Trump Attaché – a dedicated department that offers guests personalized attention with no service off limits (we can only imagine!)

The $360 million hotel is being designed by acclaimed Canadian architect, Arthur Erickson, whose twisty tower design for the 63-storey behemoth maximizes the views in every suite, with no two views being exactly alike.
Award-winning BOX Interior Design has been tasked with designing the hotel’s interior, and they say that the design will “play on the local qualities of urban Vancouver as a true gateway between East and West. Ideas of illumination and reflection, which riff on Vancouver’s identity as a city of glass, will be used to further the sensory experience of the hotel.”
Interior renderings of the hotel are being worked on even as you read this, so we'll unveil them to you soon.
