V6B 1Y6 Travel Guide
In anticipation of the St. Regis Hotel Vancouver’s 100th Anniversary next March 15th, they’re starting the celebrations off early with one hell of a sale. Rooms will go for just $100 per night.
Now, we had to do a double take, because like you, we thought this was a new Starwood brand hotel (we've been through this before, so we had to double check). It's not. But, it's a good rate, all the same, if you're doing the Canadian winter wonderland thing.
There are just 1000 rooms available for this awesome rate and the sale starts TOMORROW for bookings from December through April. That means, don't slouch, we predict these rooms will go fast.
The prepaid vouchers for this offer will be sold through the website on December 1st and can be redeemed for any night up until April 30th, 2013. Simply call or email the hotel to make the reservation. Buy two vouchers for $200 and you’re staying in a St. Regis Suite ( though that particular deal is subject to availability, non-refundable, and not available Dec 31, Jan 30-Feb 9, or Apr 3-5 ).
A St. Regis for around $200* a night? Yes, it's possible—in Canada! Of course, that room rate should be the first thing to tip you off that the St. Regis Vancouver is not actually a St. Regis of the Starwood variety.
As we found on a recent trip north, the St. Regis Vancouver is a charming boutique hotel with historic bones, a fantastic downtown location perfect for business travelers and tourists alike--and a ton of added extras that we bet you won't find at your local posh version of a St. Regis.

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.
