The Douglas, Autograph Collection Hotel

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel

Uniting Vancouver’s urban dynamism with British Columbia’s ‘outdoors’ spirit, this boutique hotel was inspired by the Douglas firs that swept along False Creek, where the hotel now lies. In fact, they’ve even installed a replica 25 foot fir to greet you on arrival. There’s nothing artificial about the 200 native pines and 15,000 local plants in its exquisite rooftop park though – six stories up, it’s the pièce de résistance for Parq Vancouver, a unique dining, entertainment, and hotel complex that provides the backdrop for The Douglas and its elegant yet environmentally conscious rooms. As part of Parq Vancouver, you get the key to all its attractions, including the stunning Spa by JW, a huge casino with around 600 slots and 75 tables, a fitness centre, and eight restaurants and lounges, including rooftop hangouts The Victor and D/6 Bar & Lounge.

Myself and my friend went to D6 to try the food drinks there since we really was interested in the interior of the hotel and the bar. As soon as we walked in we felt so confused by the bartender who looked at us but ignored to continue doing what he was doing. So we got ourself a seat and waited for menu to come or to be recognized by someone.… Read more
Myself and my friend went to D6 to try the food drinks there since we really was interested in the interior of the hotel and the bar. As soon as we walked in we felt so confused by the bartender who looked at us but ignored to continue doing what he was doing. So we got ourself a seat and waited for menu to come or to be recognized by someone. There was another lady (bleached grayish hair) server who looked at us with no words and turn around to her station. I was actually a little bit shocked by her total ignorance, and we decided to leave. Right before we leave after the awkward waiting, the lady came over to us and said 'can i get you some drink?' straight away in a mono tone. We told her that actually we are going to go try somewhere else, and she says 'yeah no worries'. Totally killed our easter dining out vibes, and shocked at how some people can be such unprofessional at what they do. We visited on april 21st around 5pm. Terrible experience. Read less

stayed from the 3rd to the 11th of February 2019. Superb view from the room. the hotel is close to the water front and hence morning and evening walks were possible. Quite a few restaurants close by as well as the main city center. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Amenities were quite adequate.

Last night I celebrated my birthday with close friends and family. We wanted a special evening because we go out so rarely. We had two blonde servers who were beautiful, attentive and polite. It was a slower night but we still enjoyed our time. We were a little shocked when a taller leaner manager came over and we could over hear him use quite the tone with them and use curse words while trying to explain himself.. and then shortly after we saw him drinking with who looked like friends in the middle of the establishment - was not his best professional moment.

the staff is super nice here (maybe because *canada*) but they were much warmer than high-end american hotels. the douglass is a work of art, and the rooms are incredible. the lighting, the waterfall showerhead, the fancy finishes and the views! i'd definitely come back and stay again.
