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.

The room was a great balance of warm British Columbia with modern industrial touches. I especially liked the Douglas tree that was cut up and placed in a glass cube as the reception desk.

The room was a great balance of warm British Columbia with modern industrial touches. I especially liked the Douglas tree that was cut up and placed in a glass cube as the reception desk. Very quiet rooms, and intimate even though it is part of a large complex (it is shared with the JW Marriott and the casino). Douglas guests with platinum elite status benefits or higher had the ability to use the JW Marriott lounge for breakfast. Unfortunately you can tend to get a little lost wandering through the convention space to find the lounge on the other end of the complex. Also as the JW has more rooms, you can find your self hunting for space in the lounge during peak activity. Overall I would highly recommend the hotel and plan on staying here again. Read less

We’d made reservations far in advance, but were a bit worried when our cab driver said he had never heard of it!! The Douglas is relatively new and adjacent to the JW Marriott. Lovely rooms, HUGE bathroom and views - and exceptional staff! Well positioned to walk Vancouver. We will stay again!

The design is top of the bill, the staff super friendly yet the fact that it tok an hour to get online and our included breakfast turned out to be a hard to get, pricy and served in the room (since the hotel has no restaurant) made us feel less welcome. Especially since neither the internet access nor the breakfast arrangement were explained when checking in and the room has no table to actually have breakfast. Furthermore one might expect some extra's (turn down service, body lotion etc.) at this price range. Read less
