Vancouver and the Salish Sea
The Listel hotel is in the heart of Downton Vancouver, making it a prime bae from which to explore this wonderful city. The hotel stands out from other in the area regarding its two main focuses: the arts and the environment. Having been dubbed by art critic as ‘Vancouver’s most art-full hotel’ and a ‘cultural tourists dream’, the owners’ emphasis upon showcasing local artistic talent is clear to see. There are stunning pieces throughout the hotel, and room classifications are organised by their artistic themes. Secondly, the hotel has received the five green keys rating – the highest eco rating for any Vancouver boutique property from The Hotel Association of Canada. Its eco-initiative – Environment Matters – includes solar panels, a state of the art heat capture program, water reduction measures and the impressive fact that the hotel has been 100% zero waste since 2011.
As well as its loyalties to local culture and the environment, the Listel is also committed to offering guests an interesting, comfortable and pleasurable place to stay. Guest rooms are all comfortable furnished and equipped with complete modern amenities. Rooming categories include second floor modern art floor rooms; museum floor rooms; gallery floor rooms; artist series suites and the British Columbia suite. The comfortable rooms all feature art work from both Canadian and international artists, and are themed by floor, offering a stylish and boutique atmosphere. There are also two fantastic on-site dining locations – Forage and Timber, although the hotel’s prime location means guests are within walking distance of many of Vancouver’s culinary attractions.
