Romantic Vancouver Hotels

by Grace Williams

Plan a romantic Canadian vacation to Vancouver, British Columbia. You and your loved on can take a trolley ride through the heart of the city with the Vancouver Trolley Company, or stop off at Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre forest park with a six--and-a-half mile waterfront seawall path for a romantic stroll. The park also offers horse-drawn carriage rides. Have nightcaps at Lift, a bar with views of the water and mountains. During your stay, enjoy a gourmet dinner at local establishments such as C, the Salt Tasting Room or Vij's.

Hotel Le Soleil

The Hotel Le Soleil offers you the chance to have a European vacation without a trip to Europe. Each suite is decorated with artwork and furnishings in crimson and golds. The marble bathrooms include spa-quality bath products. The large beds include hypoallergenic sheets and down feather comforters and pillows. Upgrade to the hotel's "Romance Package" and receive a bottle of sparkling wine, chocolate-covered strawberries, turndown service including rose petals, a later checkout time and gourmet breakfasts. Or get the "Chocolate Affair" package, which includes a bottle of wine, chocolate fondue delivered to your room and edible chocolate body paint.

Wedgewood Hotel

The Wedgewood Hotel offers suites and executive-style rooms for couples on vacation. Check in with the "Body & Soul" package and receive a half bottle of wine, a $250 credit to the on-site luxury spa and breakfast at the hotel's European-style breakfast buffet. Or select the "Special Occasion" package and get breakfast and dinner, the latter served at the nearby gourmet Bacchus Restaurant.

Granville Island Hotel

The Granville Island Hotel, located on scenic Granville Island facing downtown Vancouver, offers luxury suites and waterfront views. The "Romantic Interlude" package includes a rose, chocolates, a bottle of wine and breakfast at the on-site Dockside Restaurant. For those wanting to splurge, rent out the hotel's penthouse. The 1,000-square-foot suite features floor to ceiling windows, a wraparound balcony, a Jacuzzi tub and a shower lit by skylight.
