Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Wedgewood is a distinctly different boutique hotel. The only Relais & Châteaux property in the city, the Wedgewood stands out with its top hat–wearing doorman, jewel box–like lobby with fireplace, and mirrored ceilings. Independently owned and family-run, the character of its owners shines through with hand-picked scenes of rural English idylls and hunting prints hanging on the walls. With full balconies for nearly every guest room (thanks to its previous life as an apartment building), the Wedgewood also boasts larger-than-average rooms, each decorated slightly differently. Warm, peppery-red and rust shades contrast with delicate eggshell-blue and jade accents. Guests have access to valet parking and babysitting services, as well as complimentary amenities, including a daily newspaper, fresh cookies at turndown, free Wi-Fi, bathrobes, and an in-room Nespresso machine.
