Listel Hotel

1300 Robson St.
Vancouver , British Columbia , Canada
(604) 684-8461

This 130-room gem of a hotel set on trendy Robson Street doubles as an art gallery. Guests find themselves among remarkable modern sculptures the minute they enter the lobby—including the signature Boaz Vaadia sculpture of a seated person at the entrance, on loan from the local Buschlen Mowatt Gallery. The art theme continues through two “gallery” floors, where each room features unique eclectic furnishings like retro coffee tables and padded headboards. The Listel also has two “museum” floors, where hallways are decorated with cultural treasures including a large Hamatsa mask on loan from the Museum of Anthropology; guest rooms showcase Native-themed pottery and paintings (available for purchase) and contemporary furnishings in north coast cedar and hemlock woods.

Insider Tip: The Listel is the official hotel of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival; book early for this and other event tie-ins such as the Vancouver International Film Festival and exhibits at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Room to Book: Pick your theme: floors 3 and 6 are “museum,” floors 4 and 5 are “gallery,” and floor 2 has pleasant hotel rooms…yet to be themed.
