Vancouver, Canada

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, announces that Forbes Travel Guide has once again bestowed Five Stars, its highest designation, on Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. Worldwide, 30 Four Seasons hotels and resorts earned the coveted Five-Star designation in 2017, setting the record for the highest number of Five-Star awards given to a single brand in the history of the Forbes Travel Guide Ratings.

As one of only six Canadian hotels to achieve the coveted Five-Star Rating, the team at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver is honoured to stand among the best of the best. “We are incredibly honoured to have earned this accolade once again," says Martin Sinclair, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. “The award is a tremendous coup for the Hotel, demonstrating our consistency in service excellence. I am very proud of each and every member of our team as each individual contributes to achieve this level of exceptional and highly personalised service.”

As Vancouver’s most coveted accommodations, Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver offers travellers a modern residential-style setting with numerous thoughtful touches, elegantly wrapped in legendary Four Seasons service. Among its 372 spacious guest rooms and suites, several top-tiered suites are particularly popular and truly set the property apart in this cosmopolitan, active and forward-looking city.

  • Sleek, spacious and spectacular, the elegant Royal Suite is frequented by renowned celebrities, dignitaries and royalty from across the globe.  Located on the top floors of the Hotel, the two-storey floor-to-ceiling windows infuse the suite with bright sunlight and stunning city and North Shore mountain views.  Gracefully furnished with modern accents, the exclusive retreat is designed in a rich and vibrant palette of blues. Additional bedrooms can be connected to the suite for families or those travelling with staff. 
  • The largest suite at the Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver is the Prime Minister Suite, located on the top two floors with striking views of the city skyline, sparkling waters of English Bay, and historical building of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Make entertaining effortless with 24 hour Room Service and share pleasant conversations around a dining room table set for eight under an impressive crystal chandelier. Every aspect of this West Coast inspired one-of-a-kind suite has been designed to provide a sanctuary from the bustle of the city, with a majestic array of amenities that complement the hallmark Five-Star Four Seasons service.
  • Providing a sense of serene exclusivity, the highly sought-after Premier One-Bedroom Suites – there are just nine – occupy the 18th to 26th floors with panoramic view of the glittering city.  With 83 square metres (895 square feet), this spacious and functional suite is outfitted with a full dining table to host intimate meetings, family meals or romantic dinners. With its apartment-like layouts and amenities, these luxury suites feel far more like a home than a hotel.

The fully-customisable Four Seasons Bed lets guests choose their preferred firmness.  All Four Seasons guests enjoy twice-daily housekeeping, complimentary overnight shoeshine and newspapers, and same day laundry services.

Forbes Travel Guide rates properties in 42 countries throughout the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, with plans to add the Middle East and Africa for 2018. Star Ratings are awarded by a team of anonymous professional inspectors. In the words of Forbes Travel Guide, its inspectors “travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants and spas against up to 800 objective standards.” Star Ratings ultimately emphasise quality of service. Five-Star properties are defined as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.”

Forbes Travel Guide plans to formally bestow the ratings at a Five-Star Awards Ceremony and Banquet in New York City on March 1, 2017.
