Le Soleil Hotel in Vancouver


Hotel Le Soleil in Vancouver, B.C.

When I walked into the lobby I was immediately impressed by the decor, which follows into the rooms. Rich red, gold and black fabrics with a fire burning in the fireplace in the lobby and a friendly face waiting at the front desk to check us in.

We had paid slightly more for a Corner One Bedroom and appreciated the bonuses of that. We were in Room #808 on the 8th Floor Southwest corner. There were floor-to-ceiling windows on the west and south walls of the living room, a full sofa, large arm chair, entertainment center with a TV, fax, phone books, a desk with a chair, and two end tables with lamps on each.

On the desk was a large black binder that provided stationery and information about the hotel. There were also 6 books and magazines provided. Below is the list of books and magazines.

WHERE - A small pocket-guide that includes information about shopping, dining, entertainment of Vancouver and maps.

THE ESSTENTIAL VANCOUVER - A hotel magazine with articles about major attractions and lots of advertising about places to shop in Vancouver.

99 NORTH - A recreation guide.

GUEST LIFE VANCOUVER - A hotel magazine with articles about Vancouver and many ads for shopping in the city.

THE CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE TO THE WORLD'S BEST RESORTS & GREAT HOTELS - It's the 2001 collection and Hotel Le Soliel is on the cover. Inside it has information about the hotel and other hotels in the world.

NUVO - This is a magazine about style, celebrity and culture.

Plus, on the desk there are two sheets of paper from the Concierge of the Hotel Le Soliel. These sheets of paper are "Concierge Calendar of Events" for the week during which your are staying at the hotel and a "Movie Schedule" for the cinemas in downtown Vancouver.

The bathroom is inbetween the living room and bedroom, across from the mini-bar and closet area. Here there is a coffee maker, kettle, lots of glasses and inside the closet you'll find 2 terry-cloth bathrobes, an iron, ironing board, 2 extra pillows and a few hangers. The space for clothes is ample, however there were only 5 hangers provided, so I suggest bringing your own! Also provided is a folding luggage holder.


The bathroom features a large window that opens with a curtain for privacy, a granite countertop around the sink, marble floor and tiles, and large bathtub/shower combination. Aveda products are supplied and replenished daily. Which includes shampoo, conditioner, facial soap and body lotion. There is one drawer which holds a hair-dryer, extra toilet paper and extra kleenex.

The bedroom features a king-size bed, two tables, an end table and bedside entertainment centre with TV, two drawers (for clothes), alarm clock, and telephone. There is a separate thermostat in the bedroom and the living room for temperature control. There are beatuiful curtains are in all the rooms and striped wallpaper. I think the room is well layed out and would highly recommend this hotel!
