Rosewood to reopen iconic Hotel Georgia

8 Feb 2011 by AndrewGough

The 84-year-old Hotel Georgia in Vancouver is to reopen following a full restoration by Rosewood Hotels, which now counts the iconic property among its Canadian portfolio.

The hotel in its new guise as a 155-room Rosewood property will open on May 7, exactly 84 years to the day that the hotel first opened in 1927.

The historic Rosewood Hotel Georgia, which lists Elvis Presley, Ginger Rogers and Frank Sinatra among its former guests, has been restored to its “1920’s grandeur” by interior design team Munge Leung.

The original 1920’s lobby clock and other original features around the reception area, ballroom and other public areas have been kept, however new facilities come in the form of 929sqm of meeting space, a spa gym and salt water pool.

Guestrooms and suites will be decorated in light blues, ivory and brown with “spa-inspired” bathrooms. Two penthouse suites – the Lord Stanley Suite and the Rosewood Suite – will both feature a private rooftop terrace, hot tub and fireplace.

The Hawksworth Restaurant will offer a contemporary Canadian menu with a “uniquely Vancouver-Asian twist”. Other bars and eateries include the underground Prohibition lounge, the 1927 lobby bar plus a fourth-floor patio where events and banquets can be held.
