Hotel Georgia reopens as Rosewood property

18 Jul 2011 by BusinessTraveller

Vancouver’s famous Hotel Georgia has reopened its doors as a Rosewood property following an extensive restoration project.

Originally opened in 1927, the iconic hotel has welcomed guests including Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, The Beatles and Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

The property was previously branded under IHG’s Crowne Plaza offering, before being closed for refurbishments.

Now known as the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, the property has been “lovingly restored”, with features including two penthouse suites, 10,000 square feet of events space including the Spanish Ballroom, a Rosewood Spa, “breathtaking crystal chandeliers” and one of the country’s largest private collections of Canadian art.

An adjacent 48-floor tower is set to open next year, housing residences with access to amenities at the hotel.

Hong Kong-based New World Hospitality recently agreed to purchase the Rosewood Hotels and Resorts brand for US$229.5 million – for more information click here.
