Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special someone or your BFF—Parq Vancouver has something for everyone.

Step inside one of the city’s most unique boutique hotels with 188 elegant rooms—all offering lush linens, specialty bath amenities and incredible views. The space is the best of both worlds with the perfect blend of city and nature. It has been designed with the modern traveler in mind with a variety of suites that combine modern touches with some more industrial finishes and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Take in the nature-focused design elements that pay homage to all things British Columbia. Even the name itself is a nod to the original Douglas fir that laid Vancouver’s foundation. You’ll see elements of this throughout the hotel, including a 30-foot replica Douglas fir tree in the lobby. What better way to spend a staycation than admiring all the natural beauty that is in your own backyard? Within each new space, you’ll find hints of this with wallpaper that looks like tree bark and original Indigenous art pieces. There’s also a rooftop park on the sixth floor, with over 200 native pines and 15,000 local floras.

Order breakfast in bed and you may never want to leave your room. And what is a getaway without your four-legged BFF? The hotel is pet friendly so your entire family can enjoy a luxurious night away together. Prices start at $379 per night.

Treat yourself to a spa treatment followed by high tea

Treat yourself to the R&R you deserve with a couples massage. Or if you’re looking for a Galentine’s Day activity—nothing beats a spa day followed by a high tea service in your own private room overlooking the city. After a relaxing afternoon, head over to The Glamoury to get your hair and makeup done before heading out for the night.
