This year’s holiday offerings at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver include:
See: Festival of Trees Celebration
November 25, 2016 to January 2, 2017
The 30th Annual Festival of Trees kicks off Vancouver’s holiday season. Transforming the Hotel’s first and second-floor lobbies into a winter wonderland, this community favourite showcases Christmas trees creatively decorated by various sponsors to raise awareness and funds for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Guests are encouraged to vote by donation for their favourite tree on display in the Hotel and adjoining Pacific Centre.
Stay: Fall into Winter
Available through April 30, 2017
As autumn fades and the festive season arrives, the Fall into Winter accommodation offer at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver provides guests with savings that both Santa and Scrooge would approve. Available through April 30, 2017, guests who stay two or more nights will receive 20 percent off the daily room rate. This special winter offer is an ideal way to spend extra time exploring the city. Guests can take advantage of Canada’s favourable exchange rate and the Hotel’s convenient location in the heart of downtown Vancouver and leisurely take in a day of holiday shopping before treating themselves to dinner and a festive cocktail at YEW seafood + bar. Rates for this offer are based on the best available room rate for the dates chosen.
Play: Kids in the City Package
Available December 19, 2016 to January 2, 2017
The Hotel’s Kids in the City package takes the stress out of finding a hotel that fits the whole family. The package provides particular value during the holiday season when reserving one guest room at full price and access to a second guest room at 50 percent off, making space for everyone to stretch out and relax. Specially designed for guests aged five to 12 years, kids receive a treat upon arrival as well as a seasonal, in-room snack. Kids are invited to slip into their cosy, child-sized robes and head down to the Hotel’s pool or enjoy dedicated play areas for games, crafts, music, story time, cookie decorating and more. Keeping in the spirit of the holiday season, families can grab some popcorn and curl up together to watch holiday-themed movies on the weekends.
Eat and Drink: YEW seafood + bar Serves up the Season
YEW seafood + bar is set to celebrate the holidays with creative cocktails and new menus. Whether guests are sharing the season with family, friends or colleagues, now is the time to plan holiday parties and dinners.
