VANCOUVER — A new addition to Vancouver’s luxury hotel landscape is opening next month. The AZUR Legacy Collection Hotel in the heart of downtown Vancouver is a stylish 104-room boutique property boasting an Art Deco design aesthetic.

AZUR Legacy Collection Hotel has a unique connection to the esteemed Executive Hotels group. Founded by Farida and Noordin Sayani, Executive Hotels has been a prominent name in Vancouver’s hotel industry for more than three decades. The soon-to-open AZUR stands as a unique independent project curated by Farida Sayani in collaboration with her daughter, Sofia. Spanning 13 floors, the property’s lavishly appointed guestrooms, penthouse suites, and elevated dining options offer locals and visitors alike a true respite from the hustle and bustle of the downtown core.

The property features a grand marble lobby entrance, plush carpeting, and floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the interior with natural light. Farida’s personal touches and signature design aesthetic are evident in every aspect of the hotel, from the exterior clad with imported stone and a brass entry door, to the bespoke finishes and hand-picked artworks sourced from local and international artists.

All 104 guestrooms are outfitted with luxe accents such as marble bathrooms, integrated wireless technology, heated floors, illuminated mirrors, soaker tubs and more. The hotel floorplan includes a pair of marquee penthouse-level suites — the Blue Diamond two-bedroom and Opal king suites — appointed with plush linens, gas fireplaces, and private patios with panoramic views.

The hotel offers two unique onsite dining options. Dahlia Restaurant, located in the lobby, provides a chic setting for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Guests can indulge in a modern menu showcasing diverse world cuisines while seated in the tasteful art-deco-style dining room or on the charming street-side patio. The Lavantine Rooftop Restaurant, Vancouver’s first and only custom-designed, garden-like rooftop restaurant, boasts panoramic views of downtown and the North Shore Mountains. The 14th-floor dining venue offers a relaxed, stylish ambiance and a menu that blends traditional ingredients and flavours from the Levant Region with a signature West-Coast touch. The adjacent Skybar provides another locale for guests to unwind and sip classic and contemporary cocktails while admiring stunning vistas of the cityscape below.

The menus at both Dahlia and Lavantine place a premium on showcasing the very best fresh, locally sourced ingredients from B.C.’s  farms, fields and ocean, while the bar programs spotlight imported and local B.C. craft beer, a comprehensive list of classic and contemporary cocktails, and stand-out wines from New- and Old-World regions, with a particular focus on varietals hailing from B.C.’s celebrated Okanagan Valley.

“We’re ready and prepared to welcome visitors and show them all the ways AZUR Legacy Collection Hotel will re-define the luxury boutique-hotel experience, not just here in Vancouver but in Western North America,” says managing director Farida Sayani. “From the views and the food to the decor and style, we’ve left no stone unturned in our desire to provide guests and visitors with unforgettable experiences while setting a new standard for excellence in hospitality.”
