VANCOUVER — Parq Vancouver — the city’s newest entertainment destination — has announced an opening date for late September.
Built to meet LEED Gold environmental standards, Parq Vancouver is the largest private development in British Columbia. The complex includes two world-class luxury hotels, an extensive culinary lineup, state-of-the-art gaming, convention space and unique outdoor space.
Marking an introduction to Western Canada and bridged by The Park and all of the resort’s amenities, Parq Vancouver features JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and the Douglas, an Autograph Collection Hotel.
With a lobby featuring a full-sized replica Douglas fir encased in glass, the Douglas represents a balanced dialogue of nature and city. The property joins the diverse portfolio of more than 100 Autograph Collection Hotels around the world that are independent and one-of-a-kind. Its 178 rooms and 10 suites — designed by Vincent Celano and created by Rob Wells — are located between the seventh and 17th floors and are designed for the experiential traveller.
Parq Vancouver’s luxury status is further elevated by the region’s first JW Marriott. Designed by Toronto-based Studio Munge and boasting 281 rooms and 48 suites located between the sixth and 25th floors — as well as Canada’s first Spa by JW — the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver delivers sophisticated design, intuitive service and thoughtfully crafted experiences.
Parq Vancouver’s more than 60,000 sq. ft. of fully accessible and flexible space comprises 13 ballrooms, boardrooms and meeting rooms, including the 15,604-sq.-ft. Parq Grand Ballroom — the largest hotel ballroom in the city.
The entertainment facility is scheduled to open on Sept. 29. A celebratory roll of the dice on the casino floor will mark the occasion at 11 p.m.
