VANCOUVER — Executive Hotels and Resorts has opened Seaside in North Vancouver. The boutique luxury waterfront hotel is located in The Shipyards District and offers 71 deluxe rooms and spacious suites with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and North Shore mountains.
“As the ultimate seaside retreat for travellers and locals alike, Seaside brings the sophistication and excitement of downtown Vancouver into the relaxed, natural beauty and lifestyle of North Vancouver to offer an authentically local hotel experience,” says Salim Sayani, CEO of Executive Hotels and Resorts. “We want guests to feel like they’re visiting the comfortable and effortlessly cool vacation home of an old friend — feeling rejuvenated and well cared for at the end of their stay.”
Architecture firm ZGF worked in collaboration with Executive’s in-house design team to bring the spirit of the outside indoors, building upon the revival of the Wallace Shipyards developed by Dialog.
Seaside’s design philosophy was inspired by the spirit of the North Shore’s Seaside vista. Each room echoes the natural world, showcasing a reclaimed-wood focus wall, marble bathrooms with chrome finishes, a modern pedestal bed lit from below and large windows. The outer hallways are lined with curated wall murals, natural wood portals and bespoke flooring.
Seaside Provisions, the onsite restaurant, blurs the lines between restaurant, bar and lounge to create a holistic dining experience in a style-infused place referred to as the Living Room. The menu features locally sourced coastal tapas and bespoke cocktails. Though not yet open, the restaurant is expected to open in the near future.
The Waterfront Spa, opening October, will showcase the latest equipment and extensive training in the most current methods, practice, and techniques in personal care, building care regimens from a wide selection of offers that provide guests with customized experiences each visit.
The Wallace, the adjacent event space, also provides a location for functions, parties or large-scale meetings with a capacity of up to 200 standing guests.
