design with luxury in mind
fashion lives in Vancouver's
Yaletown District in the form of a luxury hotel. Opus Hotel Vancouver prides itself on having five different décor schemes
to accommodate the many personalities who occupy its 96
guest rooms and suites. The firm that designed the building,
Architectura, envisioned five distinct characters for
the hotel and created each room design to suit these fictional

Thriving Vancouver offers more than enough to keep a visitor occupied, but Opus competes for attention with a fitness room, 24-hour room service, CDs and CD player available through guest services, and most significantly, One Hundred Days restaurant, which features the talent of local graffiti artist Vince Dumoulin.

a given that a hotel like this one, which oozes style
from every pore, will attract a high-end clientele. If
you can put up with celebrities and corporate moguls,
comfort can be found in this hotel. If you relish the
company of such types, you will find much more than just
comfort in the Opus experience.
