Whilst sitting at dinner one evening at the Wedgewood, my husband said it best…..” This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in. It is like staying with family!” This was so true. I can’t say enough about the staff at the Wedgewood. Simply stated, they are good folks. The rooms are elegant, yet so comfortable. This will be our home away from home when we are in Vancouver…

I always enjoy my stay at the Wedgewood hotel. The staff are very friendly and try to make our visit to Vancouver more enjoyable.
The hotel is located in the heart of Vancouver close to great restaurants and shopping.

The staff and accommodations at the Wedgewood are excellent. Top notch service, facilities and restaurant. The food was outstanding. The location is fantastic – walking distance to everything. I highly recommend this hotel

had a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel. very comfortable rooms and friendly staff. my room was nice and clean and they added a personal touch to every guest with a letter and a treat every evening!

Shawn Murray was outstanding as a member of your hospitality staff. He should be made manager. He was capable, personable and professional. One major complaint was you are charging us $29.00 for one glass of orange juice and two cups of coffee. Your room service did this to us twice. How was this possible if the American Breakfast was only $30.00.?

From the moment we arrived, we were truly welcomed by the staff. from the smiling top-hat Kirby, to the pleasant room staff and front desk personnel. Our breakfast was also enjoyable with local offerings. Very tasty. Stopped in the bar in the evening to enjoy a “nightcap” where service was super.

The Wedgewood is on a triple A location with the most service minded staff I’ve ever seen in Vancouver; they’re working in a classic gem of a hotel with seriously comfortable spacious rooms and ‘heavenly’ beds.
Probably not such a well known place, outside Vancouver, (I only discovered it after 15 years of coming to Vancouver) but this will be ‘my place’ from now on.
The hotel is still strangely peaceful despite being dead centre in Vancouver, great!

Wedgewood Hotel & Spa as the #1 Top City Hotel in Canada

Travel + Leisure’s 2016 World Best Awards has named The Wedgewood Hotel & Spa as the #1 Top City Hotel in Canada.

This isn’t the first time the family-owned luxury boutique hotel in Downtown Vancouver has snagged a spot on the list—it placed fifth in last year’s awards.

“Although we have consistently been ranked as one of the top hotels in Canada, this is the first time we have been voted as number one!” said Elpie Marinakis-Jackson, Wedgewood Hotel’s co-owner and managing director, in a press statement. “It is a true honour and a privilege and we are absolutely thrilled to be ranked among the best in the world by Travel + Leisure.”

The prestigious awards are selected by the travel publication’s readers, with hotel rankings based on ratings in five categories: rooms/facilities, location, service, value, and food.

A handful of other Vancouver hotels made the list, including Rosewood Hotel Georgia ranking second place, Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver coming in at fifth, Fairmont Pacific Rim placing ninth, and Loden Hotel taking the tenth spot.

Lovely suite with fireplace in the separate living room but the most delightful part of the stay was our balcony with both dining and sitting areas and an incredible view of the city and beyond…well worth it! Staff were delightful and the location was perfect for our needs

We’ve been staying at the Wedgewood for almost 20 years now for both business and pleasure. There is a reason we keep coming back because the place is warm, welcoming, consistently good – and maybe most of all because of the staff continuity and the nice feeling of being recognised and greeted by name.

This time, however, it was not quite up to the usual standards. First, the staff at reception were not as experienced and familiar with the rooms as they usually are. When we were given our room number I asked (having a vague recollection of staying in the room previously) “Isn’t this the room next to the elevator that is kind of noisy in the morning when people start using the elevator?” The answer “No, it is well separated from the elevator – you won’t hear anything”. We got up to the room and – you guessed it, it was in fact that charmingly noisy room next to the lift that I remembered from years back, which I had asked many years ago be noted on our file as a room in which we preferred not to be placed.

The next minor hiccough – the greeting letter in the room welcomed us as “first-time visitors or returning guests”. This is a minor point, I know, but previously the Wedgewood CRM systems were good enough to recall who was a returning guest and the greeting letter was tailored accordingly. By the way, I also miss the “nice to have you back” chocolates for returning guests.

Taken together over two separate visits we made in March, it appeared to us that the level of staff experience at the hotel has dropped a bit; and combined with what we perceived to be a different way of managing/recalling historical guest data the net result is the feeling of familiarity and personalisation was not at the normal levels. Given that we select boutique hotels rather than big chain hotels, precisely for these reasons, these glitches were for us quite noticeable.

However, it is still a great place and it is still made great by the staff. It was great to be welcomed in front of the hotel at curbside by Kirby. Before we had even completed registration he had already started making reservations at our usual favourite Vancouver restaurant. The next morning it started the day off perfectly to be recognised and greeted in the breakfast room by Margaret. At the end of breakfast a dapper-looking gentleman came up and engaged us in conversation about the hotel. He listened intently to everything we had to say, and at first we thought he was another guest, but then he introduced himself as Glenn Eleiter, the hotel manager, and said he would be looking into our observations.

A rating of average may be a bit harsh, but seen against previous performance and the consistent high expectation levels the Wedgewood have themselves set for us, and other guests, it is probably not far off the mark.

A great stay as usual! Rooms are clean and quiet. Turn down service, bedtime cookies are the best. Kirby the doorman brings amazing curb appeal! Meals in Bacchus were tasty, only let down was a “newer” waiter who talked under his breath to his co-workers.,,definitely doesn’t have customer appeal. A great stay non-the-less and we will be back!

Second Review Wedgewood Hotel Vancouver
We always enjoy coming to the Wedgewood, it’s perfectly located downtown close to great restaurants and shopping. If you have business downtown, and want easy access to great food and downtown atmosphere or shows, it’s a great choice.

The hotel still as the feel of a small boutique hotel – personal and helpful service, intimate setting, clean, professional, yet not over the top or pretentious. Excellent location, restaurant, and staff was very helpful with reservation, price and making arrangements. The box of chocolates and cookies were a nice welcome touch. Thank you

We received a gift certificate for a night at the Wedgewood and from the moment we pulled up to the hotel, it was like we were VIP’s. From the doorman-valet, to the front desk, to the porter, the spa staff and the housekeepers…everyone was INCREDIBLY friendly, helpful and happy to be there. We had an amazing dinner at Baachus and our waiter, Joel, made the evening perfect.

We were slightly nervous about staying in a hotel with our 22 month old son but the staff at the Wedgewood were absolutely lovely. They made us feel really welcome and seemed genuinely happy to chat to our son, offering crayons and colouring sheets and babysitting services.

The room was very spacious and even had a little bar area, this was very convenient as this is where we put the cot so our son couldn’t see us while he tried to get to sleep. Once he was asleep we had some gorgeous room service, my bespoke request was dealt with wonderfully with no hassle at all. We couldn’t hear any other guests in our room at all so no noise issues internally although we could hear sirens in street below but it really didnt bother us at all, you expect a bit of noise when staying in a city.

Beautiful (although pricey) breakfast in the restaurant downstairs but so worth it. Restaurant manager was very accommodating for our son and the doorman was full of good advice for activities in the city and beyond. The hotel was also decorated beautifully for Christmas.

We only stayed for one night but we wished it had been longer, would definitely not hesitate to recommend this hotel to everyone.
