There are very few places I recommend without any qualification or hesitation. This is one of them. Get a room on the 5th floor to have an amazing balcony!

We were excited to stay at this hotel after reading the reviews. L'Hermitage certainly did not disappoint. From the great customer service to the delicious breakfast, we haven't stayed in such a professional place since Hong Kong.
Nice hotels are relatively easy to come by these days, however. What blew this hotel out of the water was the reception received by our children. We were travelling with our two young boys, ages 2 and 4. Upon check-in, they were each personally greeted with a basket of stuffed animals and coloring books. The animals were each adorned with an embroidered maple leaf. As we are Canadians, this wasn't such a big deal to us, but imagine what a great keepsake for the international traveller? The boys loved their animals.
Breakfast the next morning was also delicious, and cappucinos were included! Again, service for the children was amazing. The waitress brought out a pristine highchair,(not a grimy one like we've often seen) and they were also each given to use a complete set of Winnie the Pooh place setting and cutlery. Our boys felt so special!
There were espresso machines in the room, the breakfast was delicious, the pool and jacuzzi were beautiful. Really, I have nothing to say against this lovely place. Can't wait to go back to Vancouver, this is definately my new favorite place!

Room Tip: 5th floor is close to breakfast room, fitness, and pool; and yet, it is not the slightest bit noisy

How nice it is to arrive in a never before visited country and find people like the staff at L’Hermitage. After a long flight a friendly greeting and good service goes a very long way. In all respects this hotel is everything the positive reviews suggest and more. It is beautifully decorated, the staff is friendly and helpful and the amenities are first class. The only possible downside is the CBD location which means you will not have an outlook or proximity to Vancouver’s greatest asset, the harbour. That said, everything else is on your doorstep including a raucous Italian restaurant which won our family competition to find the best Crème Brulee in USA and Canada so don’t miss the maple infused version they serve here. L’Hermitage is near some good shopping and all up a terrific place to stay.

Room Tip: Don't forget to check out the pool and L'Orangerie areas.

This beautiful "boutique" hotel has a dog mascot that will greet you in the lobby, and modern touches everywhere you look. We were very pleased with the service from all the staff, and they gave us a free upgrade on our arrival.
Most rooms have a compact fireplace that is completely silent but still completely romantic. The rooms were clean and contemporary, included generous kitchen amenities and were larger than their counterparts at much more expensive hotels.

L'Hermitage is a great value, and has the cool factor to get you some fantastic photos (and memories)

Room Tip: Make sure you get one with a fireplace. Try asking for an upgrade when you arrive (we got one unexp...

This is the best boutique/hotel experience I have ever had. Every staff member knows you by name, and they were all vitreous, knowledgeable and friendly, from the time you step though that boutique. An absolute must stay. All the reviews I read, were soo true and did not disappoint. I raved about it to my husband and he said, I'll see when I get there...well, you know who won that bet. Now, we are planning to go back next year and because of this boutique. Again, I will say, the service just makes every experience there wonderful. :)

This hotel will now be the standard in which I judge other hotels. Everything was perfect. The room was comfortable and clean with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a lap pool and hot tub. The bathroom is spectacular with a standalone shower and large soaking tub. The service is phenomenal, from the glass of wine in the lounge by the fireplace to the servers over breakfast. Then there was the breakfast itself. It was the perfect example of simple things done perfectly, slightly runny organic scrambled eggs, homemade granola and wild smoked salmon from British Columbia.
The location is prime for sightseeing and enjoying the city. It is a couple of blocks from the Metro and walking distance to Stanley Park and Granville Island (my favorite).
I can't wait till I go back to Vancouver and I know I will be booking a room at this hotel!
