New Hotel Opens in Vancouver

The first modern hotel in Vancouver’s emerging Waterfront neighborhood opens its doors to guests

AC Hotel Vancouver Waterfront, the first modern hotel in Vancouver’s emerging Waterfront neighborhood, opens its doors to guests, offering a unique combination of quality, timeless European design and comfort. The new hotel, an AC Hotel by Marriott property, is operated by Vesta Hospitality, a fully integrated hotel development and hospitality management company based in Vancouver.

AC Hotel Vancouver Waterfront is ideally positioned between Mount St. Helens, the Columbia River Gorge and the Pacific Coast, while also offering a wealth of cultural and recreational experiences unique to Vancouver and the fast-growing Waterfront area. The hotel is the first completed project in the Port of Vancouver’s Terminal 1 development, which will also include office and retail space, public art, outdoor gathering areas, walking trails and public market.

“We are beyond excited to be part of this vibrant new Waterfront community, which is rapidly becoming the region’s next must-visit lodging and dining destination,” said David Lenke, AC Hotel Vancouver Waterfront general manager. “We aim to provide a sustainable and stylish way for both business and leisure travelers to immerse themselves in the energy of Vancouver.”

Located at the corner of Daniels Street and Columbia Way, the seven-story property offers 150 thoughtfully designed and well-appointed guest rooms — including three suites — each of which features the latest technology, a flexible workspace, free Wi-Fi and a 55-inch smart TV.

Destination dining includes the AC Kitchen, which serves a daily European-style breakfast with freshly baked croissants, sliced meats and cheeses, and signature egg dishes, and the AC Lounge, where locally brewed beers and handcrafted cocktails pair well with chef-created large and small plates. Floor-to-ceiling windows and easy outdoor access emphasize the property’s proximity to the Columbia River, bringing the neighborhood inside and creating an open and welcoming environment where locals and visitors alike can unwind and enjoy a meal.

The design-led hotel also offers seven stunning meeting rooms with 11,500 square feet of flexible meeting space. Floor-to-ceiling windows and modern decor are complemented by integrated technologies to maximize productivity. In keeping with the AC Hotels ethos, all spaces are carefully curated to provide everything guests need while eliminating unnecessary distractions.

Further elevating the guest experience, Vancouver Wellness Studio is currently developing an on-site spa and wellness center set to open in early fall. The second location for the Vancouver-based company, the Vancouver Wellness Studio at the AC Hotel Vancouver Waterfront will be a space for sensory experiences that bring signature moments of thoughtfulness. A full spectrum of wellness offerings is planned, including infrared sauna therapy, massage therapy, esthetic treatments like facials and waxing, acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling, naturopathic medicine, cosmetic PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy and an IV Lounge featuring IV nutrient therapy. The studio will provide exclusive access for hotel guests and staff, with private membership options for Waterfront residents, community members and surrounding businesses.

Other hotel amenities include ample on-site parking and a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and strength-training equipment.

The LEED-certified hotel was designed by the architectural design team of DLR Group, which has designed more than 20 AC Hotels worldwide. Robertson & Olson Construction served as the general contractor.
