Paradox Hotel Vancouver has opened in downtown Vancouver. The 147 room hotel is the flagship location for Paradox Hotel Group, a global hotel and hospitality brand with locations worldwide.
The hotel is a rebranding of the former Trump International Hotel & Tower at 1161 West Georgia street and features seven event venues totalling 15,000 sq.ft.; a 3,982 sq.ft. wrap-around terrace; indoor pool and walk-out whirlpool; a fitness centre and 3,000 sq.ft. spa facility.
“We have always wanted to consolidate our hotels, and the time to embark on this meaningful journey is right now. Our global teams possess decades of experience and an established network of industry partners, having developed and operated numerous high-profile hotels worldwide,” said Joo Kim Tiah, CEO of Kuala Lumpur-based TA Global Berhad and Vancouver-based Holborn Group. “We strongly believe that a distinct identity rooted in local culture is crucial for a successful hotel group.”
The hotel is described to be a showcase of a laid-back contemporary design with an upscale ambiance. It will be a global destination for travellers and locals seeking a unique experience, offering a broader spectrum of services and amenities.
“We wanted to create a hotel concept that embodied the paradoxical spirit of Vancouver, where the brand was created; a city in which world-class luxury and laid-back lifestyles go hand-in-hand,” says Paradox’s head of brand experience Lorraine Simonds. “Paradox Hotel Vancouver is one of the most stunning luxury buildings in the city, but it’s about more than luxurious travel accommodations. Our vision for the hotel is to create interactive social spaces that facilitate authentic relationships between our guests, the city and its people.”
The hotel will be home to two brand new hotel-centric F&B and nightclub concepts. The highly anticipated Karma Lounge and Mansion Nightclub will open in late spring 2022, bringing the best of Vancouver’s nightlife to the hotel’s upper lobby and multi-level nightclub venues.
