New Westminster’s Most Intimate Luxury Hotel

From Canadascope, June 15, 2009

Sublime style meets divine comfort at Inn At The Quay, the first and only intimate luxe hotel on the charming Fraser River boardwalk in New Westminster, British Columbia. The chic hotel is near Vancouver’s top attractions but miles away from city stress.

Inn At The Quay went all-out glam this year, swapping ho-hum beiges and burgundies for saucy South Beachstyle throughout its living room lobby, 126 chic guestrooms, fitness room and meeting space.

Cheeky chairs and sofas with soul are a welcome shift left of traditional hotel furnishings. And who doesn’t adore a place with fluffy white bathrobes, waterfront guestroom balconies and Weekly Wine Flight Nightsin the living room. Add alfresco boardwalk dining at the Boathouse Restaurant and you get one fabulous getaway.

Only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver by SkyTrain, New Westminster is the oldest city in Western Canada and was once the capital of British Columbia. Today, New Westminster is a fabulous mix of old and new, with picturesque waterfront walkways and beautiful Victorian architecture.

A three-hour drive north of Seattle, the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver, British Columbia is set among glittering ocean waters and forested mountains. Vancouver was voted the “Best City in the Americas” in 2004, 2005 and 2006 by Condé Nast Traveler magazine for its ambience, friendliness, culture and sites, restaurants, lodging, and shopping. It is the host of the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games.
