Gold Le Soleil

Vancouver, BC V6C 2E8

Area: Downtown

One of our favorite stay/play options in all of Vancouver, Le Soleil tops our charts primarily for its wonderful, upscale accommodation and proximity to one of the best athletic centers downtown, the YWCA. It's not a huge hotel, with only 4 to 6 rooms per floor, which helps to ensure prompt service and attention. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with any request.

Rooms and common areas bestow a heavy neo-classical influence with an abundance of gold color, not our favorite design scheme, but certainly appealing. Most of the rooms are "cozy" (read small), and you'll want to request a room above the 11th floor for a view. Guests will appreciate windows that open to the fresh Canadian air, Aveda bath products, complimentary wireless internet access, daily newspaper, use of business center, and room service from 7am to 10pm.

Le Soleil has a very small fitness room on the second floor. Inside you will find one elliptical, one treadmill, and one stationary cycle. There are no weights. Even though the room is small, we still think it smart to have something onsite.  BUT, as mentioned before, athletic-minded travelers can skip this room and head over to the YWCA next door. Discounted passes ($11/day) are sold at the front desk to this full service community center. Everything you need, including a 25-meter pool for lap swimmers, is here.

In addition to treadmills at the YW, runners should also consider the harbor path that heads northwest along the water to Stanley Park.
