From Hong Kong to London, we round up some of the world's most notable overnights
WHAT YOU’LL FIND JUST OUTSIDE: Located in the refurbished warehouse district of Yaletown, the Opus has been at the forefront of the neighborhood’s revival. The 12 blocks around the hotel are packed with spas, art galleries and trendy restaurants like the Blue Water Café and Raw Bar, which hosted the cast party for the second Twilight movie.
AMAZING AMENITIES: In addition to complimentary mountain bikes and luxury car service to anywhere in downtown Vancouver, the hotel offers its guests iPads stocked with concierge recommendations—and the staff is perfectly happy to let you take yours wherever you’re going, so you don’t get lost.
IDEAL GUEST: There are five, actually. Each room’s décor is themed to one of the following personality types: Billy, the London rock star; Susan, the Toronto fashion executive; Mike, the New York doctor; Pierre, the Parisian food critic; and Dede, the actress from L.A. (Really.)
SIGNATURE COCKTAIL: Getting serious about your room-specific persona? Check out the spa-esque essential oil-infused “lifestyle cocktails” at the chic Opus Bar. Dede’s fave, the Eve Mojito—white rum, mint, lime juice, soda, simple syrup and peppermint essential oil—might be the best of the bunch.
