The stylish Loden is the real designer deal, and one of the first boutique properties in years to give Yaletown's Opus a run for its money. The chic, mocha-hued rooms have a contemporary feel, with luxe accoutrements such as marble-lined bathrooms and those oh-so-civilized heated floors. Service is top-notch; try the lobby resto-bar as well as the complimentary London taxi-cab limo service.
Free loaner bikes are also available; they're perfect for hitting the nearby Stanley Park seawall. Overnight parking costs $35.
