The stylish celebration continues! It’s been 20 years since OPUS Vancouver debuted as the city’s first luxury boutique hotel, and to mark the occasion it’s offering 20 rooms at the 2002 grand opening rate of $200 per night.
The throwback pricing is a nod to the vibrant energy of the early aughts in Vancouver’s SOHO-like restaurant and boutique district, and the instant and lasting impact of OPUS on the neighbourhood. When it first opened its doors, OPUS Vancouver was a marvel — a sexy, sensational wunderkind making its mark on the stately world of luxury hotels. It combined exceptional service and high-end amenities with boldly beautiful style and a cheeky personality… it was an immediate hit with Vancouverites and visitors alike.
Over the past two decades OPUS has evolved along with the neighbourhood, yet still maintains the youthful spirit that set it apart from the start. The hotel’s walls showcase the provocative work of local Vancouver artists, including Michael Miller, Tiko Kerr, Mark Mizgala, Taizo Yamamoto, and Alana Rothstein. This past spring, OPUS also commissioned artist Alex J. Fowkes to bring its signature #ItsLoveBaby wall back to life, with inspiration pulled from the years for a mural that holds pride of place on the hotel’s exterior façade. And of course, even the guest rooms themselves offer a colourful connection to its unique personality. Guests can choose from the modern and minimalist decor of Mike’s rooms, with splashes of Cherry Wine Red; or the daring and dramatic reimagined Hollywood-glam-and-Roosevelt-Taupe of Dede’s Signature Suites. Pierre’s vibrant and outgoing decor includes sunny Hermès Orange walls offset by earthy tones, while Billy’s room is an artful and eclectic Liverpool Green. Susan’s stylish, sensual, and sophisticated rooms feature California Lilac.
Guests who take advantage of the anniversary rate can also enjoy flavour-forward Italian fare and beverages in Capo & The Spritz: the former, a true neighbourhood pizzeria, and the latter, a cozy, sophisticated cocktail bar nestled just off the lobby. And of course, there are endless opportunities for neighbourhood explorations and next-level R&R.
