Paying homage to the original Douglas firs that laid the foundation for Vancouver’s thriving economy, the DOUGLAS, an Autograph Collection Hotel, masterfully reconnects people and place, while seamlessly introducing nature into an elegant, urban environment. The intention is simple, to enliven human necessity—good sleep, pure water, wellness, and social interaction—and inspire growth of the body and mind. Each stay adds a beneficial layer to one’s life, much like the rings of a tree. the DOUGLAS spares no attention to detail, pairing original touch points from Rob Wells of creative agency Sixteenfifty with thoughtful interiors by Vincent Celano of Celano Design Studio. Urbane, natural elements trim the lobby and hallways; 188 rooms and suites are attentively appointed, with careful consideration to the needs of the modern traveler. The hotel impresses with a curated collection of social spaces, including an exquisitely furnished lobby bar leading out into the elevated sixth floor park. Such distinct experiences give the DOUGLAS integrity and heart, to which guests can connect, making travel personal again. Guests of the DOUGLAS enjoy instant access to Parq Vancouver’s breadth of amenities, including eight restaurants and lounges, sixth floor park, and world-class gaming, and is conveniently connected to over 60,000 square feet of meeting and event facilities within the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver—its sister hotel property offering an additional 329 rooms and suites, tranquil spa, and fitness studio.
