Pacific Reach Properties Rebrands Former Westin Grand Hotel to Hilton Vancouver Downtown

Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia. January 13, 2021

Pacific Reach Properties has announced the rebranding of the former Westin Grand Hotel to Hilton Vancouver Downtown.

Owned and operated by Pacific Reach Properties, the first Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in downtown Vancouver will leverage Hilton's brand equity to drive awareness in the marketplace, increase marketing efficiency across the global portfolio and offer the more than 110 million Hilton Honors members a new option for accommodations.

"Since opening in 1999, the hotel has garnered many accolades and with over 20 years of operational excellence, our dedicated staff will continue to provide outstanding service and hospitality," said Pradeep Puri, general manager, Hilton Vancouver Downtown. "Our team is excited to welcome to a new group of guests who will now be able to experience Hilton hospitality firsthand in downtown Vancouver."

Hilton Vancouver Downtown is comprised of 206 guestrooms (primarily one-bedroom suites), more than 4,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, a 24-hour fitness facility and year-round heated outdoor pool overlooking Robson Street. Guests and locals can continue to enjoy Hendricks Resto-Lounge, a mix of old-school cocktail bar and full-service restaurant serving up the classics with a twist while overlooking vibrant Library Square.

In addition to the above highlights and as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hilton Vancouver Downtown is participating in the Hilton CleanStay Program to help guests enjoy a clean and safe experience during their stay. The new standards under Hilton CleanStay include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to show that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, additional cleaning of common areas and items, contactless check-in, innovative disinfection technology and flexible housekeeping options.

Hilton Vancouver Downtown is also part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 18 distinct hotel brands. Members who book directly have access to instant benefits, including a flexible payment slider that allows members to choose nearly any combination of Points and money to book a stay, an exclusive member discount, free standard Wi-Fi and the Hilton Honors mobile app.

To celebrate the hotel's opening, Hilton Honors members will earn 1,000 Bonus Points per night for stays between April 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021, when booking directly with Hilton.

Hilton Vancouver Downtown is located at 433 Robson Street in the heart of Vancouver's entertainment district and just 14 kilometers to Vancouver International Airport.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
