Executive Hotels and Resorts has launched Seaside, a new waterfront property located in The Shipyards District of Lower Lonsdale (Lolo), which is North Vancouver’s historic arts and dining neighborhood. The boutique property features 71 guest rooms and suites with views of the Pacific Ocean and North Shore mountains. The architecture firm ZGF worked in collaboration with Executive Hotels’ in-house design team to bring the spirit of the outside indoors, building upon the revival of Wallace Shipyards. This vibrant new 84,000-square-foot commercial and community gathering space includes a winter ice skating rink and water plaza featuring markets, exhibitions, performances and festivals year-round.

Seaside Provisions, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, blurs the lines between restaurant, bar and lounge. Guests may arrive by boat, kayak or paddleboard and tie up to dock and dine.  Meanwhile, The Wallace, the hotel’s adjacent event space is the perfect location to host functions for up to 200 guests. 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
