Trump International Hotel and Tower Vancouver Officially Opens
TA Global Bhd. and Trump Hotels yesterday celebrated the official grand opening of the Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver.
Set in the heart of downtown at 1161 West Georgia Street, the twisting $360-million tower, designed by architect Arthur Erickson, is one of the tallest buildings in the city at 69-stories high. Each of the 147 luxury guest rooms and suites feature sweeping views through floor-to-ceiling windows, with no two sights exactly alike.
The property is the first luxury hotel to open in the city in over six years, and it is the second Trump Hotel property in Canada.
“We are thrilled to open the doors to the finest hotel and tower in the city,” says Joo Kim Tiah, CEO of TA Global Bhd., owner and developer of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver. “Our goal was to create the best luxury hotel and residences Canada has ever seen as well as to reflect Vancouver’s status as an international gateway city. We are confident that we’ve achieved this vision and are very excited to invite Vancouverites, hotel guests and residents to enjoy this unparalleled hospitality experience.”
The hotel will be home to “The Spa by Ivanka Trump”; an award winning fine dining Chinese restaurant, Mott 32; the city’s ultra lounge, Drai’s Vancouver; and The Trump Champagne Lounge.
“Hotels are an important part of the fabric of each community by providing both career opportunities and driving the local economy,” said Donald Trump Jr., Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization. “Trump Vancouver has not only created over 300 jobs but it will offer guests and locals exceptional hospitality as well as fantastic dining and entertainment. We are incredibly honoured to be a part of this world-class city.”
He continued, “I would like to thank Joo Kim and the entire team for their hard work and dedication to making this truly one of the finest properties anywhere in the world. It is an amazing addition to our portfolio and we are immensely proud of the end result.”
The Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver lies within blocks of couture shopping, fine dining, entertainment and a buzzing financial sector. The property will also offer guests its signature Trump Attaché™ program featuring personalized VIP treatment 24-hours per day. The hotel’s service includes use of luxury house cars, personal shopping services, pet walking and more.
“There has been a tremendous amount of hard work and passion poured into our Trump Vancouver property and we are so thankful to the community and the city for the incredible support,” said General Manager of Trump Vancouver, Philipp Posch. “We are eager to welcome visitors and locals to our truly spectacular hotel.”
Alongside the countless offerings at Trump Vancouver is the 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Glass walls and doors allow for an abundance of natural light and the fresh Pacific air to flow through the elegant rooms, creating a unique offering for business meetings, social events and weddings.
