Vancouver, BC - July 27, 2011 On Friday, July 15th, Rosewood Hotel Georgia opened its doors to welcome the first guests since its dramatic restoration, returning this historic hotel in Vancouver, BC to its position as the social, business and cultural hub of the city. This luxury hotel in Vancouver, reopening under the management of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, started life 84 years ago and has enjoyed a vibrant past with guests including glamorous Hollywood stars, music legends and British Royalty.

This historic Vancouver hotel has been lovingly restored in preparation for its revival and counts one of the country's largest private collections of Canadian art among its unique draws. An exquisitely restored Spanish Ballroom, Sense A Rosewood Spa®, nearly 10,000 square feet of deluxe banquet and meeting facilities, 110 breathtaking crystal chandeliers and intimate lobby lounge, 1927, all add to the allure of this world-class retreat.

"We are delighted to introduce the new Rosewood Hotel Georgia," said John Scott, CEO for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. "The opening marks an incredible milestone; the culmination of many months of love, work and dedication by some of Canada's most respected creative and hospitality industry talent. We are thrilled to be part of the promising futures of both Vancouver and this legendary building."

The newly restored Vancouver, British Columbia luxury hotel features 155 rooms and suites that will be the height of sophistication against the remarkable backdrop of the restored hotel, including two exceptional penthouse suites; the Lord Stanley Suite and the hotel's signature Rosewood Suite both feature a private rooftop terrace complete with stunning city skyline views, outdoor hot tub and fireplace.

Since 1927, Hotel Georgia has represented Vancouver's most stylish and elegant retreat at the beating heart of the city. This legendary hotel is located just steps away from long stretches of sea wall, the downtown shopping and business districts and Canada's greenest convention centre. Named "Top City of the Americas" in Conde Nast Traveler's 2010 Readers' Choice Awards, Vancouver's reputation as a world-class city, flanked by magnificent snow-kissed mountains and the Pacific Ocean continues to shine. The 155-room historic hotel is home to Hawksworth Restaurant, lead by visionary chef David Hawksworth; Sense, A Rosewood Spa® offering a menu of West Coast treatments; thoughtfully designed meetings facilities; a heritage ballroom and spacious lounges, which act as a tranquil and enticing haven in this radiant downtown hub.
