Downtown Vancouver Luxury Hotel Unveils Dramatic Changes to Its Public Spaces

With a New Restaurant Concept and More, the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Is Just Getting Started With Its Makeover

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2013) - Just as an outfit can make the person, so too can an aesthetic largely define a place. That's good news for the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel, which is eager to show off its recently renovated spaces.

After closing for three months, the hotel's Showcase Restaurant and Bar reopened as a tasty complement to the property's downtown Vancouver suites. Guests and locals alike have long appreciated this award-winning eatery, and now they have even more reasons to love it -- although they may not recognize it at first. Everything has been replaced, from the finishes to the floor plan. Stone feature walls, pillars that evoke the region's trees and a subtle turquoise motif that pays homage to the sea beyond are balanced by the floor-to-ceiling windows that let natural light sweep over the dining room.

An expanded bar and newly created private dining room that seats 24 people provide ample opportunity to try the locally inspired menu. Dishes reflect Showcase's diverse community -- guests are as apt to find Butter Chicken Curry on the menu as they are Fish and Chips -- and they're prepared with produce sourced from local farms as well as sustainable, local fish.

Perhaps the most mouthwatering of Vancouver's downtown hotel deals, the property is offering a $50 dining credit per night so that travellers can easily experience the new Showcase.

Of course, they don't need to wait for a meal to see this hotel's new look. Visitors' first interaction with the renovations happens in the lobby, where Marriott's signature Great Room concept has been appealingly integrated. Communal tables outfitted with power and Wi-Fi encourage networking and productivity among guests, while the overall space flows effortlessly between the Showcase Bar, the lobby and the Great Room.

Guests will find the Concierge Lounge has enjoyed a total makeover as well. Boasting harbour and mountain views from the 29th floor, the lounge also enjoys expanded seating capacity.

As dramatic as all these changes are, there is still more to come. In the next few months, the downtown Vancouver hotel suites will undergo their own renovations. And, if the recent updates are any sign of things to come, travellers can look forward to encountering an even more attractive hotel in the near future.
