“We are thrilled to welcome Hotel Belmont Vancouver into the Accor family and to celebrate the Canadian debut of the MGallery Hotel Collection. It is exciting to bring a new brand into a market in which our legacy dates back more than 130 years, building on the strong foundation we have established with Fairmont, Sofitel and Novotel across the country,” said Heather McCrory, CEO, Accor North & Central America.
The five-storey, 82-room boutique property is located in Vancouver’s entertainment district. Since it opened in 1912, it has played a role in the evolution of the city’s downtown. Its storied past includes hosting many performers, including crooner Michael Bublé at the start of his singing career.
In 2019, the property underwent an extensive renovation that blended history and modernity for an Instagram-worthy aesthetic. Preservation of original design elements celebrates the hotel’s heritage and character, while a flamingo pink and seafoam green colour palette in the bar and neon-lit public areas deliver a retro-cool feel.
The Living Room at Hotel Belmont Vancouver serves as the property’s full-service restaurant lounge. The Den and The Kitchen serve as private spaces for small events and gatherings.
“Hotel Belmont is a unique asset within Pacific Reach’s hotel portfolio with its historic charm, iconic presence and eclectic design elements,” said Jeff Leung, director, Hotel Operations, Pacific Reach. “Since acquiring this hotel, Pacific Reach has made significant investments in the improvement of the property and in the creation of the Hotel Belmont brand, with the goal of embracing and enhancing the historic lights and legendary nights of the Granville Entertainment District. We are proud of what Hotel Belmont has accomplished since it reopened in May of 2019 after a transformative renovation. We are confident that this new partnership with Accor as the first MGallery hotel in Canada will further elevate and expand Hotel Belmont’s global presence in the boutique hotel segment.”
