The hotel lies at the junction of the West End and downtown and is bounded by water on three side, English bay, Coal Harbour and Lost Lagoon in world famous Stanley Park. Recreational amenities are located within walking distance for residents of this high density area. The West End is a livable neighborhood that is home to a unique mix of people and places. Its a community that features a range of housing, land use, heritage buildings, transportation options, and amenities.
Diversity in the West End extends to different areas with the neighborhood itself. Davie Street – also known as Davie Village – is predominately young, trendy and gay, whereas the area closer to Stanley Park and Denman Street is more family-orientated and older-generation. The neighborhood has an entirely different feel on the either side of Bute Street, a demarcation between quiet and residential on the west side and the bustle and noise of Downtown’s business and shopping districts on the east.
We welcome you to our gay friendly hotel where you will feel right at home!

The Blue Horizon Hotel is one of Vancouver’s favourite landmarks. Built on a rise, it was the tallest building in Vancouver and its rooftop beacons guided planes in at night. The blue glass mosaic tiles are Italian made and with the white balconies, made the building a bright landmark of the city. The French-provincial restaurant on the 31st floor had a 360-degree view.
After many major renovations through the years, the last being winter of 2013, the Blue Horizon Hotel has become a modern-day hotel that has been the home away from home for many travellers.
The million dollar views today from the corner guest rooms on the high floors and banquet rooms are spectacular.
