Spring Break Staycation

Jw Marriott 12A staycation is wonderful way to take a break from the every day. Over the long weekend, we were invite to experience the new JW Marriott hotel at Parq, located in downtown, Vancouver. This luxury hotel is situated on the Parq Property and features a casino, restaurants and hotel amenities. We only live a few blocks away, so it was the perfect place to enjoyed a quick getaway, without the hassle of travel.

I was excited when we walked into our suite and saw all the natural light and beautiful details. Most hotels are dark, and hard to photograph but this airy space with marble and light coloured features is a bloggers dream!

After settling in, we made our way down to The Victor for dinner, located on the 6th floor of the property. We’ve dined here a few times and it’s become one of my favourite restaurant in the city. The design concept is inspired from the reign of Queen Victoria. My favourite part are the banquets, in beautiful kelly green leather, reminiscent of the seats in London’s chamber in the House of Commons.

Along with craft cocktails and an extensive wine list, the menu features an array of Pacific Northwest seafood and aย selection of specialty steaks. They also have excellent vegetarian options. My favourite is the mac & cheese waffles and the cauliflower steak. Even if you’re not staying at the Parq property, the Victor should be on your Vancouver dining list.

We were happy to take advantage of the late check out and enjoy a lazy morning in the suite overlooking False Creek. There is a fantastic spot for brunch in the hotel lobby called Honey Salt, but on this occasion a relaxed morning in bed with lattes, magazines and easter eggs was perfect.JW Marriott 12JW Marriott 10JW Marriott 11JW Marriott 9JW Marriot 7JW Marriott 7JW Marriott 18After departing the hotel, we walked through David Lam Park in Yaletown where all the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Vancouver is a beautiful city, but Spring time is particularly pretty. It was fun to have a little escape for the every day, and enjoy being tourists in our own town. A good reminder of how lucky we are to call this place home.JW Marriott 19

  • Aw, you look so pretty in all these photos and LOVE what you wore. Any outfit with a motto jacket is stealing my heart these days… have been wearing mine non-stop! And yay, to staycations – they’re the best + the Marriott looks like such a fantastic spot for that.


    • I’m so happy it’s finally leather jacket season! I’ve been wearing it almost every day. Just goes with everything. The JW Marriott is so gorgeous. We should go for tea at Honey Salt sometime ๐Ÿ™‚
