Los Angeles-based hotel operator Kor Hotel Group opened its first hotel in Canada on 1177 Melville Street in beautiful Vancouver. The urban retreat offers 77 sophisticated guestrooms, 24 hour in-room dining and a fitness studio open 24 hours a day, perfect for a young & dynamic clientele.

Loden will also feature a superb, Babey Moulton Jue & Booth designed, 80-seat restaurant called Voya (derived from Voyage) with one mission in mind: food can be a journey unto itself. Voya is led by popular ex-Lumière Québécois Chef Marc-André Choquette.

The $35 million, 14-storey hotel was developed by the Amacon Group of Vancouver is now managed by accomplished hotelier Mrs Edel Forristal (ex Four Seasons, Pan Pacific, Hotel Vancouver).

Loden VancouverI think opening a hotel is the ultimate experience when you work in this business and I am very excited about this new product for Vancouver.

All the best to the entire team at Loden Vancouver for your successful opening!

    Thanks Heather for your comment. I am a freelance blogger and don’t have any direct link with The Loden Vancouver other than the fact that some ex-Fairmont colleagues are now working there. Cheers!
