Rosewood Hotel Georgia – originally opened 1927 – reopened June 2011, has lots of style. The hotel Bentley’s chauffeur, the divine Jim Dudley, was formerly Commodore of the Vancouver Yacht Club.
Hotel Managing Director Steve Halliday, seen in the lobby, is in his element, running a classic hotel on which the new owners have spent a fortune.
There is even an indoor pool with eight quadrilateral glass panels in its base that change day-glo colours as you swim.
The Lord Stanley Suite has its own rooftop terrace and hot tub.
The restaurant, Hawksworth, is run by David Hawksworth, shown with his wife Annabel.
Restaurant was packed at night, but deliciously quiet-quiet at breaklfast.
