    A hospitality ambassador greets guests near a stand of bamboo at a candlelit entrance below street level, then escorts them to their Accommodations for in-room check-in over tea. The welcome ritual evokes the Far East, but the establishment itself—the first hotel in North America from Hong Kong–based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts—offers a prime vantage of the far West. The Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, occupies the first 15 floors of the Canadian city’s tallest building and affords skyline and mountain views through floor-to-ceiling glass. Accommodations Eighty guest rooms and 39 suites. Dining The hotel’s third-floor restaurant is the three-Michelin-star Market by Jean-Georges. Facilities At Chi, the spa situated on the Shangri-La’s fifth floor, patrons can enjoy the West Coast Path—a four-hour, sea-plant-based treatment—and other locally themed therapies. Rates From $330 to $4,750.
