7 Things You Didn’t Know About the Pan Pacific Vancouver

Each week I update readers with some of the latest news and events taking place in and around the Pan Pacific.

In this week’s installment, I thought I’d share a few things about the hotel you may not have known about.

Here are 7 neat facts about the Pan Pacific:

1. We Get Tons of Cool Guests!

Quite often at the hotel, we get some really cool guests who stay with us.  Some are celebrities, athletes and famous artists.   Just recently Alex Bilodeau, Drake and the Canada Mens Basketball Team stayed with us for an extended period of time.

Some other notable mentions in years past include: Princess Diana & Prince Charles, Bill Clinton, the Agha Khan and the Dalai Lama.

2. We have a Spa Utopia Located in the Hotel


Guests and those in the Vancouver are always pleased to discover that we have a beautiful Spa Utopia in the Pan Pacific Vancouver.

The spa has a wack load of fancy and luxurious treatments to choose from – and right now if you book any service, you get a complimentary pass to the Pan Pacific Pool for the day.  The pool is sweet for these hot summer days!
