Centrally located on the edge of the city’s West End, Paradox Hotel Vancouver is no ordinary building, as it was designed by a world-renowned Canadian architect and celebrated local luminary, Arthur Erickson. The 69-story tower is Vancouver’s second-tallest building and a landmark on the city’s skyline. The iconic twisting tower is stunning not only on the outside but also on the inside.

The architectural twist rotates each floor to allow every room to have its unique floorplan with distinct views looking out from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Paradox Hotel Vancouver rooms capture the city from every angle – with cityscape views of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park and a stunning backdrop of mountains beyond the downtown core.

Paradox breaks the mould of what most think a ‘luxury lifestyle’ hotel would look and feel like. This hotel is a place that is both comfortable and eccentric, with an intimate sense of space and an atmosphere of chance encounters.

Paradox is a bold, modern take on upscale lifestyle and boutique hotel that is pet-friendly and so chic. Think of it as classic but not conservative; sophisticated but unpretentious. Even the carefully curated interiors and exteriors invite immersive experiences.

Upon launching last year, Holborn Group CEO Joo Kim Tiah shared, “Our global teams possess decades of experience and an established network of industry partners, having developed and operated numerous high-profile hotels worldwide. We strive to be at the vanguard of curating inspiring and exceptional experiences for our travellers, so it was imperative to not only come out with our own distinct brand but also create something that would exceed expectations by challenging the industry status quo. We have always wanted to consolidate our hotels, and the time to embark on this meaningful journey is right now.”
