Vancouver Staycation

One of my favourite parts of going on vacation is enjoying the amenities and all the little luxuries that come with staying in a nice hotel. But who says you need to wait for a vacation to enjoy some five star fun? Last weekend Andrea and I planned a little ‘staycation’ right in our own city and it was SO FUN. lobby-2 We booked a suite at the Four Seasons and spent the afternoon indulging in an amazing inner peace massage in the hotels RedCedar room. Then we lounged around the room in robes (our fav) while sipping on champagne before we headed to Blo Blow Dry Bar in the hotel lobby to get our hair did for a big night out. bedroom-2   blo-2 The service at the Four Seasons was de-luxe, as you can imagine, and no one gave us grief even though we called the concierge about 100 times with all sorts of odd requests. During this visit we didn’t get a chance to eat at Yew, their in-house spot for amazing seafood and drinks, but we were able to catch lunch there a few weeks ago and it was outstanding! Andrea recommends the scallop salad and I recommend the cashew cream pasta available on their vegan lunch menu. After we were primped and polished we had a few friends up to our room where we enjoyed even more champagne before we headed out in celebration of our friends birthday. We took down the dance floor at the Met (our friends random hipster choice) but honestly they played AMAZING early 2000’s music! I was sweating profusely and completely ruined my blow out getting down to R Kellys Ignition. Naturally.

The next morning was brunch at our favourite Cafe Medina and that wrapped up a glorious little staycation right in Vancouver!
