St. Regis Hotel – MMV Giveaway for Dinner, Shopping and Accommodations (Over $550 value)!

It is finally summer again in Vancouver and what better time than ever to indulge in a staycation after enjoying sunshine, cool beats or retail therapy around town. Our latest boutique hotel discovery is the St. Regis Hotel that is located in downtown Vancouver’s shopping heaven – right next to Pacific Centre where you can walk into Holt Renfrew in less than a minute.

Originally built 99 years ago, St. Regis Hotel went through a complete renovation and was rebranded as a New York style heritage boutique hotel in 2008. Even at such intriguing rates, this hotel is truly luxurious with rave reviews on Trip Advisor including being the Traveller’s Choice® 2012 Winner for Best Service.

This hotel is as boutique as it gets when it comes to what is included for its guests. The long and delightful list of free amenities consists of unlimited wifi, use of the Business Center, access to Steve Nash Sports Club, Fiji bottled water in each room, worldwide long distance and best of all, a full freshly-prepared breakfast! The value and all-inclusive offerings available at St. Regis Hotel makes other special rates and deals out there seem so trivial.

In true boutique hotel fashion, the dining options are carefully tailored to suit the guests that stay at St. Regis Hotel. One side of the hotel connects to one of Vancouver’s top restaurants, Gotham Steakhouse while the other side offers a more casual and trendier option, The St. Regis Bar & Grill. Conveniently, both are conveniently located off the lobby.  There is so much to enjoy
and indulge in at St. Regis Hotel.

My verdict? It’s going to be near impossible to ever discover a hotel offering as many free amenities and perks as the St. Regis!

MMV Giveaway: Thanks to the generosity of St. Regis Hotel, this is Modern Mix Vancouver’s biggest giveaway ever!  MMV is giving away a St. Regis ‘Holt Renfrew Shopping Experience” Package plus $150 at Gotham’s Steakhouse valued at over $550!

    The last “staycation” I had was at St. Paul’s Hospital when my son was born! I could definitely do with a night away from the kids, and who doesn’t love dinner and shopping!!! Yes Please!

    We are planning stay-cations this Summer as we have lots of family events and a few weddings and parties to attend to that will cost money. We try to get out Vancouver when possible, but often we are end up getting stuck near home. We would love to enjoy all that Vancouver has to offer this Summer. The nights stay at the sophisticated Regis Hotel would be amazing. Luxury shopping at Holt Renfew would be a treat. Dining at Gotham’s Steakhouse is making my mouth water. And all the complimentary extra’s would be such a fantastic experience. Thanks for the chance to win.

    It always seems when I plan a vacation, something seems to happen just before I go – and then the vacation either gets cancelled or is not very much fun. A one night stay could just be the ticket to try out – and have a stay-cation in Vancouver – enjoy what we have and then recommend the experience to others!

    shopping, dining, and travelling with hotel stay are my top 3 favorite things to do. but i’ve never shopped at holt renfrew before although there are many things that i wanted to buy from there. so i’m sure i’ll enjoy and appreciate every second i spend in the hotel and for this entire stay-cation.

    My wife and I have been working our butts off to pay off wedding and unemployment debt (3 layoffs between the two of us since 2010). We can’t even afford a staycation, let alone a vacation and have had to postpone our honeymoon. This prize package sounds absolutely divine and would be very much appreciated. Thanks for the chance! @flipnfunny

    It’s been a recent tradition that for my Mom’s birthday, my brother and I take our Mom to stay the night at a hotel in the city. We started the tradition because we were finding it really hard to get our Mom a gift for her birthday- at her age, she has most things she needs. Family time is the most important thing for my Mom and the best gift we could have gave her, so we leave our computers, our own plans and our routines behind and spend a good 24 hours together as a family in honour of Mom’s birthday. In the past, we’ve brought our own snacks, our Scrabble board and the desire to grow closer as a family to these getaway nights. This experience would be perfect for us as we haven’t had a lot of family time together since my brother moved away and it would be so memorable for the three of us!

    I was very young when my mom and stepdad met at the St Regis in the late 60’s. My stepdad was a doorman there and my mom worked at the front desk. I haven’t been there in years but it always brings back wonderful memories for me and this is the reason I follow your page. Both my mom and stepdad are no longer here in the physical but I know that they are together. A love like they had never ends.

In our 34 years of marriage we’ve never had a vacation together, raising the children, tending our Bed and Breakfast and home based business and the pets has kept us from travelling together. Would love a mini romantic stay at the St Regis with my honey!!

    What a great opportunity! Located right in the heart of downtown, personally, I find the St. Regis fantastic for proximity to any and all amenities and businesses that serve both eager tourists and ‘Vancouverites’ alike. Steve Nash Fitness World is a top notch facility, and one can argue it being JUST around the corner is no excuse not to go!

    Take a stroll up Granville street afterwards for little nook restaurants and the best night life in the city.
