The Keefer

Maybe you work really hard, or haven’t had a night away from home or the kids, or both for quite some time. Well…don’t you think you’ve earned it.  And while you’re at it, why don’t you treat yourself to a little bit of luxury, after all, you may not earn like a rock star but maybe occasionally, for one night only, you would like to live like one.  By live like one, we mean upgrading your accommodation, if only for one night, and do not mean trashing a hotel room while snorting rails of a stripper’s backside.  So, take that one day rock star vacation and get yourself a room at the Keefer.  Sitting just on the outskirts of Vancouver’s Chinatown and a short walk to the hip and happening Gastown, the Keefer would have been the hotel of choice for the Stones had it been open the last time they were in town.  You don’t find much better appointed rooms than these ones, with flat screens, radiant floor heating, exposed beams in a historic Vancouver building, and one of the great bars of Vancouver aptly named the Keefer Bar (complete with Burlesque show).  Our favourite part is the in suite old school fitness area with speed bag, boxing gloves, chinning bar, medicine ball and exercise mat.  However, the roof top pool and bar (pictured above) isn’t bad either.
