can recommend the Pan-Seared Scallops or Hamachi Sashimi as an appetizer along with the Yarrow Meadows Duck Breast or Yellowfin Tuna for a main. It was worth the two-year wait! When a friend heard that I was spending the night at the Hotel Georgia, she told me that I had to check out the cool patio lounge on the fourth floor. Walking into Reflections - a seasonal lounge with reflecting pools, waterfall and private cabanas - I felt that I could be on a rooftop patio in Miami, Manhattan or Los Angeles. The other lounge in the hotel is 1927, a cozy, intimate, velvet-accented space, where the cast of “Mad Men” would feel right at home. At Bel Cafe,

also run by Hawksworth, you’ll find a selection of coffee and ready-to-go items such as freshly baked pastries, sandwiches and soups. Located in the center of the busy downtown core, you’ll find yourself within easy reach of many activities and attractions. If arriving in Vancouver via seaplane, it’s a 5 - 10 minute walk from the seaplane terminal. Walk five minutes in the opposite direction and you’ll reach Robson Street, Vancouver’s premier shopping district. For longer excursions (within about three miles) to places such as Gastown or Stanley Park, you can book the complimentary Bentley car service. I didn’t have time to enjoy this luxury

but had a lovely exchange with Jim, the chauffeur. When I asked to take a photo of the car, he was charming and spent five minutes of his day taking my photo with the car and letting me sit in the driver’s seat - probably the only time in my life that I’ll ever sit in a Bentley.
