Hotel Georgia (Vancouver)

Hotel Georgia is a historic hotel located at 801 West Georgia street in Downtown Vancouver. It was opened on May 7 1927, as a 12 storey building. It was most recently branded as the Crowne Plaza Hotel Georgia with 313 rooms, by owner Allied Hotel Properties Inc. In 1998, it underwent a major restoration and renovation. The building and many portions of the interior are designated as a protected heritage property by the City of Vancouver. Sold in early 2007, the hotel is currently undergoing restoration and redevelopment.

Future

Currently the hotel's parking structure has been demolished and a new high-rise building is being constructed in its place. The tower will include 48 stories, and will rise to 156 metres. When complete in 2011, it is expected to be the 3rd tallest tower in the city, after the Living Shangri-La and Ritz Carlton Tower. All three of these developments are new mixed use hotel/residences towers on Georgia Street.
