At luxury hotels, guests are accustomed to certain amenities — room service, 24-hour business centres, full-service spas and a knowledgeable concierge. But every now and then, a hotel goes above and beyond by offering additional services and amenities. Here are a few Vancouver-area hotels that go the extra distance to make their guests feel welcome with unique service programs.
Rose Buds at Rosewood Hotel Georgia

At Hotel Georgia, however, even the youngest guests (and parents) can enjoy their stay by taking advantage of Rose Buds. This special programme offers amenities such as Baby Primrose skincare products, full-size cribs and linens, child-sized bathrobes and slippers, a children’s menu for in-room dining and more. Parents can even use the hotel’s babysitting services for some relaxing time alone.
