Parq Vancouver to Open With 60K Sq. Ft. of Event Space Sept. 29<

Parq Vancouver is set to open Friday, September 29, with over 60,000 square feet of flexible event space. 

Meeting planners will be able to take advantage of 13 ballrooms, boardrooms and meeting rooms, including the 15,604 square foot Parq Grand Ballroom, the largest hotel ballroom in the city. The hotel will also incorporate The Park, a sixth-floor 30,000 square foot outdoor space with more than 200 native pines that aim to pay homage to the natural beauty of British Columbia

Built to meet LEED Gold environmental standards, Parq Vancouver is the largest private development in British Columbia, and will include two luxury hotels and a full culinary lineup.
From its second-floor entrance at Gate G of BC Place, to its floor-to-ceiling windows and curated art collection, Parq Vancouver aims to connect to the dynamic culture and energy of the city. Marking an introduction to Western Canada and bridged by The Park and all of the resort’s amenities, Parq Vancouver includes JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and the DOUGLAS, an Autograph Collection Hotel.

With a lobby featuring a full-sized replica Douglas fir encased in glass, the DOUGLAS represents a balanced dialogue of nature and city. The DOUGLAS will have 178 rooms and 10 suites, designed by Vincent Celano and created by Rob Wells, between the seventh and 17th floors, and aimed at the experiential traveler.
Parq Vancouver will also incorporate the region’s first JW Marriott. Designed by Toronto-based Studio Munge, the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver will have 281 rooms and 48 suites located between the sixth and 25th floors, as well as Canada’s first Spa by JW Marriott.
A James Beard Award-nominated duo comprised of restaurateur Elizabeth Blau and Canadian Chef Kim Canteenwalla of Blau + Associates will debut eight restaurants and lounges at Parq Vancouver. The food and beverage portfolio draws inspiration from the cuisines of the Pacific Northwest, as well as the pair’s international travels and discoveries.
The second and third floor gaming levels – bathed in natural light by floor-to-ceiling windows – will have 600 slot machines, 75 table games, a poker room, and 11 exclusive salons for a private gaming experience.
