Second Element hotel opens in Canada

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide opened the Element Vancouver Metrotown – the second Element hotel to open in Canada. Owned by Bosa Properties and managed by Atlific Hotels, Element Vancouver Metrotown is part of Bosa’s new Sovereign building, the tallest tower in Burnaby, British Columbia. The 169-room hotel offers views of the North Shore Mountains and downtown Vancouver. Element Vancouver Metrotown joins Element Vaughan Southwest in the greater Toronto region, and will be followed by the opening of two more Element hotels in Canada next year.

Element Vancouver Metrotown is located on the northeast corner of Kingsway and Willingdon Avenue within Metropolis at Metrotown – a leading shopping, dining and entertainment complex just steps from the growing Burnaby business district. Home to numerous corporations and high-tech businesses, Burnaby is a quick 20 minute ride from downtown Vancouver via SkyTrain and convenient to Rogers Arena, BC Place and the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Element Vancouver Metrotown has studio guestrooms and suites with a fluid design of modular furniture, swiveling flat-screen televisions, desks with open shelving and custom-designed closets. Spa-inspired bathrooms are equipped with a rain shower and dual-flush toilet. Rooms also offer fully equipped kitchens and the Heavenly Bed. The hotel also offers complimentary bikes to borrow, a 24-hour fitness center and an indoor saline swimming pool. A 28,000-square-foot Good Life Fitness gym is also located in the Sovereign Tower.
