Vancouver Hotel is First in Canada with in-room iPads

Opus, the boutique hotel in Vancouver’s Yaletown warehouse district, has always marched to the beat of its own drum.  Instead of having a single design scheme for its rooms, the high-end hotel has five different ones to match different personalities, from stylish sophisticates to modern minimalists and Hollywood A-Listers.

Now, Opus has taken its personalized approach one step further, with in-room iPads programmed to match each of those different personality profiles.  These new “digital concierges” (standard in all rooms) come preloaded with apps and web links that reflect specific shopping, sightseeing, restaurant and nightlife preferences.  Artsy types can learn more about Vancouver’s hippest galleries, for instance, while shopaholics can browse the city’s trendiest boutiques.

Opus is the first hotel in Canada to include an iPad in every room.  The tablets are also programmed with GPS features to encourage guests to explore the city on their own and make new discoveries.

Thinking about staying?  Opus is geared to savvy travelers looking for lodging with extra flavor and striking styling.  Interior design emphasizes vibrant color, sensuous fabrics and natural light (Don’t expect the standard floral patterns and brass fixtures here).  The hotel was recently recognized as among the world’s trendiest in the 2012 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.  Learn more.

    I stayed in a very nice place in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast that had iPads in the rooms a couple of years ago. A very nice feature, but I don’ t think Opus is first, they’re just shouting louder about it.

  2. I never read whole articles but the way you wrote this information is simply amazing and this kept my interest in reading for all your blogging efforts.
