Happy Anniversary Rosedale!

Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotels has been a long-time partner of Pacific Theatre and a huge supporter of the arts in Vancouver. Without the ongoing support and encouragement from General Manager Jim Miller and the rest of the Rosedale staff over the years, it's hard to say where we would be as a company, so we are thrilled that they're celebrating their 15th anniversary.

Oh, and did you know that you can get a special discount on rooms at Rosedale? Just ask for the "friends of PT" rate when you book and not only will you get a deal, but a percentage of your order will be donated to us. It's wonderful support systems like this that make Rosedale on Robson a vital partner to Pacific Theatre.

Community Partnerships And A Stylish Renovation Mark the 15th Anniversary of Vancouver’s
Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel

Vancouver, BC – April 28, 2010

1995 was a great year for new landmarks in Vancouver, and the Rosedale On Robson Suite Hotel with its distinctive neon roof-top rose was at the centre of them all. The new neighbours - the coliseum-like Vancouver Public Library, the Ford Centre for the Performing Arts and GM Place Stadium brought a new sophistication to the city and a demand for an affordable hotel experience. Opened April 2, 1995, the Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel, located at 838 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, is proudly celebrating its 15th anniversary with new accommodation packages, a stylish renovation and a continuing dedication to pleasing guests and supporting the community.

General Manager James D. Miller is especially proud. “Our strength is in our service. We have 14 original employees still on staff – and I am one of them. In an industry with a high turnover, loyalty translates to a warmer welcome for guests and faster problem-solving. In fact, half our staff have been with the hotel for ten years or more.” He said “Our most challenging time was during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The thank-you letters I received afterwards from heads of delegations and corporate partners were a tremendous reward for our team”.

The all-suite hotel located at the corner of Hamilton and Robson Streets in the heart of downtown Vancouver’s sports and entertainment district is known for its spacious, comfortable and well-appointed suites, all of which are equipped with a kitchenette. There is a mature treed roof-top garden over the porte-cochere, which was one of the first to add to the greening of the neighbourhood. Every month, the Rosedale’s special event team puts together unique sports and entertainment packages guests can take advantage of.

The Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel has recently undergone a facelift inside and out. The fresh look includes new carpets, bedspreads, bedroom furniture, and flat screen tv’s. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the friendliness and hospitality of its staff.

The Rosedale is a founding partner of the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, and in 2007 was the recipient of The Globe and Mail Business For The Arts Awards “2007 Best Arts / Entrepreneur Partnership” as a result of their commitment to the arts through creative partnerships. The hotel also supports more than 17 organizations in the community, including ALS Society of BC, BC Lions Charity Golf Classic (Make-A-Wish Foundation), BC Lions Orange Helmet Awards, Chutzpah! Festival, DanceHouse, Jewish Book Festival, KidSport BC (Klicks For Kids), MusicFest Vancouver (formerly Festival Vancouver), Nancy Greene Corporate Challenge Ski Race, Pacific Theatre, Stand Up For Mental Health, The Word On The Street, Tony Proudfoot Fund, Vancouver Creative Music Institute (part of Vancouver International Jazz Festival), Vancouver East Cultural Centre, and The Variety Show Of Hearts Telethon.
