Vancouver Art Gallery
Looking for an interesting activity on a rainy day? Why not improve your knowledge by visiting an art museum?! Just a 15 minute walk/or a 5 minute complimentary shuttle ride from the Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Downtown Vancouver is the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG), which offers different rotating modern art exhibitions. Go on a Tuesday after 5:00pm and Entrance is FREE with donation! The current exhibition is the fascinating Grand Hotel and Art Spiegelman CO-MIX exhibits! http://vanartgallery.bc.ca/the_exhibitions/exhibit_grand_hotel.html
As interns at the Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Downtown VAncouver, it was a lucky hit that the current exhibition matched our career of interest. The main theme to this exhibition is: “Everyone has a hotel story.” The exhibit is filled with stories of celebrities and regular people’s funny, inspiring, and tragic happenings that had occurred whilst their stays in various hotels. We got to experience the evolution of the hospitality industry all around the world by exploring the different styles of serving, architecture, and guest services. Overall, It was a very enjoyable way to spend a rainy Vancouver evening, especially when it’s paid by donation.
