Luxurious $700 Million Parq Vancouver Inaugurated

The gigantic state-of-art building extends over 775,000-square-feet  and boasts two upscale hotels, the Douglass and the JW Marriott.

The much-praised Parq Vancouver finally opened its doors to the public on September 29, 2017, after more than two years of laborious construction and seven years of preparations and planning.

The investors of Parq Holdings Limited Partnership consider it the greatest private property in British Colombia, located on the west side of B.C. Place Stadium and the north side of False Creek.

“This entertainment district, the stadium district, as we know it will be changed. Customers coming for any one of the three sports teams or events at the stadium will have an elevated experience. I think this project is much more about tourism than anything else,” co-founder of Paragon Gaming Scott Menke stated.

Hundreds of Rooms and Suites

The gigantic state-of-art building extends over 775,000-square-feet  and also boasts two upscale hotels, the Douglass and the JW Marriott, which are both governed by Marriott International Inc.

The Douglass Hotel features 178 rooms and 10 suites and boasts a replica of a Douglas lobby bar. On the other hand, JW Marriott Parq Vancouver has a capacity of 281 rooms and 44 suites. The latter also features a two-floor villa and an extravagant 10,000 square foot Spa on the 17th floor along with a massive fitness studio.

An impressive outdoor park, situated on the sixth floor links the two hotels and contributes to the oasis feel of the whole development.

Try Your Luck at Edgewater Casino

Guests will also have an opportunity to try their luck at the Edgewater Casino, which has been relocated here as well. What makes the casino stand out is the fact that it is fashioned in such a way to allow natural light, thanks to the translucent floor-to-ceiling windows.

Other gaming facilities which the clients can delight in include 75 gaming tables with blackjack, craps, baccarat, roulette, poker, and Sic Bo, paired with a poker room, a wide range of slot machines and 11 posh salons where you can enjoy a unique, private gaming experience, that involves lounge dining, casino cage and all-inclusive VIP hosts.

Extending over 62,000 square feet, Parq Vancouver’s conference space features several boardrooms, meeting rooms, and even 13 ballrooms, where the most spacious one, Parq Grand Ballroom stretches over 15,600 square feet.

The casino resort allegedly employs around 2,000 people and, according to the Daily Hive, Parq Vancouver intends to contribute $1.5 million to St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation that will be spent toward research and treatment of different addictive disorders.
