The Blossom – Female Focus Boutique Hotel

The Blossom is a boutique hotel located in downtown Vancouver that caters to young female travelers between the age of 20 to 44. The Blossom provides these travelers with a comfortable environment, soothing ambience, high-level of service, and maximum-security consideration. Inspired by the iconic flower in Vancouver, Blossom focuses on female groups by providing greater security, safety, and interaction among customers than standard hotels.

In the whole project’s design, the materials and FF&E are selected based on female preference leading to a natural and relaxed atmosphere. As soon as you access the lobby, which includes a gym, restaurant, and retail store on level 1, you will see the limited access corridor to levels 2-5; only registered guests may enter these floors. Guests of this Vancouver hotel, will have access to lockers and more common spaces to strengthen the communication between female clients.
