Kaizen

Kaizen is an experiential hotel located in Vancouver where visitors take a journey through Gastown’s historical hidden gem in the post pandemic era. In the post pandemic era as the world opens up once again, travelers and locals will be looking for new opportunities to experience something new, unique, and memorable. Kaizen offers travelers affordable accommodation, convenience, and a distinctive experience.

By drawing inspiration from its historical roots, Kaizen gives a nod to nostalgia by weaving the past and future together. The hotel pays homage to the original hardware warehouse by using the concept of journey and reflection. Spaces will transition and change as visitors travel throughout different areas of the hotel. As visitors come, they will be reminded of their own roots and where they strive to be in the future.
