Finding Paradise: How to get to the Wedgewood Hotel and Spa

If you are flying in to Vancouver and intend to go straight to the hotel, you’re in for a pretty quick drive. Simple head north, passing through Grant McConachie Way and the Arthur Laing Bridge before taking Granville Street North. You will have to pass through Granville Street Bridge, as well. Take the Seymour exit and turn left at Smithe, and then take a right at Hornby. Finding the hotel should be a breeze.

If you intend to drive from U.S. territory, though, you’ll be passing Seattle Washington. You will have to take Interstate 5 and take the Granville Bridge from 99. From then on, it should be easy to spot the Seymour exit and proceed as would if you were coming from the airport. Photos provided by Hotel.

On the other hand, if you are already in British Columbia, you will simply have to drive on Highway 1 and follow the road signs leadig to Vancouver City Center. These will point you to a west exit on 1st Avenue. Take a right on Quebec Street and then turn right again on Smithe. You can then proceed as described above.
