For the weary traveler, Vancouver’s greatest welcome comes in the form of rosé. I was handed a chilled pour upon check-in at OPUS, a 96-room boutique hotel in the city’s trendy Yaletown neighborhood, in early March.
“Once you’re settled, grab a bike and head to Stanley Park,” Matthew Hui, the hotel’s front office manager, advised me as he handed me the room key, referring to the grassy waterside reserve a few blocks from the property. He pointed to two Norco cruiser bikes neatly set against the lobby wall. I promised that I would.
