About The Observatory Hotel

A consistent favourite among the more well-heeled visitors to the city, the service-oriented Observatory has the feel, and indeed some of the looks, of a typical European grand hotel. Tones are hushed as the army of staff attend to every need and desire of the guest. The furniture is mainly rich mahogany with a mass of antiques and lush drapes, and there is almost a gentleman’s club feel to some of the public rooms. The hotel is owned by Orient-Express and its refined elegance has garnered a mass of awards. Rooms boast original artworks, plus marble bathrooms, CD players hidden away in antique armoires and high-speed internet points. Most rooms have views of Walsh Bay or Observatory Hill. The Observatory’s renowned spa, which comes with an indoor pool complete with a sparkling night-sky ceiling, is quite something; it offfers deluxe treatments by Payot and La Prairie. Bar.
