Located on Robson Street, the Blue Horizon boasts some of the most spectacular views of English Bay, Burrard Inlet and the city. Sitting between the financial district and Stanley Park, and only minutes away from Gastown, Chinatown, and Theatre Row on Granville Street, this hotel features first-class amenities and great service. Environmentalists will love the ninth floor – a "Green Floor." This specialized floor features energy-efficient lighting, low-flow shower heads and recycling bins. The Blue Horizon actually pulled in an award from BC Hydro in 1997, for its environment-friendly policy. With respect to the environment and health, the hotel maintains a totally smoke free policy.
