From Grassroots to Global with Charisma & Grit
How We Got Here & Where Are We Going
The driving impulse behind Paradox Hotels began in 2017 with a team of experienced hoteliers seeking to redefine the hospitality industry’s approach to luxury-lifestyle offerings. Using more than 50 years of collective experience, the group began to lay the foundation for a new generation of luxury hotels.
Inspired by the unexpected yet curiously synchronistic juxtaposition of their identities and multifaceted backgrounds, a new hotel concept --distinctive from the status quo of luxury-lifestyle brands and traditional hospitality norms-- emerged.
The Paradox Hotel identity is defined by an unwavering commitment to first-class hospitality that offers guests immersive experiences through authentic, cultured, and witty service that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Our collective vision is to create a hospitality brand that reflects the true local spirit of Vancouver, Canada -- the city that started it all; where world-class luxury and laid-back lifestyles go hand-in-hand.
Paradox Hotels offer an immersive experience that celebrates individuality, authentic human connections, and vibrant local cultures.
• Cultured yet approachable
• Sophisticated yet street-smart
• Intrinsically refined, and unabashedly unconventional
We resonate with authenticity | Real Vibes Only
An Old-school Approach For a New Era of Hospitality
Our purpose, and the driving force behind our approach, is to provide guests with a hospitality experience that forms lasting memories and tangible moments that resonate with their unique stories and enrich their lives long after they check out.
Staying true to our foundational beliefs in placing authentic human-to-human relationships first through over-the-top generosity and authentic human-to-human connections, Paradox Hotel Group is committed to a new approach to hospitality, one that celebrates the beautiful synchronicity of unique identities, individual stories and immersive localities steeped in vibrant cultures.
As a brand, we promise to do everything possible within our means to satisfy our guests with an experience that exceeds normalities and creates memories of imaginative and surprising lifestyle experiences in the city you’re visiting.
We strive to think of others' needs above our own, to our staff and colleagues and especially our guests'. We're slow to judge, quick to forgive. This also means we will put aside our pride, finances, and needs to reconcile with and win the hearts of each other and our guests. (It’s not thinking of yourself as less, but thinking about yourself less)
In all aspects of our lives, we strive to demonstrate honesty, reliability, and responsibility, even when it's a difficult choice. In turn, this forms a pillar for our character that is foundational to a long-lasting relationship with each other and our guests.
We don't take ourselves too seriously; we're collectively eclectic, eccentric, and a little bit weird. We strive to remain non-judgemental and non-pretentious but still stylish, always putting ourselves in the shoes of others.
Whenever we can, we will inject fun, silliness, and surprise into the everyday. We go above and beyond to learn something about each other and our guests so that we can give them something that’s not only imaginative, spontaneous, surprising, and fun but something deeply meaningful and personal to their unique personalities.
