CANADIAN
PACIFIC
"Follow the birds" to Canada's Evergreen Playground . . . Vancouver, on the
mainland . . . Victoria, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Here is every
vacation appeal—climate and recreation, in an ideal setting. Tempered by mild
ocean breezes and the warm Japanese Current rolling onward from Asia, the
climate of Vancouver and Victoria is subject neither to extremes of heat nor
cold . . . sometimes roses bloom at Christmas! Majestic snow-tipped mountains
form Vancouver's picturesque background, while Victoria's charming English
beauty is heightened by Little Saanich Mountain and the blue-tinted Sooke
Hills. Here, bathed in glorious sunshine, golf is played throughout the year on
beautiful sporting courses, and other so-called summer sports are really year-
round pursuits. The other recreational attractions include: tennis, riding, hiking,
motoring along splendid roads amid majestic scenery, motor-boating, canoeing,
fine bathing, adventurous mountain climbing, steamer excursions through inland
and coastal waterways, and finally, fishing and hunting in the fishing waters and
game haunts to which Vancouver and Victoria are the natural gateways.

Printed in Canada,   1936. HOTEL VANCOUVER, VANCOUVER
The Hotel Vancouver is an imposing modern hostelry
of fireproof construction throughout. Commandingly
situated on Granville Street, at Georgia, the Hotel
Vancouver overlooks the Strait of Georgia, and is one-
third of a mile distant from the Canadian Pacific station
and docks. The high standard of its appointments and
service is unsurpassed among hotels on the North
Pacific Coast.
521 comfortable guest rooms, majority with bath . . .
brilliant ball room . . . public and private dining rooms
. . . Spanish Grill Room . . . seven public rooms available for convention purposes . . . and other modern
facilities, including railway and steamship ticket
office, render the Hotel Vancouver pre-eminent as a
centre of the business and social life of the district,
and admirably suited to cater to the needs of the
growing metropolis of Vancouver. A distinctive feature
is the Roof Garden ... a delightful, trellised retreat
from which a magnificent view unfolds of Vancouver
and its environs.
The Hotel Vancouver appropriately bears the name
of Captain George Vancouver, that intrepid explorer
commissioned by the British Government in 1792 to
take formal possession of the territory. Captain Vancouver, too, was impressed by the beauties of this
glorious region, and wrote thus in his journal: "To
describe the beauties of the region will, on some future
occasion, be a very grateful task to the pen of a skilful
panegyrist. The serenity of the climate, the innumerable pleasing landscapes and the abundant fertility
that unassisted Nature puts forth, require only to be
nourished by the industry of man, with villages, mansions, cottages and other buildings, to render it the
most lovely country that can be imagined." The Hotel
Vancouver is truly a "mansion" as envisioned by
Captain Vancouver, and it and other products of "the
industry of man" have rendered Canada's Evergreen
Playground the "most lovely country that can be
imagined," in fulfilment of the brave Captain's prophetic statement.
EMPRESS HOTEL, VICTORIA
The Empress Hotel, one of the Pacific Coast's most
charming hotels, is situated in a beautiful garden that
fronts on the placid waters of Victoria's Inner Harbour.
It is of fireproof construction throughout, and its large
public and private rooms are the ultimate in comfort
and good taste.
The Empress has many attractions, including . . .
570 commodious guest rooms, majority with bath;
Crystal Ball Room, public and private dining rooms,
Tudor Grill Room, and ample facilities for conventions.
Unique features are: the Conservatory, with its fountain playing amid masses of exotic blooms; and the
nearby Crystal Garden, with its glass-enclosed swim
ming pool, palm-bordered promenades, warm saltwater bathing, Turkish and steam baths, hot sea-water
baths, Swedish and electric massage.
Holiday at the Empress Hotel! A joyous welcome
always awaits you: whether your vacation be during the
ideal spring, summer or autumn seasons; for the Old
English Yuletide Festivities over Christmas-New Year;
or to enter in the Annual Winter Golf Tournament held
in February on picturesque golf courses for the Sir
Edward Beatty Challenge Cup. During the tournament
gala dinner dancing and entertainment hold sway at
the Empress, and are climaxed by the presentation of
prizes at a Grand Ball on the closing night.
