Here's what some of Conde Nast Traveler's readers had to say about:
The Pan Pacific Vancouver – As good as it gets in Vancouver. This
dramatically designed hotel has the perfect downtown location –
convenient to everything and with magnificent harbor vistas.
The Pan Pacific Lodge Whistler – Ideal for families, suites come with
kitchens, wood-burning fireplaces, and bathrooms with big soaking tubs.
Near the gondolas for Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, so it's easy for
skiers to come and go. Excellent staff keeps the place running like
clockwork.
The Pan Pacific San Francisco – What a location! – only one block from
Union Square. Interiors exude an attractive East-meets-West ambience.
Comparatively large rooms have spacious bathrooms with deep soaking
tubs. Butler service leaves an impression: Ring the bell and someone shows
up within minutes.
Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows – A place like no other. The open
atrium has lush greenery and streams, and large, luxe rooms have
spectacular views of the ocean and black lava beach. You never have to
lift a finger.
