It was aviator Anne Morrow Lindbergh who said, "I feel we are all islands—in a common sea." But there's nothing common about this week's Escape to Granville Island Hotel, a stunning boutique hotel nestled on the waterfront edge of its eponymous island, directly across from downtown Vancouver.

With this week's Escape, you'll get a one-night stay for two in a Standard Room in October 2012 ($189) or in May, June, or September 2012 ($241).

You'll also get breakfast for two at the Dockside Restaurant (a Georgia Straight 2012 Golden Plates Readers' Choice winner), two tickets to an improv show at the Vancouver TheatreSports League, a voucher for $20 to spend at Calixica Holistic Spa Boutique, a flight of six craft beers with the purchase of an appetizer at Dockside Restaurant, and free overnight parking.

Upon arrival, you'll be greeted with deluxe accommodations in a Standard Room with hypnotic views of the waterfront, Granville Island, or the park. After you've soaked in the loveliness of your unique abode (no two rooms are alike), take your time exploring the island's artful sites: Check out the Public Market for handmade crafts (and sample sumptuous cheeses and other culinary delights) before relaxing by the water's edge, watching the buskers perform.

Let the concierge ignite your adventuresome spirit with hourly bike rentals—perfect for sightseeing from the seawall. And be sure not to miss the city's very own 2010 Olympic Village or picturesque Stanley Park.

Prepare to land at Dockside Restaurant, before savoring the soy- and ginger-marinated sable dish (served with steamed shrimp and scallop dumplings and miso-poppyseed mustard aioli) or nine-hour roasted prime rib. The idyllic spot is a favorite of Frommer's, which hails its craft brews as must-sips before leaving the island—perfect, since your Escape includes a round of six tasters.

Isn't it time to take flight and see a bold new world? We think so, too.

  • "The exterior of this offbeat water's-edge building is part Mission style, part industrial: The result is modern and sophisticated."
