Vancouver's got nothing on New Westminster. As Western Canada's oldest city and British Columbia's first capital, New West, as locals call it, claims a piece of national history that neither Vancouver nor Victoria can. Okay, so Vancouver quickly usurped it as the region's major metropolis, and Victoria eventually won out as British Columbia's capital, but it's easy to see why New West was the original hot spot.

Set on the quiet banks of the Fraser River, steps from the boardwalk and near the city's historical neighborhoods, the chic and luxurious Inn at the Quay is true New West. It's also just minutes from Vancouver, named Best City in the Americas three years in a row by Condé Nast Traveler.

Take a trip to where it all began with this week's Escape: a one- ($110) or two-night ($195) stay for two in a Quay Queen Room, any day of the week between June 14 and August 31, or Fridays through Sundays and holiday Mondays between September 1 and October 8.

Two-night stays also include access to a five-dish food crawl at the boardwalk-bound River Market, plus a bottle of wine upon arrival, while one-night stays will receive a box of artisanal Hagensborg Chocolates. Both options come with ten percent discounts at a host of businesses around town.

Start your day with a cup of in-room coffee or tea. Quay Queens also feature a pillow-top mattress, a custom-art headboard, views of the river, Wi-Fi, and an LCD flat-screen, plus Cutler Salon bath products and a plush robe.

At the five-dish food crawl at River Market—whose bottom line is locally sourced, sustainably raised food—you might find yourself indulging in soulful eats at Re-Up BBQ, licking your spoon at Tre Galli Gelato Caffe, or slurping noodles at Wild Rice.

In Vancouver, pop into the clothing and jewelry boutiques lining Robson Street; take a walk over the 450-foot-long, 230-foot-high Capilano Suspension Bridge, which leads to a bounty of hiking trails; and finish the day watching the sunset on Third Beach in Stanley Park.

We take it back: Vancouver does have everything. Well, almost everything. But combined with your luxe perch at the Inn, some of the region's best local cuisine, a laid-back suburban vibe to return to, and a whole lot of British Columbia history, you'll have it all on this week's Escape.

  • "This hotel is indeed a gem in the city. Every room has a riverfront view, [is] well-equipped ... and yes, it has a balcony overlooking the river and the dock."
