Beat the Winter Blues at Hotel BLU Vancouver

Perched on the Pacific Ocean and relatively close to the equator, Vancouver has extremely temperate winters. That means visiting Vancouver is a great way to escape the winter blues.
Experience the best of winter without the hassle of shovelling driveways.


Winter is well and truly here, and although the snow rarely falls in Vancouver that means one thing: hockey season.
The Vancouver Canucks are heating up for another season and we couldn’t be more excited. The feel at Rogers Arena is always electric, and win or lose the games are always entertaining. Vancouver supports the Canucks through ups and downs and this year will be no exception. Come feel the fire on the ice and attend some of these upcoming Canucks games at Rogers Arena!
Here are all the upcoming home games on the Rogers Arena ice!

  • Sunday, December 1: Edmonton Oilers
  • Monday, December 3: Ottawa Senators
  • Saturday, December 7: Buffalo Sabres
  • Tuesday, December 10: Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Thursday, December 12: Carolina Hurricanes

Any single one of these games is going to be a good time – find one that works for your schedule and book your trip!


You know the scene. It’s a romantic comedy set in New York, or anywhere with an outdoor skating rink, and a young couple get onto the ice tentatively, falling into each other’s arms and laughing and smiling. It’s a romantic hallmark because, well, it’s just so NICE.

Good news. You can live out that scene by going for a downtown skate in Vancouver’s own Robson Square. Located directly across from Vancouver Art Gallery, you can either skate for free by bringing your own skates, or rent a pair for a low fee! It’s a classic Vancouver experience that you have to experience.
Ironically, you can beat the winter blues in Vancouver by staying at Hotel Blu, the premier boutique stay experience in the heart of Vancouver’s upscale Yaletown district.
