Kitchen wisdom at the YWCA Hotel
Stirring up home cooking and new friendships in YWCA Hotel’s communal kitchens.
Every day around 6:00 pm, the YWCA Hotel’s kitchens come alive with the sound of many languages and the aroma of different dishes from around the world.
“My wife and I use the seventh-floor kitchen regularly,” says Umar, a hotel guest from Pakistan. For the couple, the kitchen is not just about cooking food, it’s also a relaxing gathering place.
“The best thing about the kitchen is we get to make a lot of new friends – talking to people from different countries and sharing our stories and experiences.”
YWCA Hotel guests have access to three large and two small kitchens as well as pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. Every guest room also comes equipped with a small fridge.
“We always look for a hotel with a kitchen facility,” says Portia and Matthew from Manchester, England. “We love to cook our own food so having access to a kitchen is important for us.”
Last year almost 18,000 guests stayed at the YWCA Hotel. Many were repeat guests who enjoy the hotel’s affordable rates, central location and friendly staff. They also like the fact that the hotel is a social enterprise and all of its proceeds support YWCA Metro Vancouver community programs.
Next time your friends and relatives come to Vancouver, let them know about our hotel located at 733 Beatty, off Robson Street. It’s “worth checking into.”
