The Listel Hotel is a hotel located in the downtown area of the Canadian city of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Description and operations[edit]

The hotel has 129 rooms, and is noted for its relationships with the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology, the Buschlen Mowatt Fine Arts Gallery[1] and The Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale. The hotel displays art on loan from each of these partner entities and has created a constantly evolving collection of international and First Nations art.

The hotel is a leader in sustainability in the Canadian hotel community. It was an inaugural participant in both the City of Vancouver's "Corporate Climate Leader" and Tourism Vancouver's "Tourism Ambassador for Conservation" programs. In addition to 20 solar panels and a state-of-the-art heat-capture program (reducing the hotel's natural-gas use by 30 percent annually), many water-reduction and air-quality programs and an ambitious bulk amenities program, the hotel has also been 100 percent zero-waste-to-landfill since 2011.

Forage, the hotel's restaurant, is a showcase in sustainable operations and is an active member of both the Green Table Network and the Vancouver Aquarium's Ocean Wise seafood program. The restaurant's small-plate menu is locally sourced.
