Starwood has expanded its portfolio of hotels in
Canada with the opening of the Element Vancouver Metrotown – the

Metrotown is part of Bosa’s new Sovereign building, the tallest

President of Specialty Select Brands for Starwood. “On track to
triple its portfolio by the end of 2017, Element is resonating
with travelers who share the brand’s passion for great design and
smart, sustainable living.”

growing Burnaby business district. Home to numerous corporations
and high-tech businesses, Burnaby is a 20-minute ride from
downtown Vancouver via SkyTrain and convenient to Rogers Arena, BC

British Columbia and our Element hotel will offer healthy
amenities and a balanced lifestyle to both the business and
leisure traveler,” said Paul Gallop, Element Vancouver Metrotown
