Can you believe, that the first known “Selfie” was taken in 1839!
It was taken by Robert Cornelius, an American photographer in 1839. The “Selfie” grew in popularity in 2010 and has exploded ever since due to the rise in camera phones and still remains a popular trend today.
We have many popular selfie spots around our hotel where hotel guests can take that all important selfie!
Here are some of the hotspots:
We are very fortunate to have Henrick Lars Sedin, signed number 33 Canuck’s jersey displayed in our lobby, alongside the elevators. Henrick serves as the Vancouver Canucks captain. This is one of the most popular back drops to many of our guest’s selfie’s.
Our in-house restaurant, the Edge Social Grille & Lounge is a popular venue for group selfies. Our most popular selfie time seems to occur around Happy Hour which runs from 4-6pm and 9-10pm every day.
Each suite comes with a private balcony, a feature exclusive to our hotel, where guests can enjoy breathtaking views of Vancouver’s enchanting city lights. The balconies provide great views of downtown Vancouver, the perfect setting for your selfie. Be careful should you select this option as no selfie is worth causing injury to oneself.
Many people take photos while they are in our fitness centre, we do not recommend people to take pictures during their workout. The safer option is to take it either before or after your workout! Our fitness centre is located on the second floor and offers a panoramic view of bustling Granville Street.
The G in the Lobby
For the more observant selfie taker with the trained eye, the one who is always looking for that exclusive selfie, the G symbol embedded in the wall of our lobby is a unique photo opportunity. The next time you are staying with us, see can you spot the G!
There is a number of other spots for your selfie’s such as the guest rooms, our signage located outside the hotel, the lobby and even inside the elevator! The next time you visit us at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville Hotel & Suites & Conference Centre feel free to share your selfie with us on our Facebook page!
