Made up of two tall glass skyscrapers, the Wall Centre dominates the Vancouver cityscape. Light tubes at the pinnacle of each tower are 11m (36ft) high and lit by a single 250 watt metal halide bulb - a technology developed and patented at the University of British Columbia but now used around the world. With floor to ceiling windows, rooms on any of the 40-plus floors offer almost uninterrupted views of the ocean and mountains. The grand courtyard features waterfalls and a Roman-style, hand-laid stone driveway. Rooms can be small but each has a well-stocked refreshment centre.
