What is the status here now? The original team that ran the place left, but it is still open as hotel?

The hotel website is still up and running. Anybody been by lately?

A nice old menu with a Leeteg painting on the cover spotted on ebay.



Cool graphics on the inside.

I would like to know too. Is it still intact and will they let you in to see it. Polypop was in Van, maybe he knows. Oh Dusty Cajun, that fine menu looks just like one I didn't win on ebay a while back.

A recent find, nice matchbook cover from the Waldorf with the Polynesian Room drummer and the Menehune Banquet Rooms.




Any news out there on the status of this place?

Yes the hotel is still open.

http://www.hotelatthewaldorf.ca

And the lounges are still open for dj events most nights of the week though they sent the dj's in a spin when they went analog only. No more mp3's allowed (how lazy have these guys become?).

But the drum barstools are nowhere to be seen. When the Canadians allow me back in their country I'll check it out.

aloha, tikicoma

Picked up this oversized matchbook from the Waldorf, also featuring the drummer.



The inside of the matchbook shows an image of the feature matchsticks that were part of the matchbook. Very impressive, never seen one intact!

Also found a series on nice old photos from the Polynesian Room at the Waldorf on-line on the City of Vancouver archives.

Enjoy!

Good stuff (as usual), DC. That matchbook interior is pretty sweet.
