In Vancouver we stayed at a fairly new hotel called L’Hermitage. It isn’t set in a super touristy neighborhood, but was a quick walk to Yaletown or even better (in my opinion) is a just slightly longer jaunt to Gastown. This boutique hotel has a great modern style, so I photographed a few interior details from our room. Not that we’ll be back again so soon, but for those of you wondering… L’Hermitage is fully booked for the Olympics.As we were checking out, we ran into this handsome fellow. At the time, he was battling fiercely over a blue dust mop. The rather dignified man behind the front desk had a determined fighter on his hands. The harder he pulled, the more this canine competitor wanted to win!
