Opus Hotel has the right package for you this pride, and it’s a big one.

By Joshua Langston

To say that this has been one of the biggest and if not most important Pride months in history, would be an understatement. We finally proved that #lovewins with the supreme court ruling that gay marriage is a constitutional right. The overwhelming amount of support from brands, companies, celebrities and from LGBT allies has been extraordinary. The Pride celebrations around the world so far, have been a reflection of this and a celebration of the long fought battle for marriage equality.

With Vancouver’s gay pride weekend approaching quickly, we wanted to make sure you were well prepared. OPUS Hotel is offering a package for pride weekend, and they really have thought of everything.

“We don’t do beige at OPUS Hotel,” says Nicholas Gandossi, General Manager at OPUS Hotel. “But we do roll out the rainbow carpet for all of our guests and we are looking forward to offering a tempting package for the Pride weekend.”

And really who doesn’t enjoy a big tempting package. This year OPUS is offering their Bare Necessities Package, which will get you just about everything you will need for a fantastic pride weekend.


The Package includes an overnight stay at The OPUS Hotel in the rainbow room of your choice and a welcome glass of bubbly [We’re off to a good start]. Opus Hotel also has put together a Pride Survival guide to ensure a fun and safe weekend. In the Pride survival kit there is protection “from the sun or otherwise”, OPUS Hotel’s famous “intimacy kit” and waxing treatments for two at Stripped Wax Bar in Yaletown. After your “Balls out” treatment (for men) or “Sweet Spot” treatment (for women) you get to take home hygene spray to keep things cool and fresh down there.
