Currently, there are nine Element hotels located across North America.
The 169-room Element Vancouver Metrotown will be located in Burnaby, B.C., in the center of metro Vancouver, close to Metropolis at Metrotown, British Columbia’s largest shopping center. This new-build construction will be the tallest tower in Burnaby and will offer 5,500 square feet of flexible meeting spaces.
