Here at The Cultch, we not only want to give our patrons the best experience possible but we also want to ensure that all the artists who perform here thoroughly enjoy themselves.
Since 2001, our hotel partner Rosedale on Robson has helped us achieve this. Visiting artists, such as Ronnie Burkett or Bob Kingdom, are assured of a comfortable environment while they stay in Vancouver. Jodi Sprackman, the Director of Community Relations shared some thoughts about Rosedale’s history and its partnership with The Cultch.
Can you tell us a little bit about the Rosedale on Robson and its history?
The Rosedale is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year! We opened our doors on April 2, 1995 at the corner of Hamilton and Robson Streets even before the area became known as a haven for arts and sports enthusiasts.
As an all-suite hotel, we offer a selection of spacious one and two-bedroom suites that provide the comforts of home, including a fully equipped kitchenette and a separate living room. Artists love to stay with us because of these features, as well as our ideal location (we are in close proximity to a variety of theatres), and our friendly Guest Services Team.
Because artists tour so frequently, they really appreciate having a larger than average hotel room with a kitchen; essentially a place that feels like home.
As The Cultch’s hotel partner, is supporting the arts something that is important to you?
We’re passionate about supporting and promoting the arts in our community.
We’ve been a sponsor of a variety of cultural organizations and festivals of all sizes over the years that include dance, music, literature, comedy, and of course, theatre. We’re committed to playing a part in helping to enrich our cultural community.
Can you tell us a bit about the Rosedale’s role in supporting The Cultch? How did this partnership take shape?
The Cultch is an integral element of the arts community, and our partnership helps foster the commitment the Rosedale has to the overall promotion of culture and the arts in Vancouver. We greatly value our long-standing relationship with The Cultch; this is our 13th year as its hotel sponsor. We love welcoming The Cultch’s artists to the Rosedale!
