Griffins


The gargoyles and griffins are prominent features on the Hotel Vancouver. I remember teachers bringing them to our attention when I was in high school.

And I haven't remembered much from high school.



There are two or three restaurants in the hotel. The restaurant most frequented by us 'commoners' is called Griffins.

Fascinating and beautiful roof line. I like the color too. Still not sure about gargoyles though.

Just make sure when you dine at Griffins that you do not find any bat-wings or fangs in your entrée.

Gargoyles and Griffins are very good to have on buildings...they keep the bad spirits away!!!

That's what they told us in high school Kathryn. :-)

I don't know about now, but back in the day this was where the Queen would stay when she visited Vancouver. So you don't want to be taking chances with evil spirits.
