West End: Open House

Property: Katherine Hepburn Penthouse, Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park, 2030 Barclay St.

Wandering the rooms of a fabulous, two-bedroom penthouse on Barclay Street in the West End, one can only imagine how much the famous actress Katharine Hepburn must have enjoyed herself during numerous stays in the suite.
Hepburn first stayed in the penthouse during a movie shoot in the early 1990s and returned each year until her death in 2003.
According to management of the apartment, the current housekeeping executive who assisted Hepburn at the time still works at the Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park and noted the actress was very polite and never had any special requests. Rumour has it members of Hepburn’s family also stayed at what is now called the Katherine Hepburn Penthouse following her death simply to see the suite she loved so much.
The luxury two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite is 1,900 square-foot with 1,700-square feet of private outdoor space on a wrap-around deck boasting a barbecue and heat lamp for year-round enjoyment. The suite has been used for sit-down dinners for up to 40 and for cocktail receptions hosting up to 100. Today, the suite is popular for small weddings, honeymooners, birthday and anniversary parties, public relations events, and travellers seeking discretion and solitude.
Today, the Katharine Hepburn Penthouse costs between $459 and $759 plus tax per night and is available for extended stays.
