In the symphony of savings, there are a number of movements — but we like to think of today’s escape as the magnum opus.

Let the OPUS Hotel Vancouver conduct your grand getaway to British Columbia from the opulent Penthouse Suite, where you get a one-night stay for two, including late checkout, martinis, breakfast, Wi-fi and a VIP chauffeur for $663.

Your opening sonata hits a high note with a martini welcome featuring signature drinks from the renowned OPUS Bar, recently voted Vancouver's most popular night spot by Zagat. Key your iPod to the Bang and Olufsen stereo in the 645-square-foot Penthouse as you take in the views of downtown Vancouver, the mountains, and False Creek from your floor-to-ceiling windows and wraparound balcony.

Your dramatically furnished seventh-floor hideaway mixes minimalist modern and baroque elements in a unique medley that garnered it a spot on Condé Nast Travel's Gold List, and prompted one distinguished guest to say, "I feel like a friend with a great sense of style who lives in a great neighborhood tossed me the keys to his place."

Spend a luxurious interlude in the oversized, jetted soaker tub or prelude dinner with a drink or two from the wet bar while reclining beside the double-sided fireplace. In the morning, you'll awake to your own rhythm with a gourmet, in-room breakfast and 2 pm checkout.

When you're ready to pick up the tempo, take in the sights of the city: the inner harbor, Stanley Park, and the beaches from your chauffeured 7-Series BMW. Then, make an overture back to the OPUS for world-class dining at One Hundred Nights restaurant, where the libretto includes duck pot pie and warm tuna niçoise in a pop-art atmosphere.

Mozart can keep his magic flute; a masterpiece like this only debuts once in a century.
