Virgin Holidays View
A veritable castle in the heart of the city, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is an impeccable symbol of indulgence and pedigree. Offering the luxury and services of a world-class hotel, all guest rooms are beautifully furnished with every attention to detail observed. Facilities include a state-of-the-art health club, accessible 24-hours a day, with indoor heated swimming pool, a Jacuzzi and saunas. Pilates and Yoga classes are available at the Sitka Studios or treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering at the Absolute Spa. There’s also some prime shopping in the lobby with designers stores selling plenty to tempt you! Although you’re close to plenty of restaurants and bars in the downtown area, the Fairmont’s very own Griffins is unbeatable, voted one of the ‘best hotel’ restaurants in Canada. Lavish buffet-style offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner will tantalise your taste buds, featuring only the best local produce from land and sea. There is also an a la carte menu should you prefer and Sunday Brunch, a tradition that began in the 1900s and continues to be embraced at the Fairmont to this very day. Another great tradition is afternoon tea, served daily in the 900 West Lounge – for a special occasion, add a glass of champagne or, if the kids want to tag along, childish delights include Bubblegum Tea, fresh strawberries and cream and a giant chocolate chip cookie! For hand-crafted cocktails and award-winning martinis later in the day head back to the 900 West Lounge, which also features live jazz music to set the scene perfectly!
