Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

Virgin rating

The hotel

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 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 Notch8 Restaurant & Bar is the ideal place to relax and watch the world pass by. Named after a train’s top speed, achieved only by the most skilled conductors, the restaurant pays homage to the hotel’s storied history and legacy as a luxury hotel along the Canadian Pacific railway. A traditional afternoon tea is also served here daily — 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!

Suite 219 Some of the lights in the room were non-functional. Furthermore, the intercom system appeared to be malfunctioning, impeding our ability to communicate with the hotel staff for assistance. Although your staff gave me a reception phone number and suggested I call directly from my mobile phone if any assistance is needed, there were 3 different instances wherein no one responded to my call for almost 20 mins and I ended up walking all the way down to the reception for small requests. The most horrifying incident occurred when we accidentally got stuck in the storage closet for almost 90 mins in the middle of the night. Because the door handle of the storage room within the suite was broken from the inside, causing my family and me to become inadvertently trapped inside for a staggering 90 minutes. The sheer terror and helplessness we experienced during this time were beyond words. My wife is still deeply traumatized by this distressing ordeal, and the emotional impact continues to linger. I raised the concern to the central reservation team who further escalated the matter to the security and housekeeping team but since my main door was closed manually from inside, they were not able to do anything and eventually after trying various alternatives to open the door, I managed to open the door with help of hanger myself.

The pillows WERE the fluffiest. The bed was super comfortable. The soaps and shower gel and lotion all smelled so good. Very clean, very beautiful. Walking distance from the waterfront and Canada place !

We love the Hotel Vancouver, which is an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, the waterfront, art museum, and Orpheum Theatre for the symphony. The decor is classic, the rooms are fairly large, and the hotel is spotless. We are always treated as welcome guests. We highly recommend it!
