Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

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!

My trip back to B.C. was challenging to say the least but didn't expect leaving to be just as difficult! Not only is leaving my family hard but trying to get a mandatory Covid-19 test within the designated timeframe near impossible. While scrolling though the list of private labs in B.C. I clicked on FastTest, not only were the personnel efficient and kind but located right in my hotel!! I got my tests back quickly, and the friendly, gracious staff at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver made my complicated trip just that much easier. Thank you for always coming through for me! Read less

After having to extend our stay at this hotel for another few nights due to Covid restrictions in Whistler, the front desk manager Mr. Roushdy B. made us feel very welcome and comfortable. They also did a great job rectifying a small but understandable issue in our room. Thanks Roushdy and Aman for a great stay.
