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!

Nice staff, nice location, and nice services. Everything you need like restaurants, grocery, and shopping is just steps from the hotel. I strongly recommend this hotel either for pleasure or business.

Wonderful hotel, very central and walkable to almost everything in the downtown core! Really nice renovations that have been completed, to modernize all facilities within the hotel. Definitely recommend!

Having never been to Vancouver we chose a hotel close to everything and it did not disappoint. Our room was amazing, quite large with two queen beds to accommodate 3 of us.

Breakfast buffet was nice, not overwhelming but great quality and friendly staff. We would definitely come back! Read less

Beautiful hotel in a great location. The room we had was a bit on the small side. If you are travelling with kids or more than 2 people, definitely upgrade to a suite or get an extra room. Booking on the website was easy, and I got a government employee discount. Check-in/check-out was hassle free. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I would… Read more

Nice hotel with nice amenities. Hotel room well appointed and comfortable. Hotel is old, so with that comes smaller rooms, smaller windows, smaller bathrooms, etc. None of this surprising when booking an older hotel. Staff all friendly and prices seemed reasonable. Hotel lacks a big lobby. As an Accor member, I had my amenities in my room when I… Read more
