I stayed at the FPR for a business convention. Every person I came into contact was exceptional in their cheerfulness and sincerity in wanting my stay to be outstanding. There is a true desire to give great service there. The accommodations were superb, everything is first-class and immaculate.

This is one of the best hotels in the city. The place can get very busy in the lobby but the spa fixes that easily. Rooms are modern and very comfortable. The view of the mountains is superb. I found that the food in the lobby sushi bar to be of a very high quality.

The best! Impeccable service, with friendly staff who go above and beyond. The rooms are beautiful with amazing views. Super dog friendly, my pup had a great time. :) And the vinyl collection in the suite was an unexpected bonus. Can't wait until next time!

We stay at this hotel fairly frequently, and we have generally enjoyed the Gold floor service and amenities. We normally book the signature ofuro harbor view gold room when we come here and have had no issues with the service. However, this time, our experience was quite different. We felt that the Gold floor over Mother's day weekend was severely understaffed and most of the staff appear new. We had just stayed at the hotel in late February when they had the great staff that we know and love. The new Gold floor management did not show the same enthusiasm as the staff that we are accustomed to and fell below our expectations. We had breakfast on Sunday and no staff came by to ask if we needed anything and no friendly chitchat either. We were simply ignored. On the last day, we requested late check out to use our Acor Gold member benefits, but the new Fairmont Gold manager Sara Hawileh gave us half an hour claiming that the hotel was "fully committed" when we could still find and book our Gold signature harbor view Ofuro room right there and then online. We felt that she was very insincere and did not genuinely want to help us, and quite frankly a half an hour extension is insulting when there are several vacancies when we looked online, so we opted to check out at noon instead. Perhaps she has no idea we were such frequent guests and gave us a standard response. As a soon-to-be platinum Acor hotel member, we both felt very disappointed as the membership level appeared to have meant nothing and our continued loyalty to the Fairmont Pacific Rim Gold floor was simply overlooked. Upon check-out, we requested access to the gold floor and the spa. However, the card key that was given to us could access neither. Thankfully, spa receptionists recognized us as frequent Gold floor guests and gave us card keys to access both the spa and the Gold lounge. The spa facilities are top notch and this encounter was easily the highlight of our stay. We will certainly return for treatments. All in all, this was a very disappointing stay, but I hope this is just a one-off as we have grown to love Pacific Rim. As a result of this experience, we might consider some other alternatives when we go back to Vancouver next time. Read less

I was thrilled with my room facing out at the ocean and the mountains. Room service was exceptional and the eggs for my breakfast in room was perfect. The hotel can be very busy and a bit noisy in public areas but this is remedied quickly with a visit to their outstanding spa.
