Fairmont Waterfront

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel

The location, with coastal mountains behind and the spectacular harbour in front, is wonderful. This is emphasised by the floor-to-ceiling picture windows in every guest room. Enjoy a drink in the ARC Bar before savouring a meal at the ARC Restaurant. Or if you fancy a taste of what Downtown Vancouver has to offer, there is a good choice of restaurants a walking distance away. There's also a health club which offers massage services, a fully-equipped gym and a heated outdoor pool if you fancy a dip.

I've had the good fortune to stay at several Fairmont hotels in the US, Canada & Bermuda. While I've always had a nice stay, I must say the staff at this particular property take customer service to a whole new level. The restaurant staff was efficient, informative and funny. The Concierge staff made great suggestions and gave honest opinions. The front desk was ever helpful and the cleaning staff were fantastic. The only drawback, in my opinion, is that they don't have a Fairmont Store on-site. But that's not a reason to take away a star. Our room was spacious and had a view of the busy waterfront. We only had breakfast at their restaurant. It was a buffett and quite good. Read less

I LOVED my stay here. Everything was superb from beginning to end. I splurged for a room on the Fairmont Gold floor and, while pricey, was an experience. The check-in was very warm and welcoming, and right from opening my room door I knew I was in for a treat. The room optics were wonderful - the view was fantastic, looking out onto the harbour and waterfront. The binoculars on the desk were a really nice touch and very helpful in watching the seals and eagles at play. The room itself was luxurious, with lots of space to move around and relax and take in all that gorgeous scenery. The bed was very comfortable and dressed with premium linens; really nice bathroom with a very roomy shower and lovely Le Labo bath amenities. The Gold Floor concierge and amenities were wonderful; very accommodating and helpful and really adding to the sense of specialness. The breakfast, snacks and goodies in the lounge (which are included in the price of the room) were very nice, and the view from the terrace terrific. You can't beat the hotel's location - right downtown, on the waterfront, within walking distance of tons of businesses, restaurants, and amenities. This wasn't and inexpensive stay, but for a splurge this sure made for a memorable experience. Read less

Great place to stay. We were going on a Disney Cruise and the hotel is right across from the port of Vancouver. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The room was comfortable, we were only there one night.

This hotel was fabulous! It was very clean and modern. The location of the hotel is outstanding. The cruise port is right across the street along with shops and restaurants along the seawall. There is even a food court in the lower level. You are within 2 blocks from train station, shopping mall and a ton of restaurants.
