The hotel

Right on the water’s edge in Vancouver’s harbour, the Fairmont Waterfront is a luxurious haven putting you in the perfect place to explore. Tickle your taste buds with fresh food in the restaurant and bar, grown on the hotel’s very own rooftop herb garden. Or head out - you’re just a short walk from the cool restaurants and breweries in Gastown. Back inside, you can take a dip in the outdoor pool or relax completely with a massage. And your room has floor-to-ceiling windows, with a dreamy view you’ll be happy to wake up to each day.

Our stay at the Fairmount was top notch. We had the most courteous and respectful hotel staff that always greeted us warmly, fulfilled requests in a timely manner, including providing us with slippers alongside our request for bathrobes which was very thoughtful. The connected lounge also provided great service with a welcoming demeanour and we never felt rushed to finish our brunch and drinks (which can be difficult to come by in pandemic days!). Thank you to everyone at the Fairmount Waterfront, you are appreciated. Read less

Really appreciated the personal touch and fresh fruit every day in my room. Everything was very clean and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect as it provided easy access to the convention centre.

I had a wonderful stay with a beautiful view of the harbor and mountains from the 23rd floor. I even had an incredible front-row view of surprise fireworks for some convention happening across the street. The concierge was very helpful in directing me to some beautiful parks for hiking in the evening that was not touristy or typical. I doubt I… Read more
I had a wonderful stay with a beautiful view of the harbor and mountains from the 23rd floor. I even had an incredible front-row view of surprise fireworks for some convention happening across the street. The concierge was very helpful in directing me to some beautiful parks for hiking in the evening that was not touristy or typical. I doubt I would have found them on my own, but they were exactly what I was seeking. No valet parking surprised me, but it was simple enough to find my way to the garage and the bellman was gracious enough to watch my car while I checked in. Menu options for the hotel room service menu did not offer what I was seeking, but I found other options through Uber Eats for delivery. Overall a wonderful stay- I will be back on my next business trip to Vancouver. Read less

I reserved a signature room with 2 double beds. The room that I booked has a renovated bathroom which was the reason I chose this hotel! But when I arrived at the hotel at 11:30 pm, I realized that they don't have the room available and they didn't say anything! After I visit the room I found it out! I asked them to give me the room I booked,… Read more

I asked them to give me the room I booked, first they said because you reserved on a third party! then they changed their idea to " we don't have available room" and just offer me a discount for the same night! not even an upgrade! If they won't change my room tomorrow to the one I booked (as they said ), I won't stay in this smelly room! I'm so sorry for Fairmont 5 stars hotel!!! Read less

I was downtown for a conference, I arrived early to see if they might have a room available, and they not only had one available but gave me an upgrade to a water view room.

I was downtown for a conference, I arrived early to see if they might have a room available, and they not only had one available but gave me an upgrade to a water view room. The location was great, the room was clean, I did not hear my neighbours & rarely heard people walking down the hallway. Starbucks was across the street, which was great, I did a mobile order as I left my room and it was ready when I got there. The weather was really nice after the conference, so I was able to do some walking along the water. It was quite busy in the area during the day with 3 cruise ships in, so many tourists, but in the evening, was very quiet. NOTES FOR FOR TOURISTS: good location; reasonable cost; near the water; the sea planes; a short stroll to Stanley Park; near to the Vancouver Conference Centre; good restaurants; across from Canada Place & I noticed a stop for the Hop on Hop Off Bus. It was about a 5-10 minute walk to Pacific Centre, Robson Street and Granville Street. Read less
