Fairmont Waterfront

Vancouver, Canada

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.

Excellent breakfast and dinner. Clean room. Would choose this property again. Read less

Stayed for two nights, one on the club floor - the room was great and the Club Floor was much larger than Vancouver Island but again a bit restricted and honour system. The second night, to our surprise, we were booked into a standard room and got a call to check out of room. This was not advised when we checked in and it was only luck on their part that we were actually in the room when they rang. The room was adequate but because of the mix up a bit of a disappointment. Checked out to continue on our Rocky Mountaineer trip. We took the Vancouver Foodie Tour and had a great time. Its not a gourmet tour but a lot of fun Read less
