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.

After a horrid experience at the JW Marriott on our return trip from a Disney Alaska cruise we stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront. The proximity to the cruise ship terminal is the main attraction of this hotel as it is located right across the street from the terminal. We had a room that opened up to a garden balcony. How wonderful to have this little oasis in the middle of the city. Breakfast in the room, bath robes delivered for our kiddos - let’s just say the Fairmont knows how to spoil there guests. Very happy with our stay. Read less

I’ve been to all Fairmont properties in Vancouver (except the one by the airport). This one and Fairmont Pacific Rim are my favourite, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver was a bit of a let-down. As for this hotel, the location’s good. It’s right downtown. Apart from the good sea view and breakfast, nothing else was too special.
