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.

Lovely hotel situated right opposite the vancouver cruise terminal. A very warm welcome at reception after a long flight from the UK. Receptionist was lovely and got us a room with a view overlooking the waterfront. The room was excellent with a very comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. The rooftop garden and swimming pool area is really a treat right in the middle of a busy area. Staff are really knowledgeable when asking for information regarding eating out .

We stay at the Waterfront Property several times a year. For this short stay, we were located in a gold corner room. The hospitality Fernando offered us during the stay was outstanding, along with the staff at the Gold Lounge and the Valet/Bellman staffs. We had a late Dinner at ARC and our server provided us an amazing service. We ate at ARC many many times, and anyone must try the Bottomless Brunch on Sundays. Very good. We will definitely return again. Thank you all. Read less

The Fairmont Hotels in Vancouver are all excellent. Every hotel employee at the waterfront we dealt with were professional, knowledgeable and hospitable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Arc food and cocktails were what you would expect from a Fairmont and the service both times, was excellent. Night and day from our recent Hilton experience.
