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.

We loved everything about this hotel. The view from our room was stunning. The guest service was friendly and professional - we wanted for nothing. The gym, pool and jacuzzi are great. I hope to go back to Vancouver soon and will definitely stay here!
