Fairmont Waterfront

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel

The location, with coastal mountains behind and the spectacular harbour in front, is wonderful. This is emphasised by the floor-to-ceiling picture windows in every guest room. Enjoy a drink in the ARC Bar before savouring a meal at the ARC Restaurant. Or if you fancy a taste of what Downtown Vancouver has to offer, there is a good choice of restaurants a walking distance away. There's also a health club which offers massage services, a fully-equipped gym and a heated outdoor pool if you fancy a dip.

I booked here with a gift certificate to celebrate my birthday back back in February. I emailed them beforehand to request for an early check-in as I wanted to get ready in the room before my boyfriend took me out for dinner and to my surprise, they were able to accommodate the early check-in. David from front desk was the one who checked me in and he made engaging friendly conversation. I got into my room and they had a birthday cake for me with a card. It was so delicious! I had a lovely city view room. When I got back from dinner, I came back to the room with turndown service with birthday decorations from housekeeping. They also made a lovely note for me wishing me again a happy birthday. I felt so special. Although I was only able to enjoy 1 night in the hotel, I will definitely come back here again. My experience felt personalized and I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends! Read less

Truly a luxurious experience. From check in to check out my experience was absolutely wonderful. I requested water to be brought to my room, they brought me chocolate covered strawberries, macaroons and 6 bottles of water. I can't wait to come back!!

Stayed on the Gold Floor and based upon my past experience with Fairmont my expectations were high but my experience was lacking. Gold floor lounge food was just okay. Beds weren’t as comfortable. One of the mattresses in our room was really bad resulting in a poor experience.
