The massage was good but the ambience of the place is sorely lacking. Their "lounge" area looks more like a kitchen area and the "private" lounge area has 6 very comfy loungers but absolutely no thought went into the decoration as I don't believe there is any. One of our party came later than the rest so when she walked... More

I received a gift card for a massage and a facial at the Absolute Spa. The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver location seemed a nice location to go as they say they are #1 spa in Canada. I used my gift card on two separate visits 2 months apart. I must say I live in Vancouver and I regularly get massage and... More

In general, however, I found that this spa really lacks ambience and pampering. It's the same price point as the top spas in Vancouver so I wouldn't come here expecting an overall spa experience. Rather, the services are a better reason to be visiting as they pretty much do everything here. I actually would come back for a hydro facial.

I had the pleasure of several Massages, Manicures, Pedicures, Body Scrubs, Micro Dermabrasion and Facials during my stay in Vancouver, I met the staff in 2014 on my first trip to Canada and it was wonderful to catch up with them again for more delightful and relaxing treatments. Special mention goes to my lovely friend and Beautician Kathy Zarrabi, a... More

Spent an afternoon at this spa recently with a girlfriend that I do 'spa days' with. This was our first time there. We referred to their website for information regarding facility and services. Website boasts being voted best spa 70 times, which I find quite surprising. I had 3 treatments ... 1/2 hr scrub, 1 1/2 hour massage, and a... More

My husband and I had a couples massage. The ambiance was nice and they were very personable. My husband loved his, and I was satisfied with mine. Not as pampering as some other hotel spas, but overall, not a bad experience.

I stayed at this hotel just last week and had two great blowouts here! They are very quick and highly professional. Next time I'm back in Vancouver I will be making more appointments at Absolute Spa.

I had a massage booked here for me as a surprise, and didn't know what to expect as I've never been to this hotel. Definitely plush, and loved the private eucalyptus steam you can have before your treatment. They were open late which was a huge plus, and I liked the details like the complimentary banana bread and yogurt afterward.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
