Good day! You may take the 620 bus from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal to Bridgeport Skytrain Station (approx 35 mins), and take the Canada Line Skytrain from Brideport Station to Waterfront Station (approx 18 mins). Head northwest on W Cordova St toward Granville St. Turn right onto Howe St and a slight left onto Canada Pl. It's approximately a 4-minute walk from Waterfront Station. Thank you.

I would beg to differ. Rather than an eyesore, the western red cedar cabin style ‘hut’ is emblematic of the west coast, Vancouver and The Waterfront in terms of materials, style and location across from the harbour. I was hoping that it was a new First Nations influenced gift shop, a place for the mascot dog, or storage for more BMW bicycles to better explore the beautiful city. If you’re interested in a more urban piece outside a Fairmont, try a block away at the Fairmont Pacific Rim with its Porsche Panamera parked in the water feature outside. Cheers.

"Opt for the Gold Key floors, costs more but definitely worth it."
"Rooms with a harbour view are well worth the extra spend."
"Rooms overlooking the water are great for watching the cruise ships come in and the upper floors have great views."
"Get a room with a view! worth the extra money."
"Gold Floor gives amazing service and a great lounge to relax in."
