Lovely comfortable hotel with a great location to stay when visiting Vancouver. Friendly staff who want to make your stay a pleasant as possible. The room was elegant and the bed most comfortable - slept better than I do at home.

This hotel is the gold standard of how a great hotel moves up a notch to a grand hotel. It all starts with the people and the welcome you receive and then you have the opportunity to stay in a room that has all the luxuries of home (and more). The bed is so comfortable, pillows awesome and the bathroom... More

We spent our last night in Vancouver city here, as we wanted to be right downtown and it was a fantastic experience. Just a very short walk from the train station, we got the Skytrain from the airport. I joined the Fairmont Presidents Club and it lives up to its promises. I booked online that morning and received a confirming... More

Weekend away in Vancouver with family. The Fairmont Waterfront gold floor made us to feel at home. The staff was so warm and nice. We are already planning our next visit to "Vancouver" just because of the hotel.

Great location as it is central to downtown, gas town and Stanley Park. Hotel is amazing, expected for Fairmont standards. Was surprised that complimentary wifi is not included, you'd expect this as the rooms don't come cheap...

Fairmont hotel properties offer great value with outstanding customer service. We stayed at the Fairmont in Whistler for a conference and then visited Fairmont Waterfront (Vancouver) for a quick vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both locations. The staff are over the top friendly and even the cleaning staff will stop to ask how your day is going. The... More

This hotel unfortunately goes burdened by the unavailability of something as basic internet connectivity included in their room charges - unless one is a member of their President's Club. This is not something a guest does when one does not frequently stays in hotels. It also out of line, taking into account what other 'lowlier' hotels offer. The price of... 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.
