The location is perfect for the best part of Vancouver - the water stroll to Stanley Park and back. The service is impeccable and the live music in the restaurant creates a great ambiance. The concierge service is extremely helpful, I would like to especially commend their entire team! Thank you to the entire staff for a very nice stay.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

We stayed 5 nights/6 days at the Fairmont Waterfront--a length that is a true test for any hotel. The Fairmont Waterfront passed with flying colors on all fronts. From the kind on site reservations manager who booked us a perfect family suite for us on a high floor so we could watch the New Years Eve fireworks, to the concierge...

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and every time it has been wonderful. Staff is attentive and informative. You truly feel the 5 stars of this hotel and suddenly never want to stay any place else. My conference was down the road at the Marriott and it would have been much more convenient to stay...

We stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront for 2 nights. Our room was modern, up to date and large. The hotel is a short stroll to the main shopping area with beautiful views over the harbour. The Great Bits: Large, clean modern rooms. The Good Bits: Helpful friendly staff The Bad Bits: None.

Great location, great customer service. Loved their running club and exercise program. Breakfast was delicious, they even serve their own honey. Have a garden and use it for their dishes. Great gym, heated pool.

Fairmont hotels have a very high standard for their hotels, and the Fairmont Waterfront does not disappoint. At check in the staff were friendly, and accommodating. I asked for a room on a higher floor than I was originally given. There was not one immediately available, but I had the time to wait. Upon my return the staff had everything...

The quality of the service was as expected from a Fairmont hotel. I enjoyed my 2 night stay here and walked to everywhere including a 30-minute walk to the Aquabus terminal on Hornby St. The accessibility and variety of cuisine around the hotel was pretty amazing. The view of the water was a welcome bonus especially for business travelers.

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.
