Reviewed 2 December 2013

My husband surprised me with a night at the Fairmont Pacific Rim to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the Fairmont Gold upgrade when we stayed at the Empress in Victoria two years ago, so he made sure to book a Fairmont Gold room again this time. We had a beautiful room with a king sized bed and large bathroom with a jet tub (the jet tub makes all the difference!). I loved the modern decor and features, where you can control the lighting and drapes with a touch of a fingertip. There was a separate walk-in closet with a large safe, and little comforting amenities like plush robes, and his and her's cushy slippers (where the women's slippers are actually appropriately sized for smaller feet!). Upgrading to a Fairmont Gold room is an experience in itself. We were promptly greeted from the moment we stepped out of our car, and right after the quick check-in, one of the hotel staff escorted us to our room and gave us a tour of the place. The Fairmont Gold Lounge has an amazing selection of exquisite teas, coffee, and snacks like cookies (best ginger molasses cookies ever!) and assorted nuts that are available anytime during the day. Canapes are served from 5-7pm each evening, and we originally had dinner reservations that evening but we were so stuffed from the appies at the Gold Lounge that we didn't end up going out for dinner! From 8-9pm there are desserts available, and when we stayed there we enjoyed some delicious mini mango cheesecake bites on a stick and mini fruit tarts, as well as fresh fruit. The hot buffet breakfast was also amazing, where the highlight for me was the housemade hazelnut chocolate spread and macadamia nut butter, which tastes absolutely divine on one of their fresh baked croissants! If you are a foodie and a tea lover like I am, Fairmont Gold is well worth the upgrade. This was a staycation night for us, as we are locals in the city, but having it at the Fairmont made our anniversary celebration all the more special. I am looking forward to my next stay at another Fairmont!!

A hotel stay really does not get better than this. Excellent location, kind and attentive staff, modern and accommodating ambience. Have stayed here three times this year and every stay was sublime. Why would one you choose anywhere else?

We stay here often because the staff is so fantastic. We always feel like we are treated like family when we arrive and through tout our stay. The hotel is beautiful, the food is fantastic and the room feels like you are staying in a spa. Can't wait til our next visit!!!

It is without doubt a very impressive hotel, superbly appointed, stunning decor & very helpful professional staff.
We stayed 6 nights at the end of our holiday, we had a standard room but it had a large bathroom, with full size bath & shower. There was even a TV screen in the mirror!
The service was excellent, they even cleaned my shoes for free.
The only area of issue is the room is controlled electronically, from either an iPad or soft touch pads. Maybe it just adds to the experience.

Super location of Vancouver, with amazing view over the Vancouver harbour. The staff is very professional in all aspects. Great F&B choices wih different themes. Always my favourite lace when being in town.

Booked a suite for an anniversary. Stayed the weekend in a suite overlooking the Coal Harbour. Standing on the balcony both during the day and evening drew different experiences. During the day, being able to see all of the harbour and the North Shore mountains and all of the bee hive of activity between the two imparted the buzz of the city. At night, the lights of the various buildings brings out a different charm. Amazing experience. Every amenity I could have imagined and then some were installed in the suite. Nice touch having a television built into the washroom mirror. Absolutely pampered. To top it off, the staff were absolutely top notch.

The Pacific Rim is elegant understated, thoroughly modern and very comfortable. On our second stay there recently, we got a room overlooking the harbour and mountains. The late afternoon light was spectacular.

Room Tip: Spend a few dollars more to get a harbour view room on an upper floor-- really inspiring!
