“Friendly Luxury”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We are loyal Fairmont customers but this was our first time to the Pacific Rim.
From the moment we arrived at the front door we knew this was someplace special.
Jeff the doorman was so quick and likable, they even had our keys at the front door !
The room was sleek yet comfortable. We had a partial harbour room overlooking canada place. How nice to make yourself a little espresso and sit watching all the bustle around the convention centre. The italian cafe is wonderful, I would recommend the pastas and pizzas as a nice dinner in the room. What makes this hotel different is the staff. I was on a first name basis with the door/valet staff by the end of the weekend and we also got a kick out of the blond female BMW driver that gave us so many good recomendations !
Yes, this hotel is very expensive, but well worth it for a special occasion, and value added with the free bikes you can rent and rides in the hotel car. We will be back soon.

Room Tip: Try to get a harbour view (worth the upgrade fee)

My first trip to Vancouver, Canada and I couldn't have stayed at a more fantastic place. The hotel is across the street from the bay. It is also walking distance to Gastown and Robson Street for shopping. The train station is about a block away, so you can hop on and go across town in no time at all. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Vancouver. Downstairs bar can get loud on Friday & Saturday nights, but you do not hear a thing once the elevator doors close. Very courteous staff and very helpful. Only thing I could say not crazy about the nespresso makers in the room. I prefer regular coffee, but there is a wonderful coffee shop downstairs with tasty pastries.

Room Tip: We were on the 8th floor and there were no issues with noise

To keep this review plain and simple.

A 5 Star hotel, 5 star service & can't wait to stay again.
Rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean. Staff were extremely helpful and polite arranging for restaurant reservations. We also enjoyed the bar down stairs, a great spot for drinks before heading out.

My partner had arranged all of the hotel accommodations for our holiday vacation... The first hotel was the Fairmont Pacific Rim. I was certainly very happy upon our arrival! The room was very clean, modern decor and lots of little surprise toiletries! Exceptional customer service, the staff is very attentive. We also enjoyed having different dining options during our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for impeccable service and gorgeous/techy rooms!

We had our wedding ceremony in a suite on Christmas Eve and it was amazing. The technology in the room was fantastic with automatic sheers and drape controls. The room had amazing views and was comfortable and not hotel feeling at all. The customer service was impeccable and there were really nice touches such as the mini stocking on the door on Christmas morning and the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for our wedding day. They really made you feel special. The one thing that was ridiculous was the price of parking at $43 for overnight and charging $1 for each piece of cutlery, plates and wine glasses we wanted in our room but overall the stay was phenomenal.

This hotel is located in a very convenient downtown location that is walking distance to many attraction. Rooms are large and comfortable. Many conveniences in room. The service is fast, professional and efficient. Rooms, food and parking are pricey but I suppose not unexpected in a hotel of this calibre in great location. The parking space is extremely tight but I noticed his is the standard in Vancouver it seems.

Excellent Hotel and amenities. Our view over the water to mountains was a pleasure to wake to. The Cafe has great variety and friendly staff. The pool in winter is terrific.
A good stay.
Located at no 1 Canada a Place, it's a short walk to sea plane tours and transfer, all of the tourist tours, restaurants and the inner city.
