Wow, I have stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world. This one is spectacular. The room has an ipad that controls everything. You feel like a rock star staying at this hotel. The location and the room is fantastic.

Our family of four including two teenagers spent a three night stay while visiting Vancouver. Five stars all the way, including rooms, facility amenities and the spa. Spent every evening enjoying terrific entertainment in the lobby bar and felt better than the W Hotel in NYC. Loved the Reebok fitness gear promotional program.

Second visit back to the Pacific Rim and wow! Amazing again. We brought our dog along this time as Fairmonts are pet friendly and they had a pet bed, water dish and doggy bags waiting in our room.

Service and amenities are top notch. Complimentary BMW bikes to ride around the seawall was a huge highlight!

Our room had a beutiful view of the harbour. Everything was perfect. This is one of my favorite hotels in Vancouver. Beautiful lobby with great energy in the lounge and bar. The service by the greeters and valet parking is outstanding. You feel like a celebrity and trust me this hotel is one of the top notch choices for celebrities so don't be surprised if you have a celebrity siting when you stay here.

Location is perfect for walking around sea wall and walking to Robson Street or Canada Place. You can't go wrong booking this hotel. It's a little pricey but worth every penny for a luxury hotel.

Room Tip: Signature Suites have amazing square bath tubs with seats that face out to a beautiful view!

We spent some time deliberating which hotel to stay in, not knowing Vancouver at all before. This was one of 3 we narrowed it down to. Let me save anyone else the bother, this is the one. It has been first class in every way. Service is superb; it gets the obvious bits right, with great service from concierge, restaurants, doorman - faultless. But the subtler service makes the difference - everyone in the hotel is hugely professional, welcoming and made us feel truly at home and special guests. From turndown service, to waitresses to the drivers of the excellent fleet of white hotel BMWs. You will feel a special guest here. I have always been cynical about reviews like the one I am writing!
We chose Fairmont Gold and would highly recommend it. They helped with so many little things, such as printing maps for the next stop, booking seaplane flights, and excellent off the track as well as high dining dinner reservations. Breakfast was superb, and we looked forward to going to the Gold lounge. The little sweet treats on the way back in after dinner are another great touch.
The views and situation are unbeatable, watching the float planes take off and looking over to the mountains and across the harbour, and down on to the Olympic torch.
The rooms are spacious, and spotless And a very comfortable sleep with serious pillows.
Others have reviewed this hotel fairly - it is one of the best we have stayed in and sets a new standard for service. First class.

Room Tip: Gold floor, harbour view.

I went with my wife recently to Vancouver for a 4 day (Sunday - Wednesday) getaway. We live in Edmonton (Alberta) so the change in scenery and weather was much appreciated. I'm a President's Club member with Fairmont so I tend to stay at their properties when ever I can. After exploring everything the Pacific Rim has to offer, I can confidently say that it is an absolutely amazing hotel and a must stay if you're looking for the best.

First the service. Fairmont's service is top notch as always and they treat you incredibly well at all times. Everyone is helpful, positive and they make it clear they are there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Small things like the door attendant offering me water when I would come back from a morning run along the sea-wall is one of the many small touches we experienced daily.

The room we stayed in was impeccable. We chose a gold floor accomodation with a king bed and jacuzzi tub with a harbour view and it didn't dissapoint. The room had an untouchable view as the room seems to open up to the harbour, definitely a high point. My wife and I really enjoyed the jacuzzi. It made for a nice little hottub to end of the night looking out to the water. The bed (as with all Fairmont's I've stayed at) was superb. Both my wife and I slept as soundly as we ever have and felt refreshed every morning.

We ate the first night at the hotel restaurant Oru and enjoyed it thoroughly. We also snacked a couple times at the cafe Giovane and their pastries were to die for. I highly recommend stopping in for a coffee and freshly baked good if you're staying or in the neighourhood. The lobby bar was where we wound down every night after dinner. I would enjoy one of the many fantastic cocktails and we soaked up the excellent live performers. The atmosphere is great, the place is busy and bustling and makes for a great place to either start or finish an evening out.

We went to the spa on Tuesday morning and again, like the rest of the hotel, it was nothing but the best. My wife and I had a couples massage and felt thoroughly relaxed afterwards. We enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi prior to our services along with the tea and dried fruit.

Overall, I can only say that this is one of, if not the best hotels I have ever stayed at and I really can't recommend it enough. Obviously there are lower priced properties you can stay at but if you are looking for the best and want to be treated as such the Pacific Rim is worth every penny.

Room Tip: Gold floor, it is the best of the best.

This is one of the classiest hotels and experiences you will ever visit. The bell staff had unloaded my luggage, read the tag name and had room keys in hand by the time I finished paying my cab driver.
