It simply does not get much better in Vancouver than the Pacific Rim.
We have had the pleasure to stay at many - if not all - of the four and five star hotels in Vancouver and while all have their strengths and weaknesses, the Fairmont Pacific Rim is the only hotel I really have a hard time finding a problem with.
Location is perfect, a five-minute walk from Canada Place(easy walk to or from your cruise ship), Robson, Seawall and the Canada Line from the airport. and fifteen from Stanley Park, Service is exceptional - we were always personally acknowledged upon arrival and exit, always made to feel special. This is a very high end hotel without any of the attitude and pretensions encountered at others in the same price range(read PP). The concierge was very helpful, whether it be for a restaurant recommendation or simple directions. When calling for assistance from the room, the phone was always answered on one ring by a friendly associate ready and eager to help.
Rooms are very well thought out, with roomy bathrooms. Ipad controlled room amenities very convenient and efficient, with probably the best and fastest WiFi we have ever experienced in a hotel. Espresso machine a nice touch, as is the full size electric tea kettle. Television in the bathroom mirror another nice touch for catching up on news during a morning shower. Lighting controls however can get a bit confusing, especially in the middle of the night. Very nice connection console built into the desk, with convenient USB ports for device charging... but while the supplied connection cords are nice, there were only Apple connectors provided - no mini-usb for us Android folks. But this is really a minor quibble with a fine hotel that really gets it right.
This is the first place we call when planning a visit to Vancouver, we don't even like to have to consider staying anywhere else. An while all this quality does come with a price, one can definitely spend more for less in the Downtown Vancouver area.
