My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Pacific Rim from April 2nd - 6th. From the moment we arrived the service was awesome. When we got out of the taxi the bellman asked for our last name and said that we did not have to go to check-in, he had our keys. He handed us off to another gentleman who took us to our room and showed us how everything worked and where the buttons were (remote lights, curtains, coffee maker, TV in the mirror......)
The location of the hotel is great. The 2010 Olympic Caldron as directly across the street to the left and Canada Place was directly across the street to the right. The elevators are the fastest that we have ever had in a hotel. The longest we had to wait was approximately 2 seconds, they seemed to anticipate us needing to use them. The rooms are large and comfortable.
The hotel just opened in January 2010, so the pool area is not finished yet (it's due to open in June 2010). You may want to ask for a room on the other side of the hotel until the pool is finished, as the workers seemed to start working outside between 7:00 and 7:30 am. I went to the spa and it was great. I decided at the last minute to get a massage, that was around 4:00 pm. I called down and they said that they were all booked up, I said that was fine. About 10 minutes later I received a call from the spa saying that a masseuse said that she would stay to give me my massage. I went directly down and had an awesome 60 minutes massage.
If you want to be pampered and have great service, this is the hotel for you.
