“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at beginning of July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Food and drink cost are what you expect with this star hotel. Hotel has lovely roof top swimming pool which opens at 6.00 am - handy with the jet lag!! Location was great for us, we wanted to visit stanley park and had booked a seaplane/whale watching tour, both were in walking distance. Few little coffee shops/eateries nearby. Added bonus of pick up location for alot of organised trips being just outside hotel. Short distance to city centre which is easily walkable. I spent quite a bit of time researching hotels and wasn't disappointed with my choice.

Another very good Fairmont experience, our only disappointment was not having a room with a view.

Good location in downtown Vancouver within a minutes or so's walk from waterfront, Gas Town and shopping on Robson Street.

Vancouver is a busy bustling destination.

We stayed for one night after an Alaskan cruise. The hotel is within a 100 metres of the cruise terminal so no taxi is necessary. It's also linked to an underground shopping centre where you can also reach the underground train.

Our 12th floor room was bright, spacious, beautifully furnished, sparkling clean and had a lovely view of the harbour. Dinner at their restaurant was nice but service was slow. The staff seemed pushed. Breakfast was interesting and of good quality.

I would recommend this hotel for its quality and location which is right in the heart of the action in Vancouver. It's ideal for the night before or after a cruise.

Room Tip: room with view is worthwhile

We ended our Alaskan cruise in Vancouver and could easily walk from our ship to the hotel. We had a large room on the 23rd floor overlooking the port. The view was spectacular. Everyone from wait staff to the concierge was attentive and friendly. The flowers in the lobby were unusual and beautiful. We had a so so dinner in the dining room, but the breakfasts were excellent. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel!!

This hotel is located right on the waterfront across from the convention centre, with quick access to Stanley Park and the downtown business core, and walking distance to a ton of nice restaurants.

The room I had was just lovely, not too small, overlooking the waterfront and Stanley Park, and looking at North Vancouver and Grouse Mountain.

Very easy access to the Canada Line train from the airport - Waterfront station is just across the street.

A very nice location to stay if on business, or pleasure.

Room Tip: Ask for waterfront view - just stunning to wake up to in the morning.

This waterfront hotel was a great location. Right at Canada Place, the Convention Centre, within walking distance to harbour restaurants & walking paths. The room was very comfortable, staff very friendly & helpful with a conceirge desk which was often busy. The restaurants were pretty pricey so we didn't eat at this hotel, many restaurants in the area to choose from. We were there for easter so the weather was not great & the bees were not in the apiary. A little disappointed with the gardens, sounded much better on their website. The spa looked quite nice but we didn't use it.

One of the only places a chemically sensitive person can stay without being sickened by fragranced rooms and cleaning chemicals. And the pool is chlorine free. The staff is great, most of the rooms have wonderful views, the room service is excellent. I also like the location on the waterfront and a block from downtown shopping. There is also retail and food court in lower level of hotel.

Room Tip: The harbor & mountain facing rooms have beautiful views.
