Stayed one night in Vancouver here, had a very nice stay.

Beautiful view room, very quiet and spacious...I'm a swimmer and loved the 3rd floor outdoor pool which was good for doing laps while looking up at all the other highrises. Service was great and unobtrusive including the bellhop who gave us a quick description of the hotel and amenities including the pool which we were not aware of upon checking in. That it's open at 5:30AM is a rare plus for me as most hotel pools don't open until 9AM which is too late for me plus by then are filled with kids and blow-up toys.

We ordered breakfast in-room and again the server was very polite and professional. Different than most hotels we stayed at on this trip, they bring the food in a warming cart which becomes your table when leaves are flipped up, nice.

Not knowing much about Vancouver felt the location was excellent and walked around looking at the other cool buildings including the hip sister Fairmont which we would definitely look in to staying at the next time we're up there.

Would definitely consider staying at a Fairmont again!

The Fairmont Waterfront Hotel was pefect from start to finish. It's nice to say all the staff was friendly, professional, and the 'gold' floor was worth the extra money: food and service was top notch. Our first time staying at a Fairmont property, we will recommend and stay with you again.
The harbor side room came with a beautiful view, wish we were still there...

Room Tip: The harbor view was perfect, my guess the city view would be just as great.

Let me start explaining the deductions:
Perfect location if you board the cruise ships, for a city exploration a bit too far off the main action.
Rooms: immaculate but a bit aged, so there goes a point.
Value: high end hotels are pricey, so are the extras, room for improvement.
Goodies:
Superb room service and restaurant (Herons). Super nice staff, great service, fastest check in yet thanks to A1 prepared documents and reception. Helps to be member of presidents club.
Food court with all standard fast food joints on lower floor for those who opt out of breakfast.

My husband and I stayed at the Fairmount Waterfront Hotel for only one night as we were leaving for an Alaskan cruise.
Our room was luxurious, comfortable, quite and just exceeding our expectations.
Ryan the Doorman was exceptionally helpful as well.

Room Tip: We had a corner room and it was lovely.

I recently spent 5 nights at this Hotel while attending a conference. The service at this Hotel is excellent and the room was very nice. I had a corner room that was spacious and quiet. The Hotel is in a fantastic location close to all of the tourist areas and within walking distance of Stanley Park, Gastown and only a minute from the Convention Center. It is smaller than some of the other hotels nearby but it has a wonderful atmosphere that is warm and relaxing. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room referred to as a 16 room. They are a bit larger and have a small hallway which...

We had a great time at the Start of our Tauck Tour the Hotel looked after our specific needs over and above the tour requirements.

Coming from Australia the reservations staff were very professional to deal with prior to the trip and on arrival all our requests were met. We found the room (one bedroom suite) to be excellent extremely clean and spacious.

Accessibility to the Hotel was great and only a short walk to the downtown shopping area with
underground access as well to use with the colder months and there is a Hairdressing Salon
located in the shops below the hotel

Room Tip: The higher floors looking over the Harbor offer the best views and the One bedroom Suite which linke...

Stayed at the Waterfront due to participating in a Travel Agent Ship Inspection and our room could not be better!! Had a direct view of the ship that we were going to tour - and it was simple awesome!!
Eating at Herons is the best and the waiters are just incredible especially at breakfast were you are not quite awake and have no idea what you want. Incredibly helpful and accommodating!
Look forward to July when we will be staying there again for a conference and ship inspection!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Canada Place are the best!
