“City break vancouver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

4 of us stayed 3 nights on a city break.
Room was very clean and modern with a city view.
Had a small misunderstanding with minibar but this was sorted with no fuss.
I could not write this review without mentioning the concierge staff who are second to none.
Spoke to Katie before we arrived in the hope of getting Canuck tickets.She sorted this out and tickets were waiting for me on arrival.
Rudolphino organised our transport to whistler and he could not do enough for us and is a credit to the hotel.

Second time here and once again a very good experience. Walking distance to most everything downtown Vancouver, including Stanley Park. Just a few blocks away from Robson and Granville streets. The rooms are nice, but the bathrooms are definitely in need of a major update. The service all around was very good and it is a great hotel to stay at. I was here for a conference, and the food was really good for breakfast, lunch and the break out sessions.

I would certainly come back again for personal or business.

I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us; you may be interested to know that several floors of the hotel are currently undergoing extensive renovations for which the guestroom bathrooms have been completely remodeled.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Fairmont Waterfront for business. The staff were all fantastic, especially the staff at Guest Services. The hotel was going through renos, but the noise was limited to 9 - 4 so I didn't even notice. The amenities were great, and I had a nice patio off my room ...unfortunately I didn't feel like sitting on the patio in the rain ;)
The location can't be beat. The Pan Pacific Conference Centre is right across the street ...your right in the middle of downtown ...you're blocks from the skytrain ...Stanley Park and Robson Street are just a short walk. Everything was excellent!

My first experience at the Waterfront was not a great one. But that being said they were fast to fix! I love the Fairmonts they are my home away from home. Great service, friendly people and always the best! I love how even though I may not be a high spender they take the time to consider my likes and dislikes and if I email in advance with room preferance they do not heistate to make this happen! I have not yet had the time on a visit to enjoy the pool but on my next trip I really hope to!

This Hotel has everything you would expect from a Fairmont. Beautiful lobby, great food, attached to shops, excellent location (Close to gastown and the water), beautiful views from the hotel, comfortable bed and rooms. Room was a great size and had everything we needed, service was great, hotel was quiet. We even went for a morning swim in their outdoor pool, granted it was the start of February so it wasn't the warmest swim but the pool was heated we even promoted others to dive in. Hot tub was great and they had lots of options if you like to work out while on Vacation. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Just another excellent stay at a Fairmont.

Excellent customer service, phenomenal view- I am a member of the President's Club and we were given a room overlooking the harbor. It was spectacular!

The hotel is across from the Vancouver Convention Centre and close to shopping. We were in town for the Chicago Blackhawks- Canucks game and the hotel is less than a mile from Rogers Arena. Everyone one courteous, helpful, and accommodating- even though we were NOT rooting for the home team!

Had breakfast at the Herons and it was SPECTACULAR!!!!!! An UNBELIEVABLE SELECTION at a GREAT price.

Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
