“Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

We had a fantastic room with a huge bed on the top floor, paying an additional $20 a night for a river view, but WOW what a view. The start of the Rockies in the background but it was the river which made the massive windowed, panoramic view, with huge ships gently manoeuvring in and out we left the curtains open and watched all night.

The hotel is in a great location on the waterfront with Gas Town one block away. The restaurant had just reopened after a make over and looked very smart. A very grand, modern hotel in a great location.

Room Tip: Go as high as you can and pay for river view, well worth it!

Loved this hotel. We were upgraded to a corner room on a high floor (abt 16th) with beautiful views overlooking the harbour. Great service. Fabulous position as many of the tourist pick ups are close by. The harbour sky train station is close by (just around the corner...abt 1 min away) so it's easy to get off your plane at the airport and be at your hotel without a great deal of trouble for around $9. Also perfect if you are going on or returning from one of the cruises leaving from the harbour. Not cheap of course, but we considered it well worth the cost

Room Tip: Corner suite on higher floors overlooking the harbour give great views. Join the "Presidents Cl...

Stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver on our way to Alaska. We had a lovely corner harbor view king room. The room was beautifully appointed and the view was stunning! Will stay there again!!

Had a fantastic stay at the Waterfront. Also, can visit the Pacific Rim across the street and enjoy their bar and charge to your room. Both hotels were beautiful and unique to each other. Staff is professional and provide outstanding service.

For Buisness and Leisure the best location in Town. Great Pool Deck. Convenient for arriving and leaving town by car. The cost of parking of $ 44 is quite expensive. Think about whether you need a car. Otherwise my suggestion, while in town and you have a rental car. Drop it in Downtown and make a new reservation, if you need one.
