Great place to stay while in Vancouver. Close to cruise terminal. Very helpful staff. Great food in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was huge. I was pleasantly pleased with the overall stay. Would stay again.

On the final lap of our tour of Western Canada we stayed 3 nights at the Waterfront Hotel. We stayed on the Fairmont Gold Floor, with our room overlooking the harbor and mountains. The Hotel is in an excellent position with good access to travel options, buses, sky train, ferry boat and with most of central Vancouver attractions within walking distance. We particularly appreciated the closeness of the Float Plane Terminal and that the hotel provided us with free bikes (available to President club members) which we used to explore Stanley Park. The staff were professional and attentive; our room was large clean and well equipped.The Gold level lounge provided an excellent buffet breakfast and afternoon selection of canapes. The Waterfront also offers luggage storage which we much appreciated as we spent 5 days over on Vancouver Island. A first class city center hotel which we look forward to returning to in the future.

Room Tip: It is well to remember Vancouver Harbor is a working port, with a busy container facility, which the...

Great location for strolling around Vancouver.The Fairmont Waterfront is amazing. Such comfy beds in clean and modern rooms with great views of downtown or the harbour. The renovated Bar has got a hipper vibe than the cozy laid back atmosphere it had before the renos. The staff here are always ready to meet any of our needs. thanks

If you are traveling and money is no object. This is the perfect hotel at the water front, right were the cruise ships dock. This hotel is close to everything. Dining, attractions, shopping, air travel by sea, docks and the historic gas area.
Be prepared to pay $7.50 for a 1.5 liter bottle of water in your room, or $15.00 for a cheap glass of wine and $29.00 for a breakfast buffet.
The staff couldn't be any nicer. The rooms and bathrooms are very big and spacious. If you want the view of the harbor, be prepare to pay an up charge of $40.00. Four elevators and super fast too.
Internet is not free either. There are in room snacks and bar, but are extremely expensive like most hotels, but this one holds the record. Free in room coffee via the Keurig coffee system. Long plush bath robes are also available and a safe deposit box.
There are several nice restaurants all with walking distance.
Great hotel if money is no object.

Room Tip: Request a harbor side room, but you'll pay a premium.

We stayed in Vancouver for three days prior to a cruise. This hotel and staff exhibits the traditional high quality of service and amenities that are unique to the Fairmont. The general manager and staff keep their hand on the "pulse" of the operations and become personally involved as needed. We visited the Pacific Rim property down the street and prefer the Waterfront location because it has the best personal and traditional experience for us.

I have recently had a two night stay in this hotel and I was very impressed. I have a had a harbour view room with stunning views. It's in a great location to get out and about and will cost you around $40 in a taxi from the airport. If you are joining a cruise you will see your ship from the window!
The gym & spa gets a 10/10 and it's on the third floor with a roof top heated pool that gets the thumbs up from me!
The restaurant serves modern contemporary cuisine and is worth a visit. Over the road you will find the Fly Over Canada experience. This is a 4D cinema where they fly you from the east to the west of Canada. Definitely worth the visit at $20!!
