Staff are polite and helpful. When I checked in on Canada Day and requested for a seaview room, they asked me for extra pay to upgrade the seaview room but finally they arranged a room with seaview but not facing the main harbour which I expected to watch the firework. But anyway I appreciate for their arrangement.

Staff at this hotel are superb. Nothing is too much trouble, they seem genuinely pleased to help and are very welcoming and pleasant. Rooms are lovely, clean and well presented. Public areas are welcoming, comfortable and busy - obviously a popular hotel. Location superb, right on Canada Place, short walk to Gastown and into the city to see the attractions... More

I am officially in love with this hotel! I love the staff, they're so wonderful! They have almond milk - NO hotel is this accommodating! They also cater to your dietary restriction! The view is awesome, go for a walk outside, it's super cool and right in front of Vancouver Center. The bathroom is awesome, SO huge! And also this... More

The location was perfect. There's a food court under the hotel that leads directly to the water front sky train. The sky train takes you anywhere you want to go in the greater Vancouver area. Everything is steps away from the sky train. The sea bus that takes you to north Vancouver is steps away from the hotel. You don't... More

This is a dream location. We were on the 14th floor with a harbour view. Couldn't have been better. By chance we were there for Canada Day, we dressed in our Red and white and joined the crowds we could see from our window. We could see the nighttime fireworks whilst sitting in bed! However, to the hotel... Excellent in... More

As usual, the Fairmont brand does not disappoint. The staff was friendly and very attentive in all parts of the hotel -- check in, restaurant, housekeeping, room service, etc. The decor is updated and appearance is well maintained. This is a fantastic place to stay as it provides very easy access to the harbor waterfront, Stanley Park, and the cruise... More

If you cherish peace and quiet, this is not a hotel for you! It is great for families, people on the go, constant hustle and bustle. On the third floor we stayed at a garden side room, right by the gym and the pool, but these few rooms have their own walk out to the pool their own private patios... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in late-May for a conference at the Convention Centre across the street and had no issues whatsoever. It is a newer property that is very well-maintained. From early check-in to consistent food quality, elevator service, nice gym, outdoor pool, and a spacious and comfortable room, would happily stay here again if close to meetings etc.... More

The hotel was first class in every sense from the beautiful appointed bedroom to the service provided by the Concierge desk. Here we would like to commend Lucas who was perhaps the most helpful person whom we have encountered in any hotel. If there was an area of slight disappointment it was with the Arc Restaurant which perhaps stopped us... More
