Another stay, all too brief in our favourite Vancouver hotel. Had a lower floor this time as needed a suite for three of us but would advise higher floors for the views. Rooms have been renovated and our suite had a superb rain shower. Breakfast is good and probably healthier but not the groaning expanse it used to be years... More

My husband and I took our 2 children (6 yrs and 9 yrs old) for a quick trip to Vancouver. With our limited time (48 hours) we wanted to try to find a place to stay that would help us experience true Vancouver easily. Fairmont Waterfront was the perfect spot! The location is literally across the street from the water.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the 23 floor of the Waterfront, it had a spectacular view of Coal Harbor and Vancouver's north shore. It was so beautiful looking at the sea planes landing and taking off, the large boat coming and going, and the bridge was outstanding at night with all the lights. The ARC is a wonderful restaurant with... More

Good location. And excellent service. I feel that the hotel is a little dated compared to Fairmont Pacific Rim, but then again Pacific Rim is more expensive so I guess that explains it. I stayed in the Signature Harbour View Double and was expecting great view of Stanley Park but the view was blocked by Pan Pacific so I was... More

Although this is not a classic Canadian Fairmont hotel the location is fabulous.Very close to Convention Centre and Canada Place. Very convenient for sea wall which is one of the best inner city locations in the world for running, walking or cycling. Hotel is very conveniently located for casual dining in gas town or one of the many fine waterfront... More

Harbor view rooms were fully renovated and had a stunning view on the harbor! If you're visiting you should definitely rent bikes (for free) at the concierge. Breakfast products had good quality yet the seating area is too small for the many guests, which resulted in a 20-minute wait to be seated.

This hotel is located right by the water, with gorgeous views of the mountains and the ocean. We can often see eagles, seaplanes, seals. But it's also a vibrant area, with plenty of restaurants and shops. From the airport, you can take the skytrain and get off on the very last station, which is a block from the hotel. That's... More

We booked and stayed for one night in a Signature Room while attending the Vancouver International Wine Festival. Via a promotion, we received one free ticket to the VIWF. Our room was not big enough to host a small gathering of people we were meeting so we arranged for a dinner table in the ARC dining room for 10. Staff... More
