My husband and I recently returned from our 6 year anniversary stay. The staff were impeccable and insured our anniversary was honored and that we felt like a priority.

It would be impossible to complain about anything in this hotel. It is a really great location, probably the best in the city. I come to Vancouver a couple times a year on business and this is my new favorite hotel.

Nice to see some renovations done on this hotel as it was very tired but still has a dated feel. Gym is okay but not up to Fairmont PacRim. Great beds/mattresses is what makes Fairmont such a great choice. What happened to the wonderful dog that used to be out front with the bellmen? I guess Fairmont doesn't do this... More

The weather was a little unpredictable but the service was definitely not. A great place to stay right by the water. Get a harbour view if you can. Located across the street from a sky train station you can easily get around using public transportation or jump on the hop on hop off tourist trolley across the street. Great hotel,... More

This hotel is well located and the rooms are very nice. It was my GF birthday and the concierge as well as the all staff was very nice helping me organizing my surprise. Justin also helped us getting some stuff arrange in the room on the last night. Thank everybody! You made my stay so exceptional.

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
