We were at that Fairmont Waterfront for about a week. Excellent room, excellent facilities. Staff very efficient and friendly. Close to Gastown. Fairmont Gold facilities well worth the additional charges particularly the external sitting area and views from the deck.

We weren't sure which hotel to choose for the Vancouver leg of our Canadian holiday. We plumped for the Fairmont Waterfront and were not disappointed. The hotel is lower rise than some of the surrounding buildings but you do still get great views over the harbour and opposite shore of Vancouver. We stayed here for one night, travelled for a...

The view was spectacular, the room luxuriously appointed, the bed and linens (forgive me): Heavenly! A special treat- check out the beehives in the rooftop garden near the 3rd floor pool. Very cool. Saturday morning breakfast required a bit of a wait, but once seated, it was delicious!

The size and quality of the room was excellent - with all the amenities you would expect of a five star hotel. Being on the Gold... More

Six of us (unrelated) stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront for two nights following an Alaskan vacation. One of the group became ill and was taken to the hospital. The hotel was extremely helpful during this time. The manager arranged for transportation to and from the hospital for the ill guest's traveling companion, accompanied one of us to the ill guest's...

Best sized rooms, great food and in room facilities, fantastic view of the city and the green rooftops. Great for business and family. I was able to work at the desk and enjoy the pool. Food was equally delicious whether in the restaurant, the bar, in meeting or in room dining. Staff were all terrific.

Lovely hotel in a most beautiful part of the city . A little less expensive that the other Fairmonts but nothing is compromised . If it's a good deal , stay on the Gold floor - breakfast there will save you money and is delicious . Appetizers and drinks on the patio overlooking the waterfront is so special .
