I booked this hotel for two reasons - it is adjacent to the cruise terminal where we were going to disembark following an Alaska cruise and it is a Virtuoso affiliate hotel! Be sure to book this hotel through a travel agent who is affiliated with Virtuoso. Because of having a Virtuoso rate, we received a $75 food and beverage... More

This is a beautiful hotel with the most amazing staff. From the moment we stepped out of our cab everyone treated us as if we just arrived at our home. Our suite overlooked the water and the roof top garden. The Preferred Gold lounge breakfast was very good and the staff there were so,so nice. It was very easy walk... More

Stayed one night before cruising. This hotel is across the street from Canada Place. Restaurants are near by plus the hotel restaurant is exceptional. We stayed on the 18th floor with a harbor view as well as Stanley Park. The room was huge. Very comfy king bed, two upholstered chairs, large desk. Very nice bath and bathing products. Also a...

My husband and I recently celebrated my birthday at the Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver. Most comfortable beds ever and very quiet room considering how busy the hotel was. Lots of thought has been put into their guests' comfort, such as plush robes and wonderful Le Labo toiletries. We had a fantastic view across the harbor and watched a cruise ship... More

We stayed here as it was so near to the cruise embarkation centre at Canada Place. We literally walked across the road to the ship, infect the hotel takes your luggage over to the ship for you, so totally hassle free. Apart from that this hotel was well situated to walk to shops and restaurants easily. A good in house... More

Recently held our board meeting here. Great location, beautiful views, attentive staff. Food was excellent, including for our large group events of 60+ people. Concierge was excellent.

Great location, great property, great lounge & restaurant, if you can afford it! Parking is steep also. Stayed two nights - the city was full and we couldn't get in for our first night, but they were most excellent nights! Will definitely return!

Great location, especially if taking a cruise. Offered early check-in for cruisers. Well equipped, spacious rooms with lovely views of the city or harbour. Bath a bit small with shower/bath combo. I prefer separate facilities. For price would expect free wifi. At $15 a day it is not expensive but more the principle, pool looks lovely and well equipped but... More

We chose the Fairmont Waterfront for our pre-cruise lodging and booked their "cruise special". The deal included breakfast for two (we were able to pay for a third breakfast for our daughter during the booking process), harbor views, plus transfer of our luggage to Canada Place (conveniently across the street!) for our cruise.
