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. Those booking through this code had the... More

We booked a King room through Expedia mobile, the day before check-in. It was a city view King room for $237 (mobile exclusive pricing). Upon check-in, we were informed that we booked a Queen room. We said, "uhh no" and they proceeded to tell us that Expedia does not have control/knowledge of specific room type availability, so basically, you get... More

Hotel is convenient to the Convention Center and the harbor. Good place, nice and clean. Food court access was available at the lower level. Staff was friendly but it did take a couple of requests to get help with the luggage at checkout. Downside is that wifi was not free. Can't believe that a hotel of this caliber charges for... More

We stayed one night before a cruise and we were delighted by our experience. The bed was comfy and the room was large. Attractively decorated, the room really met our expectations. Breakfast was no bargain (but it generally isn't at a nice hotel any more) but it was good and service was pleasant. We were in the perfect location for... More

We spent a few days at the Fairmont Waterfront on a family holiday to Vancouver. The location was perfect for sightseeing in Vancouver. Your only need to step out of the hotel to get onto a tourist bus to one of Vancouver's popular attractions (Grouse Mountain, Capilano suspension bridge, Vancouver Trolleybus sightseeing tours etc.). It's also right next to the... More
