Most seem to be coming or going to Alaskan cruises which depart nearby. It boasts a very good quality restaurant in Arc, a great location and... More

We enjoyed our stay. Night before princess cruise to Alaska. Hotel just across the street from Canada Place. They take your luggage to the ship so you don't need to worry. Our luggage did NOT get lost. Mall below hotel so you can eat breakfast. Very clean, top of the line hotel.

Location is unbeatable, rooms are modern with city or harbour views right next to cruise ship terminal! Would be nice to have an outdoor hot tub with sauna but otherwise spa, pool , exercise room was fantastic with ocean views!

For best views of waterfront request high floor and facing water. Sign up for Fairmont loyalty program early for free internet and other amenities. Excellent choice and great service. Busy hotel. Great rooms.

A very enjoyable stay in a hotel that is smart, modern and stylish. We were upgraded to a corner room with absolutely stunning views of the bay. The only thing that lets it down is that guests have to pay for wi fi. This is quite a big issue for me, especially where much less well off hotels have it... More

Great place by the water front, located nicely close to train connection to airport. Large rooms, had nice view to city. There is nice pool, was not able to try it because of the weather. Hot tub and gym were nice. Minus goes to internet - costs much (like elsewhere in Vancouver).

It was a great hotel, close to everything we wanted to walk too. Also we got off the cruise boat and it was across the street. If you want wifi there, the trick is to join their club before you go & then it's free. Otherwise it was 14.00 a day. For the price of the room it SHOULD be... More
