This was my first stay at a Fairmont hotel, but I will definitely be returning. The customer service provided by the Waterfront was second to none. Every time I made contact with a member of staff they were friendly and professional, and an absolute delight to talk to, always remembering my name. The room I was allocated was on the... More

I have recently reviewed this property (September) and had given it a strong rating at the time - but had one big question - is it worth it? My most recent stay has convinced me that this hotel can provide tremendous value What I liked: Complimentary upgrade to a Signature room by hotel (no use of upgrade instruments such as... More

We stopped off en route on our downtown excursion to Canada Place and ordered coffees. Not cheap but you pay for the service and location. What a hotel, would love to try the dinner menu in there and the rooms, have you any deals going on!!! It's in a great location

We stayed at the Waterfront for three nights because our son's UBC forestry ring ceremony was held there. The banquet meal exceeded my expectations. The room was large and bright, and very clean and modern. Bicycles were provided which we would have used if it hadn't rained the entire time we were there. Shopping is very close by which was...

We chose the Waterfront, having used Fairmont on a number of occasions, specifically for the location and the views. The views we could not fault, with our corner room overlooking the harbour and beyond. However, service and facility-wise this could have been any international brand hotel anywhere in the world...certainly there was no feeling of Fairmont as we have experienced... More

I stayed here for a wedding in October, 2014 with my twin boys and parents. We had adjoining rooms that worked out well. The rooms were very clean and modern and the view was great. Lots of tourist attractions and restaurants are within walking distance. Didn't have a chance to try the food but the wedding reception food was excellent.

Price is to high compared to what you get. The rooms has to large openings under the door makes the room noisy - hallway noisy/elevator noise. Location is good, service is good, size of rooms good, ARC restaurant is good.

Although we only stayed one night, we really enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Waterfront. Service from the Concierge at the front entrance, to front desk and restaurant staff was courteous and efficient. Dinner in the Arc Restaurant was very good and complimented with a table near the fireplace and live music by a guitarist. We ate breakfast in our... More

We made our annual Vancouver trip at the end of February and spent 3 nights at this hotel. Once again the hotel was immaculate and the service was excellent. We have stayed here several times over the years, though when we were younger (and poorer) it was a big expense for us so we saved it for special occasions only.... More
