As part of our Christmas holiday we started in Vancouver. Fairmont was excellent although they are going through construction right now - but not terrible. Fantastic location and the concierge was always very helpful. Extremely friendly for pets! Would highly recommend them...architecturally beautiful!

The staff is excellent, the rooms spacious and well appointed and the common areas reflect classic elegance with a modern flare. All rooms have a decent view however... More

Close proximity to skytrain stations. Very friendly, knowledgable staff. Beautiful location on the waterfront where cruise ships dock. Short walk to downtown core and shopping. Beautifully appointed rooms. Great food in ARC.

This was the perfect spot to stay during my visit to Vancouver. Walking distance to everything and even the most basic room is beautiful, spacious and well-appointed. I couldn't be happier with the service and the hotel experience overall. I would return in a heartbeat!
