3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recently stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront for a work convention. We upgraded our room to a suite and stayed for 2 days. Room was clean and modern and the front desk, valet and bell boy were great. Only issues were with the manager and security staff. We had 3 noise complaints sitting in our room talking. Apparently the people in... More

We recently stayed for a night as part of a family trip with our nine month old. The hotel was gorgeous and they staff were really friendly. Self parking was a little hard to find, despite getting pretty good directions from the door staff. We especially appreciated the travel crib that we had requested for our son. We had used... More

Before I got out of the car the bellman had taken my luggage, welcomed me by name, and handed me my room key with the promise that my bags would come to the room within minutes. This was the start of an exceptional stay at the Fairmont Waterfront. I stayed on the Gold Floor with one of th best views... More

We were staying in Whistler and took a break to come to Vancouver for a night for my birthday. Initially booked a waterfront view room but changed it as view was quite disappointing from the 10th floor with a view of two buildings and a small part of the harbour although I had booked a full waterfront view. I had... More

Stayed here twice in December 2015 for a total of 6 nights. I deliberately chose to go to Vancouver for my solo holiday to stay at the Fairmont Waterfront again. This was my fourth visit to the hotel within 8 months and it was just as lovely as my other visits. The rooms were impeccable. The bed, though a tad... More

This was our first stop on a long holiday and we could not have had a more welcoming beginning to Canada. The staff were incredibly helpful and very friendly and warm - often offering assistance before we needed to ask for it. The rooms were lovely and well appointed, the food was reasonably priced and delicious and the location, right... More

My family stayed here just before Christmas and we found the service to be fantastic especially the bellman and the valet captain. We had to bring her truck in and out several times and they were more than happy to get it for us and also to help us get it washed. I also enjoyed the gym in the hotel... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for business and was very impressed with the service. The room was well appointed with a nice view of the water. It was close to restaurants and other amenities. Most of all the staff was truly exceptional.

We stayed here for 2 nights the week of Christmas 2015. My husband and I had a room and my daughter had a room to herself 2 doors down the hall. It's a quiet time of the year for Vancouver with no cruise ships going in and out to Alaska as there would be in the summer. The hotel has... More

Spent four nights at Fairmont Waterfront and was impressed by the incredible view, clean, well appointed guest room and flawless service. Enjoyed several meals at the hotel as well as breakfast with clients at Fairmont Pac Rim. Left some items behind which were prompt mailed by the hotel to my office. All in all, a great experience.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
