Room on patio level was great choice. Excellent location for cruise passengers. Availability of room was delayed because of late check out of previous guests. Lunch at Arc was excellent. Breakfast buffet at Arc, not so much. Would go elsewhere for breakfast. Front desk clerk made great recommendation for dinner. All in all was a great place for our family.

Fairmont Waterfront offers everything; fabulous view, great cuisine, outstanding service! This was my third stay and I always recommend it to all my friends. The Gold Level was an excellent value with all the complimentary food presentations and personal concierge assisting with all our plans while staying in Vancouver.

We spent three nights at the Waterfront, and while I'm not sure we ever met the same employee twice, we always received first class, courteous and helpful service. Our waterfront view from our clean, well-appointed room was always a source of diversion, with cruise ships, float planes and a pink Routemaster bus in constant action. The Fairmont Waterfront is a... More

This was a last minute choice, and we could not have been more pleased. Club check in was seamless, and bags, which we had dropped with Valet, were already delivered. With a corner room, we were afforded spectacular views of the harbor from two floor to ceiling windows. The hotel offers car service, if available, to downtown restaurants on a... More

My wife and I stayed here in February on 2 occasions.

Stayed here pre and post cruise in July. A truly outstanding hotel. Prime location to board your ship, and during your pre or post cruise days the Gastown area, quality shopping, and restaurants are near by. Definitely 5 Stars.

Outstanding guest service and attention to detail, very friendly staff. Front desk staff, bartender in ARC Lounge (lunch) and concierge as well as bell staff all go above and beyond. Love this place, if/when I return to Vancouver this would be my first choice to stay.
