Very nice hotel; well located close to the bars and restaurants in Gastown and easily walking distance from downtown and attractions like Stanley Park. Facilities were good; rooms were simple but clean, functional and pleasant. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's not a fantastic hotel but doesn't pretend to be and it's very good at what it does. Would... More

Every year in the spring I have the pleasure of being in Vancouver to watch the cherry blossoms, and magnolias bloom and I always make sure I stay at Fairmont Waterfront. The service is top notch.

Second time I have stayed here and I would come back in a heartbeat. Super friendly service but not overbearing. Clean, spacious and well appointed rooms. The beds are so comfortable! My only bugaboo is water in the shower does not get really hot and water pressure is just so-so.

All the staff were super courteous and helpful whenever we had a question. Only hiccup was room service. Food promised in 20 minutes (popcorn and ice cream) but the... More

I recently stayed in this hotel for a business event for 3 days. The customer service from check-in to check-out was the very best. All of the staff went out of their way to make my stay and the event truly memorable.

After discovering Vancouver last December and spending one night at the Fairmont Waterfront, we were anxious to return, hoping we could duplicate the great time we had previously. We had an even better time on our return. The Gold Floor is so convenient and has such good food. The staff makes you feel special, and genuinely care about their guests.... More

An exceptional hotel. From the location right downtown and on the waterfront; to the staff who were all excellent. Everyone from the bell-hops to the concierge to the cleaning staff went out of there way to be polite, courteous and helpful.
