Ambiance of the common areas was most welcoming and this added to a most relaxing 4 night stay at The Fairmont Waterfront. Booked a harbor facing room which was great. Condition of the room was perfect and topped off with a Nespresso machine. Would however only give the bed a 8.5/10 for comfort. Staff were extremely friendly and on their... More

It was the perfect hotel for us. We got to see our ship pull in to port. The bees were back from vacation and we had the opportunity to learn about them. Everyone was very nice and incredibly helpful. Thank you.

The hotel staff is 5 star. The Arc pub is great and the tenders and servers are really friendly. I highly recommend this hotel. They have live acoustic music most nights. The only non positive is that they close early and do not have a real dark stout or porter.

We stayed at the Waterfront for 4 days. Our room was not ready so the front desk young man walked us to the bar with coupons AND cleared the table. Another time our waiter heard us talking about a dinner reservation and called to check on our question about our meal. The staff had the power and willingness to help... More

What we saw of hotel and the service given transporting luggage to the cruise ship was very good. Could have stayed longer! And would return. Room very good and bed comfortable. Nice tea/ coffee facilities.

This hotel was perfect for coming in from a cruise ship....just up the hotel elevator and across the street-like magic. The view was beautiful. I can't say enough for the staff...just writing this review makes me want to go put a fruit basket in my room so I can feel like I'm there again! (We had a glitch with a... More

Service has been great (I'm still staying at the hotel), and it's in an ideal location, very close to the convention center where I'm attending a show. It's about 1 block away. It's also a block from the train station, so it's an easy trip from the airport if you don't want to pay for a cab and deal with... More

The view from this room is what made the stay. Corner view full length windows to see out to the harbour, Stanley Park, and the mountains. The service from all of the staff was more than great and friendly. Anything we had questions or requests about was accommodated with a smile and in little to no time. The food at... More

I stayed here for four nights while attending a conference at the downtown Fairmont. The rooms here were far superior to the downtown hotel (although colleagues staying there were satisfied with that hotel), as I had a fantastic view of the harbour from my Waterfront room, which was large, modern and comfortable. The staff were all helpful and pleasant. I'm... More
