My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights prior to our Alaska cruise, as part of a pre-cruise option offered by Princess Cruises. The hotel is beautiful and upscale, but it is reflected in the high price. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient to cruisers, being right across the street from Canada Place,... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront for just one night before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer. The hotel is very well appointed and the rooms are quiet despite the fact that the lobby is generally very busy with tour groups. We liked the proximity to Gastown and the waterfront with all of the cruise ship activity and access to tours, shuttles,... More

We stayed here for a wedding that was held at the hotel. This is one of the nicer hotels I have stayed in. The staff was great. The rooms are a little on the small side for what you're paying, but the bed is comfortable and the amenities are very nice. The location is very close to the metro, and... More

The best thing about this hotel was the concierge service. Very helpful in recommending restaurants (even ones a little far away), use of bus and ship service, recommendations on museums, and even bike rentals. It is a modern hotel with nice amenities- we enjoyed swimming at the end of the day with the view of downtown from the pool deck.... More

Nice, but pricey. We received a free night stay with our cruise on Holland America. It is located right next to the cruise terminal and they take care of getting your bags on board and that is a great benefit. The room was nice, but why does such a high priced hotel feel they should charge $7.50 for a bottle... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights prior to departing on a cruise. The hotel is magnificent, spotlessly clean and a good central location. Its located directly opposite the cruise terminal. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous. The only criticism I have is that breakfast is not included in the room price and although there is a wide selection... More

Loved this hotel. Great situation at waterfront but within easy walking distance to downtown. Great rooms and gym/pool area and all staff were extremely helpful. Would definitely staff here again if visiting Vancouver.

We were there for a one-night stay before a cruise. Wish we had longer. The hotel was beautiful and the bar staff was awesome. They understood our love of craft beer and made great recommendation. The food was great as well. Great location for a cruise - walked to the port.

Noticed some people complained about the cost of the Internet at this hotel. Now there should not have been a problem at all, if you register first with the Fairmont it's free so maybe they missed that then it's free at all Fairmont Hotels. The buffet breakfast looked bad so we went for a walk and had a great breakfast... More
