Arriving late on a Friday night during the holiday season, our first impression may have been atypical. However, it appeared that the Pacific Rim is a very hip place to see and be seen. Spectacularly decorated for the holidays, the lobby was buzzing with people dressed to the nines and in the holiday spirit. Limousines were lined up outside the door, the parkinge parking garage was full, and valet parking was required. Check in was very efficient. We were soon through the party crowd in the lobby and up to the peace and quiet of our room. Great bedding. Great air quality. Great city view. Well located within easy walking distance of downtown attractions. The hotel features lots of high tech toys and original artwork, the latter explained in a book located in the room for those who want to read about the art pieces and the hotel's aromatherapy. I admit that the word "pretentious" did flit through my mind as I read the book from cover to cover but we would stay at the Pacific Rim again without question. Another jewel in the Fairmont's crown.
