“Beautiful views, very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

My husband and I booked this hotel for a weekend in March and we had such a great time, the views from the room were beautiful you could see the mountains and the bay. The room was nice, big, comfortable bed, super clean, and even do the hotel is located on a touristic area we didn’t hear any noise. The bathroom was nice & spacious, the hotel spa is really nice & the breakfast/brunch is fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel; the service was good & the staff very helpful & friendly. We hope to come back soon.

I stay in many Fairmont Hotels. Pacific Rim is a favorite. It is new and high tech. The restaurant Oru is awesome. Most importantly, the service is extraordinary. When the cab dropped my off last night the bellman got my bag from the trunk. By the time I paid the cab driver he had my key and check-in materials. He found my name on my bag.
I will stay here every time I visit Vancouver and I recommend it to my friends.

What's not good to say about this hotel?! Everything was perfect from the location, to the rooms, to the outstanding service. The hotel gives free service rides to dinners, etc in BMW's! The hotel is right on the water and next to the best sushi places ever, "Miku." The concierge even got us reservations to the Cactus Club, which does not even take reservations. We are ordinary people, but were treated like a King and Queen. Awesome hotel and lobby bar!

We booked a Fairmont gold harbour view suite on the 21st foor which was also a corner suite,the outside patio gave us fantastic views of not only the harbour and the sea planes taking off and landing but also great views of the snow capped mountains.From our bedroom and en-suite we had great views of the city of Vancouver the best of both worlds.The bedroom was very spacious with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in we made a note of the name of the bed manufacturer with the aim to purchase one that was how good the bed was.The en-suite was of similar quality with a great shower and bath,the lounge could have been a little bigger for my liking but there was also another separate toilet and shower in this room. We had a meal in the Oru restaurant which was a very nice experience,excellent service from the staff.The hotel is in a great place to explore the city and slightly further afield the wilderness, also Stanley park was nice to walk through and get some exercise after lunch(just make sure you look out for the joggers... there are lots).Was not that impressed with the aquarium through and would not recommend going there.Overall it is a excellent hotel,very luxurious with very polite and helpful staff and very conveniently placed for shopping and excellent restaurants all within walking distance of this fine hotel.

My wife and I and our 20 month old daughter stayed for 3 nights in late FEB.
Arguably the best hotel I have stayed in.
The 1 bedroom suites are enormous with breathtaking city / Harbour views!
No request was too difficult and they really went out of there way to spoil our daughter.
Highly recommended!

Had a 3 night business trip and stayed on Gold Floor. First off, service is amazing, from the time you arrive at the front door and as you walk thru. Lobby lounge amazing, always bustling, and excellent live music. Gold floor room was modern and everything was in order. Love the bathroom and the waterfall shower. Gold floor lounge itself has expansive views of harbor and you can watch seaplanes land and take off. Breakfast, and service was amazing. One morning I didn't see what I wanted, and the cook as that, and offered to make me scrambled eggs - best eggs I've ever had. Overall, staff was very friendly and accommodating. And I worked out every morning with Fairmont workout clothes in their gym and it was one of the bigger fitness facilities I've seen for a hotel, especially a city hotel. And all equipment in good working order. The hotel, service, and amenities made the trip just wonderful. 5 stars - and I can't wait to come back.

Stayed three nights in a king mountian view room on the 16 floor. great views of North Van, and the bay. Watch ships and sea planes fly by. Room itself is very nice with a great "master" type bathroom.
all rooms are controlled by an iPad or touch pads which is kinda fun!! The lobby lounge is a hot spot in vancouver and you never really know who you can rub shoulders with.We only had some appys and a bit of sushi so cant comment on the full restraunt menu, but what we had was fantastic!!
overall great experience in a great hotel!!
