Service here makes you feel like royalty the moment you approach the doors. Nothing really is no trouble for them. The building is big and grand and beautiful,worth a walk through even if you are not staying. They have moved the dining area to the Roof while they re-fit the main entrance. Traffic flow and Valet parking is complicated now, with one-way street systems meaning you have to drive around the blocks to get your car to the right side of the building. They say the Roof is a temporary spot for the restaurant - it is very new and fresh, and light, with a wonderful view- my guess is they will keep it there! I did like the old fashioned 'Palm Court' feeling of the old one though.
Their Gold level is sumptuous. The fluffiest of duvets and pillows. Opulent and refined decor. Delicious nibbles in the lounge, and an extra special breakfast buffet. Peacefully away from the madding crowds.
Not to be 'picky' especially but the bathroom we had was on the small side, with nowhere to put your wash bags. I've always thought the Fairmonts had wonderful bathrooms so perhaps this is just that this is the oldest building and that was how they were built back then. There would have been a few more coat hangers in the closet too, my husband used up most of them before i got to unpack!
A lovely Spa. Some very high end shops and on the street level so you can window shop without going outside if its raining. Plenty of umbrellas to loan, and a service car for short trips available on a first come basis. The central locations means you can pretty much walk to most of the important central city spots .
If you don't want to even think about where to stay down town Vancouver then here takes away all the stress and guarantees a very pleasant visit.
