Room was great. Staff was friendly except for the bar. I had ordered some vanilla ice cream in the evening after dinner and it had some freeze dried fruit. The portion was extremely small. Goodness, in the age of fresh why would you? Cardboard was a good description. After inquiring about an alternative to freeze dried to the waitress. I... More

Stayed here as part of a trip which included the Rocky Mountaineer and a Holland America cruise of the Inland Passage. Hotel is very nice and very convenient to the cruise terminal. If you are going on a cruise the bell staff will take your bags to the ship directly from the hotel which is very convenient.

Situated in the heart of the city right by the water, the Fairmont offers an excellent location. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. There is a great health center and spa with an outdoor rooftop pool. However on of the highlights during my visit was the wonderful breakfast buffet!

I stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront for business recently. I brought along my wife and 6 month old son. It was the absolute high season in Vancouver. We arrived early and they had our room ready about 30 minutes before check-in. We were on the top floor of the hotel with an amazing view of the harbor. Everyone at this... More

The bathroom was elegant and superbly fitted out. The bed was very comfortable and the room peaceful. We slept well there. The staff were extremely courteous and we spent a couple of hours several days in... More

A superb hotel centrally located with great views and first class service. Our package included breakfast which made a pleasant surprise. We have stayed at several Fairmont Hotels and whilst all were excellent, this one was one of the best

We booked this hotel because we are happy with the Fairmont Club and its privileges . We also got this hotel because it is just across the Cruise terminal. BUT we made a mistake. Its a very busy hotel and the superior service that you would expect from a deluxe hotel like a Fairmont is not rendered. Front desk is... More

A very popular premium hotel. Large rooms, air conditioning is one of the best we have found, big glass windows for great views, huge flat screen TV, and extremely helpful staff at every point. They have their own bee hives and a garden on level 3 and run tours daily which are very interesting.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
