Another wonderful experience at the Fairmont Waterfront. This time we stayed in a suite with family pre-cruise. I loved our suite which was 2 separate rooms and an outdoor space that led right to the swimming pool. The kids loved it especially since they could run around outside and look right over the balcony to the cruise ship terminal. The... More

Great high end hotel. If you have a room with a waterview, it's wow. Located very close to the convention centre if you are there for business. Also close to Stanley Park and Gastown. Also underground connection.

Lovely hotel. Really comfortable and great service. Perfectly positioned if you are catching a ship and you can even have your luggage transferred direct to your ship. If you are not cruising this is still a good position for the waterfront location and lots of good places to eat. We found the breakfast at the hotel expensive. If you are... More

For the amount of money we spent for one night here, this experience was underwhelming in every way. They were an hour late with check in time, and considering we had been traveling since 1:30am their time I don't think having the room ready by 3pm should be a hardship. We were given excuse after excuse & the concierge on... More

We drove up from Seattle and booked two connecting rooms for the family. The kids had fun in the pool and we enjoyed the food and drinks while they splashed around. Lots of great restaurants in walking distance and some fun places to see and hang out. The room was great, amazing harbor views. The service was first rate from... More

Staff was friendly, rooms are clean and new/updated, the ARC restaurant is superb, and the staff went above and beyond our expectations. Be sure to take advantage of the bikes they have for guests to check out free of charge and take a bike around the sea wall.

This is a lovely property, especially if you're willing to go for a right lung for a room which affords you double sided water views. It is well-located for tourists, and well-used by cruise lines in the summer months. This is a gorgeous city, with much to offer tourists, especially tourists who have, and are willing to spend mega bucks.... More

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.
