This hotel has been by far the best hotel we have ever stayed. Right from the start they were very accommodating. We had a early flight in and they accommodated an early check in, and had prompt service bringing a fridge to the room. The staff were very friendly during our entire 6 night stay, always greeting us as we... More

Everything was outstanding: the room, the staff, the service, the food, and the view of the harbor. Entire family thought this was the best hotel they have ever stayed in. We all had a marvelous time.

Beautiful hotel right on the cruise terminal and walking distance to all of downtown and Stanley Park! We spent three nights here before getting on a cruise ship and loved everything about it. Beautiful rooms and views (we were able to watch our cruise ship arrive from our room), great service and location.

Unlike other Fairmont Hotels, this one doesn't measure up. Slippers? You have to ask. Newspaper? Unavailable. Wifi? If you're lucky. You won't get the personal attention that you're accustomed to with other Fairmont hotels.

As always we had a wonderful stay at the Fairmont. I would strongly recommend reserving the Gold Floor. There is no service better than what you get on the Gold Floor. The location is fantastic. If you are a runner, the location is perfect

Stayed on the Fairmont Gold level so checked in directly on 9th floor. We were a group of 9 and check in was simple, easy and staff very helpful, pleasant and explained everything to us including good places... More

Great location for access to the cruise terminal, Stanley Park and walk into the Gastown Historic District you really can just walk out of the hotel to all these things. The Hotel is quite commercial in nature but is of a good standard with large rooms. Showing a little age and use but comfortable clean and staff helpful and friendly.... More

A large hotel with 5 star accommodation, ideally located for the city centre, all transport and opposite the Cruise terminal, being ideal if you want to Cruise from Vancouver. Suggest you request a room in the central parts of the building, away from the corners and lifts which can be noisy.

Big and luxurious hotel down on the Harbour waterfront. We had a huge level 10 bedroom with a king size bed, view over the Harbour. Bathroom counter top wasn't clean when we checked in but it was quickly fixed whilst we were out. Bit of a walk up hill into the cbd. Plenty of restaurants located around the hotel. City... More

A great hotel to stay at especially if one is doing an Alaskan cruise as the hotel takes your luggage to the ship and the port is just across the road. Overall a beautiful hotel very clean with lovely rooms, beautiful views and very helpful friendly staff.

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.
