After two great days on the Rocky Mountaineer my wife and I spent two nights at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel. Our harbour view room was situated on the 23rd floor giving great views. The room quality was excellent, very comfortable and well equipped. The staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly, particularly the Concierge staff. The hotel is well...

Best sized rooms, great food and in room facilities, fantastic view of the city and the green rooftops. Great for business and family. I was able to work at the desk and enjoy the pool. Food was equally delicious whether in the restaurant, the bar, in meeting or in room dining. Staff were all terrific.

Lovely hotel in a most beautiful part of the city . A little less expensive that the other Fairmonts but nothing is compromised . If it's a good deal , stay on the Gold floor - breakfast there will save you money and is delicious . Appetizers and drinks on the patio overlooking the waterfront is so special .

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in July, and enjoyed it completely. I had a view overlookig the bay which was, I must say, the best I could have asked for.

Stayed at this conveniently located hotel for one night prior to an Alaska Cruise. We were offered an upgrade to an "executive room" for just C$40.00 which was well worth it. I think we landed the best room in the hotel from a view point of view. Another big plus point was the ease of arranging for our luggage to...

I had the pleasure of staying here at the beginning of May just for one night- however, I wish it could've been longer.

The rooms are very large and have...

This hotel is a postcard for the Chain. Our room was spacious and clean with a breath taking view. The bed was so comfortable and the staff were fantastic. The fitness area is loaded with top notch equipment. You can't find a better downtown location. Can't wait to return!

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.
