I've just returned from a business trip and spent six nights at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. No complaints. Everything was very good. Impeccable service - friendly, efficient and sincere. Very spacious and comfortable room (wardrobe a little small) with a really comfy bed. Good wifi connection, and good technology overall including electronic switches for opening and closing drapes and TV in the mirror of the bathroom. I tried out the rooftop pool and jacuzzi, which is heated and open right through winter. Its some experience swimming in an open air pool in subzero temperatures (can this be environmentally friendly though??). Very well located - just across the road from the Vancouver Convention Centre. There is even a tunnel to take you from the hotel to the Convention centre - ideal when cold or wet outside. The bar in the lobby is very lively with lots of young local artists getting the chance to showcase their talent. Good sushi bar too. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which looks out on the Olympic Flame in the hope that it will be lit when you are the...

After staying at the property sveral times and eperiencing all types of rooms, there has never been a bad experience. From the Valet staff to the Front Desk to the CLeaning staff, all are welcoming and friendly. They make you feel like your patronage is important and go out of their way to fulfill your every wish! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are exquisite and every detail is taken care of from USB plug ins to single brew coffee makers. It's all there!. The bar staff are always friendly and will serve to your request! You won't regret staying here!

Went to Vancouver for new years ever and it could not have been more perfect! The service and the staff were supreme! Our room had incomparable views.....worth every penny.... The Fairmont knows how to treat a guest. My husbands hot chocolate came with a bowl of miniature marshmallows...ah room service! Great location and Van who works as a concierge on the gold floor is worth his wait!

We booked the Fairmont Gold Room, which was incredible. From the moment we arrived we were escorted to our lovely room overlooking the Harbour and Mountains. The room was modern but has character. The best part of the booking Gold is the Staff and Lounge. The staff were simply amazing and would do anything for you. I cannot mention specific names as they were all so good. We had a baby with us and they all went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic stay. The lounge is also beautiful with fantastic views. Throughout the day the put on lovely food and the most impressive being breakfast. We also used the Spa a few times which was extremely relaxing and peaceful. Although we did not have any treatments we did use the hot tubs, steam room and relaxation area

We had a lovely time at this hotel and cannot wait to return!

We have stayed here a few times and love it. Sure it's expensive but if you check around on the Fairmont site there are usually great deals. The service and staff are always amazing and thoughtful. We are Fairmont President's Club members [Free] and take advantage of the free wifi, free car rides in their fleet of BMW's, and numerous other perks. Rooms a clean, spacious, and modern with great views if you are on the water side. One thing to note though is that the city views might not be to everyone's liking due to close proximity of the office towers to the south, east, and west of the hotel. Try to ask for a harbour view if you can. The lounge is fantastic for people watching, music, food, and drinks. We also saw the Anaheim Ducks there last Saturday before the game and a few staff members mentioned that it's the place to spot both local and out of town NHL'ers. The pool is great, although outdoors only, and can be chilly in the winter. My wife spend some time in the spa and loved it.

From my initial arrival to my departure this hotel offered nothing but unparalleled service and class. I was immediately upgraded to a different room upon checking in and from that point on the Pacific Rim continued to deliver the little add on's that make you feel comfortable and impress even the most discerning traveler. Whether it was the car service that delivered me to and picked me up at downtown restaurants, having Giovave (in house cafe and deli) add extra goodies to my take out orders, or having housekeeping heat up my left overs, the Pacific Rim redefines the word service.
The rooms are sleek, modern and extremely comfortable and a turn down service was offered nightly(without request). The gym, pool and spa areas are impeccable and make working out a pleasure.
All of the staff are friendly and engaging and that fact that this is a non union hotel shows in the unparalleled service that is offered.
This hotel truly stands alone in terms of service and comfort! You will not be disappointed.

Stayed here for one night as part of a birthday celebration. Requested an upgrade and received a room with a balcony (22nd floor) overlooking Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, NS mountains. Beautiful view! Upgrade included access to Fairmont Gold services which included access to the Gold Lounge, spa amenities, etc. Top notch service from everyone we encountered - bellhop, front desk staff and lounge staff. We had drinks and snacks in the Lobby Lounge which was busy and great for people watching (Saturday night). Used the hot tub and pool and both were fantastic. The pool was the warmest outdoor pool I have ever been in. The spa is gorgeous. We had access to the steam room, shower "experience" room, lounge (with complimentary tea, coffee and light snacks), hot tubs and sauna as part of Fairmont Gold. Would love to come back in the summer to spend some time in the outdoor seating area! Excellent "staycation" and will highly recommend!

Room Tip: As per earlier reviews, ask for a higher floor facing Stanley Park. Rooms with a balcony are fantast...
