Reviewed February 11, 2013

If you want ever need to be taken care of as if you are the only person staying here then this is the place for you. The best staff out of any hotel I have ever stayed at. Fantastic food served at the eateries. Perfect location on right by the water,Canada Place and Stanley Park. The sea wall passes right in front of this wonderful hotel. It is worth every penny you spend there. The best hotel in the best city in the world!

Room Tip: Upgrade your room to a view of the harbor/mountains...well worth it to wake up to that view every si...

As Vancouver residents, this is the hotel we pick for a romantic evening when we need an easy escape. It's expensive, but luxurious, so it feels worth it. The rooms have iPads to place room service orders, automated blinds and lighting settings, and spectacular views of the North Shore mountains and water, Canada Place and the green roof of the convention centre. Decor is west coast elegant - dark wood, white sheets, cool colours - and instead of typical art there's a restful backlit scene of a forest above the bed. Room service options are varied and delicious, and the menu in Oru gives you a taste of Vancouver's Asian-influenced cuisine. Rooms are quiet and serene, and lying in bed gazing out the floor to ceiling windows at the mountains and water is the epitomy of a Vancouver experience. Even better, rooms with the Ofuro Japanese tubs let you sit immersed to your shoulders while enjoying the view. The spa is also outstanding, with outdoor hot tubs.

Stayed for four nights as part of an event at the convention center across the street. I stayed in room 1523, which is a two room suite. The room was very tastefully decorated in a minimalist Asian style. Both rooms were spacious and comfortable. The lobby is welcoming and even smells good. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. The lobby bar has live music and a nice vibe. Overall, it was one of the nicest hotel stays I've had.

My wife and I spent three nights in the hotel and the place is simply amazing. The RMT at the spa did a great job of taking the stress out of my neck area and the dinner at the Oru was delicious. Something to e experienced.

I stayed one night after an office event at the hotel. The hotel was fully booked but you couldn't tell - the room was quiet and the service was great.
This hotel has lovely spacious rooms. The bathrooms have a large shower and a tv imbedded in the mirror. The wood accents in the room and the decor is very pacific northwest.
Nice touch that everything in the room (lights, curtains, tv, temperature) can be controlled by an in-room Ipad. Another nice touch was the nespresso machine. I didn't have to use the desk but it would be well kitted out for business use.
You can definitely tell there was a lot of thought put into this hotel.
Had breakfast in bed and it was delicious and on-time.
One tip- make sure you enjoy the lobby bar. Aside from the great guitar player the cocktails are great- and it is a fantastic place to people-watch!
Great job, Fairmont!

Having been to Vancouver several times and experiencing various lodging options in this beautiful city, the Sept '12 stay was the best yet. Hotel was built for 2010 Winter Olympics and is state of the art in design, ambiance, location, staffing and room accomodations. It is 5 star quality from the lobby, to the beds & fabulously designed bathrooms that includes a TV in the vanity mirror, spa tub & full body shower heads. Linens, abundance of electronic ports and an IPad for controlling room functions is just a sampling of the attention to guest comforts. Outstanding hotel!
