Spent a weekend at the Pacific Rim. Perfect way to celebrated a birthday. We stayed on the executive floor which we loved. Access to snacks and drinks was very convenient. We were lucky to have great weather which enabled us a spectacular view of the harbor and mountains.

A lovely place to stay. We had booked this through Rocky Mountaineer so had a big discount.

We arrived after a long haul flight and had been advised after checking with the hotel, that we could get a transfer from the airport ot hotel. We found we could not and if it weren't for the help of the Vancouver voulntary visitor guides we would have wasted money to get to hotel. We went via the metro link. When we arrives at the station in Vancouver we were lost and once again thanks to a helpful local who saw we were lost we founf our way to hotel.
Walking from the station we saw a sign which said parking so went around the block only to fin it was the entry.
Check in was efficient. We had joined the Fairmont rewards club. However, the lobby has the reception area and very nearby is a bar with live music in the evening. SO it was hard to hear what was being said to us.
Our room was lovely, spacious with great views. I could not fault the room in any way.
As part of the Rocky MOuntaineer we were given a voucher for a free meal at the resturant. We were looking forward to the Japanese meal. However we were not able to get this and had to choose from a very limited menu and the meal was average to say the least.
The staff were ever so helpful. We used the free car service to get us to a couple of places. We wanted to leave in a safety deposit box foreign currency and other documents. It was arranged and I had a interesting and good time putting this away.
We also left luggage between our trip and coming back to Vancouver.
It was a good place to stay, but I would not pay full price for the hotel.
There was no option to choose different pillows, so we had to use down pillows which didn't suit either of us. We found this in all Fairmont Hotels.

Room Tip: Habour view is lovely

A new modern high-tech Fairmont. Control your lighting (select your mood) through the controls on the wall or the in-room iPad. Luxurious bathroom, with in-mirror television. Location across the street from the convention centre and cruise ship ports.

My wife and I stayed in one of the signature Ofuro rooms and found it to be exceptional. A luxurious deep jetted bath tub overlooking the harbor and convention centre with our bedroom overlooking the city, it doesn't get any better. Room is equipped with an Ipad that controls all of your room settings from lights, curtains and room heat/ac. This is a world class hotel with amenities that set the bar in Vancouver. Don't miss a happy hour or evening meal in the lobby lounge which offers sushi and live entertainment or a great breakfast buffet in ORU and a funky wine bar Giovane on the main level. If you think it might rain and you want to be in a place where you never feel the need to leave, the Rim is the place to stay. We rarely dine in hotels, but this one is the Hotel where you will want to dine in for every meal- Outstanding. We highly recommend.

As a local, we have stayed at this hotel several times, both for pleasure and for business. The Rooms are elegantly appointed with ipads and remote controlled drapery. There is an in-laid LCD TV in the bathroom. Everyone loves the pool and the hot tub.The buffet breakfast at the ORU restaurant is a must. The piano bar is one of the favourite night spots in Vancouver. They have complimentary BMW 7 series shuttles and bikes too....absolute luxury :-)

This is one of the most modern hotels I have stayed at thus far. Room has automatic lighting controls with panels throughout the room (by the entrance, desk, bed, bathroom) - with lighting scenes accommodating time of day/mood. The room also has an iPad, and the iPad can control certain room functions (like do not disturb, lights, temperature, window shades). I believe you can also order room service from the iPad.

Location is nice - great location downtown Vancouver. Staff are excellent, great customer service and very accommodating.

Room Tip: If placed in a room on the south side, get a higher floor to avoid construction noise.
