It's a nice hotel, located at the Vancouver downtown waterfront. But there are several problems during our stay. In the end, we had to check out earlier and changed our whole vacation schedule.
To be fair, I list pros and cons below:
Outside wall and glasses are not noise preventive. During midnight, we were waken up several times by motorcycle noise from the street. motorcycler race is quite often during midnight.
There is a construction side across the street and it starts working at 7 am. Quite a bit noise and louder enough to wake you up. So if you are not an early bird, you should be aware of it.
Service including both housekeeping and luggage pick-up is slow. 20-minute-waiting is normal.
Besides, I had stomach flu after buffet breakfast in the hotel. (quite severe) My husband felt all right. I guess I had something that he did not have.
Staffs are very friendly.
Hotel inside infrastructure meets five-star standards.
Managers show concern on our unfortunate stay and hopefully there is way to have it fixed. Otherwise, guests will have to be away from Fairmont Hotel lines.
