My husband and I tired the new Pacific Rim Fairmont in Vancouver for the first time this week-end. We have stayed at all of the other Fairmonts in Vancouver, Whistler and Seattle and love them all but I have to say that the Pacific Rim is a step above all of these other fine hotels. The service was top notch, we felt spoiled! The Hotel is set in one of the most beautiful settings in the world with views that will take your breath away. Our room was a Signature View King corner suite on the 17th floor. The room was outstanding, very high tech with remote curtains, spa lighting, beautiful decor and the bathroom was the nicest I've ever seen, even better than high end hotels in Vegas. The wrap around windows overlooking the harbor with the snow-dusted mountains and the 5 sails from Canada place in the background were amazing! The funky square soaker tub was the highlight as it was placed right against the window and you could sit and soak in the jetted lighted tub while looking out over the city.
We booked the Breakfast in Bed/Spa package and it was a week-end of pampering! The spa was also one of the best I've ever visited and you won't find a more beautiful backdrop of scenery anywhere. The outdoor private hot tubs overlooked the harbor and the city. The amenities were incredible. The ladies change room went on forever including a cozy lounge with a fireplace, coffee, teas, snacks.....the showers and steams rooms were so nice. Don't leave the spa without trying the "Experience Shower".
Valet service is expensive but so is the parking if you choose to park yourself. It's worth the service and ease that it adds to your holiday. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service with their own BMW's which is a classy touch! Most everything is in walking distance so you rarely need to worry about transportation
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is coming to Vancouver to experience the best the city has to offer. Also don't miss trying on the Sugar Buns at the cafe G in the hotel.....you will think you've died and gone to heaven. .
