This Hotel is amazing, the Staff is in open arms and treats you like royalty, doesn't matter who you are! The view from the rooms is nothing more than spectacular. the out door pool with the scenery of downtown and the bay is breath taking, and yes, pets are welcome. the hotel has a glamorous feel and well taken care of. shopping and dinning is everywhere. This is a Must stay for my family every time I come to Vancouver as it should be yours!

It is a bit spooky how quickly this hotel feels like a safe haven in a glorious city. The hotel wraps you in friendliness, and the soaring lobby is welcoming, not intimidating. The staff is the real jewel in the crown. Stay here once, you will claim it as your own.

Each time I stay the the Fairmont the service gets better and better. I just signed up for the Presidents Club and was beyond thrilled when I drove up to the door the the door staff just handed my my keys to my room. If you think about waiting in a line to check in. The fairmone knows you just need to get down to doing what you need to do. Staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. I would definatley recommend you stay

The location is great, short walk to Sky Train. Rooms very comfortable, clean and commodious enough. Gym facilities, steam room, etc. great. Restaurant offers a wide choice for breakfast with lovely fresh fruit, etc.

Spend 2 night here for a conference and it was great. Lived up to the Fairmont brand. Location was very good and staff very very friendly. My only concern is when hotels of this scale still insist on charging for internet use, just a little irk of mine. Otherwise a great stay. Just be ware the pool is outside, hot is inside but pool outside. Used it in November and was fine I am sure it would be gorgeous in the summer!

We stayed on a special three night rate and were lucky enough to get an upgrade to a room with a partial ocean view. The hotel is lovely. Our room was very nice but we had a room with two queens and there was only one night table between the two beds. In addition, there were not enough electrical outlets at the desk. Finally, the room was big enough that it could have used another piece of 'lounging' furniture. That being said, my husband was very impressed with the package of cables to hook up any device to the television.

The location is really super - easy walking distance to the main shopping areas, close to the train station and easy access to the seawall for a nice run to Stanley Park! Staff were very friendly. Would we stay again? Definitely.

We visited the Fairmont Waterfront for our anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised with a free room upgrade and a complimentary chocolates nuts and chocolate covered strawberries in the room. The hotel is very conveniently located in downtown Vancouver within walking distance of the Waterfront sky train station. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
