“Central location”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

All Fairmonts are known for their character and this is no exception. It is easy to access from the SkyTrain. The Canada Line took me easily from the airport to an easy walk from the hotel. The hotel is situated close to high end shopping and good restaurants, so no car is necessary here. There are also ample taxis available from the hotel should you wish to go further afield. The rooms were older, as expected, but clean and spacious. The staff was professional. The conference facilities, however, need better lighting and acoustics. I suppose this is a result of the age of the hotel.

We enjoyed four very comfortable nights at the Fairmont.
Rooms were very comfortable however no bar fridge was unexpected.
Close to shopping precinct and easy walk to waterfront.
Good restaurants in close proximity.
The hotel is reminicent of another era with great foyer and open bar for relaxing in after a long days sightseeing.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The foyer labradors were also an unobtrusive but nice touch at the start and end of the day.

We stayed three nights in The Fairmont Vancouver which is ideally located downtown - close to shopping, dining and transport. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. The concierge service was excellent: not just giving clear directions but by offering helpful suggestions and going the "extra mile" to help. But, that is what we expect from Fairmont Hotels.

Right in the heart of the city, the location of this iconic Vancouver hotel is great if you want to be in the centre of things. The shops on Robson are minutes away and there are several metro/sky train stops nearby.

This is a typical, sprawling fairmont property and we were treated courteously if impersonally at the counter. We requested same day dry-cleaning after the cut off hour and the staff were really helpful to accommodate us.

Our standard room was large with all the amenities you'd expect. We didn't use any of the facilities - so many great places to eat out in Vancouver it would be a shame to miss out.

Nothing spectacular to write home about, but certainly an enjoyable stay. You expect a certain standard from a fairmont and this didn't disappoint

We dined here for two Sundays and received the treatment which you would expect from Fairmont. The settting was reminicient of goneby days and the service matched that as well. The staff were friendly, pleasant and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and the sweet table was heaven! The reason we reurned on the second Sunday was because of the service received on the first Sunday. Highly recommended

I've always wanted to stay in a Fairmont after seeing the ones in Banff and Lake Louise. This lovely grand hotel has seen it's better days, but they are renovating so it has a chance to redeem itself. The service was excellent, the staff was very nice and helpful. I'd recommend a drink in the bar, they have a vintage menu which was nice but pricey. Would have loved to see the top floor or ballroom which is closed except for spencial occasions. Very convenient to the sky train and central city. Once we checked in, they offered extras for $100 a night which included internet in the room, breakfast, and happy hour drinks, etc. Since we were sightseeing and not there a lot, we decided not to.

Overall Fairmont Vancouver is a great hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the service is fantastic, the location is right in the heart of vancouver downtown, the gym is really well equipped for a hotel, the pool is really nice but it is expensive. Given there are lots of good accommodation options in Vancouver i'm not sure this one is value for money. We stayed in quite a lot of Fairmont hotels whilst in Canada and this is was the most comfortable. The beds weren't overly soft like the other ones and air conditioning actually worked in this room. If you have the money then i would highly recommend it but otherwise i'd shop around first...oh and there's no free wifi which is really strange given how much it costs...
