Stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights for some Vancouver sightseeing at the end of a ski trip. Great location in the city centre. The hotel room was ok although the bathroom could do with some updating. We were out sightseeing most of the time so the room was not that important. Hotel staff were all excellent with great service in all areas. Facilities were good and the historic nature of the hotel is a nice experience. Went elsewhere for drinks and meals as we found the atmosphere a little highbrow and stuffy. We were at the end of a month long holiday and were enjoying ourselves and the sight of all those suits in the bar and restaurants wasn't our scene but I guess that is what you get in an inner city hotel mid week.
The Bellagio cafe a few doors away is a great place for a drink, lunch or dinner. It is very relaxed with a great atmosphere and good food at reasonable prices.
For sightseeing there is a good 4.5 hour bus tour which is good for seeing the city and getting familiar with inner Vancouver with a good commentary. It gets you up the lookout tower as well. Just ask at the concierge desk, they are very helpful. For any other looking around Vancouver the day pass for all local public transport, bus, seabus and skytrain is only $9 and is worthwhile.
