My favourite hotel in Vancouver

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Pros: This was my 4th visit & I always feel like I've never left.
Location: On waterfront opposite the cruise ship terminal. Walking distance to downtown, Granville Island. Hop on/of buses are right outside
As always, great staff who are all very welcoming. Was great catching up with the awesome staff at the ARC bar/restaurant, after my last visit in 2015.

Quality hotel near the waterfront

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Walked from our Holland America cruise to this hotel This is a huge plus since you get expedited departure. This is a quality hotel with prices to match and in this case our experiences were all positive. We usually avoid the hotel restaurant but this is one worth trying. Especially enjoyed the bar snacks, with the best chicken wings.

Nice hotel close to the docks,

Posted Jun 12, 2017
Pros: The valets were our first impression & they were super nice & full of information. Check-in staff was very friendly and accommodating as well.
Cons: It would be very nice to have had 2 queen size beds instead of the double beds in the rooms.
Location: Location is great for cruise ships, food, free shuttles to attractions, buses, tours....
This hotel is excellent if you are planning to catch a cruise. Close to docks, able to take your luggage to the ship for you, clean, the valets are excellent & very willing to assist in anything you need.

A fantastic stay

Posted Jun 9, 2017
I booked this hotel as part of a 10th wedding anniversary celebration and the staff could not have done more. From the moment of check in to upgrading (at a reasonable cost) to the Fairmont Gold. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful and exhibited the highest of customer service. The hotel itself has great facilities and a fantastic location. Every staff member from housekeeping to concierge to transportation were well informed and helpful. I look forward to staying again in the future.

Nice hotel & location

Posted May 31, 2017
The hotel is great and location too on waterfront. However checking is not till 3pm and absolutely no flexibility there!!! So if you have a 12 hours flight arriving morning time, you really feel annoying that absolutely no flexibility is done or offered... because of that i will never stay again at the Fairmont!! I will go next time to Pan Pacific across

Best hotel I have ever stayed in

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Everything
The moment we entered the hotel we felt at home, everyone was smiling and welcoming us as if they know us from before. The room was super clean and the bathroom as well. The beds and the pillows were very comfy and crest clean.The view from the room was amazing, you keep looking all day without getting bored. Thanks for the complimentary bowl of fruits and the water bottles, they were amazing.
