Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

What a beautiful hotel from the inside and out. Such a lovely environment to be in. The staff is miraculous in what they do. The bar inside has great snacks. A Nice upscale place to chat with friends. Would highly recommend coming here.

Pleasantly surprised by the extraordinary level of this airport hotel, and so glad that I stayed here. This hotel could not be more ideally located, as it’s within the actual terminal. Arrival was simple, easy, and terrific at the end of a long travel day. Warmly greeted by the reception staff, a terrific bellperson, and a room that far exceeded any previous expectations & surpassed any airport hotel I’ve ever stayed at. My room was outstanding, roomy, large screen TV’s, and a bathroom that was great!!! Loved the health club facility, made my stay quite well-rounded. Again, a positive experience as I checked out, and there is no doubt that I will reside at The Farmont for my next Vancouver stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights at the back end of a two week family trip with my 91 yr old mother.

Vancouver is such a lovely city and I would typically stay here when traveling on business as the Gold Floor is the best of all Fairmont’s Canadian properties. Darren Klingbeil is the Gold Floor Manager and he has built a veteran team of senior and experienced concierge level staff that are so personable that they make you feel like you are staying at home.

The hotel is well located within the main downtown shopping area with plenty of good restaurants close by. Rooms are well appointed with ample supplies of the usual amenities. The hotel car (a lovely new BMW) is often available to ferry you to downtown restaurants for dinner.

The bar and dining room have been newly reno’d and while I loved the stylish old one, I have to admit that the current one seems more modern and efficient.

FAIRMONT has 4 hotels in Vancouver. I have stayed in them all and been very pleased. There’s not much to say about the airport location as it is not unique except for its facade. The WATERFRONT is a lovely hotel right next to the cruise boat docks; and the Pacific Rim is the newest and ultramodern FAIRMONT venue just at the edge of the city core…but Hotel Vancouver shares that special baronial look and feel with some of its more famous (but not more functional) sisters such as Banff Springs, Royal York and Ch. Frontenac. It’s a wonderfully comforting blend of old and new…like your favourite chair in the living room.

I stayed here while I was attending a Professional Photographers of Canada photography conference that was occurring across the street. The rooms are very comfortable and the heart of the city, Robson Street, is just around the corner. Perfect for a Vancouver city stay.

I stayed at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for 3 nights recently and honestly do wish that I could have stayed longer. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the staff are professional, helpful and courteous. The breakfast at the hotel restaurant is fantastic – one of the best hot breakfast buffets I’ve seen in years.

Nice location, everything looks fine during our stay. I stayed with corporate rate which makes the experience much a worthy one. But that may not make my experience the same as others who paid higher at market rate. Breakfast is so so, suggest non business customer choose outside crossing streets. Bath room is very small but room size is fine. Fridge has sensor which make it looks like automated than the age of building. Other things all good to me.

We found this hotel very comfortable…location location location. The staff were attentive & helpful. Our rooms very nice the beds & linens super. Fairmont you can’t go wrong. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is a class act. From arrival to departure the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to help. My room was spacious and offered a great view of the downtown.
Accommodation was on the Gold floor. Amazingly friendly, service focused staff.
Midpoint of a several city tour. Received advance shipped luggage, wrapped presents, dry cleaned shirts, mailed correspondence, secured reservations at excellent local restaurants. Met and exceeded all of our expectations. Will be my first choice on any return visits to Vancouver.

The location is fantastic and the history of this charming hotel is intriguing. The rooms were recently renovated and quite classy albeit still very traditional and small. The elevators take a little longer than they should and the walls are very thin. For a good night’s sleep, I highly recommend a white noise app on your phone. But if you can deal with the noise, the beds are super comfy. The staff are attentive and friendly and the conference rooms are quite elegant.

My last stay at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver was probably 15 years ago and I was back for a few nights and noticed the major renovation and redesign of the common areas. I requested for a “renovated” room and was gladly provided with one. The carpets and some of the furnishings have been updated, but the classic design and style of the room remains. A minor disappointment was that some of the finishes (e.g. bathroom vanity) were scratched up and needed some touch up. Regardless, my stay was very good and nothing to complain about. They also gladly allowed me to take a shower in the health club as I was on a red eye flight out and had checked out earlier in the morning.

Stayed here five nights for a conference in room 801.
The hotel itself is very good, staff is mostly attentive no major problems except for housekeeping.Very good downtown location.
What I did not like, was my room. Very small room and the bathroom was even smaller. The size of bathrooms seemed to be a major issue at this location. Also the room was very dusty and the walls are thin. You are able to here everything. The view was a joke, see picture attached. As mentioned before housekeeping was not attentiveHad some issues.
Wifi worked good.

We stayed for 3 nights prior to a trip to Whistler and couldn’t have picked a better hotel. Old stylish hotel, beautiful reception area, made to feel very welcome on check in.
Location was fantastic, used the train from the airport and was a 2 minute walk from the station, so easy and much cheaper than a taxi (and probably just as quick).
Rooms were large for a city centre hotel, huge bed and so comfy. Lovely bathroom.
The hotel was spotless and this included our room on the 13th floor.
The only drawback was that the pool was out of action whilst we were there due to refurbishment.
During out first night (and after a 9 hour flight) the occupants of the next room decided to have a drunken slanging match at 2am….thankfully the management halted this promptly after we reported it!
Would defently recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights on business in late Feb 2017. I could have rated 5 (Excellent) but there were some fairly uncomfortable circumstances.

The room was fantasitic – large & kept clean, albeit slightly dated. The bathroom was ok too (again dated).

The executive lounge on floor 9 was also fantastic with a great selection of breakfast & drinks. The staff there were also amazing.

The reasons for not givng a 5 star were the doormen & some mess about my check-out time.
When I arrived at the hotel, there were a few doormen but they were just chatting & laughing to each other. It appared that they hadn’t even noticed me at all. The taxi driver even said to me “it seems like they don’t want to come for you because there are no lady guests”. What a shame! No greetings, no offer of opening the door at all. I felt very unwelcomed.

As to the check-out time, I requested an extended check-out time until 3pm & I could have sworn that this was confirmed upon check-in. But, on the departure day, I had a call from the reception claiming that the next guest is waiting, how soon can you leave & we have no record of late check-out. Although I should not complain too much because a late check-out should be given at the hotel’s courtesy, it was still not a good experience especially I believed that the request had been accepted.

Gold floor staff are very engaging with their knowledge and interaction at all levels. Food offerings throughout the day on the Gold Floor are amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed the salad in the Mason jar. The Gold Floor offers a comfortable environment for a solo traveller.

Beautiful looking hotel but walls are quite thin so you hear noise from neighbouring rooms and even the city (despise being on 12th floor – surprisingly noisy for a small city). Rooms are large and well appointed. Comfy beds, bathrooms are a bit daggy. Lobbies etc are tastefully decorated. Central location. Restaurant is beautiful but the buffet breakfast was average in both quality and range (compared to other Fairmonts). Bit concerned for the welfare of the dog in the lobby. Didn’t look in the best condition 🙁

I have stayed here on multiple occasions.

The staff is truly 5* special shout out to Devon who made us feel like the most important guests in the hotel. We’re now platinum fpc members starting at this hotel.

The location is fantastic for shopping and sightseeing.

It’s a shame that they got rid of their smoking floor in their most recent renovation. It was a major draw for us. Also the overnight operator that I spoke to a few months ago was extremely rude and nothing like the fairmont service we’re accustomed to.

All in all it’s a great hotel but if I could
make a suggestion, bring back the smoking floor!

This hotel is vastly overpriced for the amenities provided. At over $500 Canadian a night all you get is an ordinary hotel room. It could have been a Holiday Inn. Internet access is an extra charge. No breakfast is provided, nor is there a microwave in the room. We were charged even for the “complimentary” apple which was placed in our room when we checked in.
I contrast this with the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs where, on an earlier trip, we were charged less for a suite of three rooms and a large outside terrace.

This hotel is usually the better priced our of all three Vancouver Fairmont properties. Since their renovation it has become a much better hotel. The restaurant/bar on the main floor is great. The hotel is steps from some of Vancouver’s best restaurants and retail shopping.

I still love the this grand old hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable, and even though our room was not one that has been renovated it was still very comfortable.

The lobby renovations and dining are comets and I look forward to seeing what they have done with the room renovations.

Cannot beat the location, for shopping, dining, and ease from the rapid transit line form the airport.

Truly, the Fairmont brand is just amazing! After leaving Fairmont Calgary, which we adored, we flew to Vancouver and there, in the centre of downtown was another oasis! Check-in and check-out could not have been better. Jane was a true professional and her warmth and generosity of spirit was great! We then were met on the Gold level by Wilson who again was SO professional, informative and warm. Our room was superb as was the lounge with its fine food and ambience. Am very much looking forward to our return stay in 3 days time!

Stayed here for a conference on the 11th floor in a king size room. While I didn’t have a room with a “shower big enough for 4″, my room did have a cast iron deep tub, and I took the hotel up on their free amenity of bath salts for a luxurious soak. I’m 5’8 and the tub was more than comfortable

I can overlook the rose wallpaper for fabulous service, great free tea and coffee service , the free umbrella in my room ( one week of rain”) . I also had trouble with my room card deactivating by demagnetizing in my wallet, and the desk service was more than gracious about addressing this in a timely manner

The bed was wonderful, the pillows anti allergic and perfectly puffy for my tastes.

Walking distance to high priced shopping. Tiffanies, Dior, etc and 3 blocks to a Winners, Nordstrom, old navy and a full shopping mall with a great food court two blocks the other way. I was able to hop the Centre line train from the airport to a short two block walk to the hotel, which was cost efficient and reasonable.

The view of the gargoyle on the hotel roofline made for some great pics to send home, Despite my bad iPhone pic attached.

This place is filled with character and charm of that old world feel of marble floors, fabulous columns that showcased the Christmas theme.

I had free wi-if with my free president club membership for the fairmont.

I also had the best food offered as part of the conference. Breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks that included cappuccino maker. ( dear Fairmont, the toaster for bagels took far too long)

Im loving this place, and it’s a refreshing change from your every day Holiday Inn / Sheraton experience. Not that they aren’t great- this is simply more character with refined charm.

My budget didn’t include Fairmonts Notch restraunt, but don’t under estimate the quality and price of some nearby eateries. I predict you will be happy here.

I’m staying at the hotel now and am definitely disappointed so far. The service, decor and rooms are not nearly as good as their two other properties downtown. I am in an “upgraded” room and the bathroom is so small I have to press up against the wall to close the door (I’m pretty thin). The room is unbelievably noisy as well which makes it hard to sleep at night. Last night, I went to sleep and the room was at a reasonable temperature but woke up at 4am and it felt like I was in a sauna! I guess the thermostat is broken?

My room key card also stopped working and the staff at the front desk were pretty rude about it and implied I must have done something to cause it (its been in my wallet and not near anything that could de magnetize it).

On the plus side, the location is amazing but that’s not enough to make me stay here again when their other two spots are only a few blocks away.

The staff are truly amazing and go well out of their way to be helpful. Our stay was easy and very enjoyable. The hotel is beautiful and it is kept perfectly clean. We felt totally safe, and were very pleased that there was no outside or inside noise at night. We will be back! 🙂
