Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Vancouver

We spent one night only in May, in hindsight this was too short. The hotel let us leave bags for a few days while we went to Victoria which was great.
Check in was easy and quick and our room on floor 11 had a great view over the harbour to the mountains. The fitness centre and sauna were clean and well run and the pool area popular as it was a warm day.
All requests to the hotel, such as milk for coffee, a shave kit etc were not a problem and delivered very quickly.
The hotel is in a great location waking distance to the cruise terminal, Gastown, the lookout, waterfront and anywhere else you would want to go. When back in Vancouver i’d stay again, the hotel lived up to my expectations in every way.

A million thanks for offering such a beautiful and comfortable and distinguished and well placed affordable hotel. Magnificent! The most perfect bathroom ever and the most comfortable bed. Really enjoyed and loved it. Service plus than first class. Specially room service.

The staff were very helpful, from a magnificent room with panoramic view to the mountains, great advice on the sights of Vancouver and excellent help with correspondence home. Central to our needs and across the road from Canada Place and Tour pickups.

We were not staying here but decided to have breakfast as we were at waterfront. And boy were we ever pleased with our choice. I swear the smoked salmon was the best I HAVE EVER TASTED. Both the cold and hot tables were very well presented and constantly renewed. We had many differing breakfasts during our stay in Vancouver but this without doubt was #1

We arrived for only one night’s stay. Cruising out in the morning. We were greeted by a very friendly hotel attendant (Alfredo) outside who whisked our luggage to our room for us, told us where our cruise ship terminal was (across the street – couldn’t have been better), and told us they would hold our luggage for us upon returning. We didn’t fly out until 5 pm, and came off the cruise ship at 8 am. The concierge was very helpful to us in organizing a tour.
The room: Wow! We were on the 19th floor. View of the harbour was excellent.
Bed was super comfortable.
The restaurant: Breakfast was to die for. Get the brunch buffet!
Overall opinion: Wished we could have stayed here longer. This hotel is a winner! We want to go back another time!!!

We were here for a week, and it was very nice, but not really quite a “5 star Fairmont” level. We had Gold Level, although I suspect the rooms are identical.

But first, the best: The concierge team at the Gold Lounge… they were absolutely the BEST of *any* “club level” type lounge we’ve encountered (including at other Fairmonts).
They were extremely pleasant, which is always a good starting point.
But…. EVERY request… well… they often anticipated the question/request and were offering to help (or “get something”) before we could even finish the request/question.

Separately, the snacks were, for the most part, among the best we’ve had, also. This is especially notable given that the Lounge was relatively small.
A couple of the “scone type” baked items (not sure what to call them) were soooo tender, they just about melted in one’s mouth. We had to exercise some serious self-restraint to avoid putting on a few pounds a day if we had eaten what we’d have liked to have eaten.

The room was small, and the bathroom wasn’t special. But everything was modern and very clean.
The shower was very large (but I do miss those large soaking tubs top hotels were more likely to have in the past). And, very nice, the “overhead” rainshower head was slightly tilted.
However, given the placement of the fixtures and the fixed glass wall (not the door half), it was very inconvenient to try to turn the water on and adjust the temp the first time, trying to keep out of the way. Fortunately, the way the on/off/temp control worked meant that we could just keep the temp position fixed. It didn’t need to be moved to turn the water on/off. (Neither of us remembers this being a problem with other hotel showers that appeared similar.)

Importantly, there were sufficient drawers in the room, for unpacked clothing.
(Somehow, there seems to be a trend – elsewhere – NOT to have drawers, and in some cases, not even shelves. Do other hotels think their guests have perhaps two sets of clothes, one to wear and the other to be sent out for dry cleaning every day!? Pan Pacific Hotel, across the street, we are looking at YOU here!)

The bath linens were especially soft. That does make a difference, too. These things are noticed.
On the other hand, the toilet paper is of the most flimsy type. Doesn’t a Fairmont warrant “nicer” TP? (Seriously?)
We’ve owned vacation rental properties, and our managers laughed at us for using “expensive” Charmin. It matters to us; it matters to our own guests, too. (We had ONE complaint very early on about this, and we immediately cleared out all the cheaper TP and tissues, and provided “good” supplies thereafter.)

The bed was slightly on the “too firm” side, although we recognize that bed firmness/softness is a very personal thing. Can’t please everyone with one standard issue. But it did *not* interfere at all with comfortable sleeping (although we were just a bit concerned at bedtime the first night).

One suggestion: Given that Gold Level guests are supposed to “check in” on the Gold Level floor, it would help to have some indication that there is no keycard required for that floor. Most Gold/Club levels do have keycard restricted access.

We have previously stayed at the Fairmont Pacific Rim and also at the Pan Pacific. The Pacific Rim has terrific bathrooms (yes, it makes a difference), and their Gold Lounge has a much better view of the water and mountains, so that’s probably still our first choice.
But my goodness… the Gold Lounge Concierges at the Waterfront… Right. I already mentioned them!
But they absolutely deserve a second mention 馃檪

Bottom line, we would be happy to stay here again, if the other Fairmont, the Pacific Rim, wasn’t available.
And it’s head and shoulders above the Pan Pacific, without any question.

The little things made a HUGE difference. The staff is obviously very well trained. Best customer service I have seen in Vancouver, by far. We stayed for my girlfriends birthday. They found out the occasion and she was gifted a gorgeous slice of cake. I asked for a room at a higher level, and was accommodated (23rd floor, WOW).

The hotel is well located with waterfront access at its front door and only a short walk to Gastown, downtown and Chinatown, and a 20-30 min stroll to beautiful Stanley Park with all its amazing elements. Waterfront amenities – sea planes, ferries, charters – abound. The food and drink on site is top of the line and the live music in the lounge is really enjoyable. Bonus points – they know how to make a real martini there. The Gold Floor lounge and amenities are exceptional, as is the Fairmont experience in general. Upscale restaurants in great variety nearby.

The staff were phenomenal! I really enjoyed the text service; it was quick and efficient. I required an Ipod dock and texted the staff who brought it up right away.

A great property. I have been here for everything from tea and special occassions to New Years. I have always had a great experience. Close to the skytrain from the airport as well so you can beat the traffic coming in during work hours.

We stayed at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel some years ago and were favorably impressed, so it was an easy decision to overnight there on an intermediate stop from Minneapolis to Hong Kong. Our hotel room was sparkling in every way with spotless carpeting, undamaged paint, wall coverings and furnishing just as a five star property should be (but so often isn’t). The room was spacious, well lit and the king bed excellent. Service was impeccable. Our package included an excellent breakfast and we had a fine evening meal as well. The location is quite convenient for downtown Vancouver as well.
Since their renovation this hotel has come a long way. The views are great if you fave the port or Stanley Park. The pool has a wonderful view in the evening. Fairmont offers a hotel vehicle for drop off locations within downtown which is great when its difficult to find a cab. I would definitely stay here again.

The most comfortable and quiet hotel room I have had in a long time! Large beautiful room with a view of the waterfront, very comfortable bed, great shower and luxurious towels. Breakfast buffet in the Gold lounge included eggs, bacon, pancakes, quality cereal, delicious smoked salmon, cheeses, breads, muffins, pastries and fresh fruit! A real treat! I highly recommend this hotel. The service is impeccable.

Great location as it is central to downtown, gas town and Stanley Park. Hotel is amazing, expected for Fairmont standards.
Was surprised that complimentary wifi is not included, you’d expect this as the rooms don’t come cheap…

We spent our last night in Vancouver city here, as we wanted to be right downtown and it was a fantastic experience. Just a very short walk from the train station, we got the Skytrain from the airport. I joined the Fairmont Presidents Club and it lives up to its promises. I booked online that morning and received a confirming email re ETA etc which was great as we were arriving late and I wanted to let the hotel know that. Check in was smooth and we were upgraded to a fantastic corner suite with harbour views. Even the bathroom had a nice big window with city views. Comfortable bed and plenty of space in our room. Had a great breakfast the next morning and left our bags with the concierge for the day. From our experience you can’t fault Fairmont staff and service. Oh yes I had better mention another of their great services – electronic checkout – I love it. Thank you Fairmont

Weekend away in Vancouver with family. The Fairmont Waterfront gold floor made us to feel at home. The staff was so warm and nice. We are already planning our next visit to “Vancouver” just because of the hotel.

Hotel is very lovely and the staff are very polished… which you would expect at a Fairmont. Location is great with nice views. Very convenient for the cruise terminal. Rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Just very expensive.

Arrived mid morning and was advised room would be ready around 3pm. We left luggage with concierge and were given map and great walking itinerary by very friendly and helpful young man. Got into room around 2pm which was good as we were very weary. Room was on 17th floor with great views down harbour. Very comfy with everything we needed, including 2 bottles of free water and a great coffee machine.
Excellent buffet breakfast and free WiFi completed our positive experience with this hotel.
Location great next to Canada Place, short walk from Gastown and major shopping.
