Right from the moment we arrived everything was taken care of. It was a long flight and we were tired, our room on the 23rd floor couldnt have been better. Spacious and well eqipped. We dined at the restaurant, just beautiful amazing service. I thoroughly recommend this hotel. Close to everything.

We have stayed at a number of Fairmont Hotels over the years and have had some excellent experiences (usually). The Fairmont Waterfront was exceptional in regard to service from the moment we arrived until when we departed five days later. We had indicated that we expected an early arrival and the hotel promised to do what it could to accommodate...

Stayed here for a week during a work trip, and it felt like home. The hotel is beautiful, the staff incredible, and I couldn't have asked for better. From the momebnt I pulled up and the doorman handed me my room key without me having to check in, I was hooked.

I expected a very comfortable hotel and that's what I got after the somewhat chilly check in was completed. The young man at the front desk couldn't initially find my name and then when that was resolved and I'd fumbled for a few seconds finding picture ID he very coolly gave me my key and pointed me in the direction...

The hotel is located near the water and Stanley park. Just about everything is within a 15-minute walk: the Park, the Beach, Gastown, and BC Place. The rooms are well appointed and are large. The views can be breathtaking on the upper floors as they gaze across Stanley Park. The staff is the usual Fairmont kind: well trained and attentive....

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
