“friendly as can be”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Not as luxurious as one would expect, given the cost of rooms; however, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Very convenient location for a convention and within walking distance of most sights. Room somewhat on the small size but comfortable and quiet. Rooms with great views are more expensive. Food in restaurant uneven; one morning fantastic, another, same order, less so.

Room Tip: pay a little more and ask for a room with an exquisite view

I was attending a convention, so with the group rate and the proximity (right across the streeet) of the convention center, this was a good choice for us. Be prepared to pay New York City prices for parking as valet parking is your only option. However, they were always prompt to bring the car around when requested. In-hotel dining offers good options. The staff were extremely helpful and able to accommodate some special requests. TIP: If you join the Fairmont's loyalty club for free, your wi-fi is free for the rest of your stay. We had frequent difficulties with our wi-fi dropping out, so I would have been annoyed had we paid for it.

Return visit and slightly disappointed to see that no modernisation had taken place. Tried to book Pacific Rim which was full.
Bedroom OK but could hear the plumbing in an adjacent room.
Great people again which I think is a Fairmont strength but spend some money on the rooms to match the competition and the stunning location.
I'd still go back though!

Room Tip: Previous visit had a water view which is far nicer than the city view we had this time.

Spent 5 days at the Fairmont Waterfront and all aspects of the stay were top notch. Amenities were great, views lovely. This is a very nice and well appointed downtown hotel. The price is not cheap but Vancouver is not cheap, so the price seemed just about right.

Great modern hotel in the heart of downtown. Watch the seaplanes landing right in front of the hotel. Walk to transit for easy access for dinner places. Ask for a room with a western view for the best views of the harbour. If your budget permits, get a room on the Gold level. Breakfast and evening canapes are worth the extra money. Great service throughout the hotel but particularly on the Gold level.
You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Big difference between the east and west side of hotel. Ask for west side!
