A conference took us back to the Fairmont Waterfront for a 3rd time. Its just across the street from the convention centre. The hotel is so consistent with the service and quality expected of a Fairmont. Starting with the welcome from the door staff to breakfast with a smile. I asked for a room move to a higher floor as...

This is a nice hotel in a great location down by the cruise ship dock and walking or jogging distance around the bay to Stanley Park, with a really interesting series of pictorial plaques on the route explaining the history of the area and some of its colorful characters. My room was not on the side with the nice views,...

I dropped in late one night on business and was promptly greeted by the bellman as he opened the car door and pulled my luggage from the trunk of the cab. The hostess at the front desk greeted me with a smile, and after a quick and seamless check-in, I made my way up to my room. I enjoyed a...

Busy place to get to and from. International flair with lots of great restaurants near by. You can walk to Stanley Park, China Town, Gaston. Two night stay. Convenient to just about everything. Concierge was friendly and genuinely helpful. Nothing particularly special about the hotel otherwise, but right across from cruise ship terminal which is a nice plus if going...

My wife and I spent another night (we have stayed here a few times before), but this time without our children! Fairmont Gold (Floors 8 and 9), has incomparable service, and rooms with stunning views! It's a little pricy, but you definitely get what you pay for, and this would definitely be my first choice when staying in Vancouver! Friendly,...

This is really escapism from the hum drum every day activities of city life. This is an elegant hotel set in a wonderful area of the city. Yes it is busy with the cruise traffic, but it is still a beautiful area. Living in the city and spending an overnight here is a true escape. The pool is outdoors and...

The accommodations were excellent and only a short walk to the cruise ship pier. The bed was probably the most comfortable we've experienced. Hotel staff were always ready to assist and well informed.

Staying in Downtown

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.
