When business brings me to Vancouver, this is my favourite place to stay. A stunning Fairmont property right on the waterfront. Fantastic accommodation and amazing staff. Located right across from the cruise ship terminal, it's always fun to check out who's in dock. Close to many great restaurants and shopping. The world renowned sea wall begins right in front of...

We enjoyed our one-week stay at Fairmont Waterfront. There was a nice panoramic view of Vancouver from our room. The World's Best Gelato for consecutive years running is located at the Fairmont Pacific Rim right beside it. We queued up for it almost daily. Conference centre is located right across the road from the hotel if any travellers are there...

We spent our Christmas this year at The Fairmont Waterfront and loved every minute of it. Our corner room showed beautiful views of the harbour, mountains and stanley park framed in the floor to ceiling windows. The King Size bed was very comfortable and the room service each morning was top shelf along with the gourmet breakfast. Every person working...

I Had the unpleasant experience of being treated super poorly at the Fairmont Hotel Water Front in Vancouver. It was a cold evening-after the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. I cam to my hotel and asked the only front desk attend to call me a cab. His answer was its faster if you walk to Gastown and try there. I...

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.
