    Cruising from Vancouver? Stay here!

    We had heard before we arrived that the Fairmont Waterfront had a reputation as "The Friendly Hotel" and it certainly lived up to it's name! The staff here are really lovely and welcoming. The room was large, the bathroom very clean and a good size, the bed supremely comfortable, and the restaurant service and food was excellent (we had both dinner and breakfast). Special mention of Austin on the front desk who was fantastic. Every staff member calls you by name when they see you - it's a really personal and appreciated touch! But the crowning glory of staying here was that they will take your luggage straight to the cruise ship for you. No handling of baggage and your luggage will go straight from the hotel to your suite on the ship. This is such a bonus! If you're cruising out of Vancouver, definitely consider staying at this lovely hotel. And if you're not cruising, the location is still great, close to a railway station and this hotel is definitely recommended by us. .

    Spent one night here in October for a business meeting Hotel location is great, rooms and meeting spaces are very nice If you park a car in the underground parking garage beware- my car was broken into in the middle of the night. Security was great to help clean up, but what a pain! One of the employees shared that this happens once or twice a month!

    Great spot

    Service excellent, location excellent, ambience excellent a perfect 24 hours, will stay there again when I visit Vancouver. Although a large hotel, it has a feeling of comfort, with its outdoor views. Then it has formal dining rooms and less formal dining areasn - result the traveller in a hurry can be serviced as can a visitor that just wants to enjoy a friendly meal with companies.

    Amazing upgrade, fantastic location

    We stayed here at the end of our 3 week tour of Western Canada. We had a deal that guaranteed us a room upgrade at the Fairmont hotels we stayed in. On checking in there appeared to be an issue with this upgrade , possibly due to there being a large number of guests staying due to several conferences at the nearby Conference centre. We were offered a larger room with the added bonus of being on the Fairmont Gold level but only with a "Murphy" pull down bed . Nothing more was mentioned about the room, but because of the added extras of Fairmont Gold we accepted the upgrade. The upgrade was unbelievable! Not a room but a huge suite with views over the city and harbour. It turned out to be the largest suite in the hotel! We kept waiting for a knock on the door to tell us there had been a mistake and we needed to move, but no knock came. The staff and facilities here are first rate and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The hotel has a very good restaurant/bar on the lobby level which serves excellent food and wines. It was a little noisy on the night we ate there (again due to the conferences) but had quietened down considerably by the time we had finished our meal
