Wethave been to vancouver a few times but this was the first time we had stayed at the Fairmont on Georgia. Beautiful hotel in an ideal spot for the city centre and everything else. Big room with well appointed en suite. We requested a fridge which was promptly delivered, lovely, quality toiletries and fluffy towels. High standard of housekeeping, pleasant, smart friendly staff all round. Decent swimming pool, good restaurant etc. Really enjoyed our stay here.
The staff truly go above and beyond and the hotel is luxurious.
My husband and I stayed in one of the hotel's junior suites on New Years Eve and the entire experience was just amazing. We worked with Elliot Baker from the Fairmont to plan our stay and he truly went above and beyond to make everything perfect for us. The suite was gorgeous, the in-room dining we ordered was delicious, all of the staff were very gracious and the New Years Day Brunch Buffet was unbelievable. Excellent staff and beautiful hotel. We really can't say enough positive things.
You get what you pay for - not.
The Fairmont is one of several hotels in Vancouver's downtown core I stayed at during the same week; it was by far the most expensive, but sadly not the best experience out of the bunch. Objectively, it wasn't a bad stay - the room came with all the usual fixings and amenities, all staff are very professional, the building is located very centrally and is very luxuriously designed on the inside. I'm not holding against the hotel that the water pressure on the higher-up floors is not the best; however it also didn't get hot. My sister described the temperature as the "uncanny valley of showering - too cold to be comfortable, not cold enough for a two-minute shower. The paint was peeling off the bathroom ceiling as well - not that it impacted my comfort level (unlike the lukewarm shower), but when a room is $300+ a night, the hotel lobby houses Luis Vuitton and Gucci boutiques, and the the hotel displays large sculptures made out of fresh flowers in the lobby, this is just the sort of thing that gets noticed. You can repaint a lot of ceilings for the money it must cost to replace a giant live flower arrangement every few days. I was left with the feeling that the hotel was more dedicated to make a expensive impression than to provide the most comfort to guests. I'd rather stay at a place that skips the gold plating and fixes their hot water instead.
Excellent Location and Staff
Excellent Location and Staff - Compliimentary upgrade to Fairmont Gold never hurts either! Staff were friendly upon check in and very pleasant while checking out. The Gold lounge was very busy that morning and we did not have a seat for breakfast so left and brought the breakfast back to the room. Overall a great stay!
This charming hotel.....
…. in a recently renovated historic and very beautiful building, is ideally located for the centre of Vancouver, has excellent valet-parking and well-appointed, comfortable rooms, often with great views over the city. However, it is a very nasty place to stay. A vile, catty little termagant of a female receptionist was so mean and downright rude to me that I would never stay here again and recommend to others to avoid. The manager should send his reception staff to take the Common Courtesy Test, which is available at all good hotels, though clearly not at the Fairmont.
