Convenient Business Hotel
I was here for a week. The location is so convenient to my meetings. Nice clean hotel at a good price. The service was good as well. I used the lounge bar everyday after work. The rooms are traditional and very clean. There could have been more power outlets for one's phone, laptop and others. Or even USB ports. Not a complaint. The views are great as well. It is walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping areas. I walked to Gas Town in about 15 mins. If you are adventurous, the airport train is across the street but taxis are so cheap.
A very average stay in an average room but in a good location
We checked in very late, many floors of the hotel are closed. Despite our gold status we did not get any kind of the upgrade and the room we got pretty average with no view, lower floor. We were told that many of the floors are closed and that is why availability of good rooms is pretty limited. This is definitely not one of Fairmont premium hotels ie Lake Louise, Empress Victoria or Mission Sonoma, think an average business hotel with very average service. I would not recommend.
Beautiful Hotel. Making best out of Covid situation!
Stayed for final 2 nights in BC. Stayed at Pacific Rim first 2 nights and enjoyed this hotel more. Classic old Fairmont style a la Banff Springs and Queen Elizabeth. We couldn't figure out how to enter hotel with our car, so parked in a lot down the street. It was very convenient and a lot cheaper. Had a large one bedroom suite booked but when went to second floor it was very dated and not renovated. Also the floor smelled like the Pool! Unless you are a committed swimmer, suggest staying away from second floor rooms! We called the front desk to ask about moving and Darren was so nice; he offered to move us to 2 separate rooms as there wasn't a renovated 2 bedded suite available. Girls were happy as were we so win win. Nicely renovated rooms. Small bathrooms but old hotel so can't be helped! Hotel was less than 15% occupied which was very sad. Bar was open which was great. perfect location for walking to Yale town, Gas town etc. Lots of shopping. Will return after Covid clears to enjoy all of the services and facilities. Staff were great, especially Darren.
Great staff, room okay
The staff at this hotel were very helpful and professional. They were meticulous with details. The room itself was so-so....the bathroom was so small you tripped over the bathmat going in and the air conditioning was noisy. There was an odd smell in the room. I know that this hotel is a heritage building and that limits its ability to renovate certain things. It is what it is. That being said, there are certain areas that clearly need a refresh. Great location, great staff, but not a luxury experience in my opinion.
Great stay, great COVID 19 care
Fairmont Vancouver did not disappoint and great practices for COVID 19 care. Your room is left empty for 48 hours before you check in. Hand sanitizer on all floors. Great access to waterfront by Canada Place and public transportation. Easy walk from airport shuttle. Friendly staff. Was very accommodating for a late check out at this time. Room very clean . (However if you like rooms with lots of window light may have to upgrade from a standard room)
