We arrived on time for check in (3pm) but our room was not ready. Vijay bent over backwards with alternate room options but we decided to wait since we were not in a hurry. To help with the wait Vijay gave us a couple of drink vouchers for the restaurant/bar. James served us and he too was exceptionally friendly. Amen at the bell desk was super helpful and was happy to store our bags while we waited. Steve at the front door got me a bike to ride and again, he was super helpful and friendly. We only stayed one night but the service was so exceptional we will return and most likely stay longer.

Hotel's Favourite
Canada has always been on our bucket list of places to visit. We relied on our AAA travel agent and wow, she picked an excellent place. The room was nice and spacious and we had a great Harbor view. The bed was amazing . The bathroom was nice and had a television, built into the mirror!! As far as amenities, this is everything it had to.offer……they call it Fairmont Gold Amenities: Private check in and check out Exclusive use of the Fairmont Gold Lounge and gardened terrace, overlooking Vancouver’s harbor. Complimentary deluxe European buffet breakfast served between 6:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. weekdays and 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. weekends. Complimentary selection of house-made pastries and savory snacks served between 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. daily. Complimentary selection of hot and cold canapés served between 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. daily. Complimentary mineral water, soft drinks, coffee, espresso drinks and selection of teas. An honor bar is available to enjoy daily from 12:00pm - 9:30pm where charges will apply for alcoholic beverages. They even had gluten free items. In addition to all that, the service was excellent. The staff was so professional, so courteous and so very sweet. Two of the employees, Duygu and Katiuska, gave exceptional service. Definitely coming back.

We bought a bed and breakfast rate, and we were surprised. The room was spacious in a quiet spot. Everything that we needed for a weekend in Vancouver. The location is super close to downtown! Jeff (Front Desk) was fantastic and gave us a room ready before the check-in time. The only "problem" was that we did not know that making a reservation for breakfast would be necessary, so we waited a little bit. But it was nothing! We recommend it, and we would love to stay with you again! Thanks for the excellent service!

I am a regular at many Fairmont properties, but this would be my first time at the Fairmont Waterfront. Unfortunately, this would be my least favorite Fairmont property, and I will likely not return. The experience first starts with the parking. I recieve self-parking as part of my reservation package. As I entered the garage, it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find an open parking spot. I could barely move as there were so many cars and congestion. I found out that this was because of a convention next door, but nevertheless, this was the most stressful parking experience ever that took almost 45 minutes. After finally parking, I took the elevator to the hotel lobby....and there was a long line to check-in, about 20 people ahead of me. After checking-in at the desk...there was ANOTHER long line to get on the elevator. Not quite the "welcoming" experience. The next day, I went downstairs to the ARC resturant for breakfast since I had it as part of my reservation package. Not suprised...but there was ANOTHER long line to see the Maître d desk, and sure enough, the wait was about 1 hour to get seated. Because we waited for 1 hr....breakfast was already over by the time we got seated and was no longer being served, so we were unable to take full advantage of our breakfast package as part of our room reseravtion. Lessons learned, we went to the resturant around 8am the next day - extra early, so we would not wait long. The food was overpriced, and not very good, the breakfast buffet was not being replenished enough so most of the food trays were empty. Very disappointing experience, and if it wasn't for breakfast being included in our package, we would not go here. Lastly....upon check-out (of course there was a long line for the front desk), just when we were leaving we noticed that our bill included an extra few hundred dollars. Turns out...they accidentally charged us for breakfast and self-parking even though it was already included in our reservation package. For a hotel like this, I should not need to keep an eye of my own bill and having to check the work of the hotel staff. Our stay was already stressful enough with the long lines everywhere and the F&B experience. On the bright side, the room itself was nice, with a good view. We even recieved a free room upgrade due to our ALL Accor status. No concerns or complains on the room. But despite the room being nice and comfortable, unfortunately, with everything else that occured during our stay, it has ruined our experience enough that we may not return and will prefer to stay at the other Fairmont properties in Vancouver instead.

From the moment we arrive, the front reception staff are friendly, professional and welcoming. The room, the cleanliness and the water views are spectacular. The location, the pool, hot tub and hotel restaurant are perfect for relaxing and unwinding. Thank you Fairmont Waterfront for another fabulous stay!

Great customer service, and a great location and physical attributes! I enjoyed the hospitality in the bar restaurant area. Breakfast was delicious with a Sunday morning live guitarist. The ventilation system could use some cleaning out. When the heat was turned up it was a little difficult to breathe at night. Overall it was a pleasant stay!

WOW! I was just so impressed with the my experience here. I arrive and was warmly greeted. The front desk person treated me so professionally and gave me an amazing room. He even provided me with 1 hour early check in. This room had so much daylight and a nice view. I was here for business and had to work most of the day from the room. The following day, they stored my luggage, provided me with extended access to the gym. The pool is to die for - heated and lovely. 5 out of 5 experience.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel for the annual Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. Fantastic location for both east and west conference centers. The hotel was great and the conference booking procedure was easy with a reasonable 3 day cancel policy. Hotel staff and service were excellent. The only negative experience we had was our room (426) was above the fitness room, and around 5am we would hear loud noises from weights beneath us. I walked out to the hallway and could hear it there also. I don't know how anyone could sleep through that noise level, so if you stay here I would avoid 4th floor above the weight room - there are several rooms in this area. If not for that, it'd be 5 stars.
