Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Timeless style at 'The Castle in the Sky'

The Fairmont Vancouver hotel is an iconic part of the Vancouver skyline with its castle-like facade and luxurious fittings. It was opened in May of 1939, in time for the royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and is located near Robson Street - perfect for shoppers! Within its walls you will find the luxurious Absolute Spa, an exclusive Fairmont Gold floor, a state of the art health club and award winning restaurants. A superior hotel in all respects.

Love the Fairmont

Denver, Colorado

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Hotel, in particular I loved the location on Georgia Street. Previously in Vancouver we'd stayed at an AirBNB near Commercial Drive, Vancouver, quite a distance from the city but being right in the city was so much better. We were close to great restaurants, easy walking distance to the Harbour and Canada Place, the ferry terminal to North Vancouver, Gastown, shopping at Robson Street and the business district where my husband needed be, just awesome. All the staff we dealt with during our stay were lovely and very helpful. In particular the lady who did our housekeeping "Marina" was polite, efficient and just so nice (I saw her daily as I worked from our hotel room in the mornings before being out and about in the afternoons). Our room was extremely pleasant and well equipped with its own safe for our passports, iron and ironing board, robes, TV, desk and chair, armchair and ottoman, coffee and tea making facilities and great water pressure in the shower. We ate our breakfast in the hotel restaurant each morning and the bircher muesli I ate, each day, was beautifully presented and delicious. If you want particularly good coffee and cakes, right around the corner from the hotel opposite Vancouver Art Gallery is a lovely French cafe called "Faubourg". Probably my most favorite part of the Fairmont Hotel, were the two hotel dogs that are in the reception each day, lovely when you are away from your own dogs. And finally, I really appreciated the thoughtful little touches in our room such as the umbrella in the closet and that the complimentary toiletries were good quality, cruelty free and Canadian made. Excellent hotel!!

Almost very good


A grand old lady in an excellwnt location, that was not served well by the size of the room (as in super small) - we expected more at the rate we paid. Also, found valet parking to be beyond exorbitant. At least you could walk everywhere.
