Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
- What's Included
This is my second time to stay at Fairmont Vancouver. I just like the hotel and I’ve decided to make it my hotel any time I visit Vancouver. Very clean and the people are helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious.
Stayed 5 nights for a conference, nothing special. Expected more from Fairmont. Restaurant was below average - wife did not want to go back. Plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance. Foyer size shower in bathroom but no tub. Staff were pleasant and professional.
At first, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room on the 2nd floor.With hindsight, I would recommend that refurbishment be done as soon as possible. Our reasons for this advice : 1) Disappointment at the size of the bathroom - it was VERY small, with little space for toiletries, etc. We had to use the top of the toilet at times as this was the only extra space - not desirable.2a) NOISY!!! The room faced on to the main road, so we got traffic noise all through the night due to motorbike and car noise levels (that could perforate eardrums), as well as sirens due to the nearest hospital being close to the hotel, and also fire engines and police vehicles. While the windows were double-glazed and looked shut, it turned out that they were in fact not properly shut, thus allowing lots of street noise into the room. After complaining about the noise to the hotel, a hotel engineer had to forcibly slam the windows down to get them to properly shut and seal. Why weren’t the windows checked as part of room maintenance prior to guest check-in? The hotel manager contacted us about this and some of the other problems experienced which are listed below, and commendably, he waived the cost of the dinner we had in Notch 8 Restaurant.2b) As well as the above, the air conditioning unit was horrendously loud - this was explained by the hotel engineer that the noise was due to the unit being so close to the bed (!?) - rubbish. We have stayed at many other hotels with ceiling air conditioning units located at the same distance from the bed. We tried to limit the noise by turning the level up to a warmer temperature, which made the room very hot, and did not help much at all.3) The coffee machine was awful - apart from being VERY user-unfriendly, difficult and temperamental, the coffee was not that good. Attention Fairmont, please consider getting Nespresso machines or similar - easy to use and good tasting coffee.4) The television registered “no signal” for frequent lengthy periods. The engineer was able to fix the problem - it was a loose cable.There were also some positives about the hotel, but not enough to outweigh the negatives : 1) The pillow selection was excellent - when a firmer pillow was requested, the one provided was very good.2) The extra fridge provided (due to the room fridge having an electronic mini-bar) was very good at chilling water and the fresh milk that I requested.3) The Fairmont toiletries were lovely - some of the nicest that we have used on our travels. 4) The breakfast buffet was really good - see review for Notch 8 Restaurant.While I think that the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is part of a good brand, this disappointing experience means that my husband and I will be more assertive if we stay at any Fairmont properties as part of future tours.
We definitely loved the stay in this hotel! Everything was professionally done, clean,romantic,...Super service, beautiful view to the water and the city. Just I would definitely recommend this hotel.
We had one night here and decided to splurg & stay at the Fairmont. The rooms are beautifully decorated & very inviting. We usually book a junior suite at other hotels but for one night just went with a standard room. It did feel small but it might be because we are use to bigger junior suite. I will book a junior suite next time.Its in a great location & the staff are very friendly.Notch8 restaurant downstairs was fabulous, the food was great & the presentation awesome we had dinner & breakfast. Breakfast the next morning I had the best pancakes.The staff were very accommodating & gave us a generous late checkout which was greatly appreciated.
