Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
- What's Included
This hotel is usually the better priced our of all three Vancouver Fairmont properties. Since their renovation it has become a much better hotel. The restaurant/bar on the main floor is great. The hotel is steps from some of Vancouver's best restaurants and retail shopping.
We like Vancouver, and travel there a few times a year. When we do so we like to stay at the more upscale hotels.This Christmas - New Years break we were in Vancouver again, and after four days at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, we then spent the remaining three days of our trip at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, as the rate was good and we had never stayed there before.We have stayed at the Fairmont Pacific Rim before, and accordingly have come to know the amazing service provided by Fairmont hotel staff. This property is considered 4 star versus 5 star, so I was expecting a bit of a drop off in the level of service. I was wrong.We experienced some problems with our renovated room (odd smell...we ended up in two different rooms during our stay and had the problem in both, so if you are going to stay in a renovated room on a renovated floor, ask if the issues with odd smells and plumbing have been corrected), but Mr. Boutly of the Front Desk apologized profusely for the issue and offered us two complimentary rounds of drinks at the bar. The bar staff were both friendly and professional as well.This type of exceed expectations service was experienced throughout our stay; “Devon” at the front desk was most personable, pleasant and professional during our check in, and recognized and greeted me by name on a couple of occasions.later. “Neil” at the concierge desk was most helpful with directions to a local barber shop for myself, and with research performed for my wife regarding a local bakery (he even brought a map with directions up to our room and slipped it under the door).Most notable however was “Debbie” of the concierge staff. She was, in a word, amazing. The absolute personification of “Concierge at a Luxury Hotel”. She could not have been more helpful or pleasant during our stay, taking time to provide me with assistance on multiple occasions, always with the brightest of smiles. I was tempted to make up problems for her to solve simply so I could have more opportunities to speak with her (lol).My wife and I agreed that we would want to return to this property; the location is fantastic, and the staff excellent. We loved the renovations to the hallways and rooms. We can only hope they will solve the problems associated with the installation of the toilets so that we truly enjoy our next visit.
The grand size of the rooms and the beautiful decor were real luxury. The staff were all very friendly, especially the concierge who helped us with tickets and information. The food at the buffet breakfast was excellent. The only downside was that there is no free wifi - $14.99 per day was too ridiculous. All up, a very nice place to stay.
Newly renovated suite...absolutely spectacular...fireplace and built in lighted bookcases from the past with a totally new bathroom with spacious shower. Called the concierge ahead and they secured a Globe and Mail paper the next day when we arrived on Sunday. Great location for shopping and restaurants. Always impeccable service and heritage hotel environment!
We received the same stellar service that you'd expect from Fairmont. It's this great service that makes me loyal to the Fairmont brand. We didn't explore all the amenities, but our room was disappointing. The heat did not work, so a space heater was brought it. The space heater isn't self regulated so it got too hot part way through the night so my sleep was interupted. Our hot water didn't work. It was lukewarm at best. The breaakfast buffet from the restaurant (notch 8) was the biggest disappointment. For $32 dollars you can have yourself an overproce mediocre meal. We went to the buffet early at 730 am. The deli cheese was dried and looked as though it was sitting out for at least 2 hours, and had some flies hovering around it. Same could be said for the rest of the hot food items except it was covered up. I was so disgusted that I only ate some yogurt and fruit. The buffet was comparable to the free continental breakfast you would get at a best western...I can't speak to the items on the menu, I've heard good things, but if the buffet is any idication of the quality and effort Notch 8, and Fairmont vancouver is willing to serve to guests...I wouldn't suggest wasting your money.
