Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver
- What's Included
The warm welcome of the reception made my trip with a good start The service and food are both perfect , however if there is more option for the dessert would be better in compare with the gold lounge in whistler The renovation of the hotel , the room and also the gold lounge really stunning , cozy and warmThe only little comment would be the bathroom , I wish it could be a little bit bigger and one of the kid do not have a bath robe which I requested When made the reservation, however this is very minor My kids really enjoy a lot with the kids pool and all the Christmas decor I will definitely go back again this April Looking forward for my next stay
As Fairmont properties go, this place should be ashamed of itself. On a cold and rainy January stay our windows would not shut all the way letting in write a draft. When maintenance came to fix it he said, "well the building is over 100 years old." The heat only goes up to 75 degrees in the whole hotel so no sense on changing rooms. The pool and spa were shut down for repair, so they offered another hotels facilities. We canceled our remaining nights and moved there. Much better in every regard. Don't be quick to book because it's a Fairmont and picturesque. This place is falling apart.
The Empress is the crown jewel of Victoria, BC. Beautiful view of harbour and Parliament building. Easy strolling down Government street to shops and restaurants. The Willowstream Spa is fantastic! The High Tea is a must !
As loyalty members the Fairmont went out of their way to care for us. Our room was better than expected and concierge/desk service exceptional. The only area that could use improvement would be the restaurant - there seemed to be enough staff but certainly were slow.
This was our first time staying at the Empress and we had a lovely time. We stayed for 2 nights at the Fairmont Gold experiencePart of the hotel have new modern redesigned but still retaining some of the features of the old classic Empress.The room was spacious, nicely furnished and the King size bed that was very comfortable, the bathroom was modern with a rain head shower. View of Victoria downtown port was breath taking!The food in the Q restaurant was delicious with very good friendly service and the Q Bar was a very cool place to spent time with friends and family.We spent a lovely afternoon at the tea lounge, meeting the hotel tea expert (sorry... I forgot his name) we have learn so much about tea culture and history, i'll never look at a tea bag the same again...:-), delicious sandwiches and desserts accompanied the tea.The Empress staff was very friendly, helpful and pleasant.The hotel is across the street from the BC Parliament and within walking distance to shopping and attractions.Highly recommended!
