The Fairmont Waterfront hotel is a perfect getaway location with breathtaking views of the Vancouver harbor, mountains, city skyline and Stanley Park.
The 489-room hotel is close to many Vancouver attractions including Gastown, Stanley Park, the Vancouver Convention Center, Seawall walking paths and the Waterfront Sky train station.
Rooms are contemporary with warm cream and caramel brown color schemes, blue accents and blond wood furniture. Remodeled bathrooms include luxurious rain spa showers and some rooms include private terraces leading to the resort’s huge outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and 2,100 square foot rooftop herb garden housing on-site beehives.
There is also a 24-hour fitness center and an exclusive concierge level.
The hotel’s signature ARC restaurant is sleek airy and modern. The eatery is curved like it’s name and offers beautiful views of the outside hustle and bustle near Canada Place through floor to ceiling windows. Dark wood floors and a grey color scheme contrast the brightness of the space. The long narrow restaurant houses booths, a bar, dining tables and patio seating.
Breakfast choices include smoothies, benedicts, omelets, pancakes and waffles. ARC’s baristas also make a mean London Fog. Dinner dishes include a huge seafood platter, wild salmon, halibut, beef tenderloin and squash and lemon risotto. There is also a nice seasonal tasting board featuring local meats, seafood and sauces. Desserts include an apple galette, chocolate hazelnut tart and a Nutella s’mores cookie skillet.
The Fairmont Waterfront’s central location and outstanding service make it a great destination for business travelers as well as guests who want to relax at a luxurious hotel and enjoy the amazing Vancouver views.
