A newcomer to downtown and joining the already well established Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Fairmont Waterfront, the Fairmont Pacific Rim brings a modern contemporary edge to this usually very traditional brand. With casual sophistication, the hotel blends Asian and west coast influences to it's interior and style, bringing a bright and light atmosphere to the whole property.
With an abundance of extraordinary dining options close by guests would be forgiven for overlooking the hotel's offerings. However, you would be missing a treat with the superb Pan Asian ORU for fine evening dining through to the newest addition, Giovane Wine Bar and cafe for lively and eclectic daytime and early evening fare. Or perhaps enjoy a relaxed drink in the lobby lounge where you will find the hotel's impressive Fazioli piano is often played for guests enjoyment.
Rooms at the Fairmont Pacific Rim offer all the latest in comfort and technology at your fingertips. The exceptionally comfortable Stearns and Foster beds ensure a luxurious nights sleep, the fine marble bathrooms offer indulgent amenities and the latest in extras including an in mirror TV! We highly recommend upgrading to a harbour view room for these are rare within the city and there are few cities you can wake up to watch seaplanes landing on the harbour or snow capped mountains in the distance.
Although you may wish to spend all your time in the city, spare at least a little time to take advantage of the Willow Stream Spa. With a wonderful menu of indulgent treatments, three lounges (two with fireplaces) and surrounded with lovely water views, this is the place to lose a few hours before returning to city life, relaxed and revived.
The hotel offers 377 guest rooms, suites and speciality rooms.
The Fairmont Gold Club on 20th and 21st floors offers additional benefits of a private lounge with complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails as well as panoramic harbour views from the balcony.

When to travel
Vancouver's climate is the mildest in Canada, averaging 20°C in summer and 2°C in winter. But you don't hear much about that accolade. Instead you hear about the rain. Bucket loads of it fall, especially in winter (January, February and March). In the mountains, a mere 20 minutes away, this translates into snow for excellent skiing. TThe average seasonal snowfall at 1600m (5000 feet) is a spectacular 25 metres (75 feet), four or five times the average in most areas of the Alps. July through September are the best bets for sunshine
