With all of its rooms and suites recently refurbished, the Fairmont Waterfront is definitely back on the map. Just across the road from the contemporary Fairmont Pacific Rim, the Waterfront offers the same superb location yet with a slightly more relaxed and family friendly feel.

Step into the grand lobby and experience Fairmont hospitality from the start. The ARC restaurant and bar are just off to your right and offer a welcoming spot for anything from a morning coffee to an early evening cocktail. With comfy seating and relaxed atmosphere it's a great gathering place for families and friends.

The hotel has a superb location for exploring the city with everything you need on your doorstep. After a busy day, retreat to the outdoor roof top pool, complete with fantastic harbor and mountain views and terraces to relax on.

In the evening, venture back to ARC Bar where live music is played from Thursday to Sunday. Dine together at ARC restaurant or head into the city for the evening. Retreat back to your room to take advantage or the soft woody tones and sweeping views from your panoramic windows. Wake to snow capped mountains and sea planes taking off and landing in the harbor, a truly Vancouver view!

A staple of the Vancouver waterfront, the Fairmont Vancouver makes for the ideal stop at the beginning of or end of your Canada adventure.


The hotel has recently completed a refurbishment of their 370 guest rooms and suites, giving them a relaxed hue of golden caramels, neutral creams and warm browns. Each of the rooms and suites offers floor to ceiling windows with sweeping views across to the harbor, glittering city skyline or snow capped mountains. The terrace rooms open out to the hotel's herb garden and have access on to the pool deck.

All rooms have 47” HD flat-screen televisions, wireless internet access, Sealy Posturepedic pillow-top beds, in-room safe, 24 hour In Room Dining, personal Keurig coffee system and tea, large working desk with chair, exclusive Le Labo bath amenities and floor to ceiling windows with openings to the exterior.

The Deluxe Partial Harbour View and Signature Harbour View rooms have the option to connect to one another, making them ideal for families traveling together. The Fairmont Waterfront also offers a selection of one and two bedroom suites for those who want a little more luxurious space. The Fairmont Gold Floor offers a hotel within a hotel feel on the 8th and 9th floor with private check in and check out, dedicated Concierge service as well as the Fairmont Gold Lounge with gardened terrace, complimentary soft drinks and snacks during the day and complimentary daily breakfast


Families are made very welcome at the Fairmont Waterfront and they offer specific rooms especially for them. From interconnecting options through to one and two bedroom family suites. Cots are available on request as well as baby amenities, children's bathrobes and highchairs. Babysitting can be arranged locally. At the hotel's restaurants, children under 5 years eat free from the children's menu and children 6-11 eat for half price from the main menu.


The hotel offers a fantastic location in the city, just steps from the harbor and ideal for exploring. Back in the hotel though, take time to sample the urban artisanal cuisine or ARC Restaurant, perfect for a casual breakfast or lunch or special dinner or sample a cocktail at the ARC bar where live music is played in the evenings from Thursday to Sunday. When the city becomes too much, head up to the outdoor pool to take a dip and refresh. It's a great spot for views of the harbor and to just relax. There is also a fully equipped fitness center.


The hotel offers complimentary bikes for guest use on a first come first serve basis from June to September and there are plenty of bike hire shops close by at other times. There are also guided morning runs twice a week departing from the hotel.

Location & Directions

Vancouver, British Columbia

Located right on the Vancouver's waterfront within an easy walk of the center of the city and seaplane terminal.

When to go

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. The average seasonal snowfall at 1600m (5000 feet) is a spectacular 25 meters (75 feet), four or five times the average in most areas of the Alps. July through September are the best bets for sunshine.
