The Fairmont Waterfront is an upscale option in downtown Vancouver. The highlight of this hotel may be its location, as the name suggests, overlooking the harbor -- the pool and over half of the rooms feature beautiful water views. Room decor is contemporary and sophisticated, if a bit generic for such a high-end brand. Hotel features are numerous, including a small fitness center, year-round outdoor pool, and even an herb garden -- but massages are the only spa services available. The Fairmont Waterfront attracts families with its free kids' welcome gifts and bicycle rentals, and business travelers with its 24-hour room service, 24-hour business center, and meeting rooms. However, visitors may want to compare prices with the nearby Loden Hotel before booking.
