Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Across the street from the Convention Center, and within walking distance to attractions and public transport

The Fairmont has a very convenient location for business travelers, as it is located across the street from the convention center and blocks to the heart of the financial district. However, those in town for leisure will probably find the downtown setting, blocks from public transport and within walking distance to major attractions, central and easily accessible. There’s a wide array of restaurants and bars in the immediate area, and the Bentall Centre Mall is just three blocks from the hotel.

Downtown Vancouver is the financial and commercial hub of the city. It's bustling during the weekdays, when tourists and locals fill the streets -- but empties out at night and on the weekends. However, Robson Square is always alive, featuring restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

  • 27-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • Across from the Vancouver Convention Center
  • 4-minute walk to Harbor Green Park
  • 4-minute walk to Burrard SkyRail stop
  • 5-minute walk to the Bentall Centre Mall
  • 11-minute walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • 12-minute walk to Robson Square
  • 7-minute drive to Stanley Park, where the seawall is located and numerous paths
  • 7-minute drive to Science World
  • 7-minute drive to the BC Place Stadium, home to numerous Canadian teams
  • 12-minute drive to the Museum of Vancouver
  • 12-minute drive to the Kitsilano beach community
