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.
The 377-room Fairmont is an upscale property on the northern edge of Downtown Vancouver, across the street from the Convention Center, and blocks to the harbor and public transport. The hotel has a modern, business-y vibe throughout, with clean lines and contemporary decor. Up-to-date amenities include an outstanding fitness center with a yoga studio, a rooftop heated pool open year-round, and a high-end spa. Spacious rooms feature Nespresso coffeemakers, plush name-brand beds, floor-to-ceiling windows (most boasting great views of the port and the mountains), flat-screen TVs and iPod docks.
