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.
The Fairmont is in the eastern part of Downtown Vancouver, within walking distance of the Vancouver Convention Center and the Bentall Centre Mall. There is also a SkyRail line just over a block away.
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.
