Bottom Line

This elegant 557-room hotel is housed in a historic building across from the Vancouver Art Gallery, in the heart of Downtown. The gorgeous indoor pool, the excellent Griffins Restaurant, and the big, modern fitness center make this property a reliable upscale pick. But some rooms are dated, bathrooms are nothing special, and guests might feel nickel-and-dimed due to the number of extra charges, including the fees for water bottles in the rooms, parking, and Wi-Fi.

In the heart of Downtown Vancouver, close to some of the top tourist attractions in town

Map of The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

The Fairmont is located across from the Vancouver Art Gallery, and two blocks from Robson Square, the heart of Downtown Vancouver. There are three train lines within two blocks of 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 most parts empty out at night and in the weekends. However, Robson Square, located two blocks from the property, is always alive, with restaurants, shops, and bars.

  • 27-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • 4-minute walk to Robson Square, a nightlife and shopping hub
  • 10-minute walk to the Vancouver Convention Center
  • 14-minute walk to the BC Place Stadium, where the Vancouver Whitecaps FC play
  • 4-minute drive to Stanley Park
  • 7-minute drive to Science World
  • 8-minute drive to Kitsilano beach community
