Fairmont Pacific Rim


I mean this hotel is awesome. My mandatory and required complaints are very very limited.

Obviously I am no Vancouver expert, but the location of this hotel seems just oh so slightly out of the action. Like super slightly. Like you can still walk everywhere and you are right on the water and the Harbour views are money so I probably shouldn’t mention anything but it just seems oh so slightly farther from things than “perfect” should be.

The rooms are big, the bathrooms are huge and modern with giant tubs and glass walk in showers and great lighting plus TV’s in the mirrors. The AV system is money with surround sound everywhere. The bed is great. The rooms even have balconies if you order right. This room is super comfortable. Oh, and everything is controlled from an Ipad, or from numerous other touch panels placed around the room.

Mini bar is good. Room service menu is actually fantastic and is available 24 hours. Pay per view is perfect and has a knock your socks off 24 hour package.

The pool area is cool if the weather is good but I wasn’t able to observe any “scene” if there is one (they certainly have enough cabanas to indicate that there’s a scene). The downstairs bars are super popular and they do live music on the weekend.

This place ain’t cheap but it is sick.


-I got a discount but the rate was still $400 per night.
