This is a gleaming hotel, and a marvelous place for a stay during the Christmas season. As far as as the smell of weed outside the hotel is concerned , I don’t think the hotel can play any role. The city has to take it up. The proximity to the local attractions is an added bonus. There was a minor issue with the heating in our room, within a couple of minutes we were given a portable room heater. The service was so good! The rooms are spacious, and comfortable, and ours had a great view of the city. The differently-themed holiday trees were such a visual treat! The housekeeping staff made sure that our room was neat, and everything was well-arranged. They gave me a big container of moisturizer for use during my stay, and suggested that I could buy one if I had taken a liking to it. The uniformed service attendants were very helpful with our luggage. I will definitely be going back!

Our family had an incredible stay at Hotel Vancouver Fairmont. The property's elegance, proximity to luxury shopping and dining, and outstanding customer service left us thoroughly impressed. Krystina, from the gold floor, went above and beyond, making our daughter's birthday unforgettable with thoughtful room decorations and a delightful array of goodies. Her warm hospitality made us feel truly welcomed. Opting for the gold floor was a fantastic choice, offering a superb breakfast and appetizers throughout the day. The Fairmont team's efforts made our weekend, especially our birthday celebration, truly special. Despite usually staying at the Pacific Rim property, I'm looking forward to returning in March for a conference at Hotel Vancouver Fairmont.
