Travel Blogs from Vancouver
Hi to All, thanks for the messages you have sent.
We are well and have officially started our Scenic Tour. Last night we had a welcome dinner and got to meet some of our fellow travellers. Today (Monday) we had a bus ride through the sights of Vancouver, the normal stuff buildings, history and places of interest. We then had 2 hours free time …
After 14 or so hours we got into LAX we were told to take our bags to the transfer area and put them on the conveyor which we did, we then had the thought that the bags were not labeled so told the attendant who told us that if that was the case! the bags would be returned to the carousel where we would have to collect them.after a bit of …
We arrived in Canada yesterday afternoon after another 10 hour flight, we were all tired and hungry, so after a catch up with Debbie and an early dinner we all decided to hit the hay and recharge for the next day. The Fairmont Hotel is absolutely amazing, very flash, the breakfast is sensational eating it up on the 15th floor, they even have two …
Today we started the day with a coach ride through Vancouver. This is Heather's home city so she really loves it. It was a beautiful (yet again) so being a Saturday there were people everywhere, walking, cycling boats going out for a day in the harbour. There was also 2 cruise ships in the harbour offloading passengers and gaining new ones.
Plan of attack was I run to the American Airlines Departure Desk while Richard goes to Baggage Claim and to meet at the lift. More confusion I just went to the Business Class Check-in (on one checking in) the lady there was very helpfully knowing we were in a frantic hurry to sort the double booking out and get booked in, which she did in the very …

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
The first impression of our room was "it's dark & dreary". The TV was tiny, and the king sized bed was big for the small room. But the worst part was the heat. I turned the temp down to 65F (the lowest setting) but when we came back it was still warm. We turned it off, went to dinner, but 3 hours later the room was still 75F, in mid-February. The window opened a few inches, but that was no help. The front desk said they'd send someone, but my spouse had hung the "do not disturb" tag unbeknownst to me, so I can't blame the staff for not knocking on our door. Also, our mattress was unexpectedly saggy. The final annoyance was the funny plumbing noises. We couldn't tell if it was our toilet or someone else's. But the great things were Mavis the Yellow Lab, and Griffin's Restaurant. The lobby was beautiful and the front desk staff were quite nice. I just won't stay there again unless I hear they've remodeled & updated all the guest rooms.
What a GREAT experience!
What a fabulous hotel. I can't say enough about the friendly staff, great rooms and close to all the downtown shops/ammenities. The "900 West Sea and Steakfood House" within the Hotel was superb!! 18oz Prime Rib carved tableside was the best I have ever had. They even had a 24oz Porterhouse! Not for the faint at heart but looked good nonetheless. A great stay for a great price and a great location. A big thank you to Tara and Wayne for taking such good care of us in the restaurant. We will be back next year and asking for your section!!
The best thing about this hotel is the staff - above average service is the only thing keeping me from giving it one star. We spent two nights and paid an exhorbitant amount of money for a Deluxe room, supposedly the "best rooms in the hotel." What that got us was a cavernous space furnished with mostly decades-old, saggy furniture and a 17" TV lost in an enormous armoire all the way across the room. In a city littered with hotels, the cost benefit ratio at the Hotel Vancouver was not what it needed to be.
Epic Stay in BC
This place is superb. Arived after a longish flight from the UK, and obtained an upgrade to a corner room on the 12th floor (if i remember right) Room was outstanding, with digital air con and maid call service. We had our own entrance area off the main hallway. Staff we friendly and polite, when we had cause to use them. Service was good. The building is exceptional, if only all hotels looked this good.
Wonderful full-service hotel with a rich history and lovely decor. Prime location close to fabolous shopping and dining. Rooms were plush and showed no sign of wear or tear. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. Excellent boutique shopping in the hotel including Louis Vitton. I highly recommend!
We stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel on Sep. 20, 2003 for 3 nights. It was a beautiful hotel with great service. Our room is #223, a Fairmont room with 2 full size beds in a big room with high ceiling.
We recently stayed at the hotel and booked a Family Package in a Courtyard suite. The package included overnight parking, a movie or video games for 1 hr/day, a bowl of Smarties or M&M's/day and Vancouver aquarium passes. We arrived late and were upgraded to a very large and wonderfully appointed gallery suite. The extra space is very important with two young boys. Complimentary milk and cookies, upon request, were a nice touch. My knocks: the TV's need to be upgraded from 20" to 27-35" screens, the mini-refrigerator in our bedroom was missing one leg so it wobbled whenever we accessed it, we only received Smarties one time.
Really beautiful hotel, great service, room eservice is quick and very nicely presented. Would stay again and again...
This was such an incredible hotel I just had to write a few lines describing it. I stayed there in Nov. 2001 for 3 nights, following a trip across Canada in rather less classy places. We had been looking forward to our stay in hotel vancouver the whole trip, and it was worth the wait. We were given a free room upgrade by the exceptionally friendly reception staff. Our room was large, with a stunning view (from the 6th floor?) from the enormous full-length windows. Beautiful building, exterior and interior. Our room had 2 kingsize beds, was spotlessly clean, the bathroom was beautiful marble with stacks of toiletries. Large TV, playstation, bathrobes, plenty of refreshments, turn-down service, health club and pool very good. Excellent concierge, and very pleasant bar. Perfect location with many shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Shuttle bus to airport. We got a very good rate through our travel agent. I will, undoubtedly, stay there each time I visit Vancouver.
Lovely Hotel, Great Rooms, Friendly Staff, Close to all the Shops and Restaurants,
