    My first impression of this hotel was that it was too luxurious. The lobby is lofty (literally and figuratively) and made me feel a little small and detached from the surroundings.

    That all changed, however, upon entering one of the guestrooms. I was greeted by the calming sound of birds chirping (coming from the bedside radio of course) and a glowing panoramic photograph of a lush green forest. It was a little surreal looking out the windows onto the North Shore Mountains while feeling like somehow I was already there. Let’s just say that it was love at first sight.

    I’m sure that anyone could pick a random room here, stay the night and leave in the morning feeling satisfied. But to really make the most of it, I recommend at least the following:

    1) A room with a harbour mountain view — better yet, the Signature Ofuro Room that has a Japanese soaker tub from which you can enjoy the view

    2) Any spa treatment just to take advantage of Willow Stream’s facilities like the sauna, steam room and meditation pods

    3) A visit to Bella Gelateria for true artisan gelato that’s made onsite (Bombay Chai is my new favourite!)

    Did I say this place felt too luxurious? I take it back!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my night at the Fairmont. The view was most breathtaking. If you have extra $$ to spend a night in town I recommend to stay here. Their room service was friendly and attentive.

    Stepping into the Fairmont Pacific Rim, it is obvious that this hotel is one of the newest in Vancouver. The lobby is extremely white and as seems to be the trend with everything these days, extremely open. A trendy bar fills almost half of the cavernous lobby and is adjacent to check-in counters. There is live (and loud) music six evenings a week and seems to be a place to be seen. At the end the lobby is open to ORU bistro.

    The rooms are very fresh and new and with 40-different styles, there are little tweaks to make any stay just about right. One of my favourite features was a backlit forest scene above the bed which reminds you that you’re staying in a temperate rainforest zone. That point in driven home even further if you’re lucky enough to have a room looking across Burrard Inlet to the north shore mountains.
    The water/mountain view can also be had in a suite with its own fireplace that is situated just over the outdoor pool and deck.

    Overall, this is a beautiful hotel but it’s not cheap. With rooms starting at $309 and a top suite going for about $10k, it’s worth waiting for some nice weather to enjoy some sun with the mountains.

    Definitely a nice lodging option if you are in Vancouver. Centrally located, close to the ferry to North Van and Gastown.

    Hands down the nicest hotel in town. The curtains and lights are all controlled by panels all around the room. There are TVs in the mirrors that you can watch from the giant bath tubs. The suites are huge and beautiful. Very modern and luxurious with a great location, great views, and a top notch staff.
