great location for prior to a cruise! restaurant has excellent menu! delicious and healthyh!
the curteous staff, efficient, friendly, helpful and obliging we had bad weather
Staff we're very helpful and accommodating Room was super clean and surprisingly quiet considering how busy the hotel was Super convenient location Internet charge was a little outrageous
Beautiful location and elegant decor. Room and bedding very comfortable and spacious. All service was friendly and prompt. Bellman was especially helpful with information and very courteous. Very enjoyable.
Very comfortable bed and pillows - Everything I needed was in the room. Check in and out were very fast. It was an enjoyable stay and the location was perfect.
Lovely hotel in a beautiful location. Very comfortable, stunning views. Spending a lot of money on a 5 star hotel is OK but to be charged extra to use WIFI seems greedy. In 5 weeks in Canada this is the only hotel we stayed in which charged. It was also the most expensive.
This is the perfect hotel to be close to the cruise terminal as well as for sightseeing, right next to Gastown, Chinatown, and the Skytrain. Had my reservation for a king sized bed, and when I entered the room, it was 2 doubles. Went down to get it changed, and the staff member (Elena?) said the rooms were fully booked and said that "the king sized was just a request". I persisted that I reserved a king and paid the price for a king, which was clearly printed on my reservation confirmation. She went to the back room to check with her manager, and finally came back out to change my room to a king size bed. It was a little troubling to have to put up a fight to get what I had reserved.
Proximity to the cruise ship terminal. Easy to get anywhere in the city by walking, bus or subway (Sky Rail). Extremely courteous staff, very helpful. Will definitely stay there in the future. Nothing
Good location - upmarket service You have to go through the parking garage to get to the gym - and it was cold!
convenience location Extra charge for everything. food is very expensive
Location was most suitable to our needs Freindly staff
Beautiful place to stay for my first time in Vancouver. Close to everything downtown.
Great location, worth the extra money for the harbor view. Lots of great amenities, including use of the bikes because you are so close to the seawall and Stanley Park. Nice and friendly staff. TV often didn't work and had to restart it many times.
Proximity to harbor wall, Stanley Park, and Robson Street for all kinds of entertainment and diverse dining experiences. Rooms are spacious and parking is handy.
The view was great, location was great and these made our stay perfect. The room was clean and maintained during our stay, the staff was courteous. All in all happy at the end.
Pinnacle is clearly an older hotel that has had a high style interior makeover. The lobby, cafe/bar and the guest rooms are all very stylish. For quite reasonable rates our room had harbor and convention center views. The room and bath were nicely appointed. Quality coffe was offered for the morning The exterior is lack luster and the elevators have not been upgraded and feel a bit rickety. Our room was a hallway away from the core and we could hear them on and off all night. All in all it out performed expectations.
Requested to change room due to the noise, The stuff found us a different room at 2 in the morning. Stayed a night on the 17th floor, the elevator sound was very loud through out the day and night. I couldn't fall asleep at all.
1/ Location 2/ Friendly, helpful staff 3/ Great view from the breakfast room. 1/ Parking was a joke: expensive, very poorly laid out, difficult to find the way out and the way in. 2/ I found that $20 for a continental breakfast left me inclined to eat more than normal in an attempt to get my money's worth.
The location is 2 blocks from the harbor, easy walk to convention center attractions as well as harbor walk to nearby Stanley park. The hotel, though very nice is showing its age, mostly in exterior architecture & room hallways. The pool/spa was a bit dirty and not very well lit. The lobby makes a great first impression but diminishes with interaction with the rest of the spaces...
location Restauarnt tawdry: all furniture worn/torn, seriously in need of refurbishment. Security panels on doors and high-pressure door closers give impression of ongoing issues re security - perhaps unwarranted, but questionable.
Very nice and helpful staff. Awesome location. Nice lobby, restaurant/bar I booked a king but got a room with two twins (or two EXTREMELY small queens), bathroom wasn't very clean and bed and pillows were not very comfortable.
Excellent access to the cruise terminal. A very comfy environment. We walked and used public transportation to make our way about the city, staying 3 days and two nights. We had no negative experiences or observations.
We stayed here while attending the Sea Wheeze festivities. We loved how close the location was to the convention center and the Stanley Park since that was where most of our weekend was spent. It was very nice stay. Would definitely stay here again.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful .the accommodations were only so so and paying $300 USD for a $100 room was a downer.
Good location near Canada Place and the waterfront. Walking distance to Gaslamp. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. We had an issue with noise due to some late-night partiers and management upgraded and moved us the next day after quieting the offending room. Couldn't be happier with the quality and cleanliness all throughout. The cafes and restaurants were very convenient as well. We traveled with our three young children and everyone was very nice and respectful the entire time, we never felt out of place. We didn't get a chance to use the pool but could see that it was being used by kids on both days we were there. Room service was fantastic and the service was great as well. Not much we didn't like. It was a bit pricey but we felt we got great value considering it is a luxury property.
The air of sophistication and luxury. The ambience at the Fairmont Pacific Rim is hard to match. I liked the knowledgeable staff and their willingness to be of service to guests. House keeping can still improve in their cleanliness.
Personal service! Every need is met. Each staff member went out of their way to make sure our stay was the best it could be. For instance, Chef Nathan, who we met upstairs while looking over the menu, offered to make us special dinners in preparation for our marathon the next day. He led us to the casual restaurant and custom created pasta dishes for us! What a treat! It was delicious! Also,every encounter was greeted with such politeness! The live music was awesome. We were on the street side and it was quiet, unlike another report. I LOVE THIS HOTEL! Loved everything about it. Will be back!
Well I did book room with a kingsize bed which I did not get.I did not make a fuss about it but if a request was specifically made, then it should be honored.
closeness to downtown parking- get real. pool/gym need serious upgrade
The excellent service, location in town, and the good food at the hotel restaurant
The position was very good and the rooms confortable.
Perfect location downtown Vancouver, nice breakfastbuffet, friendly staff
Great hotel. Convenient location. Attentive Staff. Nothing.
everything is close to this hotel ya expensive
inflexibility in check-out time
The location was great both for the event that I attended and for the shopping locally.
not enough desk space or staff at registration desk
Well located. Staff at your service. Very nice room . Arrived at 11h30 pm and no food available since kitchen closed at 11pm. No appetizers available.
This is a great location.the staff is helpful and you are able to easily walk to many Vancouver sites.
The rooms are small, but everything else was great. Fantastic front desk. The hotel was quite willing to change a reservation by 24 hours, but not the hotel booker. Turns out that the booking service (that begins with "K" and won't allow comments on this site, uses a third party hotel booker (also not allowed a mention here) but begins with a "G" who are totally inflexible.
Staff and Building were fabulous. Location was great. The online/website marketing advertised hot tub and swimming pool facilities as part of the building. Turns out, there is none. Also - details in the room itself for maintenance = the drain plug on the "soaking tub" did not close and, therefore soaking could not happen....and the "hot" water only ever got to tepid-warm for the shower I took.
no slippers in room ...
Friendly staff. Clean room. They didn't have an exercise room....the one elliptical and bike in a room with a drop down ceiling that couldn't accommodate anyone over 5'5' was VERY disappointing.
Suite was beautiful
The rooms were clean and spacious. the facility was nice. The people were helpful. No problems.
Restaurant has very limited options and very rude staff. food taste poor and not worth money. Hotel is very small with limited facilities. I will not like to stay again.
This is my third stay in this property. Great location, great staff, having a seating area a big plus! Very quiet. Am appreciative that it's not your typical business type chain hotel. Because my first stay was after property first opened, like all "homes," am starting to see the wear and tear of time. Hope the property stays energized vs transforming into a tired grande dame.
We booked this hotel somewhat last minute after an Airbnb reservation didn't work out. We were very pleased with the hotel. The location couldn't be better, service was very friendly, and the room was spacious and well-appointed. No pool or hot tub, but for a smaller hotel like this, it's not unusual.
Could store luggage there after cruise Nothing
Location. Staffs For every little things I was charged , like domestic calls !!! Really?
We had an amazing stay at the Fairmont. The entire staff was beyond helpful and friendly which really made the holiday. Always smiling and giving extra attention. Location is perfect. Right by the waterfront but also walking distance to shops and restaurants. Rooms were very comfortable plus clean and again super friendly staff making sure your every need is met and that you have a great stay. Highly recommend staying here. Everything was great!
This is a beautiful hotel and an exellent place to stay if you are leaving on or coming back from a cruise. The Arc restaurant is wonderful and all of the hotel staff are the best.. Our luggage was transferred to the ship for us which was a plus. The rooms are beautiful with spectacular views of the harbor and Canada Place.. We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer.
LOVED THE Location and loved this Hotel! BEAUTIFUL
Great room. Comfortable bed. Late night room service was excellent!
We thought that the bellmen were incredibly friendly and personable. We were given a complimentary drink at Arc as it was our anniversary; very thoughtful. Didn't like the fact that for a higher end hotel there wasn't free WIFI. Paying $13.95 for WIFI seemed too expensive when we paid over $500 for the night.
Excellent service and attention to detail
In a world where wifi has become fundamental for communication and information, and is offered for free all over the world because it is an inexpensive way to draw business, the fairmont charges $14 per day. I would have paid if it was just included in the already expensive room rate. As intended, I didn't read the fine print and was shocked to find out I had to go to the lobby to work. I was on a business trip. Also, I had to set the thermostat to 90, the maximum, to warm the room. It was never comfortably warm.
The customer service at this hotel was unbelievable. Shout out of gratitude to risa and stephanie up in the Gold Lounge. What an amazing experience. The hotel is literally across the street from the cruise terminal. Great running course along the sea wall. A cant-miss Vancouver hotel!!!!!
The staff was friendly and courteous. Check in/out was smooth. The room clean and nice. The gym and pool had everything you would need for a long weekend. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants, parks, and the waterfront. We will return.
Waterfront Baggage taken separately instead of in same elevator, and baggage gentlemen was very pushy as well as the valet attendant. Park elsewhere nearby for much cheaper.
Outstanding room, view, service, staff, water pressure, exercise facilities, restaurant. N/A
That my dog was allowed to stay with me and the location.
I stayed at the Coast Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver in mid December about two weeks before Christmas. Decided to head north for the holiday and go see Christmas lights somewhere cold (Butchart Gardens in Victoria was AMAZING, by the way). Vancouver was definitely in full swing for the holidays, but the city is pretty quiet and the crowds have dwindled by this time of year. Everything was fantastic. It's freezing, but I'm pretty sure the bedding was nice and warm, because I remember sleeping like a baby. The room was a decent size with good amenities, the bathroom was huge, and everything is "green" - recycling; economy sized bottles of shampoo, lotion, etc.; not unnecessarily washing towels that aren't really dirty... I'm from Los Angeles, so I hate to see water waste. You won't find any at this hotel :) Everything is walking distance - It's centrally located, about at 12 minute walk to the train that takes you to and from the airport, and only a block or two from the water. It rained (duh), so we took taxis a few times (at present, Uber doesn't operate in Van city), but if you have a hood and an umbrella, you shouldn't worry. The city is built for wet weather, and everything went along smoothly. The best part of the hotel was the staff. Can't remember the name of the guy at the front desk (Louis? Luis? I may have made that up.), but he had spot on recommendations for food and attractions. He recommended a great brunch spot called Medina and a fun Christmas Market (German style) with a photobooth, cider, mulled wine, and a lot of hand-made crafts. I had a great time in Vancouver and would definitely stay here again. Two very excited thumbs up! Note: We also took the Westcoast Sightseeing bus to Victoria. They pick up and drop off directly at the hotel, which is really great if you're planning on taking any side trips to Victoria. I haven't got one, single complaint. I guess the views from some rooms aren't as great as others, but why gripe about the view when you can go out into the city and actually experience it.
The front desk was extremely helpful in getting us settled and helping us get a reservation at a fantastic but very popular restaurant nearby. And when we arrived at the restaurant the hotel sent a small hors d'oeuvre plate to us as a gift. Very classy. All the hotel service people were friendly and professional. We loved our corner bedroom with a view of downtown Vancouver. The windows went from floor to ceiling and the light was beautiful even though snow was falling. Beds were comfortable too. We booked on Kayak and the price was very reasonable for a city hotel near the waterfront. I would definitely go back. The Lobby was designed as a contemporary open space but it felt too big and vacant. Its interior design could be freshened.
Great location, nice amenities and room. Friendly staff and very clean. Bed a bit too soft. Elevator shaft was audible and a bit annoying.
Loved the modern décor and style of the hotel.
Perfectly located near the convention center with a knowledgable and kind staff. The room is excellent. The facilities are modern and clean. Would definitely stay again and will be recommending to others.
The location is great, the way the staff treats you and the overall quality. For the price we paid I would have expected a bigger room. Then I would have loved to have open view to the north harbour but a building was blocking partially our view, a little bummer although my wife loved it.
Was advertised as a supreme king suite. We opened the door on the 16th floor expecting a suite. A seperate seating area. Somewhere we could sit & look at the view of the harbour & Stanley park. Instead we found a king size bed, with 1 chair in the corner. A coffee maker with only plastic cups to drink our dark roast coffee,that once we added whitner it turned gray. The small tv on the wall was off to 1 side, leaving 1 person to sit on the bed ( which was quite comfortable) on an awkward angle. Overall it was a nice hotel that left a sour taste
Location is very central Pool, fitness room, and all amenities that make a 4-star hotel a 4-star hotel were unavailable. Staff was hardly accommodating. Room deco was very outdated and not completely clean.
close to train station coffee maker in room worked well Lions Pub was good felt safe Hotel is a few floors in a tall building...not a 4 or 5 star experience...harbor view was partial...breakfast very minimal,better at a sleep inn...furniture worn and outdated...not romantic
Amazing location in downtown Vancouver to enjoy all the terrific city has to offer! Beautiful views and gorgeous rooms but it all boils down to location! Breakfast was a nice perk too!
Location, helpful staff and access to fitness center were excellent. elevators and carpets ingeneral (rooms and aísles) are very deteriorated.
The property is a very easy walk (even in inclement weather) to the convention center. It excels based on value: a bit cheaper than the others but includes continental breakfast and a access to a nice fitness center.
I liked the breakfest Hotel conditions
Location.. Going on Cruise and only 1.5 blocks from Cruise Ship Terminal. and 1 block from Train.... The Room Suite was well decorated and very comfortable, Clean and prepared for our arrival. Had booked 2 rooms and paid in advance. On arrival only showed one room booked. Staff worked to correct issue but only after turning attention to other parties who arrived at counter then came back to us. Poor Signage walled past the Hotel. Very poor continental breakfast , appears added as a after thought, not enough room or selection. Common areas on floor were not environmental regulated areas were hot and muggy
* gym, pool, sauna * location * $8/day for slow wifi, $15/day for OK wifi
Beds were very comfortable We had 3 people in our party so we got a room with a king bed & a roll away. Wasn't happy !
I liked the location. It was easy walking distance to eating and shopping locations. Also, could purchase city tours at front desk and cab service was easily available.
The location was great! It was walking distance to restaurants, the harbor, and a stop for the hop on hop off tours. It said breakfast was included, and then they wouldn't let us have breakfast. That was the major reason I picked them.
Good service Good location They nickle and dime you; parking was $10 daily more than advertised on my confirmation (they said it was an old rate, although I only booked two days before the stay!). Then they charge for wifi! Seriously!?!?!? Who charges for wifi these days?
Rooms were good however lighting was poor. Near cruise port and near public transportation. Mary Castelo
Convenient location to cruise ships. Front desk staff was the best.
Great location, really convenient to the Convention Center and the Gaslight district and shopping. The bar (music) in the hotel was quite loud and could be heard from my room till closing. The room I stayed in also had no view to speak of it basically faced the building next door and barely got any natural light as I was on a lower floor.
It was relatively close to the cruise ship terminals. I thought the rooms were very small and really could use an update.
The new bathroom was beautiful The heater didn't work and it was freezing. The floor looked like it was under construction
Good location Outdated and dirty.
Very helpful and accommodating staff. We were able to have an early check in which was very helpful. The location is convenient to a major transportation hub. Noisy night club next door
location is perfect the room smelled old, musty and like mildew. it was clean, so i couldn't rate it low on that and it was comfortable except for the smell, so i downgraded both those categories by one notch to reflect the awful smell. room was very small and hard to fit our luggage in an easily accessible way.
The rooms were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was wonderful and the safe was kind and curtious. The rooms were very small and tight. There was not much room to lay out one's luggage. The bathrooms were even smaller. The water temperature was VERY difficult to regulate and it was common to be scalded and frozen all in one shower.
