I’ve been told that The Fairmont Waterfront welcomes more guests from places in British Columbia than any of the other Fairmont properties. Fact or myth one thing is certain you will have a wonderful stay at The Fairmont Waterfront Hotel no matter where you hail from.
If you are arriving by air at YVR hop The Canada Line to Waterfront Station and within steps, you are there.
The Fairmont Waterfront, as the name suggests is located across from the harbour, cruise ship terminal, and the Vancouver Convention Centre East. Drop your bags and take the hotel bikes for a ride around the Seawall, grab a picnic basket for Stanley Park or explore the emerging culinary scene of Gastown by foot. What a terrific spot for your holiday, business trip, or staycation.
The hotel recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation. The luxe Fairmont Gold floor has been totally revamped and features complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and evening canapés, personal concierge service and a terrace with some of the best views in town.
Featuring the welcoming Herons West Coast Kitchen + Bar, take a seat by the window or on the patio and watch the hustle and bustle of the harbour. Chef Dana Hauser sources the freshest ingredients from local partners like local cheese makers Golden Ears Cheesecrafters.

Dishes at Herons are varied from sustainable seafood to their signature West Coast Slider Trio with beer pairings, featuring their own Fairmont Stinger Honey Lager created in partnership with Whistler Brewery and using honey from their very own rooftop apiary.
Did you know The Fairmont Waterfront has their own rooftop herb garden and bee hives? The freshness of ingredients will enhance your dining experience. Try their afternoon ‘Hive’ tea, a honey-infused twist on traditional afternoon tea and don’t miss ‘Appy hour’ with half price appetizers nightly from 5 to 7.
When it comes time to go back home, always too soon, hop on The Canada Line at Waterfront Station and relax as you are whisked away to YVR in no time.
