Lunch for $19.39, Live Music, Happy Hour Party –and of course, cake on the menu for 80thanniversary  

On May 25, 1939 the third Hotel Vancouver swung open its doors and four days later welcomed King George VI and Queen Elizabeth who officially opened the property and were guests at a luncheon held in their honour. Eighty years later, the hotel has become a city landmark and, although the menu has changed, is still playing host to royals and celebrities.  To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver invites the public to drop in on May 24th and enjoy:
