Fairmont Waterfront: Relaxed Luxury on the West Coast
A luxurious and laid back west coaster in the trio of downtown Vancouver Fairmont hotels, Fairmont Waterfront is a certified 5 Green Key and Zero Waste property – a perfect fit for eco-minded travelers.
489 guestrooms with spectacular water views and luxurious amenities are perfect for work, rest or play. Unwind on the exclusive Fairmont Gold floor, a “hotel within a hotel” experience with special privileges that recognizes your individuality.
Located in vibrant downtown Vancouver, guests at Fairmont Waterfront are just steps away from the Vancouver Convention Centre, cruise ship terminal, and rapid transit options. A short jaunt will have you sampling the trendy pubs and eateries of historic Gastown, browsing the latest fashions on Robson Street, or biking amongst the giant trees of world-renowned Stanley Park. Use of hotel bicycles is complimentary for Le Club AccorHotels loyalty members.
GOOD FOOD SHOULDN’T BE COMPLICATED
ARC Restaurant + Bar offers simply inspired fare in a unique space that’s sure to become the spot you’ll meet with old friends and new. Executive Chef Karan Suri handcrafts urban artisanal cuisine using fresh, locally sourced ingredients – some from Fairmont Waterfront’s own rooftop garden.
Quench your thirst and unwind with a selection of local craft beers, world class wines, and expertly mixed cocktails, all to the tune of nightly live music from local talent.
THE HOTEL WITH BUZZ
Since introducing bees in 2008 in an effort to aid Colony Collapse Disorder within North American honeybees, the hotel has worked in tandem with the Honeybee Centre, BC Honey Producers and Hives for Humanity to maintain the hives and their colonies. Up to 250,000 honeybees call the rooftop of the Fairmont Waterfront home every summer, producing an average of 200lbs of honey per season which is then sustainably harvested and can be sampled in honey-infused cocktails and dishes in ARC Restaurant.
In an exciting partnership with Hives for Humanity, the hotel has introduced mason bees to the hotel’s garden as part of the Pollinator Corridor Project. These “super-pollinators” are tiny, docile bees that don’t produce honey but are essential for the garden and the planet.
Want to get up close and personal? Daily bee tours are open to both guests and the public throughout the summer from the Bee Butler and members of his Bee Team.
TAKE TIME TO SMELL THE HERBS
The hotel’s 2,100 square foot herb garden was introduced in 1995 and was one of the first green roofs in Vancouver. The organically farmed garden is an oasis in the city, providing calming views, acting as a bird sanctuary, and supplying plenty of fresh bounty for the Chef’s plant-to-plate menu creations. It is also recognized by the Canadian Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Friendly Habitat.
Located within half an hour of Vancouver International Airport and just across the street from Canada Place cruise ship terminal, Fairmont Waterfront is the perfect place to enjoy casual West Coast luxury and unparalleled service in the heart of Vancouver.
