Welcome to
Fairmont Waterfront

We currently live in a world that is changing rapidly – by the day and by the hour. As we navigate through these times of change and uncertainty, we do so with the safety of both our loyal and valued guests and employees as our highest priority. We must support our local authorities as they work to halt the spread of COVID-19. And so, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the doors of our hotel. Effective Tuesday, March 24 at 12:00pm PT, this also includes ARC restaurant and bar. 

This certainly isn’t goodbye, it is farewell for now. We’ll be in touch with updates through this website and our social channels, to ensure that our dedicated community is informed, connected and supported through these trying times. We’ll be back as soon as we can, and look forward to welcoming each of you in the near future!

Located on the city’s dynamic harbourfront, Fairmont Waterfront is a world class luxury hotel in Vancouver, and proudly embraces a sustainable philosophy. We offer upscale comfort, personalized service, and unparalleled West Coast views, with easy access to everything that makes Vancouver spectacular. All this… and we like to have a little fun, too. 

When it comes to convenient location, it’s hard to beat Fairmont Waterfront. We’re steps away from the Vancouver Convention Centre, the cruise ship terminal, and Waterfront Sky Train Station. 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.
