Fairmont Pacific Rim
Built in preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel towers a lofty 48 floors above the Burrard Inlet waterfront, with panoramic views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park, and Coal Harbour. The hotel, which occupies the first 22 floors, is connected to the Vancouver Convention Centre, making it a convenient place to stay during large events or business meetings. The 340 standard guest rooms and 37 suites welcome patrons with Mascioni linens and bedside touch screens to control lighting, temperature, curtains, and entertainment. The sixth-floor pool is a great spot to relax before or after a meal at Giovane, an Italian-inspired café and wine bar.
