Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
The grand lobby is spacious and inviting - always full of the largest fresh flower bouquets I have ever seen! The lounge is a great place to grab a nice drink and watch the people go by.
The rooms are lavishly appointed and make me feel right at home. The downtown location is perfect and makes everything within walking distance, but why would you want to leave? And believe me, from this location you can do a ton of people watching.
There is a world class spa offering a variety of treatments - I really wanted to try their hot chocolate & whipped cream body scrub/wrap but its way out of my price range at $300! Maybe someone out there will be able to indulge and tell me about it later. Any takers?
The only other concern I have about this majestic hotel is paying for parking, but this is the same with ANY downtown Vancouver hotel. I just figure if I'm spending well above $300 per night (for which I had a much lesser corporate rate when I stayed) that parking should just be included in the price. Who wants to be gouged another $30 per night to park your car? It just seems a little unnecessary and maybe even a little bit tacky?
So, if you can't afford to stay there, just go there to check it out. Walk in like you own the place, take the elevator to the top floor and have a look around. Oh, and don't forget the ballrooms if you can get into them - they are stunning. Many socialite Vancouverites are married in these rooms.
Happy traveling!! [more]
