The location for this hotel was amazing, right in front of Canada place with a great view of the mountains and the harbour. The staff were very kind and polite. The room was clean and spacious with an amazing view. And on top of all that the food at the Arc is a must have.

This was a mandatory quarantine stay, however Fairmont made it a pleasure and ensured we felt like valued guests. Check in/check out was seamless. The room was well equipped, comfortable and beautiful. Safety protocols were handled efficiently, thoroughly and professionally. The dining options were great and the food quality was excellent. On arrival we were told that we would not be charged for the third night if we had early check out due to early PCR results. This was the case & indeed Fairmont have refunded the cost of the third night to our account. What an honorable touch! Previously we endured a quarantine stay with another brand in Toronto & it was truly DREADFUL in every regard. We did highlight our experience to the brand but can see from reviews that nothing has changed. — this recent experience highlights that Fairmont take Customer Care seriously, in a way that not all other brands do. We regard this as maximum praise worthy. We are very impressed and very grateful - well done to all at Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver. We look forward to our next stay with you.

I booked the hotel as it was one of the best options for mandatory quarantine, the room came with harbour view, it was the best quarantine experienced ever. The staff were very friendly and provided exceptional service.

I cannot rate my experience higher. The mandatory 3 Day hotel stay was much dreaded by me but it turned out to be a most pleasant experience. The room was clean and spacious, the mountains and water view breath taking and they took covid safety measures seriously. There was an extensive menu to choose your three meals from, and it tasted just as if you were dining in their dining rooms, always hot and fresh. The service from the front desk was polite and efficient. And best of all, you can book two sessions of fresh air time on the patio every day. It is really a very nice touch. Frankly, I would have stayed the entire 14 days if I could afford it. I would highly recommend this place. It is a little pricer than the other ones on the mandatory hotel list but absolutely worth it.

I changed my travel plans so that I could spend my mandatory quarantine at a Fairmont hotel in Vancouver as a result of watching horror stories of stays at GAA properties in Toronto (and the first had story of my wife having come in through Toronto from MENA). This “government approved accommodation” has not sacrificed the Fairmont dedication to guest experience despite the need to be stringent in enforcing COVID-19 precautions. Let’s start with staff: I wasn’t treated like a pariah on arrival but welcomed as a guest. The check in was contactless but not impersonal or cold. Every interaction was courteous and dedicated to making my mandatory stay better. Next the room: as is always the case Fairmont details are made for comfort. The bed is the core of the room and critical for someone 10 time zones from home. Needless to say it was perfect. The Food: much has been said about the poor quality of quarantine food in Canada. Three weeks ago I was in isolation in Singapore and raved about fresh seafood and local flavours in the provided food. The food here MAKES ME WANT TO STAY IN QUARANTINE. Full stop. Great selection, fast delivery and so tasty. All in: if you are coming to Canada I strongly recommend you do what I did and change your plans to arrive in Vancouver and come here, to the Fairmont Harbourfront, and serve your time in style. This room was only a few dozen more than my wife’s stay in Toronto but the difference is…I don’t want to leave (and I got my arrival negative test result 8 hours after I landed)!!!! Thanks Fairmont. I will be back, quarantine or not.
