Vancouver, de Gateway van de Pacific, is een van de populairste steden ter wereld. En niet voor niets. Vancouver is tevens uitvalsbasis voor een (auto-)reis door het westen van Canada of voor een uitstapje naar Vancouver Island.
"Five Star Hotel... One Star Welcome"
As another review said, this place is beautiful. I won't bore you with the amenities that you already have read over and over again. What I will say is that if you dress casually you may not get the same treatment as others who are dressed more professionally. When my husband and I were at the pool we found a vacant table to sit. We saw other tables being waited on and assumed that we would be waited on as well. Ten minutes later three business men in three piece suits in 90 degree heat came and sat at a table next to us. They were immediately waited on. I had to get up, go to the bar, ask for water and our drink orders. I was not able to wait at the bar for the drinks but rather was told to go sit down and they would bring it to us. It truly made me feel as though I just didn't belong. Sad really. The next morning we want to the Fairmont Vancouver and had breakfast. Though that hotel is older and has a very very elegant feel we were very welcomed. If I had to choose again I would go with the Fairmont Vancouver not the Pacific Rim.
"Style over substance"
There's no denying this is a 5 star hotel, in a great location, with beautifully appointed rooms that checks all the boxes for business types with fat expense accounts or older weathly clients who want to enjoy the spoils of luxury. Such spoils include iPad controlled drapes, embedded TV screen in the bathroom mirror, large screen TV, and my favourite...Fairmont slippers. For amenities, the pool has a fantastic view of the north shore mountains, but there was no change room by the pool. The bustling bar in the main lobby is a happening place with live music, and an achingly upscale hipster crowd. A rotating showcase of bmw electric bicycles out front is available for hotel guests, but unfortunately not complimentary. Non-electric bikes are however free. What struck me most though was the lack of a welcoming feel, all style, catering to their demographic clientele who were all older or in business suits. I guess me wearing my casual clothes was too much for one staff member to process, having returned from a bike tour of the city I was asked going up the elevator where I was going, and when I replied with my floor number she asked "are you sure?" I guess I'm not old enough and not well dressed enough as I was followed to my room by this staff member. I normally stay at more family friendly hotels but was visiting on business, and came to the realization that this hotel was all style over substance. It came across like the wannabes in the hotel lobby bar, cold and pretentious but wrapped in a shiny veneer.
"Another perfect stay "
We were so happy to be back at the Pacific Rim again. Truly everything was perfect from the second we arrived until we left. Everyone we encountered all week was so kind, helpful, and genuine. Its so nice seeing the same friendly faces every time we stay here - it's clear the staff love working here and take great pride in the hotel. We'd highly recommend upgrading to the gold floors to enjoy the beautiful views from the lounge and spending a few hours in the outdoor area of the spa. Thank you to everyone for another amazing stay.
Stayed a week in June. Very nice. High tech room. Staff was very helpful and Hotel had a BMW service to drop you most anywhere downtown at no cost. Nice central location and easy access to many restaurants.
The hotel is terrific, but also fantastic is the Lobby Lounge. You meet some interesting characters. Last night, some jerk ordered a â€œvelocityâ€. Evita made it immediately, just a few questions asked. Lovely staff.
