And here are a few photos of the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver - definitely one of my favourite Fairmont properties! The hotel has just opened in early 2010 in time for the Winter Olympics and is located on the waterfront at Coal harbour. Lobby: rooms / suites: Rooms are very modern with electric panels for lighting, bathroom mirrors have a TV etc.. Service during all of my stays was excellent and the staff always amkes sure I warmly greeted back. Rooms are 400sq.ft and typically have one or two beds, a desk and a large bathroom with sink, toilet, bathtub and walk-in shower. Most suites are 800sq.ft.-900sq.ft. and have a separate, spacious living room. Some rooms and suites also have a private patio, though boooking one o fthose rooms (escept for the Poolview rooms/suites) can be a bit of a challenge. Gold Lounge: If you have a chance staying on the Gold floor (located on the 18th/19th floor IIRC) I can definitely recommend it: good breakfast offering, nice selection of evening canapes (sushi, smoked salmon, antipasti etc.), excellent service and fantastic views from the patio: Poolview Suite: All poolview rooms / suites have a private patio, some with a very nice sitting area/fireplace: SkyDeck suite: The SkyDeck suite is located on the 7th floor and consists of a (standard) 800sq.ft. suite and a huge patio: Overall a fantastic property I can recommend to anyone visiting Vancouver!
