Meetings at This Location

The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is a beautiful and historic landmark in downtown Vancouver and is surrounded by the majestic North Coast Mountains. The hotel offers a complimentary fitness facility, spa (charges apply), indoor swimming pool, a restaurant and lounge. Within a few minutes' walk of the hotel is Robson Street, which provides superb shopping and dining options. Just a few of the must-see attractions in this oceanfront city are Stanley Park, The Vancouver Art Gallery and Granville Island. Three ski areas are only a short drive away and offer alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding, as well as snowshoeing, ice-skating and sleigh rides when weather permits. Complimentary ski shuttles will be available from the hotel. Vancouver boasts not only all of the resort options you would expect, but also a cosmopolitan city appeal.
