New to the Vancouver scene, Fairmont Pacific Rim has already made its mark among the top hotels in the city with its sophisticated yet contemporary style and five-star standards. Located in the heart of the historic port and financial district, the hotel boasts unobstructed views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park and Coal Harbour.
Fairmont Pacific Rim, designed by James Cheng, the architect whose green glass towers helped create the term "Vancouverism" combines the best of Asia and the west coast in its plan and décor; connecting to the surrounding area and capturing the true outdoor lifestyle. Art is the leading role in the hotel and plays homage to two public art pieces, beginning with a running line of repeat text by Internationally acclaimed artist Liam Gillick in his signature choice of Helvetica bold: Lying on top of a building the clouds looked no nearer than when I was lying on the street. On the other side of the building glistens silver in the sun from an abstract forest and teases with an image of a North Vancouver Rainforest that is best seen on the south side of Cordova Street. Joseph Wu, a master origami artist based in Vancouver, has created a sculpture 180 feet long that soars across the lobby ceiling and is illuminated so it appears to be a light fixture and can be viewed from the lobby level, to draw guests to the restaurant's second level.
Inside, naturally inspired materials decorate the hotel along with comfortable furnishings and luxurious accommodations and suites. Designed to exceed expectations, all 377 luxury guest rooms not only radiate five-star luxury, but surpass it around every corner. Accommodations feature luxury linens, spacious marble bathrooms with television-mirrors, Stearns & Foster beds and harbor or mountain views in 70 percent of their accommodations. For those needing a little extra boost in the mornings, the hotel offers Nespresso machines inside each room.
Suites include private patios with outdoor fireplaces, sweeping views and spacious marble spa bathrooms with soaker tubs. Guests can live like a 'celeb' in the Fairmont Pacific Rim's Owner's suite. Nicknamed the 'Rock Star suite', guests are whisked away in their private elevator entering 2,250 sq feet of pure opulence!
In addition to its already lavish amenities and services, Fairmont Pacific Rim offers guests the Fairmont Gold exclusive lifestyle experience. Perks of the Fairmont Gold level include private check-in, complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, concierge and butler services, and canapés during cocktail hour in the private lounge.
The exceptional dining within the hotel showcases foods of the Pacific Northwest and flavors of the Pacific Rim that are locally sourced and utilizing harvested ingredients.
Oru’s open kitchen and private dining room has two chef's tables and wine tasting room with the largest sake cellar in the city. Check out the stylish and eclectic café, giovane for delicious house-baked pastries, deli sandwiches and pizzas. Filled with light from a sparkling wall of drop-down windows by day, the space transforms into a sexy sophisticated winebar by night.
If meeting friends, The Lobby Lounge & Terrace is a perfect place for cozying up by the fireplace in large leather chairs or listening to live music. Classic cocktails and the raw bar menu are sure to satisfy here.
