Fairmont Pacific Rim is a five-star hotel in the heart of downtown Vancouver that officially opened its doors on February 5, 2010 — 10 years ago tomorrow.

The hotel’s high guest rating was calculated using data provided by TripAdvisor, with a total of 3777 guests reviewing the Fairmont Pacific Rim, giving it a rating of 5 on a scale of 1 to 5.

Last year, the hotel won Travel + Leisure World’s Best Award for 2019, AAA/CAA Five Diamond Award for 2019, and TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for 2019.

Among the numerous critic reviews comes one from Forbes that describes the hotel’s stylish offerings.

“One block from the waterfront downtown, this deluxe tower mixes Asian and west coast elements, and offers an extensive art program, plenty of high-tech amenities and several stylish restaurants and lounges that attract travelers and locals,” says the review.

The second-best hotel in Canada also hails from Vancouver, with the Rosewood Hotel Georgia coming in at #2.
