FAIRMONT PACIFIC RIM
History & Story
Fairmont Pacific Rim began welcoming the world on the eve of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter games and has developed a reputation for excellence with its superb services, outstanding architecture, and waterfront location adjacent to the newly constructed Vancouver Convention Centre.
Perched on the edge of the Burrard inlet overlooking an expanse of water that extends toward the Pacific Ocean, the hotel is, in both a figurative and literal sense, a getaway property. With five-star amenities, creative design and dining offerings, rich use of polished stone and natural woods, prime harbor front location, Fairmont Pacific Rim is a contemporary interpretation of what historically made a Fairmont hotel stand out.
Named as tribute to Vancouver’s position as a doorway to the Far East, the hotel fuses elements of both Asian and North American Culture in to its design. While staying true to Fairmont legacy as a place of grand occasion, the hotel is destined to be an iconic hotel of its time.
The hotel is a new build hotel and was completed on February 2010, so we have not gone through renewal projects.
