How it Ranks: The Fairmont Waterfront ranks #9 out of 302 Vancouver Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Vancouver.

Our Take: Admired by cruise passengers and luxury-seekers alike, The Fairmont Waterfront plays off of Vancouver's best asset: its majestic mountains. Whether you're gazing at them from the floor-to-ceiling windows in your room or while lounging at the heated outdoor pool, the Fairmont's surroundings are a consistent source of praise from recent guests. And because this Fairmont is conveniently located across the street from the cruise ship terminal, passengers can easily go from boat to hotel, or vice versa. Along with the superb location, visitors gush over the clean, comfortable accommodations, appointed with stocked minibars, Keurig coffee makers and Le Labo toiletries. When you're ready for a bite to eat, head to Herons West Coast Kitchen + Bar, where the chef incorporates ingredients from the hotel's 2,100-square-foot rooftop garden and on-site honeybee colony into a seafood-focused menu. Note: Herons West Coast Kitchen + Bar is currently undergoing renovations; the Terrace Room will serve as a pop-up lounge until Herons West Coast Kitchen opens its doors in February 2014. If you're a Fairmont President's Club member, you can earn future free nights and airline miles for choosing to bed down here.
