Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, Vancouver, British Columbia
Fairmont Pacific Rim sits on the ocean’s edge, in the heart of Vancouver’s historic port and financial district. Soaring 430 feet high as one of downtown’s largest buildings, it offers unobstructed views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park, and Coal Harbour. Art and architectural detail have always held pride of place, and the exterior of the building is sure to captivate even before entering the hotel. Three extraordinary works of public art include the latest unveiling of ‘16’ by design firm, Bocci. The hotel’s growing collection is not themed, rather driven by interest and passion, and priority has been placed on showcasing the best of local Vancouver artists. The innovative guest services program includes a fleet of BMW bicycles along with seasonal Bike Butlers, mapping out the best road bike trails. And, Fairmont Pacific Rim was the first Canadian property to implement iPad 2 devices with Intelity, allowing guests to customize their stay with a touch of a fingertip.
