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 450 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 2015 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.
Poetry Along the Windows
"Lying on top of a building the clouds looked no nearer than when I was lying on the street." Public art occupying floors 5-22 of the Fairmont Pacific Rim. In Canada, 1 percent of the construction budget of a commercial building must go to public art or something like that. I scribbled that on a napkin after meeting a friend for a few Granville Island beers,so I probably don't have that quite right. Vancouver, Canada.

The Willow Stream Spa in Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim provides stunning ocean and mountain views with nine treatment areas, including a couples’ room with deep Japanese Zen tub. What makes this one of Canada's best spas though is the three lounges (two with fireplaces), outdoor spa terrace and a full fitness centre, three outdoor hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms. They have complimentary tea, juices, and snacks and you can also have a healthy organic lunch brought up from the award winning Oru restaurant, making this a perfect place to spend the day.
