We live in the Seattle area and went to Vancouver BC for a Friday and Saturday night quick getaway. We chose the Fairmont Vancouver because we like the location and had been to the hotel before - plus the rate was fantastic (* a night quoted * for two nights with tax - US funds - plus another 30 for parking and 12 for Internet - Canadian - at about .78 US to 1.00 Canadian - what a difference a few months have made). The Fairmont is in the heart of downtown, you can't be more centrally located. We parked the car Friday night and picked it up Sunday morning. The Bellagio coffee shop next door is the hot tip for breakfast. We had lunch at the Kalypso Greek restaurant a few blocks away on Robson - a repeat favorite. We ate in the hotel restaurant the first night, which was very nice. We ate in the bar (900 room?) the next night, and had good music and drinks to go with nachos and ceasar salad split two ways - which was much the better value. The room was spacious and clean. We stayed in the Blue Horizon once and it was noisier - both street noise and noise from other rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief vacation.
