A Vancouver Love Letter

A Vancouver Love Letter

Valentine’s Day is about loved ones – and that means it’s the perfect time to celebrate all the ones you love. We adore a good date night, but this time of year is also an opportunity to spread the love far and wide with friends, family, and fur babies! Just call us Cupid.


At Fairmont Waterfront we know that pets are part of the family, so bring Fido along on your next getaway and we’ll roll out the red carpet! Tails will be wagging thanks to our complimentary welcome treats, and your pup will feel right at home with their very own comfy bed and bowls.

Should they choose to leave the comfort of their cushy hotel pet bed, the Stanley Park seawall is just a block away. Crab Park is only a 15 minute walk and offers a grassy off-leash area and a swimming beach.

Bonus: Pets stay free – no hidden fees here!


If it’s been awhile since you’ve been out with the gang (or out of sweatpants), it’s time to get the band back together for an epic Palentine’s gathering. Take in the views at our rooftop pool, melt away stress in the hot tub and indulge in Happy Hour (to be followed by breakfast in bed, naturally).

Gastown is only a short stroll from the hotel and caters to an array of interests – shop till you drop at eclectic boutiques, challenge your crew to a cooking class, or practice your self-care with a float tank or cryotherapy session.


With both Valentine’s and Family Day in February, there’s no better time for a little break with the little ones. Kids robes and slippers are available upon request for a cozy trip to the pool. For a unique experience, FlyOver Canada is just across the street and the perfect activity for a rainy afternoon.

Sweeten the deal with a visit to ARC Restaurant. The whole family will love dunking fruit, pretzels, macaroons, and even mini donuts into ARC’s Belgian Chocolate Fondue, a sweet treat that’s definitely a team effort!

Fairmont loves February! Experience the grandest of romantic feelings at Fairmont Waterfront among a laidback and luxurious West Coast setting with easy access to everything in downtown Vancouver.
