The Ultimate Vancouver Girl’s Weekend Guide

The ultimate Vancouver girl’s weekend guide

Has it been a minute since you’ve hung out with your best girlfriends? After more than a year homebound, now is the time to reconnect, celebrate and enjoy all that beautiful British Columbia has to offer and make it the ultimate girls’ weekend getaway.
Even the girls of Sex and the City are getting back together. It’s time you and your girls did too. We’ve curated our top 5 to-dos for your fabulous girl’s weekend getaway:


ARC Dining at Fairmont Waterfront offers the ultimate brunch – Bottomless Tasting Plates + Mimosa Flights. Join us on the patio or in our airy dining area overlooking Vancouver’s harbour for bottomless small plates including Croque Madame, Ooey Gooey Skillet and Salmon Benedict.
Let’s Get Fizzical – this legendary brunch would not be complete without a Mimosa flight! If you can never decide, this is for you. Sample Grapefruit and elderflower, peach and star anise, Grapefruit and as well as pineapple and hibiscus.


The heated rooftop pool at Fairmont Waterfront is flanked on one side by the towering high rises of downtown Vancouver – including the picturesque Marine building – and with a beautiful view of the ocean and North Shore Mountains on the other side.
Pull up a pool lounger and order a round of Piña Coladas (virgin cocktails available as well!). We’ll deliver your halibut tostadas, cheeseburger or poolside gelato.


Ok, so not quite. But this is (hopefully) the last summer you’ll be able to enjoy Vancouver’s crown jewel without all the crowds. Enjoy a seawall cycle or stroll and take in the sweeping views of rainforest and cityscape.

We highly recommend picking up an ARC in the Park Picnic basket! Choose from a selection of chef prepared fare. If you’re a member of our ALL – Accor Live Limitless loyalty program (enroll here), you can also borrow bicycles free of charge for your outing.

PS. Be sure and stop by Stanley Park Brewing, located near the Beach Avenue entrance, for delicious local craft beer and patio fun right in the park.


Leave the yoga pants at home, dust off those high heels and enjoy a glam night out. Get started with Happy Hour in ARC, and then head down the street to Gastown’s incredible night life.

From there, check out Vancouver’s latest hidden patio – Chupito Cocktail Bar. From the people behind La Taqueria/La Mezcaleria, you’ll find authentic Mexican cuisine at this outdoor speakeasy.
From there, Guilt & Co is a great choice where you’ll find live music and hand-crafted cocktails. On your way back, the Pourhouse is a great spot to grab a late night burger!


There’s nothing quite like a hotel robe, luxurious bedding and a king sized bed all to yourself. Right now, treat yourself to a luxury girl’s getaway with our Stay Local offer! You’ll get 20% off our best available rate, plus complimentary parking and a $25 daily dining credit. Book Now.
