Vancouver’s waterfront is well-developed, with sea walls, shops, and plenty of scenic green space. There are also several hotels situated on the waterfront that boast some of the best views in the city.
The Fairmont Pacific Rim is adjacent to the new Vancouver Convention Centre and has special Harbour View suites – of course the higher, the better! Along that same strip of waterfront is the Pan Pacific Hotel with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and next door, the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel also gets its fair share of harbor scenery. The Westin Bayshore in Coal Harbour is renowned for its view of the ocean, mountains and nearby Stanley Park – in fact, all of the newly renovated rooms all have Juliette balconies to enjoy the vistas.
Also in Coal Harbour is the trendy boutique hotel, The Loden. Situated amongst the city’s (and some say the world’s) most sought-after waterfront property. The hotel masterfully mixes an upscale urban feel with elements of surrounding natural beauty – namely Stanley Park, the harbor and the North Shore mountains.
