The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (web site, 900 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, 604-684-3131) is one of downtown Vancouver’s most notable landmarks, for its stunning old-world architecture set amidst the more modern towers of downtown Vancouver’s business and shopping districts.

Like the city that surrounds it, [the Hotel] is rich in history, resplendent in natural beauty, vibrant and cosmopolitan.

The Hotel has several restaurants, one of which, Griffin’s, serves a wonderful brunch/lunch buffet. Pictured below is a night-time view of one of the side entrances to the hotel.
