Vancouver’s best luxury hotel
I give a detailed tour of one of the rooms later in this post. First some more impressions of the magnificent lobby. The Fairmont Pacific Rim has a thriving art program. The hotel owns a growing international art collection. Priority has been placed though on showcasing the best of local Vancouver artists. The hotel encourages guests to discover its art. A self-guided podcast, over the course of 35 minutes, explores the property’s public art. This is the curator’s table, located on the hotel’s 2nd floor. The custom made round table set with Versace plates makes a dramatic impression. The Curator’s Table seats 8 people & overlooks the lobby. It’s the perfect setting for an evening dedicated to the art of conversation, fueled by great food.
