Another vote for Pan Pacific, yea it cost $'s but so nice not messing with luggage and just taking the elevator down to the port. Plus we had a view of the harbor so we could see the Wonder sail in that morning.
OMG dessert, my favourite part of dinner Check out Thierry (cakes, pastries, macarons), Cartems Donuts, Beard Papas (cream puffs), Bella Gelateria for ice cream....Since we're only there about 36 hrs prior to getting on the ship we needed to be somewhere central in order to use our little time to investigate the city, primary the park, Grandville, & my eternal investigation of dessert shops!
Yep! Thierry is definitely on my list, especially since it's right behind our hotel. I'm also looking at Ganache Patisserie, as ganache is my fave!!!OMG dessert, my favourite part of dinner Check out Thierry (cakes, pastries, macarons), Cartems Donuts, Beard Papas (cream puffs), Bella Gelateria for ice cream....
We stayed at Pacific Rim and it is definitely the nicest hotel in Vancouver. We didn't stay there for our cruise. Instead, we stayed at Pan Pacific which is also a wonderful hotel. And we've stayed at Fairmont Waterfront as well which is also wonderful. For a cruise, I would stay at Pan Pacific again, but for a luxury hotel, definitely Pacific Rim.We stayed in the Fairmont Pacific Rim
Super pricey (even more expensive than the Pan Pacific).
But only a block away from the cruise terminal (and they have a complimentary shuttle service to the terminal).
And it was literally one of the nicest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in (5 star quality IMO).
In addidtion, they have a complimentary bike service (ideal for riding around the Stanley Park sea wall if you have a bit of extra time).
If you're looking for the all-out, spare no expense vacation experience, I highly recommend this hotel. On the other hand, if you're just looking for a half decent place to sleep the night before the cruise at the lowest possible price, this is probably about the last hotel you'd want to pick.
Yes, we will stay at Pan Pacific in May. Embarking was a breeze!I have a feeling that the convenience of the Pan Pacific for embarking and debarking will win us over for next year’s May cruises. Concierge offerings have been good, view from room is OK and staff has been wonderful.
