Around $75 million has been spent on the renovation work of the property. The hotel celebrated its 80th birthday back in May.
The interior design firm CHIL was asked to merge the heritage design with contemporary looks. The designing firm took inspiration from the royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939 and has tried to highlight the historical significance besides updating elements to their original grandeur.
The original plaster crown mouldings, the beautifully-designed build-in fireplaces, woodwork and shelving, has been highlighted in the hotel while a palette of navy, grey and gold has also been combined with luxurious materials including thick woollen carpets and marble.
There is also a private boutique “hotel within a hotel”. The exclusive club will welcome guests on the ninth floor for their private check-in. Guests can relax in the Fairmont Gold Lounge after that and can consult the private concierge for knowing the best places to dine and discover in Vancouver.
Besides, a bespoke menu which comprises locally sourced and the produced fare has also been created by the executive chef Colin Burselam for the guests arriving on the ninth and the fourteenth floor. Apart from dim sum and sushi, guests will be served classics like prime rib stuffed Yorkshire pudding and French onion soup.
The deluxe European breakfast and mid-afternoon and late-night snacks, along with refreshments and a bar, would be among the other attractions.
The hotel is also offering a discount of 20 per cent on bookings if it is made before December 31st, 2019 for stays until April 30, 2020.
