How did you transport your bags from Pacific Rim to Canada Place? How is the cost compared to Pan Pacific? About the same?????
I had my mom and Service dog in tow (plus luggage from being gone for over 3 weeks), so we took a cab from Canada Place to Pacific Rim after our cruise. Someone mentioned that there is an underground tunnel but I never looked for it.
We had a free night at a Fairmont hotel and the 2nd night was $400 so it worked out to be $200 per night for us. I think the Renaissance was $250 a night when I priced it out, I don't remember the cost of Pan Pacific (probably in the $3xx range). I actually wanted the Fairmont Waterfront but couldn't get that hotel. Our room was amazing at Pacific Rim and we had a great view of the water and where the Olympic Cauldron which looked great at night. Having stayed at previous Fairmonts, this was definitely the best of the ones I have stayed at.
I stayed at Pan Pacific before the Olympics and it was "pretty tired". I understand that is no longer the case and it is in great condition.
The Pacific Rim seemed to be full of Vancouver Convention people. It doesn't seem to attract the cruisers. I loved this hotel and my other all time favorite is Pan Pacific Village Center in Whistler. Funny - 2 of my favorite hotels are in Canada. The room is probably the nicest I stayed at at Pacific Rim (very modern and large) and the view was great but I didn't take advantage of the rest of the hotel's amenities so I can't speak for that.
