Fairmont Pacific Rim

Vancouver, B.C.

The Fairmont's attention to detail is in a class of its own, even for a luxury hotel. You'll spend the first 15 minutes in your room wondering, "How did they know I liked this song? Where did they get this tea? Wait, the bathroom mirror is also a television?" It doesn't stop there. There's the "outrageous, freakishly automated" fitness room with water, towels, and touch-pad controls at every station. The "graceful, proficient" staff who always greet you by name. A concierge who doesn't just give you directions but hands you a map with local attractions handwritten in. Even with an ideal downtown location, you'll find yourself aching for your room. $282 U.S./$353 U.S.; 377 rooms & suites;
