Canada is home to some of the world’s most legendary hotels from coast to coast, but few can boast an opening by the Queen some 84 years ago and still be as majestic to this day as the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is located in the heart of British Columbia’s largest city and thanks to its stunning guestrooms, popular restaurants and bars and fantastic shopping on offer, it makes for a brilliant stay every time.

To find out what makes the property so legendary, Wayfarer Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Fairmont Hotel Vancouver General Manager, Adam Laker, in British Columbia recently.
