We had a wonderful cruise on the Volendam and then planned 2 days in Vancouver. Due to the attacks on the USA, we were in Vancouver longer than anticipated. The Fairmont Waterfront Centre Hotel was fabulous. They extended our reservations as long as necessary at a reduced price. They helped us thru the frustrations of not knowing when we could leave.We had a large corner room with a large window looking out on Canada Place and the other large window looking out at the city. Prior to the cruise we stayed at the Fairmonth Empress in Victoria. We found the staff at the Waterfront Centre to be much more friendly!! I highly recommend this hotel.
