Few places marry modern technology with eco-chic luxury like Fairmont Pacific Rim, which opened in 2010 just shy of the beginning of the Vancouver Winter Olympics. You’ll find techie advancements everywhere you look — ORU restaurant offers its wine list on an iPad, and you can check in to your guest room via the Fairmont app if you so desire. The design of the hotel (and its ethos) is very green, with stylish light boxes in every room that feature soothing forest scenes and a policy to source local, organic food whenever possible. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be excessively pampered here — the Willow Stream Spa and rooftop pool deck easily take care of that, as do the plentiful dining options (think raw bar in your room and fresh sushi made on site).
