About Fairmont Gold

In 2019, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver unveiled its redesigned Fairmont Gold, the brand’s exclusive ‘hotel within a hotel’ experience, completing the final phase of a five-year $75M hotel renovation project. Located primarily on the ninth floor, Fairmont Gold is designed to fulfill the needs of discerning travellers by delivering elevated personalized service in a space that honours the grandeur and original architecture of the hotel while featuring modern touches and amenities. The hotel took special care to ensure that the history of the heritage building was not only preserved but highlighted throughout. 


Contemporary Design Married with Traditional Heritage

After delivering the award-winning restoration of Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s Fourteenth Floor Heritage Suites, CHIL Interior Design was commissioned to reimagine the Fairmont Gold experience showcasing a contemporary design that seamlessly blended with the hotel’s heritage. Included in the redesign project was the ninth-floor private lounge, and 50 guest rooms including three-bedroom suites featuring a living room, kitchen, and dining room which can seat up to 10 guests. The guest rooms utilize a palette of deep navy blues, heather gray, gold metals and marbles, and luxurious Axminster wool custom carpets with large-scale patterns. Special attention was paid to existing architectural elements such as the original plaster crown mouldings, woodwork, decorative built-in fireplaces and shelving. Where inconsistencies appeared, artisans were brought in to replicate and repair the old-world details. The guest rooms also feature modern amenities and multifunctional pieces that can be used for dining, conversational seating and relaxing.

“We were inspired by the hotel’s Royal Visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939, and wanted the design concept to celebrate the historical significance and prominence while selectively updating elements to their original grandeur,” says Adele Rankin, Principal and Design Lead, CHIL Interior Design. “Our goal was to honour the important events that have taken place under the hotel’s magnificent copper roof, reflecting luxury but in a contemporary fashion to give a unique personality. It’s a project that we all fell in love with.”


Boutique Experience

The Fairmont Gold experience begins with private check-in, located on the hotel’s ninth floor at the entrance to the private Fairmont Gold Lounge providing a warm relaxing atmosphere and a feeling of home for guests to unwind. The dedicated concierge team is on hand to assist in creating a truly unforgettable stay, from securing reservations at Vancouver’s best restaurants to itinerary planning and even delivering coffee with a morning wake-up call, if a guest so desires. In addition, Fairmont Gold amenities include a pillow concierge to ensure the perfect slumber, complimentary shoe shine services, and a complimentary piece of pressing. The enhanced guest room offerings feature Italian-made 300 thread count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, an iHome speaker, and more. 


Vancouver-Inspired Culinary Offerings for Lounge

Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Executive Chef David Baarschers carefully curated culinary offerings that provide guests of Fairmont Gold an opportunity to sample locally sourced and produced fare. With a selection of rotating dishes representing Vancouver’s diverse culture, and others representing the hotel’s culinary history like the signature afternoon tea scones. Served in the Fairmont Gold Lounge, the all-day culinary experience is complimentary. It includes a deluxe European breakfast, evening hors d’oeuvres, and mid-afternoon and late-night snacks, along with refreshments and an honour bar.
