Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

This is the top of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, which is located at the corner of West Georgia Street and Burrard Street. It was completed in 1939. Like the other hotels that used to be part of the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific railway groups, it exhibits old world gentility and an architectural style reminiscent of the French chateaux. It's almost 120 metres high and stands out among the more modern skyscrapers that surround it. At night, the roof is illuminated to create an appealing effect.


  1. Really enjoy all the Vancouver posts.

  2. Thanks, Don. I'm enjoying your sketches, too. Really like the construction vehicle and the cars.

    I'm still learning, and hope to get out more and post some more drawings soon.
