The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is an iconic Vancouver landmark that's been around for ages. It's hard not to miss.

If you're looking to splurge on a romantic weekend away, book one of the suites for a spacious stay. When it comes to eating, you could go the traditional route of an a la carte meal. But, if you really want to impress, switch gears and treat yourselves to afternoon tea in the private dining room of Notch8.
