Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver, Canada


The ASOPRS room block at the Fairmont Waterfront is SOLD OUT. You can still make a reservation at the Fairmont Waterfront until they sell out completely, but it will be at the prevailing rate, which will be higher than the group rate. 

The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (.4 miles/a 10 minute walk from the Fairmont Waterfront) is offering a special rate of $279 CAD/night + taxes and fees over our meeting dates. Click here to reserve a room at your earliest convenience. Please note that the hotel requires a one night, non-refundable deposit to secure your reservation.  These overflow rooms are first-come first-served and the rate could be higher, based on the hotel's availability.

June is a very popular month for tourism in Vancouver. We recommend that you make a reservation at your earliest convenience.  Visit the Tourism Vancouver site for a complete list of hotels in the central business district. We also encourage you to explore VRBO.com and airbnb.com for rental-from-owner options in the central business district.

ASOPRS does not undertake to verify the claims of, or assess the products or services offered by, any company presenting during ASOPRS’ meetings, nor does ASOPRS’ receipt of a fee from, and provision of space to, such companies constitute an endorsement or recommendation by ASOPRS. Attendees must make their own independent judgments as to the advisability of entering into a business transaction.
