Beautiful hotel, amazing staff. The location worked as my meeting was in the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. I had a very comfortable sleep as the bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Hotel in excellent location, making it easily accessible from international flights. Staff was cheerful, helpful and engaging. Rooms were well designed and comfortable. Despite overlooking the runway, the rooms were absolutely quiet. Fantastic, well-equipped fitness center, including pool and whirlpool. Food at the airport bar was fair and like other Fairmont properties Wifi could be improved.

Although I live near YVR, I stayed here recently as I had an early morning flight on my way to Toronto then Lima. I searched Hotels.com and they had a great offer for the one night at the Fairmont. I had a 12th floor room looking north over several plane gates and towards Vancouver and the mountains. Absolutely no aircraft... More

Best airport hotel I've ever seen ! Really well appointed & smack bang above the terminal. Perfect for transiting. Beautiful bathrooms, robes, massive king bed....its all here on your doorstep ! Views overlooking tarmac which is always entertaining.

My night at The Fairmont YVR resulted from a travel day that started at 3:30am in Victoria and ended in a 6pm flight cancellation after a day of United Airlines delay after delay. But this the Fairmont YVR was an oasis that made all of the events of the day acceptable. Everything about this hotel is excellent. A fantastic room,... More

maybe some people like a pitch black room because they are travelling and need the darkness. the room absoloutely absorbed light. every surface and material is a rich dark stone or wood. The lounge and dining room is lovely looking out onto the airport. the hotel is a trek through the terminal. the staff are friendly, well trained an helpful.... More

My husband and I were put up in this hotel by Air China after a delayed flight. It was convenient for catching a flight the next day. Although the cost was covered I would stay there again because of cleanliness and most of all the service. The staff accommodated food requests and prepared a meal for our diabetic friend. One...

After arriving on a late night flight, Having the Fairmont situated at the Vancouver airport is the first PLUS. The service as always is spectacular--thanks to Tiffany Tang and Judy Chin (not exactly sure of the last name ) for the upgrade to a suite--much appreciated. No chance to partake of food and drink--receiving two ice cold bottles of water... More

We had a very late flight from NY to Vancouver with my two children so we wanted a place to crash for the night that was close to the airport. I was very happy to find the Fairmont was located in the airport proper (we cleared customs and walked through the airport to the hotel - never leaving the building).... More
