This hotel was built in 1999 and has had no remodeling since. This is most noticeable in the hotel rooms. The bathrooms are looking a little dated and the shower head in our room leaked all over the place. The mattress although comfy has seen better days. This mattress sloped to the middle so you always felt like you were... More

This is luxury within the city but affordable unlike most downtown overpriced hotels. Perfect for layovers and staying closer to downtown with affordable price and excellent accommodation. Not to forget the runway view.

We had an extended layover at YVR so we rented a room at the Fairmont for six hours. What a good idea. Our flight left Portland in the early AM so we slept a little late knowing we could shower at the Fairmont. We had a nice lunch and boarded our early evening flight to London refreshed.

This hotel is worth 5 stars just because of the location and the $$$ prices of the food and services. The pool is very small and poor, with a beautifull and relaxing view...on the airport check-ins. Another big thing is that they don't provide free wifi... A 5 stars hotel in 2014 that offers you the service for almost 15... More

Perfect spot for a layover stay with an entrance right in the departures hall of the Airport. Great staff, very helpful and trained to anticipate travellers' needs. Very comfortable rooms. I highly recommend this hotel.

Staff were outstanding. I was upgraded to a room overlooking the airport operations and the mountains which was mesmerizing. They made me feel special all the way through by addressing me by name. A touch of class.

We have stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel many times since it opened fifteen years ago. Each time the staff, bed comfort, food has been exceptional! As we live on Vancouver Island, we always leave a day early just in cases of fog or snow delays. It completely takes the stress out of travel...actually, that is an excuse just... More

When I was at the end of my rope, this hotel took me in, welcomed my dog and gave me 12 hours of sanctuary when I needed it most. I'd been in hospital for exhaustion & dehydration, my airline was useless and this hotel really came through for me.

I stay at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport each October because of the convenience to the Alaska Gates due to early flights. The rooms are clean and have all one could want for a one night stay. Most staff are friendly and helpful. Wake calls are on time and the porter quickly arrives to help with luggage. The staff is cheerful... More
