Have stayed at least 10 separate times - we always stay the night before leaving on a family vacation. Always fantastic service, convenience to the airline check in counters and a luxury hotel experience.

I had just returned from an International vacation (10 hr flight), had reserved a room here so I could relax quickly upon arrival. It was seamless from when I arrived to when I left ! I was checked in to my room quickly, bags were taken while I was at front desk. The room was lovely and I did watch... More

We stayed one night for another connecting flight. It is a typical world class hotel, I'm satisfied with all the assistance and information I got. One thing impressed me is the location. Since I just finished a long flight (included 2 transit flight), and had another flight to NWT in the next morning. The hotel is just perfect to me... More

This was the first time we stayed as Fairmont Gold. The checkin is on their gold floor 14 which was excellent. Staff amazed us at the significant amenities over... More

I love to stay at the Fairmont at the airport after a long day of travel. It's quick, easy and didn't have to go outside. The beds are very comfortable and we enjoyed the huge bathroom and clean room. Believe it or not it's also very quiet considering it's at an airport.

The Fairmont Empress was the gateway and termination point for our family vacation and it helped on both sides. The rooms were comfortable and inviting and it was fantastic to take a short walk to start our adventure.

I had a short overnight stopover traveling between northern BC and Vancouver island through YVR. Not wanting to deal with booking a rental car and travel to Richmond or Vancouver area hotels I opted to stay at the Fairmont. It is the only hotel option right at YVR. My check-in date was apparently booked for a date before my arrival,... More

Very good surprise !!! From the warm lobby to the rooms facing the airplanes. Nice smell, fire places, perfect breakfast very good spa with sauna, jacuzzi & swimming pool overlooking the airlines checking counters. I went almost directly from the spa to the gates. This hotel because of its unique location provides a very special experience.
