Easy to find after landing from a domestic flight. Very convenient to US departures. Check in with bellman was fast and friendly at the bottom of the escalator. Rooms were clean but showing wear and tear and need refreshing. Bar had nice micro brewery pints on tap.

This hotel suffers from having a captive market. The good: the Fairmont is your only choice if you have an early flight and want the convenience of having the check-in counters under the same roof. The standard rooms are comfortable, quiet and reasonably well appointed and the staff were polite and competent. The front desk was efficient and painless although... More

Its not like most airport hotels. Access is quick, help at hand, and nice rooms. On the gold floor breakfast, nibbles later and wifi are included which makes it worth looking at. we stayed 3 nights, ate in the lounge /bar area and enjoyed this. Its seamlessly effortless, from reception to parking, all without fuss. We travel to vancouver regularly,... More

Such a great place to stay and relax before you head of on a trip. Relaxing and stunning. We loved the view from the gold floor and the yummy breakfast. Easy transition from room to international terminal.

We got a great sale on the room and opted for the gold upgrade. Totally not worth it. Save your money on the upgrade and go out for dinner, the free drink and appetizer is only offered until 7 pm our flight arrived at 7:15, then the gold lounge breakfast was terrible. The meat was cold, eggs were soggy, coffee... More

Relax and enjoy the best spot for your Airport stay. Spectacular service, all the amenities of the hotel and airport, check in, in your pyjamas if you like, then pop back to the hotel until you need to go through security. VERY quiet rooms, and the staff offer superb service.
