The hotel is accessible by escalator or elevator located adjacent to US check-in kiosks. This would be our 4th visit. Check in was prompt and courteous. Did not request it but received a complimentary upgrade to a king bed suite. Rooms are nicely appointed and come with free wi-fi only for Fairmont Rewards members. Flat screen TV's, comfortable seating with... More

We usually stay here at the YVR Fairmont when we have an early flight out the next morning. We enjoyed our stay very much as the beds were very comfortable and almost everything in the room is controlled electronically by a panel. We were put on the 11th floor facing South, the Canada line, Richmond, and unfortunately the roof of... More

If you are flying out of YVR, this is the only place to stay. Sure it might cost a little more than the hotels in Richmond, but the convenance of this hotel is well worth the cost especially if you have an early morning flight. Great comfortable bed and a awesome view of the runway.

We staggered into the hotel after a long flight from the UK, and the lovely at the front desk told us our agent had booked the room in November rather than December so they weren't expecting us. However, they found us a room and honoured the voucher we had. Now, I've stayed at a lot of five star hotels, I've... More

As we live only an hour by car east of the airport we usually cajole a friend or family member to drop us off on the day of our flight. This time, however, we decided to book a room and avoid the stress of traffic and parking etc. The plan is to stroll from our hotel room tomorrow feeling refreshed... More

I have stayed at the Fairmont on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The rooms are immaculate and elegant. Staff is professional and excel in customer service. Love the Gold Rooms option. Beds are super comfy. Tub and rainfall shower are to die for. Location is perfect when you can't get same day flights. Very happy that they offer... More

everything about our stay was great from the rooms to the bell service. no question about the convenience since it is right beside departures and never a need to go outside the airport. 2 queen beds and a great room put this hotel top on my list for Vancouver.

I don't often stay in a hotel in my own city, but when we have early morning departures at YVR, this starts the vacation a day early. Rather than getting a cab on a cold dark morning we wake up to a warm coffee and a short walk to check in for our flight. The service is excellent and the... More

After recommending this property highly to business colleagues and friends and using it when able over many years a recent Saturday night stay was disappointing and entirely "average". Hotel showing its age, service and food in restaurant disappointing, a shame for Fairmont to let this wonderful asset slip....
