Lovely rooms, very quiet, can barely hear a jet taking off even though watching on the runway, with the supplied binoculars. Super comfortable beds Good upscale restaurant and bar,....expensive but not untypical of good hotels...a little .cheaper than many big city hotels in other countries. Cheap eats in the terminal down the stairs and straight ahead through the check in... More

After a long, so very long, trip back to Canada, exhausted even more so with YVR’s determination to make it as long as possible to exit the airport, we trundled up and over to the Fairmont located in situ. Following a quick check-in we headed up to our adjoining rooms and watched our kid’s faces light up when they saw... More

I have stayed in the Fairmont Vancouver airport several times since it opened on my many visits to Vancouver. It has consistently been the best airport hotel in the world, in my opinion. Just a short walk from international arrivals, right inside the airport, it was a welcome sight after my flight from the UK. I had a 2 Queen... More

The room and view was beautiful, however, there was nothing complimentary in the room. A bottle of water for 6.50 seriously??! I would expect more out of a hotel that is that pricey for room and I got a good deal on it. I would not stay there again for the prices they ask.

Check in easy & the hotel is very convenient when we had to catch a 7am flight. We walked downstairs and were in the airport which flying to the United states, declaring and going through customs took 50 minutes to complete. The SPA was the best massage to date and the food in the restaurant was excellent compared to some... More

The only downside of our entire stay was that it was just for one night! We booked a gold level room at the airport as we knew that travelling in First on BA would mean a small over indulgence with the champagne during the flight and we wouldn't be able to pick up a car on arrival - we were...

We have stayed at this hotel twice. Once on the 28 of October and then the 9th of November. The pluses for this hotel, a nice walk from either internation or US flights, little bit more of a walk, maybe 10 minutes from the Canadian departures, so all in all great. No weather to contend with, just pull your luggage... More

I arrived in the Vancouver airport at 11:30 a.m. after a 13 hour flight from Changsha, China, and a 3 hour layover in the Beijing airport. My flight was delayed out of Beijing so that I missed my connecting flight home to Edmonton, meaning an 11 hour layover in the Vancouver airport. Already exhausted, I didn't know how I was... More
