Decor is chic and trendy, love the lighting and ambiance. Make reservations and request a table buy the windows for plane viewing. Fairmont service and cuisine top notch. We also enjoyed the BC featured Okanagan wine. Menu reflects the many cultures and spices around the globe, so is quite varied. We had Canadian Angus tenderloin and Marrocan lamb. Lovely dinner...

Everything about our 2 stays here are amazing. The rooms are big,clean and 5 star. The food and service was above and beyond. So quiet. No way you can tell you are at an airport. Awesome!!! Can't wait to go back

Usually stay at hotel before flying home. This time we decided to have dinner at the GLobe@YVR. Great dinner! Even though it is a fine dining restaurant the atmosphere was casual and easy going. Service was excellent. Had the 24 Hour Braised Short Ribs - best I've had in ages. My husband had the Fruit De Mer Risotto. He loved... More

We booked reservations for the Afternoon tea. We were seated promptly and had a nice table by the window where we could watch the planes take off. We were told we couldn't come 30 minutes earlier because they were booked but there were very few customers in the restaurant when we arrived. It took awhile to get served, but someone... More

We spent the night at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport after departing our cruise ship so we decided to do dinner at the Globe@YVR. At first, we didn't know if we would be able to dine there, as we didn't want to don a dress and suit for dinner. To our surprise, the dress code is casual, yet nice and the... More

Airport hotel but well above many city dining spots...food and service was excellent. Canadian wine prices are high but good quality.

Just couldn't do the food court or even one of the sit down restaurants for dinner at YVR, they really are bad, especially Hanami (before security International terminal). The Globe is beautiful, amazing view of the North Shore mountains, nice decor and atmosphere (some people find it cold, but I think it's fine). The menu is quite limited, but everything... More

The food was amazing & the service was incredible...very intentive but not in the way of us enjoying a romantic evening! We... More

I usually give Globe one more star but this time even thought he food and service are excellent and the ambiance is perfect for preflight I was sad to see the Lifestyles menu is gone. There were innovative from organic, to vegan to raw that tempted every palate. Now even though the food is excellent is is more mainstream and... More

Going for high tea is my very favorite thing to do...and I go often. I was excited to go to the Fairmont Airport for the first time a week ago. First, the ambience...just a cookie cutter hotel dining room...nothing warm or intimate about it for spending a couple of hours chatting with a friend over a cup of T. Second,... More
