“Great stay for an Early Morning Flight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Well its a beautiful hotel that's for sure! Expensive, but worth the price if location and quality are important to you. We had an early flight out to the states from Vancouver, and the check in for our flight was right below the hotel. Made the morning much smoother and more relaxed! Rooms are very nice, I wish we had more time to spend at the hotel!

By far the Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the BEST airport hotel I have ever been in! The bathrooms are to die for - and we come back each year after a fishing trip to Vancouver Island. They have a hugh walkin freezer to store your fish so you don't have to worry about storing them elsewhere. But most of all it is the service of this hotel and of course the location! Personal tip: splurge on for the CONCIERGE FLOOR! And when you are ready to flyout--just go downstairs, it doesn't get easier than that!

Room Tip: Choose the concierge floor for a real treat!

Great place to watch the planes, very relaxed airport hotel, with something a little special. Walk to terminal, as hotel is connected to airport, couldn't get any closer!
Great pool and gym, open to children as well

I love this hotel mainly b/c it's a great way to start a vacation. In order to catch an early flight, we would have to leave our house at 3 am! To avoid that and the early morning traffic, we book an overnight at the Fairmont Airport. The beds are great, the linens are beautiful, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are sparkling! The food is excellent, Wifi is quick and you have a wide selection of movies available to rent. The location is very convenient ... Just minutes away from all the check in counters. The staff is always friendly and efficient. This hotel is an elegant way to begin your holiday!

Definitely recommend this hotel. The customer service experience was one of the best I have encountered anywhere. Hotel was clean, facilities excellent, however the room was very cold, even with AC turned off.
The bar was pricey, but again service and meal were excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet, and come with views of either North Van and mountains, or Gulf Islands

We flew in from Alaska and knew that we wouldn't land until 7.30ish so didn't want to make the long ride into Vancouver for just one night, so we booked into the Fairmont. Glad we did as it was the final night of luxury after a long trip before flying back to reality the next day. Huge room, properly air conditioned with a (noiseless) view of the planes landing and the sunset. Large comfortable bed and all mod cons in the bathroom. The staff were exceptional - we were greeted at the escalator by a member of staff, checked in swiftly and were taken to our room by a really pleasant bell hop - so different from the usual silent ones just waiting for a tip, As it was latish we went straight to the dining room where we had an excellent dinner. The next monring we had hours to our flight to London and helpful bellman once again pointed out the transit train which got us into downtown Vancouver in 25 minutes, so we were able to spend most of the day there, getting a shuttle to Grouse Mountain. On our return, our luggage was waiitng by the escalator, already on a cart, and it took minutes to walk to airport check in. Would definitely recommed it for the last night of the holiday!
