I thoroughly enjoyed a night's stay at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport ahead of an early morning departure. The property is ideally situated directly within the airport terminal, just two escalators above the departure hall. Very easy access from the SkyTrain, just across the street, too. I did pop into the city during the evening, and whilst convenient the SkyTrain does take a while (about half an hour) so I don't think you'd want to stay here for long commuting into town, but then that's clearly not how the hotel market's itself.
The room was lovely - very spacious. Jetted bath tub was a nice feature. As a bit of an aviation geek, I'd booked the "Deluxe King View" room, offering great views over the landing runways and terminal, and it didn't disappoint. Provided in the room was a pair of binoculars, on a tripod. Great fun!
I didn't sample the restaurant, which looked a little over-priced for my liking, but instead enjoyed a lovely meal in the bar downstairs in the terminal.
I think this hotel sets a whole different benchmark for airport hotels, and I very much hope to return one day.
