I recently had the pleasure of spending a couple of nights in the Fairmont at the Vancouver Airport. The service was excellent, the meals were delicious. The view from my room was fabulous, I could see the international flights come and go through my huge window I watched TV in a sunken tub as I sipped on a hot cup of tea. After my bath I slipped on the complimentary robe and read my novel in bed. The bed was ENORMOUS and oh so comfortable, the rooms were pristine. Whenever planning an international trip I will definitely utilize the Fairmont. In the morning you can order a “to go” breakfast so you aren't starving on your flight. Upon check out you are a couple minute walk to the international boarding area.
