This hotel was by far the best airport hotel I have already stayed at! The hotel is very charming and chic! We used the hot tub and pool since we arrived here after a skiing day in Whistler. The pool was great and it was quite an experience going to the pool inside an airport!! The rose room amenities were delicious, the room itself was very spacious, modern and still had the earthly wooden tones present at other fairmont hotels! There was a telescope in our room, which our daughters found very fun as they used it to look inside the planes taxing in front of our huge window! We didn't hear any airplane sounds and the staff were great! We had a lovely dinner at their restaurant, our waitress was super, the food was tasty, delicious and satisfying! We were able to check in our luggage (international flights require that you check in luggage 3 hours prior to departure) and go back and relax in our room!

We have stayed here on a few occasions when our flights times have been very early the next day. We have stayed in both a Fairmont and Deluxe room.

The rooms have lovely, modern decor, comfy beds and great bathrooms. We particularly like the floor to celling windows and watching the airport comings and goings, the planes landing and looking out to sea towards the Gulf Islands with the spotting scope provided.

The buffet breakfast is also good quality; best place for breakfast in the airport in our opinion.

Just a great way to start off a long day's travelling for business or pleasure.

We have stayed here several times now before and after a cruise holiday while waiting for day time pick up for the ferries to get back to Vancouver Island. It is a bit on the higher price end, but worth every penny. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the beds are the most comfortable that we have slept on away from home. The view of Vancouver is lovely and you could take the sky train into down town if you want.

Room Tip: If price is not a issue then pay for the Gold. All the rooms are view rooms

We booked a night at the Fiarmont Vancouver Airport on our way home from Hawaii. We arrived rather late and had an early morning flight home. It was so convenient to have access to such a luxurious hotel right at the airport. No need to rave to old outdoors. We were booked on the Gold floor which offered a breakfasting the lounge that rivals the best restaurants - smoked salmon, eggs, fresh fruit. Exquisite. I wish we had an excuse to stay longer. The room was total luxury, with all there'll sand whistles. The bathroom nicer than home.
If you want to pamper yourself between connecting flights this is the place.

I was disappointed that the room was so pricey but was willing to pay for the convenience. The big shock was that I had to pay extra to use the internet! Also expensive was the dessert and coffee for two in the restaurant which came to over $40. The room itself was average, comfortable and quiet.

My other booked me a room here and was kind enough to take me to this hotel for our layover
was crazy overpriced, and lacked service. I have now stayed at another fairmont and it was much more accpetable. I will have to stay here again...but really sad about the large pricetag that will come with the stay.

I was here in January 2012 for business for 2 nights with a client. The first night I had an amazing meal in the hotel dinning room.

As we needed to conduct meetings at the hotel, the front desk recommended paying the $100 per day to use the Gold Lounge which has a large boardroom and provides free breakfast and canapes.

I have traveled extensively for business and never experienced the high level of service I received in the Gold Lounge from Jarret and his staff. Food in the Gold Lounge was also outstanding.

I will certainly book all further stays in Vancouver at this Fairmont property.
