Can not comment on price as we were put up here by air Canada when one of our flights was delayed. The hotel was beautiful and the food was amazing! The room was clean and all of the staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay here again!

Okay, picture this, you get a wakeup call, you tumble out of the most exquisitely comfy bed in a spacious room with views of the mountains, truly first class, modern, clean, amenity rich, flat screen tv that you can swivel to watch from the bathtub, also spacious, and go downstairs to the main terminal to your waiting check-in luggage the hotel has stowed for you overnight, put it on a nearby cart and walk across the hall to the airlines counter where you check your baggage. I wish every airport had one. You can return your rental car at the airport there as well, usually saving an additional day's rate for that last overnight. I think I would also be inclined to stay there overnight upon arrival...Great gym, incredible menu with vegan, gluten free, spa-cuisine alternatives. Also, I am super allergic to dust and chemicals. They have rooms available on request that are hypo-allergenic, and they are so wonderful and clean. This hotel is a total find!

I love the Fairmont Airport Hotel, it is such a treat when I am able to stay. This was my 3rd visit and it didn't disappoint. Mr Keller (I believe) the manager on duty checked me in and it was clear that he enjoys his job and loves the hotel. He made me feel that my arrival was of the utmost importance. As a woman travelling alone his warm welcome was comforting and made me feel at home. I took full advantage of the amazing bath tub and was well rested for my flight. Thank you, I am looking forward to my next stay.

Thanks to a Westjet delay we spent one night at the Fairmont Hotel. We have stayed at its sister hotel in downtown Vancouver and this hotel is definitely up to the same standard - its great. Check in was fast and easy, room service only took 20 minutes and the food was delicious. The quality of the beddings, linens, amenities and cutlery is top class. The beds are super comfortable and there is enough sound proofing in the rooms for a good night's sleep. The water is hot and the shower's water pressure is perfect. The only thing that let the hotel down was its cheap, crappy and deafening hair dryer. It took forever to blow dry my hair - just horrible! You'd be better off taking your own hairdryer! The gym is well equipped and spacious, and the meeting rooms are good too. If you have an early morning flight then its the perfect hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

YVR Fairmont hotel main dining room - dinner

My husband and I have dined in this airport dining room on several occasions the night before our flights. We LOVE dining here! The food has always been superb and the service from all of the bar and dining room staff excellent.

Tonight our server in the dining room was Kirsten M. She is a top notch example of what fine table service is all about. Kirsten is food knowledgeable, efficient and very personable.

Fairmont at YVR is a place to dine ... Even if you don't have a plane to catch.

Tonight I enjoyed the duck entrée and my husband had the seafood chowder ( which is incredible) and the beef tenderloin. He rated the quality of his meal as "excellent."

Even though the traditional banana split is not on the menu, one arrived on our table.

We will return.

Room Tip: We stay here when we are catching our early morning flights. The staff are friendly and helpful. T...

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!
