“My favourite airport hotel anywhere!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

I've stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel many times over the past ten years and I have to say its my favourite airport anywhere! My recent stay with my wife only cemented this belief.

The staff are always excellent and have been very well trained. As a President's Club member they always know my requirements and aim to please. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped and if you're an airplane watcher they offer great views of the Vancouver Airport. The lounge and restaurant is first class and the fitness club has some new machines and is in a great location overlooking the transborder check in area.

I love being able to walk off a flight, check in and be in my room no longer than 15 minutes after deplaning. If you're passing through Vancouver the Fairmont is a great place to spend a night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room "ramp side" for a great view of the transborder and international departure...

After stumbling off a nine hour flight from London, and a very long day we couldn't bear the though of having to catch the bus and ferry to get home to Victoria we knew months ago we wanted to stay at this wonderful hotel, and it was so worth it. You pretty much know your going to have a great experience with Fairmont Hotels and this one does not disappoint. The room was huge, with the most comfortable bed we have ever been in, including the pillows and linens. Bathroom was big beyond belief for a hotel and was equally as cool to see planes coming and going without hearing much of them. We also ate and enjoyed some drinks downstairs in the very stylish lounge and enjoyed the bartenders service very much. Overall you must stay here if not for the convenience, then for the sheer joy of it all!

Room Tip: Every room must be nice, so just book!

Thank you kindly for pointing out the convenience of staying at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport. It is true, when you land from such a long flight it is a treat to be able to rest your mind at a property which is situated directly within the Vancouver International Airport. We hope you had a lovely time in Victoria, please inform us of any future trips you plan on taking to British Columbia, as we would love assist with any future bookings.

My wife and I stayed here for the last 2 nights of our holiday in Canada.
I am in the Presidents Club, and booked a room on the Gold Floor.
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were treated like royalty. The service in this hotel is the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. Nothing was too much.
The room was superb. Food and drink available in the private Gold Lounge, food was excellent.
This hotel must rank as one of the best in the world.
Yes, it is expensive, but for the quality and service you receive it is very reasonable. You pay for what you get, and what you get is of the highest standard anywhere.

Room Tip: Gold Floor, and join the Presidents Club!

Stayed here after a flight from london and it was great. The spa has three pools that are open 6am to 11pm, so kids can jump in and refresh straight after landing. Quiet rooms, attentive staff. Does what it says on the tin.

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.
