we stayed 1 night at the Fairmont Airport Vancouver as part of our Holland America Cruise tour of Alaska and was quite impressed with the atmosphere and excellent service received from the Fairmont staff. I love watching planes so I thought I was in heaven. Reminded me of the Airport films of yesterdays past and hope we did not have such experiences during our stay.

The BEST salmon I have had.

Prepared with mushrooms, and with NO sugar, (direct or indirect).

AMAZING......

Ask Chef Cliff to prepare it for YOU.

Tell HIM you saw it here and wish to have the same !!!

I am diabetic and need special foods as per MY heart doctor.

Chef Cliff of Fairmont YVR hotel at Vancouver international airport ROCKS my world.

He made a dish, absent of any sugar and DELICIOUS.

I am so thankful, I will return...

I stayed here after a quick run into Vancouver, a trip up the valley, and the need to fund a hotel to catch a 6 am fight the next morning! The staff was wonderful and the room superb. The view was spectacular, and considering you are right in the airport, the rooms were very quiet! I did not use a meal, room service or the gym. Next time for sure!

I have stayed in many hotels, and tend to compare them all with the Fairmont at Vancouver International airport. Super convenient if you are travelling anywhere. Very spacious rooms tastefully appointed. As expected with a hotel of this class extremely clean. The service is very good, people are friendly. Being very interested in aviation I especially enjoyed the panoramic views over the airport from our room. The unexpected bonus was the fact that one doesn't hear any of the associated noise, although nice to my ears during daytime, is not welcome during sleeping hours. All in all one of my favourite places in the world to stay.

We stayed overnight in Vancouver and with not that much time, we decide to stay at the airport. This hotel is so easy to get to from the airport and so convientent to get around to other parts of Vancouver is hard to leave after one day. We stayed on the Gold Floor, the conceirge was fabulous, the morsels were great and we really loved the view. The room was gorgeous, I wished I had the time to lounge in the huge tub while watching the planes land. The amenities were great in room, even bionocular so we could watch the planes come and go! The kids loved it, and the were treated wonderfully by the staff. All round great part of our trip. If I have to stay longer in Vancouver I'll stay here!

If you love planes like me (and spend more time on a plane than at home) you will LOVE this hotel. My room had floor to ceiling window looking out over the runway and gates with the mountains in the back ground, loved it. The room is extremely well appointed the best i had in Canada on this trip, granted prices are higher but worth the extra dollars. There were lovely attentive staff everywhere in all departments and service was prompt and courteous and friendly. Breakfast was always well done, a lunch snack i had was very tasty and the entire hotel is clean, well set up and comfortable. I had super help from front desk trying to get something from air crew for a presentation i had to give and the lady was so sweet to ask them all on my behalf. in the rooms i love the layout of the bathrooms and the room was nice and warm. Food and beverage were not on the cheap side but i guess in keeping with the location, service and quality but don't expect low pricing for this level. The most impressive thing is we were at an event which oddly enough was in the departure area of the airport itself, something i never saw before. We were about 150 and in a sectioned off area below the hotel on the airport halls. The food served to the group was extremely impressive and ranks among the best quality large scale catering food i have had just about anywhere. I've never had a goats cheese cheesecake before but this was wonderful. I think if i was on business anywhere in the city i would be happy to suffer a longer ride into town and stay at this hotel again. ticked all my boxes just be prepared to pay a little more. Stayed two nights when we could have stayed one night in Victoria and avoided a lot of travel but happy to have been here two nights and put up with a little ferry ride (which was fabulous) over to Victoria. Only negative thing is that the bar closed at midnight so coming back late from an event we only had time to talk to our coilleagues for half an hour but i believe this is due to civil aviation restrictions and nothing the hotel can do about it. Second night we had a private bar for our group and this did not close at midnight so not sure how the licensing works in this respect. The lady on our private bar was very efficient and friendly.

Room Tip: I think every room has a view of the airport just check before getting your room in case you want to...

If you have an early morning flight you should stay here the evening before. The staff are gracious and what you would expect from a world class property. The restaurant is excellent and they provide special diet options which is impressive.
I look forward to staying here again.
