Had a stop over in Vancouver and stayed here. Excellent location right in YVR at the far end of the international terminal. Quick simple check in. Nice large spacious room. No noise at all from runways right outside. Even had airplane cookies in room on arrival. Kuerig coffee maker in room. Had time to use fitness centre. Lots of cardio equipment all with their own large TV. Only negative was additional cost for WiFi. $16 I think it was. For the price of staying here disappointed in the additional charge for WiFi. Can't beat waking up and walking out of the lobby right into the airport. No taxi or shuttle to deal with. Excellent hotel, will stay again.

Dear Doug_19

Thank you for your lovely Trip Advisor review on The Fairmont Vancouver Airport. We are delighted to hear that you were able to make great use of our gym facilities.

The rant: we arrived around 7:00PM on a Saturday night after a flight. There was no assistance at the entrance to the hotel. After check-in, we were heading out for dinner in downtown Vancouver. When we came down, there was still no assistance at the front entrance. We were hoping to catch a cab. We ended up walking back to the other end of the airport to get one.
There were no robes in the room.

The rave: As always, sleeping at the Fairmont is like sleeping on a cloud! The tub is enormous and the rooms are well appointed.

We also came back to the Fairmont on our return trip, which was our wedding annivesary. We stayed on the Gold floor this time and it was outstanding. Private concierge, lounge and the rooms are more romantic. Upon arrival to our room, we were delighted to find chocolate covered strawberries and a card congratulating us on our anniversary. The bed, bedding and pillows allow you to have the best sleep of your life. In the morning, we went to the lounge where a continental breakfast was set up. There were hot and cold choices and plenty of healthy options as well as treats.

Given the opportunity, the Fairmont YVR is my go to hotel when connecting from Whitehorse to anywhere else in the world.

Room Tip: We had stayed in almost every room available. When it comes down to it, if all you need is a good s...

Whenever I have to overnight for a flight out of Vancouver, this is the place I stay. At the end of the international departures concourse, it makes arrival at the departures area a quick and easy walk, no taxi or shuttle. The rooms are exceedingly comfortable, beds are lovely and a great soaker tub if you have time. Room service and restaurant food is excellent and you can watch planes take off and land, very pretty at night. All the best attributes of a Fairmontwith a great locale.

Room Tip: Any are great; those nearest runways have the best views of planes.

Whilst the phrase airport hotel does not necessarily excite, here is a notable exception. What a place to be able to stay, shortly after a ten hour flight. Crisp and clean rooms, amazing bathrooms, telescopes to cater for the plane spotter in you and a buzzing restaurant and bar area. Concierge couldn't have been more helpful - arranging bikes for us to borrow for a jetlag-busting ride and offering suggestions for Chinese restaurants nearby. We thought it was great.

We stayed on our wedding night before heading out to Mexico for our honeymoon the next day, lets say we started our honeymoon that night, the room was absolutely georgous, we were in the 7th floor with city/ ocean views, the service was absolutely amazing, georgous rooms with over the top finishes, I really can't stop talking about how amazing this hotel is, I know on our next trip to our anniversary, we are stopping by there for a night before leaving Vancouver. Their continental breakfast was one of the best, and their preferred/ VIP lounge is a must if your planning on staying on their hotel:), they have excellent views

We were so happy and relaxed and had a good nights sleep before getting up early to fly out of Vancouver All staff was very helpful and very nice getting our flight checkin for the morning so we didn't have to get up as early I'll stay there every time we have to leave from Vancouver. Room was quiet and very clean, and our up grade was great with dinner and breakfast brought to our room very relaxing Thank you
