“A bed to come home to . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

You can't always avoid an overnight in Vancouver in your holiday commute so - if you are stuck after your flight home or need to stay before you leave, there's no better stop than the Fairmont at YVR. Late night check-ins, email registration and check out - and the beds - after a week or more on a foreign mattress, the beds at the Fairmont are the best. And the showers. And the lobby bar. And the staff. Once you have wheeled your luggage from arrivals to the hotel lobby and avoided the nasty issues of cabs or buses to parking lots or distant hotels, you will always make this hotel your first choice.

Before and after a trip, I love to stay at or visit this hotel. Even if I just have a few hours between flights, my favorite part is to sit quietly, have a drink or meal and read the newspaper in the lovely airport lounge. Both the dining and lounge area are comfortable and spacious with great food and drink options. Beautiful, big windows offer spectacular views and perfect seating for the solo traveler or a group. The staff seems to make just that little extra effort so your meal, large or small, is exactly to your liking.
If I have a day or so on either side of my travel plans, I will always try and fit this hotel in. Good place to hang out when you fined you have a flight delay. Massage, exercise and great food are all options!

As our return flight from Montreal did not permit us to make a same day connection, we booked a room at this lovely and well appointed facility in the Airport complex. Great beds,dressing gowns and terrific soundproofing despite being immediately adjacent to a busy airport. Top marks for efficiency with check-in/out and pricing represented good value. The restaurant is outstanding as was the service.

Room Tip: Join Fairmont's President's Club for a better rate.

In most of our travels we favor the concierge/club floors since they make life easier, especially with children. The Fairmont Gold at the Vancouver Airport has been part of our traveling life for the past 8 years. I must say, they they are amazing. The staff is extremely attentive and caring. The food they provide is great. They even make me vegan options. The rooms haven't changed much and could possibly use a little touch up, but that's just me being extremely picky!

I was told to stay here by the airport staff due to an issue with my passport. I was offered the distessed traveler rate which was fantastic becausethe hotel would have been too expensive had i not. But the hotel was great and i would consider here if i travel out of YVR airport again. The staff was friendly, the rooms were the nicest in airport hotel I have ever stayed at. It had a huge tub, the room was large, and my son had fun watching the plains take off. Perhaps the best asset was that the checkin for alaska airlines was directly under the hotel. So I had an extra hours sleep before my 6 am flight. If you have a super early flight, stay here.

We checked in online, upon arriving to the hotel our room keys were ready and we headed up to room 1005. Views of the runway and mountains. Bathroom is huge; double sinks, soaker tub, seperate shower and toilet. Just a note: the bathroom doors are thin - so you can hear everything. The Fairmont sent us up complimentary champagne with chocolate dipped fruits to congratulate us on our engagement - an excellent surprise! The pool area is great - not busy and nice loungers to sit on. The pool overlooks the check in counters on the airport below which is neat. Great stay!

When I want a hotel that does everything perfectly, effortlessly, this is THE hotel! From gracious staff, wonderful food and an all too comfortable bed....not to mention the ease of access to the airport, especially those early flights! I look forward to staying here!
