“Treat yourself at YVR”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

As with most Fairmont hotels they are luxurious, high class and expensive and the YVR hotel is no different. Exceptionally quiet and located right in the hotel. If you need a stop over in Vancouver it's well worth the few extra dollars. The bar in the lobby is spectacular. Very Canadian.

We arrived from Maui at 11 pm and had a 7 am flight so we stayed at the Fairmount - beautiful hotel, great room and the service was top notch - we arrived in our room close to 11:30 and room service accomidated our order even though what we wanted was not available in the late night menu - they were very willing to accomidate our needs and were quick. Checkin and out weere simple and pleasent. Wish we had planned to stay longer it was that nice.

Room Tip: Any room is fine when you're only there or 5 hours.

The Fairmont is a class act no matter where it is. As a stopover to or from Asia, the airport hotel is an easy walk through the terminal, provides a luxurious room with a telescope for those who marvel at planes taking off or landing. I like it when they do both but don't need to watch personally. It is obvious that the Fairmont does not cater to any of the airlines departing from Vancouver; their dining room is 5 star gourmet with an excellent selection, as to be expected, of BC wines amongst their offering. I usually stay downtown, but when a quick layover makes sense it doesn't get any better than the Fairmont.

We stayed here in mid April for 1 night on our way to Palm Springs with a very early morning departure. What an awesome idea and this hotel did not disappoint. From check in to check out it was wonderful. Up grade to the Fairmont Gold floor if you can, its worth the extra cash. Not only are the rooms beautiful but this floor includes breakfast (which they packaged to go for our early flight) and also evening honour bar with appetizers which was really fun and we met some great people, and the floor has your own private concierge.
The room is very comfortable and l really enjoyed the mountain view. You really don't hear the planes but staying here the night before an early morning flight feels like you are starting your holiday early and its really fun and worth it.
We also tried the Jetside Bar were we enjoyed calamari and delicious martinis and the service was terrific.
We highly recommend this beautiful hotel and would definitely stay again in a heart beat.

Cheers

Room Tip: Go for the Fairmont Gold floor, definitely worth it.

From booking my reservation to the "I'm on my way" feature to a smooth checkin with a friendly, helpful staff, this was another great stay. I had a comfortable room with great amenities overlooking the working part of the airport but no jet noises ever disturbed me. Friends met me for drinks in the Jetside Bar followed by a superb dinner in the Globe restaurant which featured fresh local ingredients cooked with style. Smooth, attentive service by well-trained staff.
Look forward to staying there again as it's a great way to begin a holiday---just a short walk to any part of YVR.

A very comfortable room. Spotlessly clean with comfy beds and nice linens.
Great staff -pleasant, friendly service.
Good ambience and service in bar/ eating area.
One can enter the hotel direct from the airport concourse (at USA Departures) via escalator, stairs or elevator. There's a helpful young man stationed there to help with bags.
Our room had an airside view. Beyond a certain time there is very little noise and the double glazing copes admirably during operational hours. There's even a telescope provided for a closer look.
We could see the floodlit ski slopes at Grouse and Seymour.

Only a slight caveat - bathroom wonderful but there are louvred doors right beside the bath, opening directly onto the bedroom. Not a problem for most couples but possibly uncomfortable for some people.

Room Tip: A room on the airport side allows great view of airport operations and is only slightly noisy. Every...
