“Cant beat it when you fly from YVR.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Staying at this hotel if you have an early flight from YVR is a no brainer. Great rooms, good food and drinks in the lounge downstairs. A true Fairmont, excellent in all facets. Cool views of the airport runways, and really quiet despite being right there!

A much needed oasis between Beijing and Boston. When you have a layover between overnight flights, you can book a room for 4-8 hours so you can get some real sleep. Within the airport, and yet as quiet as could be. Oh-so-comfortable room with AMAZING shampoo and conditioner! I actually felt pampered in between long flights! Thank you.

We stayed one night after a long trip from Australia. We were pleased with the size and quality of the room for the rate charged. We especially liked the bathroom which was spacious and had a jacuzzi. Also the toilet was in a small separate room which is so civilized! The bed was very comfortable and had good quality, fresh smelling sheets. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant and were very impressed with the quality of the food .Free WiFi would have made this an excellent stay. We will be back if we need an airport hotel in Vancouver.

Our family wanted to end our holiday to Maui the best possible way. We had a short lay over in Vancouver on our way back to Edmonton and didn't want to spend the five hours sitting in an Airport chair. We booked into Fairmont at the airport to shorten our travel time around the city. We were treated royally and are still talking about our wonderful vacation, which concluded at the Fairmont Vancouver.

Hotel is in the perfect location for early morning flights.
The room and bed were comfortable, lounge and dinning were good, servers were good.
Our flight left before breakfast, so they made up a bag with buns and danishs.
Will use them again.

After a long and crowded flight from Toronto, the hotel provided a refuge from busy airports, snarled traffic and lost travellers. Our accommodation suited us perfectly, and we were graciously hosted be a perfectly trained and attentive concierge. The setting, the service and the ambience were without peer. We joined friends for dinner in the hotel, and were served wonderful food with impeccable knowledge and preparation. We'll be back again soon.

Room Tip: The Gold Floor facilities and concierge service exceeded our expectations, and there was no negative...

Due to an evening arrival we spent a night here prior to driving to Jasper.
Before I start I must confess that I am a big fan of Fairmont hotels so expectations were high.
We were not disappointed.

1. Location - right in the airport, just a quick walk from arrivals.
2. The staff - they were fantastic, they all seemed to know our names and went out of their way to make our stay perfect
3. Rooms - well maintained with awesome views of the airport, quite a unique experience
4. The bed - best nights sleep in months.

We upgraded to a Fairmont Gold room, well worth considering if travelling as a couple. The extra benefits such as evening canapes, breakfast, tea and coffee, use on the lounge, free wifi etc make the extra $100 well worth it.

Use the online check in service if you can, speeds up the whole process

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at and is, in my opinion, the best airport hotel anywhere in the world. My wife would have been happy to spend the whole vacation here.

If you need to spend a night at the airport or nearby don't hesitate, just book it!!

Also, if collecting a rental car leave it until the following morning, have breakfast and just walk over the road to collect.

PS - join the Fairmont presidents club, it gives you free wifi access at all of their properties

Room Tip: Spend the extra and book a gold room, choose airport views rather than the mountains - not often tha...
