The Vancouver Airport hotel is a very handy place to stay espc if you have an early flight, situated in the terminal building of Vancouver Airport their is no rush to get to the airport. The room are excellent and clean and they also have a good view of the runway and perfectly sound proofed. If you find the hotel restaurant not to your budget us the one in the airport. Also if you have time you can hop on the sky train and go into Vancouver.

Room Tip: get a room facing the bay and runway

This is an impressive hotel, great for travelers by being conveniently attached to the airport. We stayed on the club level and had a wonderful room, very large and nicely appointed. My only concern was all the odd noises (not from the airport) but in the room. We could hear the neighboring room opening or closing their drapes. Also, I finally figured out that the other noise was the air conditioning cycling off. Very strange loud sound, either turn it off or set the fan so it stays on, otherwise you will be alarmed by the noise that it makes. Also, the in room movies did not play well on the tv, they sort of flickered or jumped around, very annoying when you're paying for a movie. The regular tv stations did not have this problem.

My husband and I spent the last night of our Vancouver trip here as we had an early departure the next morning. We took the Canada Line from our downtown hotel to the airport, walked a short distance to the US Departures Terminal and took the elevator to the hotel – it couldn’t be more convenient.. Check-in was smooth and it was a felt good to experience the tranquility of the hotel after spending the week in downtown Vancouver dealing with the crowds, noise and the homeless. Our room was lovely and had many nice touches. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were wonderful. The bathroom was large with a walk-in shower and soaker tub. Our room overlooked the runway and it was enjoyable watching the planes land and take off – yet we heard no noise. There was coffee in the lobby in the morning – a nice, welcome touch.

Our stay was nearly perfect. The only issue we had was at check-in I asked what time the hotel restaurant opened and was told 6 am, which was too late for us. I then inquired as to what
time the different food outlets opened in the US Departures terminal and was told they didn’t open until 10 am. That would have been problem for us. Next morning at 5:30 am all of food outlets were open, including Starbucks, Jetbox and even Tim Horton’s. That employee needs to be better informed.

We took a walk after dinner and crossed over the bridge from the hotel to the airport. The terminal is closed from 8:30 pm to 3:30 am. The vast building was totally empty except for three guys cleaning it. It was an unusual airport experience. When we returned at 5:30 am the next day the terminal was packed with long lines of travelers at the various ticket counters.

Our stay was most enjoyable, the hotel was pure luxury and we highly recommend it.

This is the only hotel that is located inside Vancouver International Airport. It is therefor very convenient if somewhat expensive. Rooms are large,quiet and very well appointed. This is definitely a luxury hotel with a decent restaurant and bar. A great place to stay if you have an early flight.

We stayed a single night on the way to Vancouver Island. Great room with comfortable bed, pleasant staff. We had lunch and breakfast in the restaurant. Breakfast was great, lunch was even better. Props to Warren at the bell desk who helped us with some storage space on very short notice! Would definitely stay here again.

Just what you want: positioned right over the departure hall, spotlessly clean rooms, good food and staff that leave you in peace to sleep off the jet lag and work out where you are. No phone calls from front office or house keeping - tranquility at the end of a runway. Highly recommended.

I live in Vancouver and travel a lot around the world. I also have had my family stay at the hotel as it is the most convenient location and tops in terms of service, amenities and comfort. I have stayed at other Airport locations with different hotel groups and they always seem to be the poor cousin in the chain. This Fairmont property is as luxurious and comfortable as any hotel I have been too. The Gold floor has everything any business traveller desires.
My (88 year old) father on this latest trip arrived at noon and had a beautiful room available right away. They looked after him from the time he was brought to the hotel by the Air Canada staff without any hassle or whatever. They were helpful, professional and extremely friendly which made my father feel completely at home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: All rooms have great views but the higher you go the better it is. Choose between the airport runway...
