We stayed here on our wedding night, and were impressed by the service and quality during our stay. While not cheap, it was worth the price! I just wish that we had more time to enjoy the room and amenities! If we ever need accommodations before early morning travel, this is where we'll go.

We decided to fork out and treat our selves after a month travelling USA and Canada. We stayed her the night prior to our departure back to US. Worth the money- rooms have great views if you're an airplane buff, large bathrooms, super clean and extremely comfortable beds!! So much so my partner and I didn't want to get up for our flight!!!
Plenty to choose from to eat as we explorer the airport and ate down there.

Definitely a must when visiting Canada is to experience a Fairmont hotel!!

Although somewhat pricey for pensioners, Fairmont YVR is as good as it gets for connecting-flight convenience: Internet access and airport amenities are readily available along with first-class accommodations. We were warmly greeted and well taken care of by friendly, knowledgeable people in a facility with rock-solid roots.

A bit pricey, but you are paying for a super convenient location and luxury accommodations. After twelve hours flying and arriving after midnight before proceeding on further, the last thing we wanted to do was go in search of a nearby hotel. This was perfect, as we approached the escalator leading up to the hotel a bellman was waiting for us to arrive and had our room key and info ready for us, so all we had to do was head to the room, no fuss, no bother. The room was exquisite, well sound-proofed from airplane noise and best of all there was a full length bathtub in which we could both soak our cares away. Everything was perfect, can't rate this highly enough.

Definitely above average for an airport hotel..in fact, it's probably one of the best airport hotels in North America. Typical good Fairmont service. As a luxury hotel, it falls a bit flat. Terrible food at the Jet Side Bar..salty disgusting burger that really made me feel sick. I'm still angry about that. The "jet pool" was a gimmicky joke. Needs a real swimming pool. Lots of wear and tear showing..and the hotel is only 15 years old. And the sealed sound proof windows creeped me out..felt claustrophobic.

My husband and I spent one night on our way back from Mexico. Love being right at the airport. Love the bed and bedding. Love the control panel for everything right beside the bed. Overall awesome stay.
