We were grounded overnight in Vancouver on our way to Hong Kong (treated very nice by Air Canada staff) put us up in Fairmont - we paid a $100.00 to upgrade to club floor, because free bar and starters were still on and it included breakfast so it seemed like a no brainer. I'm sure other room would been fine. You walk from baggage right to the hotel in five minutes. The hotel is extremely quiet, the staff was amazingly friendly and the room was very nice with a telescope to watch the planes. The nicest Hotel TV we have ever had in a room, and of course a very comfy bed for two very weary travelers. The pool and gym were perfect and dinner was pleasant and quiet. We had a great nights sleep and a good breakfast then walked down to check in, and then waited the rest of the time in the lounge.
If you have to stay overnight in vancouver and are flying out next day, then I would highly recommend the fairmont. We felt very rested and well looked after. We even took a morning stroll along a very nice garden path. They are working on a new mall, which looks like it will be lovely out at the airport, but other then that, the path was a very nice start to the day after breakfast. All over night stays should be this easy and nice.
