“Wonderful over night stay”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

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.

Room Tip: If you have the time take a leisurely stroll along the garden path before boarding your flight.

This is a great place to stay as a family or a couple. To share with other couples it may not be that great to share as the bathrooms have sliding doors for the bathroom & bathtub and a slatted door for the toilet.

This hotel is great, after flying for 15 hours, arrived in Vancouver totally jet lagged and weary. A concierge met us, habded us the room keys and in less than a minute we were in our room. The standards are totally Fairmont class. loved the place.

Fantastic service, great surroundings and spectacular views. Can't go wrong with that mix. Spectacular views from the restaurant and lounge made this hotel a must stay. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I've stayed many times at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. The location is super convenient and although it is a little more expensive than hotels in Richmond, it's well worth it to me because I save time, effort and money by not schlepping my bags back and forth to an off airport hotel. The food is awesome, view from the rooms is great, it's quiet even though it's on-airport, and belonging to the President's Club (free to sign up) earns perks from time to time.

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.
