I stayed at the hotel because a friend and I had an early morning flight to Tokyo. The hotel was really great although as a modern hotel it lacks the ambiance that draws me to the Fairmont heritage hotels in Canada. I loved the fact that if I hadn't been sharing the room with my friend I could have opened the shutters and sat in the bath watching flights take off on the runway. The bathroom by the way is lovely. The room was nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The airport view is fantastic if like me you love airplanes.
Best of all we were able to get up in the morning, check in for our flight and the return to the room for a shower and some relaxation before we had to pass through security.
If you are trying to justify the price of this hotel you can save a few $ by eating your meals at the fast food chains in the airport.
I know that BCAA members and BC residents receive a discount on rooms.
I plan to stay there again as soon as possible!
