Fairmont Vancouver Airport

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel

The Fairmont couldn’t be more convenient placed for travellers, its right inside the airport! Don’t let the thought of noisy planes put you off though, it’s completely soundproof ensuring a peaceful stay in the height of luxury. You don’t even need a shuttle bus; the lobby extends right onto the concourse, the first hotel in Canada to do so! World-class amenities include a state-of-the-art health club with indoor swimming pool, a children’s wading pool and saunas. There is also the Absolute Spa offering a whole range of treatments to effectively combat jetlag — perfect for those who want to be on top form right from the word ‘go’! Dining is also a treat at the Fairmont with the award-winning Globe at YVR Restaurant not to be missed. What’s more, children 5 years and under eat free in the restaurant with children between 6 and 12 years half price! The Jetside Bar is also very popular and make sure you indulge in afternoon tea, a great tradition at the Fairmont with specially-blended teas and a delicious variety of house-made cakes and pastries.

Room was comfortable and well appointed and front desk very responsive. We had an issue with the AC and the front desk quickly arranged for us to move into the room next door. You can't beat the location for arriving late at YVR or for the convenience of an early departure.

Dining experience a disaster. Cannot believe a hotel with your reported exceptional service standards would allow the pricey sale and serving of such poor quality food. Obviously your food and beverage management are oblivious to their services.

I really like the hotel as I have stayed here before and I had to choose a hotel for quarantine. My husband used to run the Coast Airport Hotel, but I much prefer your hotel. Also, I was impressed that since I only stayed 2 days that you are reimbursing me for the 3rd night. Impressive...
