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.

I stayed at the FVA for one night enroute to China. This is the only hotel that is located within the airport terminal. Check in was fast and friendly. The room was VERY large, modern, and well-equipped. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge with a separate tub and enclosed shower. I had to print some documents for my trip to China and… Read more
I stayed at the FVA for one night enroute to China. This is the only hotel that is located within the airport terminal. Check in was fast and friendly. The room was VERY large, modern, and well-equipped. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge with a separate tub and enclosed shower. I had to print some documents for my trip to China and had planned to go to reception to retrieve them and they delivered to my room. I wasn't expecting that. Nothing could be improved. You'll certainly pay more than one of the other hotels near the airport for which you will have to take a shuttle, but for me the convenience of being inside the airport is worth the premeium.

The room I had was definitely quite tired-looking and in need of some TLC, although the bed and pillows very comfortable. And nice and quiet. The stinger was the room service: I thought $26 for an omelette (and nothing else) rather steep but assumed it included 'delivery' but, when the $36 bill arrived with the food, I was shocked - needless to… Read more
The room I had was definitely quite tired-looking and in need of some TLC, although the bed and pillows very comfortable. And nice and quiet. The stinger was the room service: I thought $26 for an omelette (and nothing else) rather steep but assumed it included 'delivery' but, when the $36 bill arrived with the food, I was shocked - needless to say I didn't add a tip given the 18% service charge. Daylight robbery. The front desk and room service staff were exemplary, however. Read less
