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.

Staff are excellent in delivering service and are very friendly. The rooms here are. beautiful, and bedding so comfortable. I also enjoyed the Jetside Bar for dinner. The food was excellent. Very convenient for early flights out in the morning.

Easy and fast check-in and out, beautiful rooms, fast room service. Too bad we just stayed for one night between flights. It is so convenient if you don’t have to leave the airport at all. My 13 year old daughter was sad we had to leave. Everything was PERFECT.

While I assumed our stay at the Fairmont would be good, the experience exceeded my expectations. The staff member who checked us in (Andrea?) was extremely kind to us and our two year old, (she even sent up milk and cookies to our room which he thought was just the best). Overall the hotel was such a great place for kids, which I didn't expect. Every other staff member we met or even passed in the hallway was friendly and personable. The food was fantastic. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and soundproof, and of course when traveling with young ones being in the airport makes things so much easier in the morning. Thank you for a great stay! Read less

Great room layout. Lovely view of Vancouver's north shore (albeit far away and $10 more). Also good view of airplanes moving 'round. Not noisy. Pricey but you pay for the luxury of the convenience. We took the skytrain downtown for dinner on our brief stop over and came back 'home' to the airport and a comfy bed. Brilliant. Make sure you don't buy… Read more
Great room layout. Lovely view of Vancouver's north shore (albeit far away and $10 more). Also good view of airplanes moving 'round. Not noisy. Pricey but you pay for the luxury of the convenience. We took the skytrain downtown for dinner on our brief stop over and came back 'home' to the airport and a comfy bed. Brilliant. Make sure you don't buy the upgrade (food etc) if you are leaving super early cause it isn't open super early and you'll pay for virtually nothing. Staff did try to sell it to us, which we weren't impressed about as they knew how early we needed to leave. That's my only real beef. OH and watch they do credit you for your staff if you collect points. They didn't credit us! Read less

Admittedly, it is a bit more expensive to stay here. Having said that, you get great service, amenities and accommodations for the price...making it worthwhile. The rooms are generous in size as is the bathroom. We enjoyed our stay!
