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.

We had an overnight stay to catch an early morning flight and it was the perfect location. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was very nice and quiet. Only negative was the lounge was closed and the only option was to use the dining room, which we did not want. Overall, a beautiful property and will definitely stay again.

We used this hotel twice. Once after arriving late and once when departing super early. Expensive but certainly worth it. The entrance is right at/above the American airlines departure area (Delta, Alaska Airlines, etc). It was worth our group to stay here due to the amount of luggage we had (we had been skiing) and the times of our flights. Walk… Read more
We used this hotel twice. Once after arriving late and once when departing super early. Expensive but certainly worth it. The entrance is right at/above the American airlines departure area (Delta, Alaska Airlines, etc). It was worth our group to stay here due to the amount of luggage we had (we had been skiing) and the times of our flights. Walk from front desk to airline counter was less than 5 minutes. The hotel lobby has airport luggage carts for use which is just super! The rooms were spacious and super clean. Front desk staff was nice and very helpful. We ate at the hotel restaurant twice and the food was excellent. Due to Covid restrictions you require a reservation to eat in the restaurant but that was never an issue and we did not have to wait either time to be seated. Read less

Overall I had a great stay at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. I had two small issues. As I was getting in after midnight I requested a bottle of wine be left in my room. The wine opener that was left was pretty poor quality. I could not remove the cork with it and ended up having to push the cork in. Not ideal when you've got an $80 bottle of wine. Ideally there would be standard cork removers rather than poor quality disposable ones. The bathtub drain also did not seal so as I took a bath I had to add more water 4 different times. I believe my room number was 901. Other than that, the room was beautiful and spotless and the bed was beyond comfortable, I had an amazing sleep. The staff were great, my luggage didn't make it at the same time I did so the staff were generous in providing me with toiletries for my stay. I would definitely stay again, great hotel Read less
