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 had a great stay at the Fairmont Vancouver airport. The convenience of being located at the airport when flying out early in the morning is unmatched. The restaurant put on a really nice Thanksgiving meal. The only problem I had was that the coffee maker in my room did not work first thing in the morning. Everything else was spectacular.

Stayed overnight between connecting flights. Room was gigantic and beautiful. We had a hypoallergenic room, which I really appreciated. Restaurant was delicious and the waitress worked her tail off. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great, and of course it was super convenient to be right at the airport the next morning.

Lovely accommodations with a soaker tub in most rooms. The convenience for an earlier morning flight cannot be emphasized enough. Quality, comfort, and convenience! The jet bar always has a great selection of food if you are peckish. If you want something simpler just hop on the sky train outside the hotel and head into town.

We stayed 1 night in the Jade Suite with our 3 young kids who wanted to go on a little "trip"! The room was fabulous - spacious, well appointed, comfortable with a wonderful view of the planes in action. The older 2 kids shared the huge sofa bed and our youngest slept in a pack n play inside the kitchen - it worked out very well. Gold lounge access and service were top notch. The attention to detail - amenities with our name printed on the bottle was a delightful surprise. Kids enjoyed the kiddie wading pool and hot tub. We can't wait to return. Read less

Awesome experience Thanks to Joshua, our server, so kind and thoughtful. Reservation is a must. Beware: Groupon only allow to sit four people, not good for group booking. Awesome choice of tea. AAA+++
