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.

Our flights were canceled, and we had to find a last-minute hotel with two tired kids in tow. The staff was amazing - they provided a quick and easy check-in, and even offered a wagon of toys for the kids to each select something from. Great experience and definitely would stay again!

What an lovely hotel. We totally enjoyed our time here. The live music playing in the bar was relaxing. The staff very were pleasant and professional. We elected to stay overnight here after arriving on a cruise. It is just a few steps to check-in with our airline at 4 am. We would stay here here again. So convenient.

Excellent n every level, food, ambiance, room. Complete attention to detail. The experience was all around great and totally fit our needs pre flight. Plus it was so quiet I never heard an airplane. Our room was looking out on landing runway

An airport hotel that actually is accessible direct from the terminal is what I classify as an airport hotel (no transfer busses and the like!).

An airport hotel that actually is accessible direct from the terminal is what I classify as an airport hotel (no transfer busses and the like!). This is exactly how the Fairmont is, directly accessible by lift and escalator, close to US departures (and so quite a long way from Domestic services). You can take luggage trolleys into the reception area, which is handy. The signposting at the airport is a bit patchy......following one sign-post we then struggled to find any follow up, due I think to some being removed during refurbishment of the airport. The reception team were excellent and we got swiftly allocated a room and sent on our way.....just what you need after a long flight. The room was excellent.....actually huge, with a large bathroom with full-length bath tub and separate walk-in shower. Also plenty of conventional electrical as well as USB sockets. Not always there in even the modernest of hotels And of course open the curtains and there are all the aircraft sitting at their gates. Fairmont have even supplied an aircraft spotters guide, presumably for the insomniacs, although sleep was not a problem for this satisfied customer. Read less

We chose the hotel because of its location. We were on a late flight and decided to spend two nights and visit Vancouver as it is an easy metro ride in. Had a good view overlooking the airport (all rooms probably have airport views) and the room was quiet and comfortable.
