The rant: we arrived around 7:00PM on a Saturday night after a flight. There was no assistance at the entrance to the hotel. After check-in, we were heading out for dinner in downtown Vancouver. When we came down, there was still no assistance at the front entrance. We were hoping to catch a cab. We ended up walking back to the other end of the airport to get one.
There were no robes in the room.
The rave: As always, sleeping at the Fairmont is like sleeping on a cloud! The tub is enormous and the rooms are well appointed.
We also came back to the Fairmont on our return trip, which was our wedding annivesary. We stayed on the Gold floor this time and it was outstanding. Private concierge, lounge and the rooms are more romantic. Upon arrival to our room, we were delighted to find chocolate covered strawberries and a card congratulating us on our anniversary. The bed, bedding and pillows allow you to have the best sleep of your life. In the morning, we went to the lounge where a continental breakfast was set up. There were hot and cold choices and plenty of healthy options as well as treats.
Given the opportunity, the Fairmont YVR is my go to hotel when connecting from Whitehorse to anywhere else in the world.
