“Planes R Us”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

If your an airplane buff this is as close as it get to the action with the luxuries to boot.
We decided to make this a weekend getaway from our home on Vancouver Island and it was wonderful.
It's not the cheapest get away but these pieces of real estate come with a price tag.
It's nice to treat yourself once in a while.

This hotel is perfect if you need to stay at the airport. It is located in the airport, so you do not even have to get out to check in.
The rooms are very comfortable and some have great views of the airport, mountains and planes. The lounge serves great food and is very cozy with big fire places. Breakfast is healthy and wholesome. You can check in for your next flight in the lobby using the check in machines.

Much more than regular airport accommodation, highly recommended.

I stayed at this hotel because my flight out of YVR was canceled. I loved this place! Really nice hotel and the best part was the air side bar/restaurant. The room was clean and so was the hotel. The hotel is located near the US departures area and was a bit of a walk for me because my first leg was domestic and domestic departures was on the complete opposite side of the airport. However, it was still much more convenient than any other hotel since it was located right in the airport. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling out of YVR.

I had a long layover from Vancouver to Minneapolis. I booked a room at the Fairmont airport hotel in Vancouver. The ambiance was tremendous and the room made me want to stay a few more days. The most appealing thing was the king sized bed that proffered the best night sleep I can remember. A total experience that I will repeat when opportunity affords me that luxury.

Room Tip: Enjoy, I know I did!

My wife and I stayed overnight on the Gold Level as we were transiting between legs of a trip. There was something in the room that went click-click every few minutes, making sleep difficult at best.

When I mentioned this to the host the next morning, they explained it was the in-room music system clicking as it changed songs. I got a gosh, we're sorry and they picked up my tab for two over-priced beers in the lounge.

Fundamentally it was a disappointing stay. While the rooms are quite nicely appointed, the little things - like a clicking music system - were not well executed, making my night less than good. Add to the rather cheap response to the evening and I won't stay there again.

Fairmont at the Vancouver Airport is an excellent choice prior to an early morning flight or a late arrival. Have stayed a number of times, excellent rooms, great service, rooms facing south are great. Casual dinner/drinks at the lounge are first class. Excellent gourmet pizza and pasta dishes. At 4 am the bellman will take your bags down to the departure level right in front of the Alaska Air check-in....does not get any better or easier than that.
