Actually, booked a last minute room at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. It began snowing the night before our flight. The only way we could guarantee that we would be parked and at the terminal on time was to stay at a hotel in the airport.
Getting an booking was easy. We checked into the hotel after 1:00 a.m. The entrance to the hotel is lovely and the staff was quite accommodating. The room was large but could perhaps do with a little refurbishing. The best part of the hotel (besides for the location) is how quiet it is considering the fact that you are staying right in the middle of the airport.
We had a nice breakfast at the hotel prior to going to our gate. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who has the slightest doubt that they will make their flight in the morning. With the construction and traffic difficulties surrounding Vancouver, it is worth the time and money to have a good night's rest before your flight.
