Fairmont Vancouver Airport

Reviewed 8 June 2014

Fairmont Airport is always premium, predictable and welcoming. This is probably the nicest airport hotel that I've stayed at. Staff are genuine. If you love planes, its fun to overlook the runways and look at all of the activity. Rooms are modern and well kept. Staff is welcoming and always wanting to assist in positive way, but not in your face.

The hotel is located conveniently at the airport area granting easy and convenient access to a comfortable bed soon as you step out of the baggage claim area. What makes it even better is the very nice and spacious room, with a huge bathroom that has a sliding panel you could open while you soak in the tub, relaxing and at the same time watching TV. The sweet smelling toiletries helped in providing a relaxing and comfortable stay that you almost would not want to step out of the room. Easy check in and a fast check out desk --- what else could you ask for? Did not get the chance to dine at the restaurant area as it was very late at night when I arrived. Then again…everything else made up for it.
The only thing would be the signage as I had to ask for directions at the information counter at the airport --- perhaps they would want it to be more visible?
Just a thought --- it would work for people not really familiar with the location.

With some notable exceptions, airport hotels tend to be soulless and somewhat depressing accommodation. Happily, the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel is one of the exceptions.
The hotel couldn't be more convenient as it is located within the international wing of the airport terminal. Unlike most "airport" hotels, there is no need for shuttles, you simply walk to the end of the terminal and catch the elevator.
The Fairmont has a modern, stylish ambience with all the facilities expected of a quality hotel. Rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped for both business and leisure travelers. Even though the hotel directly overlooks the airport terminals and runways, there is little or no intrusive noise due to the double glazing. To help guests take in the view, the rooms are even equipped with a telescope! The bathrooms are large with a separate shower and spa baths.
The restaurant provides fine dining options, although it is quite expensive.
The Fairmont is ideal for those in transit or about to commence a long journey.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on high up on the northern side of the hotel. This will give you a good view of both...

We got stuck in Vancouver because of storms in Texas and chose to stay overnight here. If you have to be stuck what better place could you be? Excellent staff, comfortable rooms, great food and so easy to wait for the weather to clear for a couple of days.

I stayed there for 1 night because I had a transfer flight to Saskatoon after a 10+hrs international flight from Shanghai to Vancouver. It is a good location and high quality service for refreshment if flight transfer.

You are in the lap of luxury in this hotel. We were given a free room and breakfast from the airline, and it made up for the delays in our flights. Only regret? Using the restaurant voucher for the buffet, should have used it for something off of the menu
