Had to book a hotel at the last minute for the family for 3 nights. We reluctantly chose the Airport location as we were flying on day 3. Also wanted easy access to Downton Vancouver. This was the best looking option covering our criteria, so we booked it.
Great idea as we loved the room: spacious, clean and very comfortable beds. The usual Fairmont touches apply here (Keurig coffee, Le labo, good dining and great service. Location is great as it is easy to get downtown (less than 30mins) and their prepaid parking a decent deal (for YVR at12.50per 24hrs).
I liked the brightness of the room, great natural light with views of the runways etc. Gym was great but pool was too small (even for kids over 6yrs).
Only flaw in room was the sliding doors to the bathroom and the lack of a solid toilet door. Meant we woke each other up a few times.
Otherwise a great airport hotel.
Note: they have the option for daytime booking as well so very handy for those in transit.
