Convenient to the airport.

Posted Aug 23, 2017
We enjoyed our one night stay at the Fairmont on our layover in Vancouver. The room was lovely, large 3 sheeted bed and enormous bathtub. The doors to the bathroom didn't slide freely to close however. My only criticism would be the free use of dairy in the granola and muesli. We're lactose intolerant so couldn't indulge. I'm also vegetarian so the rest of the menu was unsuitable also. Had the muesli and granola been dry we could have enjoyed it with our choice of 'milks'. Please have a menu that's more vegetarian, vegan and lactose intolerant friendly. It wouldn't be difficult.

Convenience personified

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Since a VERY early flight out, we chose the this Fairmont hotel which was in the terminal of Vancouver International Airport. It was extremely quiet and most comfortable. Staff was very professional and friendly.

Pricey but wonderfully close

Posted Aug 21, 2017
This hotel is right inside the airport so it saves on time and cab fare to another location. With a late arrival and an early morning return flight the location is ideal. The price....though high....in line with the services offered. Hotel is clean and elegant and the restaurant good....a bit pricey but in line with the services offered. Drinks and wine were very good and they had live music in lounge.

Beautiful hotel in YVR Terminal.

Posted Aug 20, 2017
We have stayed at this hotel multiple times, but our first stay in five years. The room was booked to help prepare for an early-morning flight. The hotel is no longer "new" so we were prepared for a decline in the building and our experience. We are happy to say, nothing could be farther from the truth. The impeccable service from every staff member started our visit off on the the right step. The room was perfect. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the shower was amazing. Room service was timely and the food was excellent. The view onto the airport gates was a hit for our kids - they had front row seats to all of the airport action. The pool facility, although small, was clean and met our needs. Although the sound-proofing was sturdy, we were able to hear some late-night (very early morning) flights arrive. It should be noted that we were on the side closest to the gates. In previous stays we've been on the north-side and airport noise has not been an issue. The room was well worth the 3 minute walk to the departure desk for our 6am (4am check-in) US-bound flight.

Hotel is in the international terminal. 1-2 minute walk indoors to USA flights. Nice view of runways. No noise though.
