Very nice hotel. It is great to have the hotel at the airport, as it is so convenient. You can pick up your luggage and go straight to the hotel, no waiting after being on the flight. I will always use this hotel when i travel by air.

We recently stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel, and it was truly amazing. The beds are the most comfortable I think we have ever slept in, in a major hotel. The service was excellent and the overall experience was memorable. Great location, particularly for checking out and flying out. Easy to get to Downtown Vancouver. No hesitation in staying...

Reviewed 19 January 2016

Rooms are outstanding and service impeccable. Our main reason for using this high end hotel is to facilitate early or late arrivals/departures. I would have appreciated some cheaper food options in the Globe restaurant. Smallest "bowl" of soup at a very high price. When you are very tired, it is not appealing to trek down into the fast food area...

Thank you for your comments.

We had an a late flight from LAX for a ski vacation and I couldn't be more pleased then to stay here at the Fairmont. It's attached right to the terminal so you don't even have to go outside. I was able to check my ski bags on the lower level. Beautiful and comfortable!

Due to a 6am international flight we decided, hesitantly, to stay here. Wow were we surprised. This hotel was up there with any other 5 star hotel I've stayed in throughout the world. The rooms were enormous (we had a corner suite), the staff amazing and the views over the airport were fantastic. The restaurant was also brilliant. We joked...

When I arrived very late in the evening, after a long flight, I really appreciated the welcoming staff and the quiet and clean room.

The staff were wonderfully helpful and prompt during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The bellman took our bags to the departures level and placed them on a cart for us. This was most helpful as it is difficult for my wife to look after the luggage as well as push me in the wheelchair.

Reviewed 17 January 2016

This hotel is the most convenient place to stay overnight at the Vancouver Airport. Any other hotels in the area require shuttle whereas The Fairmont is located right at the airport. However, it is very expensive. The benefit is location, otherwise rooms can be found near the airport that are just as good.
