We normally book here the night before we leave due to the extremely convenient proximity to US check in (downstairs!). For this stay, we were arriving during the evening and travelling with young kids. Unfortunately, due to a delay and missed connection, we arrived at 1:30am. As we approached the escalators, a Fairmont staff member approached us, greeted us by...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

We had a very late arriving flight and an early departure flight a few days later, so decided to stay at the Fairmont, which is an excellent hotel located INSIDE the airport. The hotel entrance is adjacent to the departure desks. This saved us on our rental car, which we did not need until the next day and could drop...

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding your recent stay. I'm so pleased to know that you loved the convenience our location provides and that you are definitely planning on returning for another stay in the future. I do regret that our louvered door design and the light control panel proved frustrating. We are currently in...

We decided to upgrade to the gold level ($50 Canadian) Very much worth it, you get so many extras that individually are worth a heck of a lot more (see pic). You can never go wrong with a Fairmont Hotel.

We stayed one night between flights and it was so comfortable and relaxing. The beds were very comfortable with lovely linens and everything smelled so good! We had room service, which was decent but not exceptional (pricey and basic) but the service was great. Really nice toiletries are provided as well.

My stay at Fairmont Vancouver Airport ("FVA") was a 1-night stay in a Fairmont Room with an early morning check-out time to accommodate a flight departing YVR at 6:45am. The hotel is on the 4th floor of the airport, and the lobby is located across a pedestrian walkway atop a pair of escalators by the US Departures check-in counters. I...

The room was amazing, beds and linens really nice as well. The bathroom was spacious and the provided products were good quality. Room service was good as well. Overall it was really nice until around 2 AM when the fire alarm went off.

Thank you for your review. It is great to read that you loved your guest room, amenities, spacious bathroom and our In Room Dining service.

Instead of the early morning rush to catch a flight, consider staying at the Fairmont YVR for a more relaxed start to a holiday or business trip. Check in was very smooth and easy. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, although a bit more attention needs to be paid to the decor and condition of the rooms: a framed photo on...

Thank you for your feedback and for recommending our hotel to other travelers who have early flights out of YVR. I'm glad that you had an enjoyable stay and a pleasant dinner in Jetside Bar.

Arrived in YVR around 1900 on the BA service from LHR ready to catch early morning flight to Palm Springs. Hotel is a five minute walk from arrivals which means you can be relaxing in the bar/ comfort of your own room within a short time from landing. Staff are pleasant, efficient and were extremely helpful in sorting out my...

Just arrived in from Denver after 3 weeks on the road and decided to overnight at the Fairmont since my flight did not connect. Only to have the fire alarms go off at 2am. Unlike so many I immediately evacuated my room and headed to the nearest emergency exit. Only to find myself lost in the tunnels under Vancouver airport....

We used the Vancouver Airport Fairmont for a single night before picking up a R/V to tour the Rockies and then for a further 2 nights when we returned. We splurged on a Gold room on the 14th.floor to enjoy the incredible view of the runway and plane traffic movements. We enjoyed our time spent here. The hotel staff were...
