We have stayed here before and it is always excellent. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful. Excellent location if you need access to the airport terminal as it is in the same building. We stayed for a concert downtown and found that the Canada Line was extremely convenient and efficient. Much more economical than similar hotels downtown but just as accessible. Breakfast in room dining was very good and was delivered very quickly, even though we understood the hotel was at full capacity. Great for an airport stay or a jumping off point for Vancouver if you are willing to take transit.

I stayed here on my way home from a cruise. I liked the fact that the hotel is located in the YVR facility. What a hotel! I am mainly a Holiday Inn kind of person although I have stayed at a lot of Hiltons, some Sheratons and Marriotts and even a RItz-Carlton, but the Fairmont beats them all! A giant room with a million dollar view of the runway, the water and the mountains. A bathroom to die for- all marble with a large shower AND a soaker tub. Super multimedia hookup console and lots of places to charge my tech toys. I had room service delivered at 4AM by the friendliest (and best dressed) waiter I have ever encountered in a hotel. Hotels in Vancouver are pricey so go for it and stay here! Checkin was fast and easy although I checked in early (no waiting for a room!). Checkout at 5AM was also fast and easy. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Should I ever get back to Vancouver, I will absolutely stay here again!!

I just finished my stay at Fairmont Vancouver Airport at the beginning of a 3 week vacation.

First impressions were good, when I was met in the airport and was asked my name and given my room key without even needing to go to the registration desk.

I was given directions on getting to the lobby of the hotel and then to my room. It was at the end of the hallway on the 7th floor.

The views of the aprons of the airport are very good, even though just the smaller US bound jets. Others have said that they didn’t hear the planes in their room. It must be on room location as I clearly was able to hear them from the last flight to the first of the morning. Get the other side of the hotel if sound will affect your sleep.

To the facilities of the room. Like other reviewers I found the room very dated and in need of renovations. For the nightly price and room service rates, they should be able to afford renovations.

There are several things I will mention, just because I notice everything.

To start with, the buttons on the air conditioning controls are almost worn off so it was hard to tell if I was adjusting up or down. The closet door won’t stay closed as looks like the track that keeps it closed is worn out. On the smaller size, older lcd tv, none of the functions worked except channel up and down. Most buttons said unavailable when pushed. The desk phone is an old cordless phone with the antenna on the base removed or broken off. Looks like a 15 year old cordless. The bed phone had several buttons that didn’t work, including for wake up calls. So I just pressed zero to ask for one.

Lastly the bed. Others have mentioned the comfort, I found it a little hard for my liking and was up a couple times in the night.

I try to be balanced in my reviews, and in this one it seems that I am just complaining. I don’t mean to, I was just looking forward to a wow factor and I didn’t get one.

On the plus side, the service was great. When I did reach person for wake up I was greeted by name, and the meeting with my room key was also a nice touch.

Problem is the noise, the outdated and partially worn out or broken room features makes it a place I will likely not stay again unfortunately.

Can’t beat the convenience of the location however, right in the terminal.

As this hotel is located within the USA departures area, is the most convenient (and also the most expensive) option for over-night connections at YVR.

I have stayed here a few times and found that the rooms are spacious and well outfitted, but the furniture is a bit worn and on numerous occasions the control pads that are used to turn the lighting on-and-off did not work properly, so we needed up either either “all on” or ‘all off”. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the linens are crisp and soft, and the tub and shower amenities are in line with what one expects from a Fairmont.

On my most recent trip I opted for the web based “Check-in now” service (as I always do), however upon my arrival there was no one at the bell desk. After waiting around for about 15 minutes, I instead had to carry all of my own luggage to the main desk and check-in. When I asked why there was no one at the bell desk, I was informed that there often isn’t after 10:30. I mentioned that the instruction for the online checkin clearly state that as a President’s Club member, my room keys should be available at the bell desk to which I received a blank look, some shrugged shoulders and a change of topic. I brought this situation up again at checkout and was informed that the instructions were correct, but that “someone obviously wasn’t where they should have been last night”.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the main draw to this hotel is the location. While the rooms are of good quality and fine finishings, they overall elegance of the Fairmont brand is hard to find here.

Whether its breakfast, lunch, dinner or a cocktail, if you have time, take the walk through YVR airport terminal to the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel. You don’t even have to go outside.. ask the Information Desk for directions. Its absolutely worth the walk. Sit by the fireplace, enjoy live music in the evenings, and watch the planes come and go.. Just remember…don’t miss your next flight!

We stayed here for the first time and it was wonderful! We had a 6 am international flight so decided to splurge rather than stay elsewhere in Richmond and get a taxi or shuttle in the morning. The entire experience was first class from the email communications every step of the way, to the concierge having our key ready for us. The room was beautiful. There is nothing I can critique, it was worth every penny and I will stay again.

The service here is wonderful
As you walk in the front door, the concierge had your key ready.
It is wonderful to be able to check in early online
The rooms are very beautiful
The bathroom is very luxurious.
The nice part is that you can walk out of your room and check into your flight without heading outside in the cold.
If you have any early morning flight, this is a perfect place to stay
Lovely warm hotel with direct access into the terminal. Could not get more convenient than this. Used it as a stopover for an early morning flight and was the absolute right choice for our needs.
Loved the decor as well.
Room was well insulated with minimal noise coming through from the planes.

Have an early flight then I suggest doing what I have done a number of times. Stay at the Fairmont hotel which is located right inside the Vancouver airport. There are many places to have dinner or late snack close by. I love the fact that I can have breakfast in bed rather than rushing early to the airport and worrying about traffic etc.
The staff here are very friendly and helpful.

We had a great first time experience with this hotel. We arrived EARLY in the morning from a long flight and had less than 10 hours until we had to catch another plane. We appreciated that it took less than 5 minutes to get to our room after clearing customs.

The hotel offers online check-in so we were able to do that prior, grab our room keys and head to bed. The room was wonderful, clean and modern. The checkout process is also online and so we sailed out of there easily.

We’ll take advantage of this convenience in the future for sure!

I found this hotel to be an excellent choice for my overnight. The food and the bar are awesome. The checkin was very easy and was 100 percent correct. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you.

This was an excellent stay. From the time we arrived in the Gold lounge we were welcomed actually expected. The room was luxuruous and the beds were just so comfortable. The Gold lounge was typical Fairmont with outstanding service, food and beautiful ambience and views. I would highly recommend a stay on the Gold floor!

I usually stay in airport hotels because I mostly have long flights or early AM flights and I don’t want to be stressed out with having to go to the airport early or being stuck in long layovers. Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel is my favourite. All my stays were perfect. Comfortable bed, strong and very relaxing shower – perfect after long flights, great staff and easy check in/check out process. Staying here has become a habit for me when I’m travelling via YVR.

A number of times we have stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport as we have early morning (or late night) flight that makes it impossible for us to return home to Vancouver Island. This is not an inexpensive hotel, but it is beautiful and the convenience of being IN the airport can not be understated. The rooms have a very pleasing layout . The bathroom shower is separate from the toilet. The beds and linens are INCREDIBLY comfortable. Staff is pleasant to deal with. Honestly? Great place to spend a night.

We missed our connection at YVR, so the airline put us up at the Fairmont. It’s definitely a quality hotel, the bed comfort is amazing, with the room surprisingly quiet. Check out their lounge as well, a great place to unwind and enjoy your layover.

Very clean and an all around good experience. When considering a place to stay while travelling by air this location service and amenities can’t be beat. Travelled down town to see a hockey game and it was door to door, quick and inexpensive.

We wanted to celebrate my wife’s birthday with a trip to somewhere she had never been before. We took a quick flight to Vancouver without a hotel reservation, because we didn’t really know what we were going to do when we got there, or what part of town we wanted to be in. We often rely on Trip Advisor to help us find hotels, rental cars, attractions and more. When we saw the amenities at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport, we figured it would be a bit pricey. We were very surprised to see the price for what they were offering, but then we were worried that the rooms may not be what they promoted, and the reviews might be too good to be true. We had a very early flight going out of Vancouver, so it made sense to stay near the airport.

When we got to the hotel we were very impressed with how beautiful and well appointed it was. We still couldn’t believe the price! The staff was super friendly and attentive. Then the nice young lady who checked us in informed us that we would be upgraded from the room we had booked through Trip Advisor. The bar and restaurant were first class and the service staff was wonderful. When we got to the room we were even more astounded. Even though we were only there for a couple of days, my wife insisted on enjoying many of the special amenities in the room, like the whirlpool tub, just because it was her birthday. 😉

The hotel is literally right in the airport. From the lobby to the rooms, this hotel has sound proof windows. You’ll never know you are staying at the airport. Planes came and went all day and night and we never noticed unless we were looking at them. The local public transit system (TransLink), which is right across the street from the airport and hotel, takes you to within walking distance of just about anywhere you want to go. If you get a Compass Card DayPass ($14.75) you can use multiple trains and buses all day. Parking and traffic in several parts of Vancouver looked to be pretty tough at times, even (especially?) on the weekends.

This was a special trip and it was made all the more special by our stay in the Fairmont Vancouver Airport, an unexpected extra treat. Thank you Trip Advisor and thank you Fairmont Vancouver Airport for the birthday present for my wife.

Green Features: Vancouver is way ahead on being environment friendly. Recycling bins are smartly labeled so you can tell what goes where. We saw reminders everywhere about how to be environmentally friendly.

Vancouver Airport (YVR) has been named the best airport in the world.

The CAPA Centre for Aviation crowned YVR with the prestigious title at the Aviation Awards in Amsterdam on Thursday.

CAPA said the Vancouver Airport also has been a leader on the technology and environmental fronts. Last year the airport received an innovation award from CAPA for its BORDERXPRESS Automated Control Kiosks, which has reduced waiting times by more than 50% and is now in use at 32 airports across North America and the Caribbean.

Some of the highlights implemented and offered at YVR include a 32% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per passenger over the last decade and is the first airport to secure a salmon safe certification, highlighting its commitment to protect water quality and aquatic life.

Award Winning Art and Architecture
A stunning west coast-themed international departure area, and almost unanimous customer satisfaction reports (91 per cent), YVR features the largest Northwest Coast Native art collection in the world and two satellite Vancouver Aquarium exhibits.

Restroom for Pets
The pet-friendly restroom features a puppy potty and a grass floor as well as features to allow easy access for people with disabilities.

Free Yoga Space
Need a stretch before heading on that long flight? Vancouver International Airport has a room for you.
YVR and Yoga have announced a new pilot program that will provide a free yoga space for departing passengers.

In Terminal Hotel and Spa
Fairmont Airport Hotel and Absolute SPA located right in the YVR Terminal

This is the first time YVR has earned the ranking and is the first North American airport to do so. Previous winners are Singapore Changi Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and Beijing Capital International Airport.

YVR has grown from serving only 1,072 passengers in 1931 to an expected 22 million in 2016. It now serves over 35 airlines from around the world.

The Fairmont is a lovely hotel and as it’s on airport so is very convenient for a stopover which is why we were there. We had a late flight into Vancouver and were driving to Whistler the next day so only stayed the one night. The rooms are large and comfortable and our family (2 ad and 2 child) had interconnecting rooms.
The only thing i would say about this hotel is that if you are a family or travelling for pleasure as opposed to business, the buffet breakfast works out extremely expensive, I would probably go back into the airport to get breakfast!

Great service. Hotel was very clean, rooms spacious and the staff went out of their way to help us. We were asking about tours, maps of the city, train to downtown… they provided us with maps, all kind of information… Really great service.. Looking forward to go back..
