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!
