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Problem is the noise, the outdated and partially worn out or broken room features makes it a place I will likely not stay again unfortunately.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

Featuring a 24-hour on-call airport shuttle service, this hotel offers two on-site restaurants. Vancouver International Airport is only 1.9 miles away. Free WiFi is provided in all guest rooms.

The air-conditioned rooms at the Coast Vancouver Airport Hotel provide a coffee maker and a cable TV with pay-per-view movies. A hairdryer is available in the private bathroom. Select rooms provide a mini refrigerator.

The Coast Vancouver Hotel offers an on-site gym and a business centre. Two on-site dining options include the White Spot Restaurant. Long term parking is available for stopover guests.

VanDusen Botanical Garden is 3.1 miles from Hotel Coast Vancouver. Queen Elizabeth Park is 4.3 miles from the hotel, while downtown Vancouver is within 20 minutes’ drive. A direct bus route and a Sky Train station are nearby to take guests to Vancouver and Richmond city centres.

The location is perfect for access to the airport but its not a pretty location as its on a very busy intersection. Its very near the airport but its not in the shopping or nightlife part of the city. There is a regular shuttle to and from the airport which is free when you book the hotel. This is very good. There is a Whitespot restaurant attached to the hotel so that is so convenient when you are tired from travelling.

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.

Very close to the airport. comfortable rooms. we arrived late in vancouver and were leaving for whistler the next morning. chose this hotel because for close proximity to the airports and restraints nearby.

Stayed in this hotel for business. I was immediately surprised by the beautifully decorated lobby. The rooms are also clean and it seems newly renovated! The beds were super comfortable. What impressed me most was the friendliness of the front desk staff. The English guy on the front desk was extremely helpful! ( Cheers fam) Staff were friendly and on hand to help! Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again.

A comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay. The park and fly deal is a great value and the service is always excellent. A restaurant on site is a plus as is a free shuttle to the airport. We stay here a few times each year.

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!

Good for a day stay trip! clean, nice location! not far from the centre of the city! free bus services! room are spaces , warm and quite. I would recommend to those who travel to another city. hope see you again!

I have been staying here since 1998, usually 30 or more night each year and even many more some years. It is so convenient, well kept, comfortable and friendly that I have never been tempted to change hotels. They are renovating again, to keep it fresh and comfortable. I like how many power points they have in the room, great for business travellers. It is close to YVR, and has a free shuttle van.

 We were surprised, and a bit concerned when we first arrived at the Hotel in the Airport Shuttle. The reason for our initial dismay, was the neighbourhood in which the Hotel is located. Certainly not an area one would be inclined to go for an evening stroll in. However, once inside, we were greeted cordially, and checked in without fuss. The room we were given was recently renovated, and was very comfortable.
Our room looked down on a rear parking area that was also where the Hotels garbage cans were. When I looked out, there was someone rummaging through the garbage, so I pulled the drapes closed and went to bed. There is a White Spot Restaurant inside the Hotel, and the food and service was very good. The price for the room was very reasonable, and the free shuttle back to the Airport the next morning was on time, and runs every half hour. A tip to remember if you choose to stay here. When you exit the Airport, you have to call the Hotel and request the shuttle be sent for you. Not a huge problem, but unlike some Hotel Shuttles which regularly run back and forth, this one doesn’t unless you call.

The room was clean, but they had is on a main level and there was screaming all night outside. The front desk agent was rude. But there was free shuttle every half hour to the airport. If you don’t need parking it was convenient.

The place is very nice with a White Spot restaurant right there. There is a pub next door. Not much else around would not stay here to vacation but a great airport hotel.
It is a little hard to find as it is tucked away off the road.
With hall painting in progress and tired carpet, first impressions were minimal. However, our room was neat and clean, the bed was comfortable, linens and pillows very nice and it was very quiet. Location is fine, just five minutes from the the airport and shuttle service is available. White Spot provides adequate food and reasonably priced happy hour. Not much else in the unattractive surrounding area. The price was right!
This is a great location to stay at when we visit our daughter in Vancouver. Close to amenities, restaurants, shopping & transit. Hotel has restaurant & pub so you don’t have to go far if you don’t want too.

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.
