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Problem is the noise, the outdated and partially worn out or broken room features makes it a place I will likely not stay again unfortunately.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