Honolulu, Hawaii
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Look for the hidden elevator to avoid the escalator with luggage if there’s no bellman around. Classy, clean lobby with at least two if not four very professional reception agents with a welcoming smile. Some of the best rooms anywhere. Great lay-out. Recently redone interior-decorator-color-scheme. Elegant subtle beige wall-paper (easy on the eye) offset with bright white touches. Impressive wall-to-wall...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks 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.

We stayed here for the first time April 2nd prior to our Monday morning flight. We travel frequently and usually use park and fly and shuttle in before a flight, but after having friends rave about their pre-trip stay at this hotel we decided to spend a bit more and try it. How wonderful to be right at the airport...

Great place to stay especially if you have a 6am flight out of YVR. The express check-in is fast and convenient. The rooms are fairly large and have views of the airport or Richmond. But the best feature is that it is AT the airport.

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback regarding your stay. Please accept my sincere apologies that your sleep was disturbed by excessive noise from a neighboring guest room.

We love being in BC and love the wines from the Okanagan. The four of us had dinner in the Globe restaurant on a recent layover and couldn't wait to try the wines. It was not to be. They are so expensive. It just doesn't make sense to charge over $100 for basic BC wines. IN BC! Hello?! That said,...

Our flight arrived late so checked in at 2:00am or so. Had done the pre-check in so was super fast and key waiting at airport entry which was nice after the 10 minute hoof through the terminal to get there.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay.

To not have bathrobes or a properly working hair dryer would be very inconvenient, and to be disturbed...

We stayed overnight as we had an early flight out. The fairmont is so convenient as you don't have to leave the airport. The rooms are beautiful with a bed that you just melt into. We bring earplugs but the noise from the planes outside are minimal. The price to stay here is high but for the location, easy check...

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...

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.
