We stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport on the last day of our trip in April 2024. It was so nice to drop the rental car off at the airport and walk in to the hotel. The stress was so much lower knowing we just had to walk downstairs for our airplane the next day. The front desk was so kind when we checked in, they offered the two kids to choose a toy from their toy wagon. Well that was already a win. The elevators worked quickly and our room was impeccable. We viewed the airport and that was a fun night the whole time. We booked the two queens room and the windows are huge. The bathroom was spotless and the kids loved the big bathtub. A highlight for us was the pools. There are 3, one biggish pool one kiddie pool and a hot tub. I liked that they were all warm. It was a quick stay but very enjoyable and I'd go back in a heartbeat. The Nespresso machine was a high plus for mom and dad.

Hotel's Favourite
Due to a very early arrival at Vancouver Airport and a 4pm check-in at our downtown hotel, we were in need of somewhere to shower and rest for a few hours and the day use packages offered by the Fairmont Vancouver Airport are just perfect for that! The Fairmont is the only hotel located within the airport itself, so it's perfect for those who don't want the hassle of shuttle buses or taxis to their airport hotel. We arrived just before 8am after our flight from Australia and the check-in process was reasonably smooth, although it did take the receptionist a few moments to find an available room with two double beds as we had booked, instead of a king room. Our room on the 8th floor was comfortable and modern, with great views of the airfield. The bedding was super plush, which was welcome after such a long flight. The bathroom was large with separate bathtub and shower and stocked with quality amenities from Le Labo. Unfortunately we didn't have time to make use of the hotel's other facilities however there is plenty on offer including a pool, gym, spa and multiple dining options including 24/7 in-room dining. For those who are more interested in a shower than sleeping, the hotel also offers guest access passes to the gym and pool with shower, towels and amenities all included for around $30. This is a great value option given YVR doesn't have an arrivals lounge anymore. We were only there for a few hours, but the Fairmont certainly made a good impression and met all our needs. Would definitely recommend it!

We chose the Fairmont because it was at the airport. We were arriving late and catching a connecting flight in the morning. I requested a wake up call for 6:30 am. I woke up at 6:50 am. We immediately jumped out of bed got dressed and gathered our things to try and catch our flight, which was boarding at 7:20 am. The wake up call got dropped/missed and we almost didn’t make our flight (5 mins to spare). We had eaten at the pub in the hotel and they “gifted” us $50 credit towards it.

Amazing place! We were visiting Fairmont Vancouver Airport at night on April 8th. The facilities are amazing! Including essence of the shower amenities and aroma coffee. However, the most impressive part of our stay was a check in experience. Front Desk Associate treated Myself, my Kid and my Husband as a Top VIP Guests. Even we were visiting place for the first time. She provided full explanation about the Hotel, assured us that we would have a playpen delivered to our room and bell boy service. Which was done promptly after our check in. She is exceptional Team Player in this place. I wish to see more people like her in hospitality industry. We end up confirming that it will be our place to stay next time while visiting Vancouver. Thank you very much for your service, Ailline . Apologies if I spelled the name wrong, biu she was only one person at the receythat evening. Thank you very much for the pleasant stay!

We had a one night stay gold level and it was a lovely experience. My son and I drove to BC from the prairies and my husband was flying out to meet us to continue on the trip to Victoria. It made sense to stay at the Fairmont YVR for ease of connecting with him when his flight arrived and for my son and I to be able to relax when we arrived. When we arrived, we pulled up to the valet area and unloaded and had our suitcases taken away by valet (hotel carts are only for valet use although presume we could have used an airport cart). It was a good thing we did as the parking area was quite a ways away - we had to loop around the entire parking garage, then go in the bottom level and up to P2 and P3 where you can walk back to the hotel. It is definitely manageable but something to think about if you have lots of luggage or mobility concerns. Check in at the lobby was easy. The front desk clerk explained where everything was, gave us the free drink coupons my husband gets for his Silver status, and took the tag to have our luggage delivered to our room. My son and I went up to relax and have enjoy some of the evening canape's and a drink. The theme was asian that night and had a mix of asian inspired appies including pork ribs that my son said were fantastic and sushi as well as an assortment of cheeses. The room was so nice - comfortable, quiet and very luxurious. The welcome airplane cookies were very cute. After my husband arrived, we went to the Jetside Lounge for supper. We all had burgers (2 regular, one with a gluten free bun and one veggie). All were excellent and very good size burgers. The veggie burger was a homemade patty (and absolutely delicious) which was a win for me as veggie burgers are all too often a fake meat style pre-made burger. The server was very knowledgeable and checked on my sons gluten free status based on the request for a gluten free bun - since he was celiac they did do the fries in a separate fryer and didn't coat them in flour like the regular fries are. We made it up to the Gold Lounge for the evening desserts that they have between 8 and 9 or 9:30pm. They were super small portions (literally 2 bites) but really good. There was an orange creme brulee that was SO good and I believe a cheesecake that night. They probably could upsize the desserts slightly. We had a great night sleep and were all amazed at how quiet it was for being at the airport - we were on the parking lot side as they do not appear to have runway view rooms in a double queen gold level. Breakfast the next morning was the only weak spot in my opinion. They had the standard gold level assortment of an egg dish, a meat dish, a potato dish, oatmeal, yogurt, juice, baked good etc. I am going to assume we hit an off day, but in spite of it being busy but in no means slammed with people, pretty much everything was out on rotation - my son went up for a couple more sausages, they were out. My husband went for a yogurt, that was out. I went for coffee, no coffee. All ended up getting refilled but just seemed a bit disorganized. But my biggest issue with breakfast was the baked goods - they were just your average not that fresh pastries (muffins, crossaints, bagels, bread) that you'd find at an 3* hotel chain free breakfast. After several stays at the Fairmont Palliser Gold Level in Calgary where the baked goods are all fresh in the morning, that was a let down. All in all it was a great stay and I would 100% stay again if it works out that we need a hotel in Richmond even if we weren't using the airport too.

I stayed at the Fairmont YVR Airport hotel overnight, and upgraded my stay at the Gold Level...the best value for my money spent on this upgrade. The room facilities and view was spectacular, the front desk staff Angel was super friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel at home. The beverages and edible treats that came with the hotel package was unbelievable as far as selection and tastes are concernened. The housekeeping staff was spot on and made sure that everything I need/want in my room was provided for in a jiffy. I highly recommend this hotel to stay in.

We've stayed at this hotel several times when stopping over in Vancouver and it never disappoints. This time we stayed on our way home from Australia. When coming off a 14 hour flight it's really nice to be able to walk to the hotel from YVR Arrivals without going outside. It also gives you those extra minutes in the morning when you have an early flight. Check in is always fast/efficient with friendly staff and my kids love the complimentary toy they receive upon check in. The rooms are always very clean with all the necessary amenities. I love how the toilet is closed off from the rest of the bathroom, which makes much easier for our family to get ready for an early flight. Beds are comfy and the Nespresso machine for our 3:30am wake up was much appreciated! The pool is somewhat small, but it's great they have some floats and toys for the kids. There are a few other reasons why I love this hotel and keep returning. First, being in the airport means you have access to a variety of food/dining options without having to go outside (helpful when you are travelling to a warm destination in winter and don't have winter coats, hats, etc). There is also a pharmacy onsite if you have a need. Furthermore, the hotel offers Day Use Rooms 4, 6, 8 hours. We didn't need these this time around, but have used them many times in the past when we have either had longer layovers (expected and unexpected) and when we have had evening/night flights. It's great to have the private space to refresh and relax between or before flying. Worth every penny! Finally, if you do want to go into Vancouver, the train will take you right downtown in less than 30-minutes. We will definitely continue to stay at this hotel when passing through Vancouver!

Clean room, professional staff Professional, pleasant staff Clean, well appointed rooms I booked via a 3rd party (Air Canada) but imagine my disappointment that Fairmont would not allocate stay points to my Fairmont Accor account due my booking not directly with the hotel. The hotel is still benefiting from my patronage

We stayed here one night as we were flying out the next morning and what a lovely luxurious stay! By far the best airport hotel we've stayed at and top hotel generally as well. My husband booked the gold floor and so we got to eat a lovely and quieter breakfast in the lounge on the floor and enjoyed trying out the telescope in the room for airplane sightings. Would definitely stay again.

Wouldn’t rush back. Children screeching - fine it happens. But the excessive dog barking for 1.5+ hours. Calls to front desk to rectify issue. Unacceptable. Why are animals being left unattended to disrupt the peace and sleep of others. Barking well past 11pm.
