Reviewed 22 February 2016

Overall great location with easy access to airport facilities. Staff and room quality were excellent. The only problem was in the restaurant /bar. The food I ordered came out cold and over done. The bar tender was too busy to check back, he was extremely busy as he was the only one at the bar and the service bar.

Great locale. Inside Vancouver airport. One floor above international arrivals. On arrival to Fairmont hotel keys was ready this was about 11pm. Because of our late arrival I had arranged meals from in room dining to be delivered at 11pm to the room. On our arrival meals was still warm. Hotel offers 24 hour in room dining which is great....

I am very impressed with the Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel! The staff was very friendly and the service was very personal. Kudos to the staff! I will definitely choose this hotel in my next trip. One thing though; it will be perfect if the hotel could provide free wifi like most 5-star hotels do.

I was surprised how quiet it was. I had a very early flight and staying here made it so simple. Never had to go outside. Cannot comment on the restaurant, the room service was quick and the food good. Great bed and sheets, fantastic sleep.

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the best hotel to stay while travelling via air! Its proximity to the terminal is fantastic, eliminating the need to shuttle to nearby hotels, most appreciated when travelling early morning or arriving late night! The hotel is clean and comfortable and staff know their jobs and are very curtious! Thank you!

I was travelling inbound domestically, and outbound to the US. The hotel was perfectly located for my flight to the US. Be warned, however, it can be a long walk from the international/domestic area of the airport!! The room was large, and although somewhat outdated, it was kept very well. I was mid way up, facing the airport. It was...
