“excellent airport hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

voted,i think,best airport hotel in North America,i reckon possibly best airport hotel worldwide!
In terminal,minutes from the check-in desks,friendly and efficient staff,clean,comfortable and spacious rooms.
food in the restaurant was extremely good and not overpriced for such a location.
Try to get an upper floor room where it's possible to watch the comings and goings of a major international airport-great fun!
look forward to visiting again and i hope soon

Only stayed one night after flight from Uk before flying to Whitehorse the following morning.

Had a room with 2 very comfortable king beds- no telescope ! overlooking the runway.
Everything you could need apart from some slippers which would have been useful. Excellent in room coffee. coffee maker, kettle and tea bags, however, no creamer, milk or cookies.
( unless you puchased them.)

Lovely bathroom, very large bath which was great for a soak after a long haul flight. Separate shower.

Was given voucher for 50% off breakfast, great choice but would have been rather expensive without the voucher- $28 ++ pp.

Join the Presidents Club- free to join, then you get free wifi.

Highly recommended hotel and in a ideal situation if you need a bed between flights.

Had an absolutely wonderful one-night stay here – everything was perfect!

The room was north-facing, with a great view of the mountains and runways 08L/26R. Mounted on a tripod was a Nikon spotting scope, ideal for watching takeoffs & landings. What a very thoughtful touch!

The layout was spacious and comfortable; and the bathroom was very "typical Fairmont" marble, with a large shower and a tub.

Dinner at Globe@YVR was scrumptious; we tried the mushroom soup, sablefish, & salmon, which were all delightful.

The location is perfect, as the hotel is right in the airport; super convenient to walk out of the hotel almost directly towards the check-in counters.

To top it all off, customer service was excellent throughout, from check-in to check-out. I'd definitely come back, and would easily recommend this hotel.

We love starting our vacation at this hotel, if you have an early morning flight, start your trip with a stay here. It is right in the terminal near the USA departures and close to International departures too. Staff very helpful, wonderful restaurant and lounge. Noise from the airport is not a problem here and I am a light sleeper. Beds are very comfortable and we love the spacious and luxurious bathrooms, even in the least expensive room category. The shower is huge.
You cannot go wrong here.

A classy hotel like the Fairmont should not charge $13.95 plus taxes for wifi for 24 hour use. Tacky.

Hotel needs a few upgrades.
One-remove ugly loose fitting shades on lamps and put in pot lights in ceiling.
nice upgrade in toiletries, install better fan in toilet area, provide extra bath towels and please 2 housecoats when there ar 2 people in the room. Lovely restaurnt-good food and services. Why lock a fridge, everyone wants to see inside -is there anything worth buying in it???? just leave it unlocked and see what is missing when people leave. Room service breakfast for 2 $29 and $25 with takes and gratitities was $75.00 RIDICULOUS

Room Tip: People who are Fairmont members should be upgraded with out any costs after all what is the point of...

Stayed at the hotel with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Very impressed. I can see why it is rated the best airport hotel. The room was great, very quiet with good views of the airplanes. My daughter loves airplanes. Had lunch at Globe. Food was great and the staff was fantastic. At check in, we received a coupon for free cookies and milk for my daughter. What a great touch. Eventhough we live in Vancouver, we will definitely stay again.
