The location of this hotel, directly in the airport (departure level) is so convenient! After a long day of traveling , it was very pleasant to be able to rest and relax in this beautiful hotel. The room was so quiet, the bed so comfortable and the view on the tarmac and the mountains quite unique and the breakfast delicious... More

All good here. Makes life easy catching early flight, checkout was great. Walk down a flight of stairs and just a short walk to all airline check ins . Not sure why anyone would stay 7/8 mins away and hav to do a shuttle or cab in am.

We had to fly out early in the morning so it was great to be able to stay in the airport and watch the planes and the busy airport traffic from the window and not have to worry about the hustle and bustle of the airport until we were ready to leave.

We stayed at Fairmont Vancouver Airport the night prior to an international flight. The service was fabulous. The front desk clerk, Kelly, was so helpful. The room with a view on the gates and the plane taxiing was perfect for someone with ADD like me. The hotel room has a booklet "Plane identification" to identify planes we were spotting. The...

I've stayed at here many times over the years and must say it is the quietest airport hotel anywhere. At the north end of the terminals it sits fully connected. Check in is effortless and the staff trained and polite. The rooms are well appointed and always impeccably clean. With all that said, I'm tired of the nickel and diming... More

Rooms are worth the price but food and drinks are ridiculously priced. Even wanted to charge for Internet. Locked my key in my room and felt like it was an inconvenience to the staff. Would not stay here again.
