Overview

Convenient Vancouver airport hotel with a foodie focus, spa, soundproofed rooms and easy flight check-in

The Lowdown

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport offers convenience, views of the runways from virtually every room and public space, and perks like lobby flight check-in. Eating and drinking are a focus here; try the Globe@YVR restaurant’s reserve-grade aged Black Angus beef and sustainably caught seafood, and then head over to the Jetside Bar for fruity travel-themed cocktails. The hotel has its own bee farm, and the honey ends up in everything from waffles to Fairmont Honey Lager, an on-tap brew made in partnership with the Whistler Brewing Company. All 392 guestrooms and suites offer pillowtop beds and Le Labo bath amenities; special hypoallergenic guestrooms cater to the dust- and dander-averse, while the Quiet Zone offers respite all day to cope with long layovers. Pamper yourself after being cooped up in a plane with a signature massage at the Absolute Spa.

In the Area

Downtown Vancouver is just a short train ride away on the Canada Line, and the station is right across the street from the Fairmont. A handful of newcomers to the city’s already stellar international dining scene will treat your taste buds with authentic flavors and innovative meals. Go to Shirakawa for the wagyu beef, grilled or raw, prepared by Japanese-trained chefs. With a menu that ranges from vegan lentil pâté to dry-rub elk, Exile Bistro puts a new spin on Pacific Northwest cuisine, as does Blacktail, which features local ingredients in such dishes as the 72-hour sous-vide heritage Angus short rib.

'Gold Star' Experiences

We have stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport several times and the last two times this past month we upgraded to Fairmont Gold. What wonderful experiences we have had. Anastasia greeted us upon arrival and catered to our every need. The next morning Daryl also did a great job of taking care of us. We have already booked our next visits.

Unexpected gem of a hotel inside the Vancouver International Airport.

Wonderful people, very good accomodation, superb food and the best view of the North Shore Mountains that I have ever seen...no rain! Also with the rapid transit at the airport you can get downtown quickly. Have to say it again that the people were great!

Perhaps the ideal airport hotel.

We stayed in other hotels in Canada and Alaska on this trip but none compared with the Fairmont. I have stayed in many airport hotels and the rooms are often airless, stuffy and noisy. This hotel was none of those things. It is within the airport building complex and well signposted from arrivals. It is close to the exit for the sky train which provides a quick journey of about 30 minutes into Vancouver. A return travel pass for the city cost us about 15 dollars for the day and covered buses and trains. There may be concessions for over 65s.
There is an elevator lift from the airport level and so access for a disabled passenger should be manageable. The staff were very helpful.

Very accommodating

To the point of getting emails on what we liked, what we needed, what we didn’t like before hand so they could have the room perfect for us. Everything was there that we could’ve needed, extra waters, beer, wine etc. thank you much
