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.
How to Get There
Great restaurant, lounge. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Online check-in. Rooms are great. My favorite airport hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel. Location is excellent with airport location and easy to take train downtown.
Arrival with my booking checked in and keys already cut when I arrived via taxi was absolutely efficient and a wonderful surprise! Very courteous staff and rooms always comfortable when I stay. Always stay here in the beginning of my vacation. Best way to decompress!
Lovely hotel fabulous rooms . Food was fab as was the wine in the bar . Only bad thing was the bar tender who totally ignored us forever so we went to our room instead to ask for two champagne flutes . He was a bad seed but everyone else was great as was the hotel and it’s service as usual
This hotel is a fabulous beginning to every holiday, especially if you have an early morning flight out.
Splurge for The Gold Floor with its fabulous service, beautiful honor bar with appies , gorgeous rooms with super comfy beds.
Just a wonderful way to start a vaca, perfection.
My wife and I travel away in November each year to celebrate our anniversary. As part of that celebration we like to start things off right with a stay at the Fairmont YVR. This was our sixth year in a row and like all the previous stays, this one was superb.
Our room (Signature King) was booked in advance online. The reservation process was seamless and follow-up email and phone communication was professional and informative. I had advised the hotel of an early check-in. To our delight, at around 1pm we were met by two staff members at their kiosk at the base of the escalator leading to the hotel (US departures area). They advised that our room was ready and provided us with our room cards. Very friendly and efficient.
We stopped at the main front desk as due to circumstances beyond Fairmont's control, there was to be a power outage overnight (from around midnight to 4am). Staff provided us with led flashlights and made every effort to mitigate any inconvenience that we may incur.
Our room was a Signature King Suite which had a beautiful view of the North Shore mountains. The room itself was spotless with all the standard amenities. The bathroom is quite large, double vanity with a relaxing jetted bathtub. A nice surprise was the thoughtfulness recognizing our anniversary with some bubbles and chocolate covered strawberries!
A large advantage of this hotel is the convenience. It is located at the US departures end of the airport and is a short walk to International departures as well.
The Fairmont YVR is a very nice hotel that provides a high standard of service for a wide selection of clientele whether it be for business or pleasure. Another very enjoyable stay and I have already booked for next April.
