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.

Reviews

5 stars price with 2 stars service
Yukitraveler

The room is specious and clean as you will expected with the price they charged, however the wall seems thin as you can hear next door accessing their room and so. Everything is bearable apart from the most snoobish concierge person that I have ever encountered with hotels, the lady was doing her job so unprofessionally by not given an eye contact but nasal sound for answering. Strongly advice ppl of you are not in the rash, spend the amount they charged you with other hotels to avoid unpleasant experience.

Perfect stop over

This hotel is perfectly situated for an international stopover. Excellent service all around, easy checkin, great room, with tea amenities, coffee, cream provided etc. Very well appointed

We had drinks in the bar, listening to live music, and dinner in the restaurant. Food was outstanding

Not a cheap place, but definitely worth every penny and a nice way to set the tone for the trip

Nice & Carpety Clean

Nice & friendly staff, good variety of shopping. Arrival side has carpet on a larger area where kids can play (with own toys) whilst you wait. Parking facility is great l. Literally 2 minutes walk. Departure side also good.
