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.

Large, comfortable, with eating places. This airport takes care of passengers.

If you have a layover or a plane delay/cancellation, you don't want to stay in the airport if you don't have to. At the Vancouver Airport, at least you have some options to make your 'cancellation' stay a little more bearable. They have a good choice in food items and enough art pieces to break the monotony.

Dropping momma at the airport
153alh

It was extremely good for the purpose of droppin momma off for her flight.
Hotel is excellent and wxcellent for plane watching.
Only problem is we couldnt bring a luggage cart to the room as they belong to the airport.
We were not able to have a drink at the restaurant because of the kids at atound 11 ish. Would be great if there was a family area so we could have a snack and a pint.
All in all a great hotel.

Found the rooms are a bit dated. Cigarette burn on carpet, places where wall paper peeling off. And having an extra charge for wifi - even in the cabs in Vancouver there is free wifi. Not sure why Fairmont feels the need to gouge every little bit extra.
