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
We live in Vancouver and have stayed here many times. The last time one family member was flying out early so we decided to book a Gold Floor Room so the rest of us could have a mini vacation. It's not worth the extra money if you are staying here the night before a flight. The main hotel bar is more comfortable than the Gold Floor lounge and has the same floor to ceiling windows. The Gold Floor lounge has been recently remodelled and we didn't find the chairs or furniture arrangement to be very inviting. Further, there aren't any games or movies available. Also, the food selection is less plentiful/varied than other Gold Floor offerings we've experienced. (Shout out to Whistler, Seattle and Victoria!)
We still LOVE this hotel. The rooms are great and so is the bar/restaurant. It's also relaxing to sit by the pool. For an overnight however, for us, the Gold Floor wasn't worth the splurge. Hey, if you're on an expense account GO FOR IT! Also, since the floor is reopened at the start of summer, it may be going through growing pains...
The room was great and the bed & bedding was amazing. It was just like sleeping on air. The only downfall for us was that we were only there for 5 hrs. Located in the airport so it only took us 10 minutes to walk to our gate, we didn’t even have to walk outside. Great staff as well. Highly recommend.
This hotel checks all the boxes... great location if arriving late or catching an early flight in Vancouver. Modern, clean Fairmont hotel with the high standards of the brand. Easy access into the city using the SkyTrain if you want to explore the city or dine downtown. Quiet and comfortable rooms, great staff and relaxing.
After a long day of travelling and it the end losing our luggage we had the pleasure of staying in this facility. The night desk clerk was super friendly and greeted us with a genuine smile. When we told her that we had just lost our luggage so she provided us with toiletries and without asking she gave us a room upgrade which was over the top nice of her. The room was fantastic, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud and super quiet. Thank you Fairmont Vancouver Airport!
The Staff were exceptionally helpful and thoughtful as we asked our many questions. I want to give a shout out to two in particular: Mila at the Concierge desk, and Dimitry at the Front Desk - Thank you for making our stay a truly memorable experience.
