Fairmont Vancouver Airport
- What's Included
We stayed overnight on our way out on holidays. The Fairmont Vancouver is particularily well situated to make it easy to catch your flight at the airport. We had a 6am flight so that means a pretty early wake up call! The Fairmont service and experience was excellent and made it all as easy as it could be.
SO convenient when arriving into YVR late at night, no need for a taxi, or to locate a vehicle, just walk over to the hotel. Reception is friendly and efficient. Room is large and well appointed. Stunning views from floor 13. This was not our first or second visit, but we are always struck by "just how convenient" the Fairmont Airport is. Thank YOU.
Love the fact that as you arrive at the hotel in the airport that the fairmont team passes you your room cards and says we will have your luggage up to you your room a few minutes after arriving... you enter the hotel and go straight to your room... a small but important plus.
We have stayed at the Fairmont YVR on several occasions now and each time it is lovely. The service is impeccable and warm, and makes you feel so welcome. We have stayed here for "staycations", and as well as starting points for those super early flights. I know that the price may seem steep for an overnight stay, but for those of us who are traveling with the kids and don't want to face fighting the traffic and waking up at a god-awful hour, this hotel is a lifesaver. Our most recent stay was because we were heading to Disneyland and our flight was at 8am and we had to be at the airport at about 6ish. Instead of waking ourselves and our daughter up at 4am or earlier to head to the airport, we skytrained into YVR the night before and stayed overnight at the Fairmont and basically woke up, got ready, and strolled down the escalators to the West Jet counter. For those parents reading this, it was one of the few times the hubby and I weren't arguing prior to the trip from the stress :) Vacations are supposed to be fun, the extra money you spend to reduce your stress prior is well worth it to me!And because we planned in advance and let the Fairmont know we were taking our daughter to Disneyland, they went above and beyond and left her a special plate of treats, and a card signed by the staff wishing her a bon voyage, complete with the requisite Elsa and Anna loot bags. She was over the moon. I couldn't help but rave about this service and one of my girlfriends went to Disneyland 2 months later and booked a room for her family and a separate room for her parents. This was a special trip for them and her parents had never stayed at a Fairmont, so I had emailed and asked if a little welcome treat could be left for the grandparents and kids. The hotel kindly left some treats for the grandparents with a welcome card and something special for my girlfriend's daughters. In Grandma Shirley's words, she was "tickled pink and felt like a queen". I would like to especially point out and recognize Angela Plummer, the executive assistant for the Fairmont YVR, for her excellent client service. I know that the hospitality industry should excel in client service, but Angela really goes above and beyond to make my family feel like valued clients, when I know that there are many other clients who stay more and spend more at the Fairmont than mine. Angela is so courteous and professional, and has helped me make all of our stays special, whether it was pre-trip or just a staycation. I really can't say enough good things about this hotel, it has beaten all our other stays in other hotels who are supposed to be of the same caliber. We are heading out for post-spring break at the end of March, and I have already booked our stay!
This hotel is the nicest and most convenient airport hotel I've stayed in. The hotel is accessed directly from within the airport terminal, making it very easy to get to check in or from baggage claim. We had an early AM flight back to the east coast of the US and staying here the night before made it very easy. The rooms are on par with other Fairmont hotels, and the lobby bar was hopping with live music and great food.
