Fairmont Vancouver Airport
- What's Included
Very convenient in-terminal hotel. Exceptionally comfortable and efficiently run. The staff are very professional and the rooms are very nicely furnished with great sound-proofing. Always a pleasure to return.
Iâ€™ve been staying at the Fairmont YVR Airport since it was first built. This is perhaps the best airport hotel anywhere. It is literally inside the airport. The spa / fitness center / pool / hot tub area is directly above the checkin counters so you can watch people check in as you do your thing.The airside rooms look directly at the gates and north runway. Great views for aviation buffs. The windows keep all the noise out.The restaurant and bar is excellent and super accommodating. Tonight there was excellent live music. My kids kept making strange requests to the staff and much to my surprise the staff did everything to accommodate them.The only downside is that the electrical systems were too cute from the start and are now way beyond their service life. Itâ€™s time to re-wire and re-switch the rooms. This is a minor inconvenience at an otherwise super excellent property.Cheers!
So nice to walk through the airport and up to your room. The beds are the best!!! Room was clean and very comfortable. So easy to get up in the am and catch the skytrain downtown then bus to the ferry terminal all very easy and non stressful.
We have dined in the restaurant on many occasions over the years, and quite dismayed at the quality of fare served at lunch this afternoon; tasteless Calamari and underwhelming Cranberry melt...one medium slice cranberry white bread few pieces of dry chicken with some melted cheese, cold matchstick foes and small side salad for $21?This is a big come down from the meals that were offered a few years ago.Be aware that if paying by credit cry they will authorize a 20 % gratuity to the bill but not tell you about it and I cannot recall any restaurant conducting such a practise without disclosing this at the time or in advance...called the hotel tonight after the higher amount of Visa account in authorized transactions and was told by staff member that they have this system and get quite a few calls inquiring about higher authorized bills...This practise and the poor food quality has left a bad taste in the mouth and thus are unlikely to return for future meals. Too bad as it is very convenient for the airport.
Maybe being at the airport means peoples' stays are so short that they don't normally pay attention to some of the details of what their $400 or $500 is buying, or maybe they have so much money they don't care. Whatever the reason, this hotel needs some work: I had to dig under the bed for the $5 walmart power bar to plug-in my phone for the night; the rubber skin/labeling covering the dimmer switches in the bathroom was breaking and meant I had to experiment with the switches to get the lights to respond. The shower head was lame...like at my aunt's 1870's era (albeit renovated a couple decades ago) farmhouse. On the other hand, the people working at the hotel were terrific! Check-in and out was a breeze, the lounge where my wife and I grabbed a bite, a couple of drinks and listened to a talented musician entertain us was also terrific and a nice way to spend a couple of hours.Would I stay there again? Yeah, most likely...but it's time for Fairmont to kick their maintenance program into high gear and get a few things updated.
