You ask me to recommend a hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, it has to be the Fairmont Vancouver Airport.
I have been lucky enough to stay there twice for FREE!!!. Once as a travel agent when it first opened its doors, wow I can’t believe its been 10 years already. The second time as a flight attendant. Our aircraft went sick so the company paid for my whole crew to rest there before setting off for the Caribbean.
If you are an aircraft spotter their piano bar has amazing views of the airport and the aircraft apron, so sip a cocktail whilst watching 747’s arriving and departing to all points on the globe.
The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the only soundproofed luxury hotel and spa located in Vancouver’s international airport (YVR) in Richmond, BC, Canada.
To get to downtown Vancouver is a breeze DIRECT SKYTRAIN MONORAIL TO DOWNTOWN ONLY 25 MINS from door to door, it couldn’t be easier.
