At the recent World Airport 2011 in Copenhagen, airport hotels were recognized for the first time and Fairmont Vancouver Airport was awarded “Best Airport Hotel – North America”.
On a recent overnight at the hotel the reason for this award was evident, it’s a great property – a blissful oasis within the hustle of busy YVR!
This AAA/CAA Four Diamond luxury hotel features 392 sound proof rooms just minutes from the baggage carousel or airline check-in desk. Even a standard Fairmont Guest Rooms are spacious, quiet and comfortable, designed to meet the needs of both the leisure or business guest.
Hotel amenities include Jetside Bar, Globe@YVR Restaurant, Absolute Spa at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport plus for those who need to stick to routine; a health club and business centre. If you have time before, between or after your flight, drop-in access is just $15.00, for non-registered guests, to the Health Club, saunas and showers.
I stayed on the Fairmont Gold level, this “a hotel within a hotel” features it’s own check-in desk and team of dedicated staff who anticipate every guests needs. The state of the art environmental controls within the rooms also anticipate your needs automatically dimming/raising lights so you can feel good about not wasting electricity. Lighting, temperature, entertainment and even the blinds are controlled from a unique touch-screen telephone.
In the Fairmont Gold Lounge guests can enjoy complimentary evening hors d’oeurves and in the morning, continental breakfast while reading a newspaper or checking their email on the free wi-fi or just sit back and enjoy a bit of plane-spotting on the runway from the floor to ceiling windows.
Whether it’s pre or post flight or just for a relaxing night away, Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the perfect place to getaway!
