Only hotel located directly in the Vancouver International Airport
Expensive rates

Airport hotels aren't usually lauded for their luxury. But the Fairmont Vancouver Airport – the only hotel located directly within Vancouver International Airport (YVR) – ups the comfort for guests in transit. Situated above the U.S. departures terminal and only a short jaunt from baggage claim, the Fairmont offers soundproof floor-to-ceiling windows, minibars, Le Labo bath amenities and flat-screen TVs. When you're not sleeping off jet lag, travelers recommend kicking back at the Globe@YVR restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling windows put you right in front of the departing planes, while a Pacific Northwest menu will fill you up for the journey ahead. And if you're looking for a little pre- or post-vacation rejuvenation, recent visitors recommend a treatment at the Absolute Spa. If you're in the mood for a nightcap, travelers suggest Jetside Bar for its local wine selection. Though previous visitors warm that the hotel's comfort and convenience comes attached to a hefty price tag, you can earn airline miles and perks if you're a member of the Le Club AccorHotels program.

Located inside the Vancouver International Airport just above the U.S. departures terminal, the Fairmont Vancouver Airport is a favorite for guests flying in or out of the city. The upscale chain hotel has 386 rooms with flat-screen TVs, fully stocked minibars, and bathrooms with separate showers and tubs.

Condé Nast Traveler


You'll have a bird's-eye view of the runway comings and goings at this hotel that can be accessed through the departures terminal. Although 'spacious rooms' in grays have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on the tarmac, 'you never hear a plane take off or land' thanks to the soundproofing.

Travel + Leisure


This Fairmont outpost attached to Vancouver International Airport is a dream for jet watchers (and anyone needing luxurious digs between flights). The hotel towers above the airport’s U.S. check-in area, and rooms on the north side have terrific views of the main arrivals runway with the Shore Mountains as a backdrop.



This beautiful airport hotel has lovely rooms featuring sound-insulated windows and high-tech temperature and lighting controls. The jetted lap pool adds extra weight to the high tech fitness center.
