The room I had was definitely quite tired-looking and in need of some TLC, although the bed and pillows very comfortable. And nice and quiet. The stinger was the room service: I thought $26 for an omelette (and nothing else) rather steep but assumed it included 'delivery' but, when the $36 bill arrived with the food, I was shocked - needless to say I didn't add a tip given the 18% service charge. Daylight robbery. The front desk and room service staff were exemplary, however.

We stayed one night before a flight home in a Signature Studio Room. It was very large with a comfortable king bed, sofa and chair, large TV and lots of space. The bathroom was huge with double sinks, soaker tub and large shower. All the staff were pleasant and since we were there during COVID they were careful to follow all the proper precautions. We had room service for dinner and the food was tasty but we did have to call down a few times for missing cutlery and glasses. Breakfast the next morning in the restaurant was good and plentiful and the server was very attentive since there were only a few people there. Overall, a very good experience.

We always love to hear from our guests so thank you for taking the time to post about your impressions of our hotel. I'm delighted to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your Signature Studio as well as the service from my team. I do regret to learn that your In Room Dining meal did not come complete with the necessary cutlery and glassware so we will continue to work harder to ensure a perfect experience each and every time. I hope that when your travels return you to YVR that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again. Warm regards, Patrick Gosselin General Manager

I am a US citizen, and flew into YVR to get married to my Canadian fiancee, only to be told that getting married was not considered "essential" and that I had to return to the states. I had to get a flight the next day, and booked into the Fairmont to have an easy stay. I was astounded by the level of service from (I believe his name was Dimitri). Management, please confirm the employee who was on shift at approximately 4:00 pm on May 14th, as he deserves recognition. I was met with the friendliest greeting I think that I've ever encountered at any customer-centric venue. Even through the mask, and behind the plastic panel, I felt his smile, even though I couldn't see it. I also work in a customer-centric venue, and hold a Management position. This guy is an ace. If I worked closer to BC, I would be offering him a job. He was kind, patient (with someone who wasn't in the best place, having been told that their wedding was "not essential") and helpful to someone who wasn't familiar with the city. The one shining moment of the trip was the check in experience. If I am ever in YVR again, I'll be staying here. They know how to treat people, and they really make you feel special, even on your worst day.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful post. While I can only imagine how difficult your experience was not being able to get married as planned, I am beyond delighted that Dmitry was able to provide you with your "one shining moment" while in Canada. Please know that I have shared your kind words with him and our Front Office Leaders. On behalf of our entire team here at Fairmont Vancouver Airport, I wish you all the very best and hope that we will have another opportunity to welcome you back in the future.
