Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been named the number one Airport Hotel in North America and number five Airport Hotel in the World for the eighth consecutive year at the annual Skytrax World Airport Awards.
The World Airport Awards are the most prestigious accolades for the airport industry and based on more than 13 million questionnaires completed across 100 nationalities of airline passengers at 550 airports over a six-month period. The Airport Hotel Awards rate overall hotel experience, access from the airport to the hotel, friendliness of hotel staff, cleanliness, in-room amenities, fitness and spa facilities, quality of food and restaurant service, and value for money.
“This award is a true honour and we dedicate it to our entire team who continue to deliver extraordinary experiences for our guests and colleagues every day,” says Randall Williams, general manager of Fairmont Vancouver Airport. “We are thrilled to be recognized once again amongst the top hotels in the world.”
The luxury hotel, located directly in Vancouver International Airport, has re-defined airport accommodation. The hotel’s latest innovations include its Fit on the Fly Suite, introducing a new way to stay fit on the go with a Peloton Bike, FITBENCH ONE, yoga mat, and self-guided Nordic hydrotherapy experience. Day pass rates for the hotel’s health club with a full-service gym and pool are also available to travellers with extended layovers at YVR. The hotel offers a wellness enhancement package that can be added to any reservation, which includes a yoga mat, personal diffusers, and essential oils; family-friendly activities, and a six-passenger golf cart to shuttle guests from the hotel to airline check-ins.
Located in the airport and just 90 steps from the US Departures Level, guestrooms are fully soundproof with floor-to-ceiling views of the airport runways, ocean, and mountains. Day use rooms are available for travellers on layovers, and guests can check-in and print boarding passes in the hotel lobby.
