Remember how relaxed I was in the last post? Well there is a certain voice your child uses and you just know to get up and run! While we are waiting for our WestJet plane to let everyone off, Hunter yells "Mom" and starts running for the nearest garbage can. Up comes his great meal we just had at Houstons! But since we are now getting used to this …

... it's more for your morning/afternoon commuters, not so much for tourists on a more relaxed timetable! In the afternoon, we took a walk around and old part part of the city called Gas Town. There were again a lot of touristy shops, art galleries and cafes. Also the obligatory Starbucks on almost every corner. We were lucky enough to be there at the time when the gas powered clock did its show on the ...

Sea day

A travel blog entry by gogranny


A whole day at sea as we head back towards Vancouver again.
Time for some last minute shopping on board - I got myself a Pandora Bracelet and got a Princess Teddy Bear.

We have been given very clear instructions regarding disembarkation. A questionnaire was left in our rooms earlier in the week requesting details of our travel arrangements and flight times etc, so today we were given coloured and numbered luggage tags and details ...

Canada Part Two

... Island (the arty, independent craft zone of the city) and then up to Stanley Park to have a wonder around the forest and the Aquarium.  The weather may yet scupper our plans, we were meant to be hiking today to get a good view of the city from the mountains, however, we cannot see the mountains from the city and thunder and rain are impending. The bears may have to wait...........   ...

    Amazing place to stay! Right at the airport, so neat to watch the planes come and go from our room. Great comfy beds and the biggest tub I've ever been in.

    Very surprised at having to pay for creamer to go with complimentary coffee. Free wifi in the room would have made the quiet and comfortable room better value. A relaxing and convenient place to overnight.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Fairmont Vancouver Airport Richmond



    Upon arrival at the Fairmont Airport I was greeted by the Bellman who arranged for my luggage to be delivered to my room. I then checked in and subsequently returned my rental car to Hertz. This was done in mere seconds and I walked back to the hotel. When I returned, my luggage was in the room and the garment bag was hanging in the closet. At check-in I had asked for a room with a view of the runways and the mountains and was accommodated in a King Fairmont room on the 11th floor (14 is the top, Gold floor of the hotel). The views are awesome, especially for a plane buff! I didn't watch hardly any TV; when I was in the room the action on the runways provided plenty of entertainment.

    Loved it!


    This is the only way to go if you have an early check-in! The staff are fabulous, the spa is amazing, the food is fantastic and the rooms are outstanding! You would never know you are staying at an AIRPORT!

    Great hotel- even if it's in an airport


    I stayed at the hotel on my way into and out of Vancouver. The hotel is unbelievably convenient as it is located in the airport- you can just walk to your gate- you don't have to take a shuttle like you do in most other airport hotels.

    The hotel itself is very clean and modern- and the rooms are very luxurious.

    I would stay there even if I did not need to be located at the airport

    Best when flying out of YVR


    I stayed here because I had a 6am flight out. The moment I stepped out of my cab, I was greeted by a bellhop who walked me to checkin and then on to my room. I'm used to hotels letting you fend for yourself, so this made me feel like a VIP. The room was large and luxurious, with a beautiful bathroom. The shower was marble and had a spa style shower head. There was a tub too for those preferring bathing. Toiletries are provided. The bed had a guest-spoiling comforter with duvet. And the best part is alot of the rooms have a view of the airport, yet noise is low. Try the lounge for flavoured martinis and snacks while sitting in front of the grand fireplace or watching planes taxiing into the airport. They even provided binoculars! All of the staff were friendly and efficient. Love this one!

    Simply fantastic.


    A weary 2AM arrival was quickly counter-balanced by opening the door to the greatest hotel room I've ever seen. In all, we stayed 3 days here and had zero complaints. The staff was magnificent and there were amenities at every turn. This place alone warrants another trip to Vancouver.



    When I travel between Japan and Canady, the best part of my trip is staying at the Fairmont.

    Worth every cent


    What can you say about this hotel - take a look and you will know what I mean.The hotel is a welcome sight after flying all the way from Sydney, Australia and with delays, the bed was heaven. Watching television from your bath tub is again, heaven. The room itself was very nice with views overlooking the runway, watching a Cathay Pacific 747 take off just near you is cool.The food (I had room service for dinner and breakfast) was of a very high standard and was served with a happy and smiling waiter.Collection of bags was swift and again, done with a smiling face. Overall the hotel is a real treat and is worth the cost of staying at the airport as opposed to downtown. The Fairmont is a real gem and delivers on what it promotes. The only thing I found which one could be critical was that the rooms are not completely sound proofed as the advertising suggests, but that is a small price to pay for such luxury.

    Great rooms..great time


    I had stayed at this hotel on a few occassions. I use the hotel when I have late arrivals back home from travelling. The staff is quick and efficient and always friendly. The rooms are to die for!!! the bedding is beautiful..(down quilts), large beds, and the bathroom..let me tell you. There is a large marble shower that seems to in gulf you in peaceful thoughts. The tub is something else too! You can watch t.v. from the tub as it has beautiful venitian blinds that can close. If you really want a treat you can turn on the jets in the tub.

    It is a great place to wind down froma long plane ride.



    This is a PHENOMENAL hotel. It fits the current design trend of clean chic. It's literally in the middle of the airport, and if you ask for a runway-side room, you can enjoy watching the planes roll right past your window on takeoff and landing--a plane watchers dream! But it was also exceptionally well insulated--the planes aren't a bother for noise.

    The staff at this hotel were exceptional, all really going out of their way to make me feel important. The food (and runways views) from the restaurant are excellent.

    And best of all, you roll out of bed, take the elevator to the lobby, and walk a short distance to your gate. Truly a WOW! hotel. Stay there if you can!

    Not just another airport hotel


    The Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel is like no other airport hotel I've ever seen. It's located right on the departure levels at the airport on the higher floor. The decor of the hotel is very impressive as it reflects the western heritage by the usage of wood in contrast with the use of rocks. The hotel has a spa and also a gym that overlooks the departure levels. The rooms are high tech as you can control the climate, lights and blinds with the use of your phone. One thing that I really liked was the bathrooms. The tubs are surrounded by venetian blinds that you can close or open to allow you to watch tv from it. It is so cool!!!! I also enjoyed their superb sunday brunch before my flight. No airplane food for me!!!!!
