Our take...

The Fairmont Vancouver Hotel is conveniently located right at the Vancouver International Airport. The Airport is connected to Richmond, and Greater Vancouver by the Canada Line, our rapid transit line. The Centre of Richmond is only 10-15 minutes away, and downtown Vancouver is less than 30 minutes. There are also many shopping, and dining opportunities either at the hotel or around the airport. Amid spectacular, mountain and ocean scenery, Vancouver has emerged as the center of international commerce: the jewel of the Pacific Rim. In these surroundings, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport leads the way to a new level of luxurious and sophisticated accommodations, in addition to state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a luxuriously appointed Health Club and Spa for relaxation and breathtaking floor-to-ceiling views. The friendly staff will be glad to help in any way they can, to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
