Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been named the #1 Airport Hotel in North America for the ninth consecutive year and has climbed to #3 in the world at the annual Skytrax World Airport Awards.  

The World Airport Awards are the most prestigious accolades for the airport industry, voted by customers in the largest, annual global airport customer satisfaction survey completed across 100 nationalities of airline passengers at 550 airports from August 2022 until February 2023. The Best 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.

"It is an honour to be once again recognized as North America's Best Airport Hotel and we are thrilled to be included in the top three airport hotels worldwide," says Randall Williams, general manager of Fairmont Vancouver Airport. "This award truly showcases the hard work of our entire team and their dedication to delivering new and extraordinary experiences every day."

The luxury hotel, located directly in Vancouver International Airport, has re-defined airport accommodation. The hotel's newest innovations include a selection of wellness experiences ranging from complimentary in-room wellness rituals guided by Three Sages to its Fit on the Fly Suite, complete with a Peloton Bike, FITBENCH ONE, yoga mat, and self-guided Nordic hydrotherapy experience. Recently welcoming Harris Sakalis as executive chef, the hotel's culinary offering is set to take on an exciting new direction while continuing to highlight locally and sustainably sourced ingredients from farmers and fishers across the Pacific Northwest.

Located just 90 steps from the U.S. Departures Level, guestrooms and suites are fully soundproof with floor-to-ceiling views of the airport runways, Pacific Ocean, and North Shore Mountains. Layover meets luxury with Day Use rooms and health club passes available for travellers, while guests can check in and print boarding passes in the hotel lobby. Runway vistas and award-winning Pacific Northwest cuisine are featured in Globe@YVR restaurant, Jetside Lounge, and through its 24-hour in-room dining. The hotel also boasts a full-service day spa, a health club with an indoor mechanized resistance pool; and state-of-the-art meeting facilities with over 8,800 square feet of space.
