Fairmont Vancouver Airport also has an award-winning restaurant and lounge, that’s open daily and serves local coastal cuisine and fantastic cocktails, set against the backdrop of mountain and runway views.

For guests that book a Fairmont Gold room or suite, they have access to all the perks that Gold offers, including access to the Fairmont Gold Lounge – which open from 6am to 10pm daily and offers breakfast, canapés and non-alcoholic beverages – alongside a complimentary shuttle service, BMW bikes and E-Bikes and free Wifi and North American calls.
