VANCOUVER — Fairmont Vancouver Airport was awarded Best Airport Hotel in North America at the 2017 World Airport Awards, held in Amsterdam earlier this month. This recognition marks the sixth time in seven years that the hotel has received this prestigious award.
The 2017 World Airport Awards are the most prestigious accolades for the aviation industry and a global benchmark of airport excellence. The 2017 awards are based upon results from guest surveys which assessed hotel standards across a wide range of categories, including but not limited to the overall hotel experience, noteworthy facilities, food quality and in-room amenities.
“To win this prestigious award for the sixth time in just seven years is a great achievement for Fairmont Vancouver Airport,” says Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax. “These awards recognize hotels that combine convenience, comfort and top quality service as an integrated package for today’s air travelers and Fairmont Vancouver Airport was a high performer in all the categories to win the Best Airport Hotel in North America title this year.”
Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the only hotel located inside the Vancouver International Airport and boasts 386 triple-soundproofed guestrooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling views of the runway, ocean and mountains.
