VANCOUVER — Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been named the number-1 Airport Hotel in North America for the ninth-consecutive year and has climbed to number three 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, just 90 steps from the U.S. Departures Level, features guestrooms and suites that are fully soundproof with floor-to-ceiling views of the airport runways, Pacific Ocean, and North Shore Mountains. 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.
