Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel Named the Best in North America

Hotel Recognized as Continent's Best at World Airport Awards 2012

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - The Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been named as the "Best Airport Hotel in North America" at the 2012 World Airport Awards held at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Vienna, Austria. Continuing with its inaugural recognition of 2011, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel was ranked for the second year running as North America's number one airport hotel. In addition, the hotel is also named to the World's Top 10 Airport Hotels list.

The annual World Airport Survey, performed by Skytrax, collected responses from more than 12 million questionnaires distributed to passengers representing over 108 nationalities at more than 275 airports worldwide. Airline travellers voted for the world's top 10 airport hotels, with over 927,000 guests rating the comfort and cleanliness of rooms, standard of food and beverage outlets, hotel staff service quality, location and ease of transfer between terminal and hotel.

"In what is probably the most competitive worldwide market for airport accommodation, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport can be rightly proud of their achievement being named Best Airport Hotel North America. The sheer competition between the top hotel brands at airports in the U.S./Canada is not widely repeated in any other of our global award regions and the Fairmont should be pleased that customers again chose them to win this award," said Edward Plaisted of Skytrax.

"All of us at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel are delighted and proud to receive this incredible recognition for the second year in a row," said Craig Reaume, general manager. "Our incredible hotel is supported by an outstanding team of hospitality professionals who exemplify engaging service. We look forward to continuing to deliver unrivalled experiences for our guests and we would like to thank them for their loyalty."
