Tea Experience: Fairmont Vancouver Airport

Fairmont Vancouver Airport
Vancouver International Airport, Richmond, BC
Afternoon Tea $69 for Adults, $35 for Children

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel is located within the Vancouver International Airport building. You can choose to either take public transit in (via Canadaline by Translink) or drive, the Fairmont Vancouver Airport offers a 2 hour parking voucher for afternoon tea guests, which is a lovely bonus. They do have set seating times for the afternoon tea, and require reservations, so it isn’t a trip that you can just plan spur of the moment and expect a table.

I went for afternoon tea at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport with my sister, we arrived at our 2pm seating on time and were very promptly seated. Our server’s name was Curtis and he was fantastic in terms of talking to us about what was on the menu (and on the three-tier stand), as well as describing the teas. We were seated by the window, facing planes. We could see mountains in the background, and Air Canada planes in the foreground – just a beautiful, modern setting to have afternoon tea with.

I recently went to Adorabelle Tea Room, located in a heritage building that used to be the Old Courthouse (built in 1925). If you’ve never been to Steveston Village before, which is part of the city of Richmond, it’s a very quaint waterfront community that almost makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time. Fun fact, Steveston was the location for many of the Storybrooke scenes in ABC’s Once Upon A Time. Read More …

A very lovely friend treated me to afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on West Georgia Street in Vancouver. Shortly after arrival, we were whisked away to our table – we walked past people having brunch and the amazing buffet selection with everything in matching Le Creuset pans.

The table settings were beautiful, with the white cloth napkins folded so lovely like a tree. It was my first time having afternoon tea at the Fairmont, so I’m not sure if it was their usual design or if they change it up for their themes. When we were leaving, we were told that the January theme was Hollywood. Read More …
